Non-Toxic, Homemade Toothpaste (Recipe)

There’s been a lot of controversy about fluoride lately. You may have seen the Natural News editorial piece about the dangers of fluoridation in water. Some cities have even stopped fluoridating their water. Yet other cities that never added fluoride have recently started. Fluoride even occurs naturally in the water in some places.

With all the controversy, concern and uncertainty, this much is certain: using a toothpaste that contains potentially harmful fluoride just doesn’t make sense. You need a fluoride-free toothpaste recipe that tastes great and works effectively. You need what this post is offering.

To avoid drugging yourself with fluoride toothpaste, you could buy something like the Himalaya Neem and Pomegranate toothpaste. It’s a fluoride-free toothpaste that works very well. Or you could make your own toothpaste that tastes even better and costs a lot less.

Coconut Oil Homemade Fluoride-Free Toothpaste Recipe

For a toothpaste that won’t make you nauseous, doesn’t taste bad and will actually get used, try this formula:
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons baking soda
  • 25 drops peppermint oil
  • 1 packet stevia
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable-based glycerin, optional
To prepare, mash the coconut oil and baking soda together with a fork until blended together. Then add in the peppermint oil, sweetener and glycerin and mash some more until your concoction is the texture of toothpaste. If you choose not the use the glycerin, expect a lumpy mixture, but it will still do the job. Glycerin adds to the sweetness a bit too.

But Does It Work?

If you mean does it actually clean teeth, the answer is a resounding yes. It’s minty, cleans very well and leaves a very nice mouth feel. Plus, teeth actually sparkle.

Remember that coconut oil solidifies in cold temperatures and gets runny in hot temperatures, so the consistency may change with the temperature in your house. Just keep the mixture in a jaw and dip you brush in it to use. Obviously, clean the jar thoroughly or switch to a different jar with each new batch.

You could even pipe this stuff into an old toothpaste tube or another kind of tube by putting it in a bag, cutting off the corner and squeezing it in through the little hole -- if you really want to.

There’s no reason to worry about fluoride. Use this fluoride-free homemade toothpaste recipe and also filter the fluoride from your drinking water. Then, there’s no controversy at all -- and no fluoride going into your body.
