  • Mix together all of the dry ingredients. If you are using cacao nibs, or you find that the ingredients are too abrasive for you because you have sensitive teeth or gums, you can pulverize them in a coffee grinder. (I normally use cocoa powder, and don't grind the ingredients further, but it is an option.)
  • Add coconut oil, little by little until you reach the desired consistency. If using a silicone travel tube for storage, you may want to add a bit more to make it flow easily when dispensing. In the winter, you may use fractionated coconut oil or a different liquid oil to keep the toothpaste from solidifying.
  • Fill your silicone tube or storage containers with the toothpaste. It's now ready to use!
