Recipe for homemade toothpaste without baking soda

Baking soda has abrasive properties. Used too often or in too large a quantity, it can damage your tooth enamel and irritate and weaken your gums. That’s why some people prefer to avoid using it in their home toothpaste.

Here is a recipe where we replace baking soda with calcium carbonate (blanc de Meudon), which is much gentler on teeth. We also add xylitol for its anti-caries properties and cosgard which is a natural preservative.

  1. Difficulty: Easy
  2. Preparation time: about 10 minutes
  3. Quantity: about 130 grams
  4. Efficiency: 5/5

Ingredients :

  • 50 g of blanc de Meudon (calcium carbonate)
  • 30 g of white clay
  • 40 ml of water
  • 1 teaspoon of virgin coconut oil
  • 20 drops of essential oils of your choice
  • 1 tablespoon of xylitol
  • 25 drops of cosgard

Materials needed:

Avoid metal utensils, which can react with the clay.

  • 2 bowls
  • Two spoons (or one that you clean between each step)
  • A jar with a lid to store your toothpaste

Preparation steps:

  • In a bowl, mix the blanc de Meudon, clay, and water.
  • In another bowl, mix the coconut oil and xylitol.
  • Add the xylitol, then add the essential oils.
  • Add the second combination to the first, and mix and mix until smooth.
  • Add the cosgard and mix.
  • our the toothpaste into a covered jar for storage.
  • Cover the jar to preserve it.


Dampen your toothbrush.
Place a little toothpaste on it with a small spatula or a small spoon (or other). Don’t dip the toothbrush directly into the toothpaste jar, so as not to contaminate it. Don’t use your fingers either, for the same reason.
Brush your teeth as usual
