Kid-Friendly Squeezable Homemade Toothpaste & How to Say 'No' to Dentists
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, solid form
  • 3 tablespoons boiling water to thin, more as needed
  • ¾ teaspoon unrefined high mineral salt (you can buy it at some wholesale clubs)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons Bentonite clay
  • 1/4 teaspoon Thieves essential oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon Peppermint essential oil
  • ground stevia (optional)
  1. Blend together the coconut oil and water.
  2. Let cool slightly. Add salt, baking soda and essential oil.
  3. Mix in the bentonite clay and then slowly add more water, if needed, a tablespoon at a time.
  4. Once it's smooth, you're ready to fill your 3-ounce tube.
  5. Once you scoop the toothpaste into the tube, you're good to go. Use it to brush just like you normally would.
  6. We don't use the stevia, but our kids aren't big sugar people. Add about 1 teaspoon at the same time as the salt if your child needs it.
