DIY All Natural Toothpaste and Mouthwash


Before we get started, go grab your toothpaste, mouthwash, and reading glasses. Seriously, go. I’ll wait. Ok cool, now flip it over and take a look at the ingredients. If you see any of these things: sodium lauryl sulfate, propylene glycol, sorbitol, artificial color, alcohol or sodium fluoride, toss it! You don’t want those chemicals being absorbed into your body, and if you have children you don’t want those kinds of poisons hanging out on your bathroom sink – you deserve better! These recipes for toothpaste and mouthwash are inexpensive, toxin-free, and effective. Coconut oil is known for promoting healthy gums, and baking soda gently cleanses away stains for a killer grin. No need to add tiny breath strips, or a bright blue color. We want to take care of our mouths and bodies as best we can, and a good rule of thumb is if you can’t eat it, don’t use it.

Jar of Smiles Toothpaste​


  • 2 Tbsp. organic coconut oil
  • 2 Tbsp. organic baking soda
  • 2 Tbsp. stevia powder (optional, but it cuts the saltiness)
  • 20 drops organic essential oil (I use peppermint, but cinnamon would also be fabulous)


  • Mix it all together to form a paste
  • Store in an air tight container.

Now, keep in mind, this toothpaste won’t suds up – suds in toothpaste (and lots of other products) are caused by chemicals, and we don’t want those! My whole family uses this recipe and love it; we’ve even noticed whiter teeth!

Keep it Fresh Mouthwash​


  • 1 cup water
  • 10 – 15 drops essential oil of your choice (peppermint, cinnamon, or tea tree are all great options)​


  • Pour the water and essential oils in a jar or bottle with a lid and give it a good shake.
  • Take a swig, swish, and spit. ​

What I love about this mouthwash is that it’s alcohol free and doesn’t burn, but still leaves your mouth feeling cool and refreshed naturally.

Happy grins 🙂
