DIY Tooth Whitening Recipe

We’ve shared a lot of DIY health and personal hygiene products on this blog, and for good reason. There are so many products out there that are full of chemicals and toxins, that can be easily made at home for a fraction of the cost. This whitening tooth powder is packed with beneficial ingredients you’ll want to try.



  • 4 tablespoons bentonite clay. This is a natural, mineral-rich powder that gently cleans your teeth. It also detoxifies your mouth to freshen breath and fight gum disease
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda. Baking soda is a very mild abrasive that polishes the teeth and removes stains.
  • 1½ teaspoons finely ground sea salt. This ingredient is loaded with trace minerals that help to strengthen and rebuild your teeth. Salt is also a natural antiseptic which keeps the bacteria in your mouth in check.
  • 1 ½ teaspoons unrefined stevia powder. For anyone nervous about ditching conventional toothpaste, or just picky children, stevia helps to sweeten the powder.
  • Up to 3 teaspoons flavoring of your choice. Ground cloves, cinnamon, or mint are excellent choices that also act as astringents for gum health.
  • 1 teaspoon activated charcoal. Ironically, this jet black special ingredient is what really does the work in whitening your teeth. Activated charcoal (carbon) particles bind to the tannins from coffee, tea, wine, and certain foods to lift stains away. Charcoal also helps to balance the mouth’s pH levels which aids in remineralization.


Add all ingredients to a clean glass jar with a tight-fitting lid. Attach the lid and shake thoroughly to evenly mix.

To use, simply wet your toothbrush, dip it in the powder, and brush and rinse as you would with toothpaste. 

This recipe is incredibly easy to make and use in place of conventional toothpaste made with questionable chemicals. Whip up a batch today to complete your DIY health and wellness toolkit.

  1. I have a warning about mixing in the charcoal.
    I’ve been making my own tooth powder for over a year, brushed with straight baking soda and peroxide before that – which still works best for active mouth/tooth infections.
    My recipe is close to this, with slight modifications. I use xylitol crystals that I grind into a fine powder, xylitol is the only sweet substance proven to kill cavity causing bacteria while leaving the good flora alone. I don’t trust what is sold as stevia in America either. Keep away from your pets though, they can’t process the sugar and it can be fatal in the large enough doses.

    I also use just a few drops of essential oils to flavor – personal favorite is peppermint or spearmint.

    The 2 most striking differences are that I add a tablespoon, or more, of both powdered magnesium (NOT citrate, it is not good for your enamel!) and powdered calcium. I believe this is helping to re-mineralize my teeth after years, decades, of soda pop, coffee and cigarettes. I’ve quit the soda (except for the occasional pure cane sugar Mexican edition on rare occasions) but coffee and other remains an issue.

    When I tried adding activated charcoal (which works GREAT by itself at whitening and removing stains) to my powder it actually turned my teeth an unattractive shade of beige. My teeth were rated A1 white in my younger years (but were crap thanks to modern chemistry! I was getting a bridge for tooth loss when that rating occurred, this was a decade before the ultra-white chemical smile came into vogue.

    Thankfully I was able to reverse the tan teeth with straight charcoal every couple days and a new batch of T’s Tooth Powder without the addition of the activated charcoal.

    Maybe its the combo with the coffee/cig addiction, maybe not. My advice and a couple of bucks would get you a coffee. Thanks for all that you do!
