Remineralizing Toothpaste Recipe Ingredients
- 5 tablespoons Calcium Powder or Calcium Magnesium Powder
- 3 tablespoons Xylitol Powder or Stevia Sweetener – this just keeps it from tasting bitter
- 4 tablespoons Coconut Oil
- 1 tablespoon Baking Soda
- 2 tablespoons Bentonite Clay
- 2 tablespoons Distilled Water
- 40+ drops of Essential Oils, such as peppermint, cinnamon, or whatever you want it to taste like!
- 20-30 drops Trace Minerals, optional
Remineralizing Toothpaste Recipe Directions
- Mix all of this in a mini-food processor – except for the bentonite clay! Once this is nice and smooth, slowly mix in the clay by hand with a plastic utensil.
- Bentonite is a special clay that absorbs poisons and hard metals in your body. This is great for your mouth, but do not mix with a metal spoon. You can also make this without the clay!
- Store the mixture in a squeeze tube. The mixture should be a good consistency at room temperature, but it will be thicker in cold and thinner in hot. This is because of the coconut oil. You can make it runnier by adding water and thicker by adding more calcium.
