Fight cavities and gingivitis naturally with homemade DIY Oral health

Homemade toothpaste
Most Viewed Articles

(NaturalNews) Forget buying toothpaste, reading all of those ingredients, wondering if you can recycle the toothpaste tube or not. Make your own toothpaste, mouthwash, and more. There's nothing you can get in the store that will do as well as these recipes. But remember, there's nothing you can do for your gums and teeth that will heal them and keep them healthy without eating a healthy diet.

Your mouth emulates the health of your gut. Disease starts in the gut, and that's true for everyone except for the few people who smoke but eat very well. Smoking (tobacco, marijuana, anything) is extremely bad for the teeth and the gums. That's not to say that if you choose to smoke you should not use these homemade recipes, it's just that your teeth and gums will deteriorate if you do not take care of the rest of the body. These formulas can reduce the deterioration rate, or, if the body is taken care of, they will accelerate the healing, reverse cavities, remove inflammation, eliminate infection, and whiten.

One other exception, and an unfortunately common one, is someone who takes very good care of their body's, but is stuck with mercury fillings. These fillings will also deteriorate teeth and gum health, but there are steps you can take that will significantly reduce their health consequences.

Homemade Remineralizing and Whitening Toothpaste Recipe

Make your own remineralizing toothpaste with calcium, magnesium, stevia, coconut oil and essential oils to help your teeth stay strong and your gums stay healthy.


  • 5 parts calcium/magnesium powder (the best calcium and magnesium for this can be obtained with this homemade calcium recipe http://www.organiclifestylemagazine.com)
  • 2 parts baking soda
  • 1 part unrefined sea salt, finely ground
  • 3-5 parts coconut oil to get desired texture
  • Optional ingredients: Essential oils for flavor and/or kill germs (mint, cinnamon, tea tree, peppermint, orange), and stevia (takes very little)


  • Mix calcium, salt, and baking soda in a bowl
  • Add coconut oil, one part at a time until you reach the desired consistency
  • Add any optional ingredients
  • Store in small glass container.
Hydrogen peroxide is added to many home toothpastes, especially those formulated for whitening. But hydrogen peroxide is one of those ingredients you are not supposed to swallow and it can irritate the gums. It is not a good idea for kids or for anyone with sensitive, damaged, or diseased gums.

Homemade Earthpaste Recipe

If you like the earthy shampoos and soaps, then this toothpaste formula is right up your alley:


  • 4 Tbsp bentonite clay
  • Distilled water
  • 5 drops tea tree oil
  • 5 drops liquid stevia
  • 10 drops peppermint essential oil
  • 2 Tsp unrefined sea salt


  • Combine 2 tablespoons of water with the bentonite clay in a glass bowl and mix well using a non-metal spoon (clay can't come in contact with metal)
  • Add tea tree oil, stevia, and peppermint essential oils
  • Add salt, mix well
  • Add water to taste and texture.
  • Store toothpaste in a glass with a lid (the toothpaste will dry out over time if left uncovered)

Oil Pulling

Traditionally, sesame oil was used, but these days coconut oil is more often recommended, and it's my preference as well. To increase the potency of this protocol, use essential oils, such as peppermint, cinnamon, or clove. Tea tree oil and oil of oregano are two good options, but they can get really intense. Start off with just a small amount.

Here are some suggestions with the essential oils for oil pulling. Add these to a tablespoon of coconut oil.
  • For bad breath: 2 drops of cinnamon, spearmint, or peppermint essential oil
  • Toothache: 2 drops of clove or tea tree essential oil, or one of each
  • Canker sores: 2 drops of holy basil essential oil.
  • Gum disease: 2 drops of cinnamon, clove, or tea tree essential oil.
  • Receding gums: Add 2 drops of Myrrh essential oil.
  • Cavities: 2 drops of clove or tea tree essential oil, or one of each
  • Any infection in the mouth: 2 drops of clove or tea tree essential oil, or one of each

How to Oil Pull

Swish the oil around in your mouth (like you would with mouthwash) and pull through the teeth, for 15 to 20 minutes. Don't swish hard, or your cheeks will get sore very quickly.

Spit it out! Do not sallow it. That oil gets nasty, and it's better to dispose of it than swallow it. Follow with tooth brushing, or at least thoroughly rinsing the mouth. And don't spit it out in the sink. The oil could stop it up.


Gum disease is not only avoidable, it is, contrary to conventional opinion, completely reversible.
