Makes 1 60 ml / 2 oz jar

Equipment

  • Preferably, don't use any metal utensils because of the clay’s absorptive properties. Wood, plastic or glass bowl and spoon are better.

Ingredients
  

  • 3 tbsp French Green Clay extra fine
  • 1 tbsp Moringa powder
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil liquid
  • 1 tbsp xylitol optional
  • 10-20 drops essential oils optional, see notes

Instructions
 

  • If your coconut oil isn't liquid, melt it in the microwave or over the stove top.
  • In a bowl (wood, plastic or glass) mix French green clay, moringa and xylitol (if using) with a spoon or spatula (also, wood, plastic, glass or silicone).
  • Now add liquid coconut oil. If using essential oils (see notes) add your preferred amount of drops to one of the tablespoons of oil before mixing it in.
  • Mix until everything is well incorporated and no lumps are left. If the toothpaste seems too crumbly, add more oil. If too runny, add more clay.
  • Store in a 60ml / 2oz container. A little glass jar works best.

Notes

  • French Clay: it's fairly important to use a superfine grade. Otherwise, your paste will rather feel like sand and might cause damage to your enamel.
  • Xylitol: is optional but will help with the bitter taste of moringa. 
  • Essential oils: I usually use 16 drops in total. My favourite combinations for this toothpaste are lemon and peppermint or cilantro and lime.
