Natural Oral Care

The ethos of My Magic Mud is to use only the best, wholesome ingredients Mother Earth has to offer; the kind you’d find at a local farmers market, hand crafted with love.

Below is a comprehensive list of ingredients that we’ve chosen for our natural oral care products. The standard by which our founder, Jessica Arman, determines which ingredients to use, is whether she’d allow her own children to brush with them.

We hope you’ll find this directory of natural oral care ingredients helpful.

Ingredients and their benefits for natural oral care:

Activated Coconut Shell Charcoal

Activated Coconut Shell Charcoal whitens teeth through a process called “adsorption” as opposed to “absorption”. It literally pulls out strains from the pores of the teeth. What we see as a solid stain is actually residue from food or beverages trapped in tiny holes that naturally form in our teeth enamel. The charcoal fits inside these pores and is negatively charged. For more information about our activated coconut shell charcoal, please click here.

Bentonite Clay

Bentonite Clay pulls impurities, toxins, and bacteria from the mouth. It remineralizes the teeth. The minerals that are present in our teeth get striped away because of the food we eat, the water we drink, and the environment. The clay is filled with minerals. The minerals get deposited back into the teeth which helps rebuild the enamel. It removes plaque with every use. For more information about our bentonite clay, please click here.

Diatomaceous Earth Food Grade-Organic

Diatomaceous Earth is a sedimentary mineral rock. It’s the remains of algae that once thrived in the ocean. The algae died and formed massive deposits. Diatomaceous earth was originally mined as tooth powder. It’s made up of 85% Silica, which is an essential mineral required by tendons, cartilage, blood vessels and promote healthy bones. The abrasive action is gentle enough for teeth, but strong enough to remove plaque and tartar. It also promotes healthy tooth enamel which prevents tooth decay and receding gums.

Tea Tree Oil-Organic

Tea Tree Oil is an essential oil from the tea tree, also known as the melaleuca. Don’t let the name confuse you. This tree has nothing to do with the tea you drink. It was actually named by British sailors who were looking for something to drink to replace their missing tea. The melaleuca has been used for centuries for its antiseptic, antibacterial, and antimicrobial properties. For more information about our tea tree oil, please click here.

Coconut Oil-Organic

Coconut Oil is an edible oil extracted from the kernel or meat of mature coconuts. It’s a natural tooth whitener and detoxifies the mouth and pulls out impurities. The coconut oil relieves gum and tooth sensitivity while it removes plaque. For more information about our coconut oil, please click here.

Grapefruit Seed Extract

Grapefruit Seed Extract is a liquid derived from the seeds, pulp, and white membranes of grapefruit. The benefits include its anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and antifungal properties which help your oral health while naturally preserving the quality of our paste and powder. For more information about our grapefruit seed extract, please click here.

Sweet Orange Oil-Organic

Sweet Orange Oil is an essential oil produced inside the rind of oranges. You’ve probably already heard of the powerful cleansing ability of this oil which is often used as a natural household cleanser. Orange oil is also anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and antimicrobial. It is also an antioxidant. For more information about our sweet orange oil, please click here.


Rosemary Oilis produced by harvesting the leaves and using a steam distillation process to extract the pure essential oil. We use it because of its natural anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. For more information about our rosemary oil, please click here.

Vanilla Extract-Organic

Vanilla Extract comes from the fruit of a special orchid flower originally found only in southern Mexico. The extract is removed from beans that grow in long skinny pods.  Vanilla is, of course, well-known around the world for its wonderful and easily recognizable flavor and smell. But vanilla has anti-inflammatory and antioxidants propertiesFor more information about our vanilla extract, please click here.


Xylitol, despite its unusual name, is the only known “tooth-friendly”, naturally occurring sweetener. It is a sugar alcohol which has fewer calories than table sugar and digests very slowly if at all. Xylitol is found in the fiber of many trees, fruits, and vegetables. Xylitol actually prevents the growth of bacteria by blocking their metabolism and is a primary ingredient in many chewing gums that prevent tooth decay. For more information about our xylitol, please click here.


Stevia is a zero-calorie, intensely sweet, and completely natural substitute for sugar. The active compounds of stevia are called steviol glycosides and are up to 150 times as sweet as sugar. By replacing the table sugar, we’re denying an important food source to the bacteria that cause cavities and gum disease. For more information about our stevia, please click here.

What People Are Saying
  • “I absolutely love their products! I have been on a journey of cleaning out all toxic products in my life because of the things I found that can cause issues in your body with your hormones. I was so glad that these products use clean and safe ingredients for my entire family! I can confidently use this tooth paste and know that it is not adding toxins into my body.

  • “Our household has been using the My Magic Mud, Activated Charcoal Oral Rinse( Alcohol Free) for about 2 weeks now. When we first got it and opened it, I have to say the smell was extremely strong but when you rinse with it, it’s not as strong as it smells. I love how clean my mouth feels after using this product. I don’t typically use mouth wash because I just don’t like the taste of them. With the My Magic Mud, the taste is so smooth it doesn’t bother me. I recommend this product to anyone looking for a new mouth rinse.

  • “I’ve been using it for a year and I’ve tried the wintergreen and spearmint but I would have to say peppermint is my favourite because of how the peppermint feels. It is also super natural and safe that I put it on my hives that I had and they went away and felt instantly better after I put it on! I love this product so much :)

  • “Received some at the Natural Products Expo; really love it and came looking for a Cyber Monday Deal. All I want for Christmas is a water filter and this toothpaste! For some reason, it makes me enjoy brushing my teeth. I'm slowly switching out all toxic products in my household, and am very happy with the ingredients (and results) of Magic Mud. I like the paste when I'm short on time, and the powder for a deep clean. One quick wipe will do the trick for keeping your sink clean - 10 seconds tops. Don't use it for your first time while you're running late for work though

  • “I love MAGIC MUD! I've been using it for the past few years and I will not be going back to anything else. I began using Magic Mud because I was getting burns on the corners of my mouth from regular toothpaste. I actually bought some at the New Braunfels farmers market the first time and was completely sold by my second use. I'm so proud to use a local product too.

  • “I'd been curious about/following this page for months, but I'd found it right after I bought a more expensive (almost double the price!) whitening toothpaste. I was lucky enough to win a tube of the paste right around Thanksgiving. The customer service was incredible, and shipping was super-fast! I noticed a difference immediately: within the first two weeks, it had outperformed the more expensive paste - without tooth sensitivity!! I just bought the polish too, because I figure it's probably a great boost - and I intend to be a long-term customer. Thank you for making this product!! I'm already smiling more, and I love that my nephews are creeped out/fascinated by it

  • “Love the name, love the packaging, love the flavor, love the clean-feeling teeth, but more than anything i just love the dirty grimy black n' nasty "sludgemouth" i get when using this glorious product. sure it might stain the ol' kitchin sink a little bit but a little desecration and blasphemy never hurt anybody amirite??? After being prescribed/pushed/recommended "extra-strength extra-fluoride prescription toothpaste [clinpro 5000]" from my dentist, i proudly and brazenly hucked that abominable tube of sorry toothlube away forever once i picked up a ripe slice of this unholy magma I recommend the motherlovin' heck out of this abzu-lutely lifechanging product

  • “My Magic Mud is the most natural dentifrice on the market. The product is full of surprises as it both cleans your teeth and makes them whiter. Imagine using a black toothpaste to make your teeth SPARKLE.

    Donald Newman, DDS
  • “I am a Biological Dentist and “My Magic Mud” is a product I use being that it is 100% all natural, improves your oral health and makes your teeth brighter and whiter.

    Dr. Merrily M. Sandford, DDS
