Bentonite Clay Toothpaste

I noticed one day that my teeth had begun to get brittle.  My tooth literally just broke one day.  So I started looking up ways to strengthen my teeth.  I came across a few recipes combined added my own special touch and this is what I got.  I've been using this toothpaste for about 10 weeks.   Some recipes claimed whiter teeth.  Mine are possibly a little whiter (maybe more wishful thinking than reality) but my teeth feel clean, my breath seems fresh so I'm going with it!  I haven't been to the dentist yet for a check up and cleaning.  I'm going to wait until I've been using my toothpaste for about 6 months and then see how it goes.

For now here is the recipe:

1/3 Cup Bentonite Clay
1/4 Cup Boiling Water
1 T Coconut Oil
1/4 t Real Salt
Trace Mineral Drops - 15 drops
On Guard Essential Oil - 1 drop
Clove Essential Oil - 3 drops
Peppermint Essential Oil - 15 drops

Boil water. Add all the ingredients except the Bentonite Clay and stir.
Add the Bentonite Clay and mix with hand mixer until combined.
It should be the consistency of clay.  Store in covered glass jar.

I bought the Bentonite Clay at my local health food store.  They sell 2oz containers which is about 1/3 of a cup.  I also got the Trace Mineral Drops from the health food store.  And I use Doterra Essential Oils.

  1. Homemade toothpaste. Wow, very McGyver! I may have to jot this down and save it for reference. The thing I like about this 'homemade toothpaste' thing is that you get to set the way to improve your teeth, as well as formulate it yourself. Sensitivity can also be a problem, but you can probably tweak it as per your own needs. Thanks for sharing!
