Home made toothpaste

Here goes the recipe for a homemade toothpaste. It’s very easy to do, the hardest part is to get all the ingredients. But we’ve found all of them in Covilhã, so it shouldn’t be a problem to get them anywhere else.


white clay – 8 spoons

liquid glycerine – 4 spoons

mint essential oil – 1 coffee spoon

clove essential oil – 1/2 coffee spoon

distilled water – 12 spoons

fennel or ginger in powder – a pinch

baking soda – 1/2 coffee spoon

 The recipe:

Mix all the ingredients and wash your teeth. It’s that easy. You can adapt the recipe, using other essential oils, leaving out baking soda, adding more or less distilled water, etc. After trying this recipe you will never buy toothpaste again.
