A Homemade Toothpaste Recipe That’s Inexpensive And Makes Sense

Who wants fluoride in their toothpaste? The sensible approach to buying toothpaste is not to do it. Instead, make the best fluoride-free toothpaste using this simple recipe or some version of it, then you’ll always know what’s in the stuff you put in your mouth. And you’ll be avoiding lots of other toxic and potentially harmful chemicals too.

There’s been a lot of controversy about fluoride in the news recently. You may have seen the opinion piece that Natural News did about it. Cities and individuals can’t make up their minds whether it’s harmful or not, but why take a risk when there’s an inexpensive and sensible alternative?

In some places, natural mountain water has fluoride in it, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s safe to drink. And it certainly doesn’t mean this chemical should be added to toothpaste that we scrub into our mouths every day.


The Homemade Toothpaste Recipe You Need

To get started making homemade toothpaste, you need a toothpaste recipe. You can develop your own or use one of the many you’ll find online or in books. After some trial and error, here’s how I make my homemade toothpaste:

In a bowl, mash 3 tablespoons of coconut oil with the same amount of baking soda. Once it’s combined, add 25 drops of peppermint essential oil, a packet of stevia and 2 tablespoons of glycerin. Then, mash it all together again until it looks and feels like toothpaste. You can leave out the glycerin, if you like, but the paste will be lumpy and a little less sweet.

Store the stuff in a jar and dip the brush in to get what you need. If you’re concerned with contaminating the jar from your brush, spoon out a bit with a baby spoon or salt spoon. You can even put the concoction into a tube of some kind and use it like store-bought toothpaste.


So How Does It Work?

This homemade toothpaste recipe makes a great-tasting toothpaste that you and your family will enjoy using. And there’s no controversy. When you make toothpaste and other personal grooming and household products yourself, there’s no cause for concern of any kind. You know what’s in them, and you can see the results for yourself.

Others have their own homemade toothpaste recipes, and most of the ones our there are much more sensible than the array of chemicals and questionable ingredients manufacturers put into theirs. Which do you think you’d prefer?
