  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp baking soda
  • 2-3 packets natural sweetener
  • 25 drops essential oil of your choice


  • Warm the coconut oil on low heat as you slowly mix in the baking soda, the natural sweetener packets, and your chosen essential oil.
  • Once they are thoroughly mixed, turn off the heat and allow it to cool as you continue stirring. 
  • Before your natural toothpaste hardens, pour it into a small jar (miniature jam jars from hotels work great) and allow it to fully cool.
