D.I.Y. Toothpaste (Coconut Oil)


  • Coconut Oil
  • Optional: 1-2 drops Essential Oil s (for toothpaste flavour)
  • Optional: bicarb soda to make it more abrasive


  • Brush teeth and mouth as normal. Brush tongue.
  • Rinse mouth with water.
  • Don't spit coconut oil into the sink - it hardens when cold so can over time cause sink clogging, so spit into a bag/bin or outside.


You can mix a batch of coconut oil with a bit of bicarb soda to make it more abrasive if you want, but the most important thing for your daily teeth-brushing needs is to "disturb" the bacteria so that they cannot form plaque.
