Remineralizing toothpaste is toothpaste that is supposed to help your teeth get healthier and whiter by adding more minerals. Not all dentists think this is possible, but this is a great toothpaste either way. The clay in this recipe cleans your teeth, the cocoa and xylitol reduce cavities, cinnamon and ginger reduce inflammation, and the cocoa also helps to harden your teeth.
Only mix this in stainless bowls or glass bowls as the clay is reactive to metal.
- 4 Tbs coconut oil
- 4 Tbs bentonite clay
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 2 Tbs Xylitol
- 1/2 tsp cacao powder No sugar - not cocoa with added sugar!
- 1 1/2 tsp ginger powder
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp vitamin e
Melt coconut oil over low heat.
Mix powders thoroughly in a separate bowl.
Add 1 Tbs of the oil and mix with the powders to form a crumbly mass.
Mix in vitamin E and remaining coconut oil, mixing thoroughly.
Slowly and thoroughly mix in up to 4 Tbs water. Use a handheld blender if necessary.
Pour into one or more containers totaling at least 3/4 cup. Let cool thoroughly.
Thank you for the recipe! I just tweaked the process a little; I combined the oils in a separate bowl and then slowly added the dry ingredient mix to the bowl with oils in it. And then I added the (filtered) water 1 Tbs at a time. I ended up adding a couple of extra tablespoons of water because it wasn’t liquidy enough to pour. It ended up filling one 4 oz container and a second container of the same size about half-way.
