Making Homemade Toothpaste: Recipes

 
All Natural Toothpaste Recipe
1/4 cup Vegetable Glycerin
1/4 cup Baking Soda
10 to 15 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil (food grade)
  • Directions: Too easy! Just mix the ingredients together and voila! homemade toothpaste.
What this clever gal did was cut open an empty (used) tube of toothpaste, cleaned out the inside then scooped the homemade toothpaste into the toothpaste tube. Fold over the cut end of the tube then secure with a toothpaste squeezer or packaging clamp. This one’s goopy and can be a bit runny so it’s not thick and pastey like commercial toothpaste (which may take a bit of getting used to), but it does the trick and it’s so cheap to make!
 
Quick Toothpaste Recipe:
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp hydrogen peroxide
  • Mix into paste then brush teeth

Those are cool.  I've done the baking soda and peroxide.  It doesn't taste too good.

Quoting 4kidz916:

Maybe crush up some mint or use mint oil in the mixture?   I agree though it does not taste good.  I have had to do peroxide/water gargles due to a bite to my lip.
