12+ Recipes For Making Homemade Toothpaste

Posted By Tipnut On March 25, 2011 @ 9:20 am In Home Spa | 14 Comments

JarHere’s an assortment of ideas for making homemade toothpaste plus a couple tips for DIY teeth whiteners (those are found at the bottom of the page).

If you’re looking for ways to save money or use more natural ingredients than most commercial products offer, there’s surely something here that will suit your needs. I’ve moved the mouthwash recipes to this page [1] (just a couple so far).

A Few Quick Tips:

  • Cut open an empty (used) tube, clean out the inside then scoop mixture into it. Fold over the cut end then secure with a squeezer or packaging clamp.
  • To keep things easy, can also store in small glass jars with a tight fitting lid (such as a baby food jar), just make sure it’s sterilized first. To use: Simply dip the brush into the mix and use as a regular paste.
  • When adding essential oils (EO) for flavor or extra cleaning power, make sure to use those that are “food grade”.
  • Flavor ideas: Vanilla, Cinnamon; Mint; Orange; Lemon.

First up, here’s a quick & easy paste to try:

  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp hydrogen peroxide

Directions: Mix together before using.

I’ve listed a dozen different ideas below that I’ve handpicked from around the ‘net with each having something different to offer. I’ll be adding more to this page as I come across something new, enjoy!
