There are five reasons why we choose to make our toothpaste:

1. Toothpaste packaging produces too much unnecessary waste.

2. Some ingredients in commercially available traditional toothpaste (e.g., triclosan, glycerin, sodium lauryl sulfate, fluoride, etc.) are controversial.

3. The toothpaste recipe is very simple, and you can achieve great results by making it yourself.

4. Save money

5. In a world where you can buy anything, making your toothpaste is a magical, fun, and rewarding novelty.

The container

Containers are one of the key indicators of happiness at home.  The right container will significantly enhance your sense of beauty and give you a sense of what’s called “object beauty.”

Our beautiful, reusable zero-waste containers of choice are glass bottles and small aluminum cans.

Choose a jam jar/aromatherapy jar/candy jar you bought earlier and reuse it.  Congratulations, you now own the same toothpaste jar you’ll never find in the supermarket.

Small aluminum boxes have a confident and bold temperament, which is a home travel essential magic.

It has accompanied me on many trips and is not only used for homemade toothpaste, but also creams, jewelry, makeup removers, and more, making it one of our top zero-waste goods

Don’t buy cheap plastic boxed boxes. You deserve better.


Raw materials required:

2 tablespoons baking soda

Baking soda’s alkalinity neutralizes the PH in the mouth and has a mild abrasive effect that can remove stains from teeth.

2. Coconut oil 4 tablespoons

Coconut oil can help boost the microbiome in the gut (remember, the gut starts in the mouth!).  It also protects against candida.  Coconut oil has also been shown to help prevent tooth decay.

3. A little natural xylitol (up to 1 teaspoon)

Xylitol can reduce the number of bacteria in the mouth that cause cavities.  But be careful not to add too much, as it is a sweetener and too much can make your taste buds crave sweetness.

4. 5-10 drops peppermint essential oil

(Add as you like, not too much)

Blend the flavor of toothpaste to freshen your breath.  Use essential oils such as citrus if you prefer.

Recipe 2: Dentist’s recommendation – Chocolate toothpaste

Raw materials required:

1 Tablespoon baking soda

2. Coconut oil 4 tablespoons

2 Tablespoons xylitol

4. Food grade bentonite 4 tablespoons

A natural polish is rich in minerals that help neutralize the PH in the mouth.

5. 1 TBSP cocoa powder

The ideal DIY toothpaste is chocolate toothpaste, as the compounds in cocoa beans promote remineralization better than fluoride (and are safer).  It’s also a safer abrasive — like polishing jewelry with ground walnuts.

6. 4 tablespoons of distilled or filtered water

Production steps

1. Disinfect glass jars/aluminum boxes at high temperatures.

2. In a small saucepan, heat coconut oil over low heat until melted, 1 to 2 minutes.

3. Add baking soda, xylitol, cocoa powder, essential oil, etc., and mix well.

4. Place the DIY toothpaste in a glass jar/aluminum case.


1. For the first time, make only a small amount.

Adjust the recipe of DIY toothpaste according to the feeling of use.  Baking soda, coconut oil, and other raw materials of toothpaste are very practical materials in daily life.

2. To protect the health of your teeth, clean your teeth every six months or once a year as recommended by your dentist.

3. When buying DIY toothpaste ingredients, try to buy biodegradable (paper/paper) or reusable packaging (glass/aluminum cans).
