DIY Fluoride-FreeToothpaste

Learn to make your own refreshing and tasty toothpaste at home.

 • 3 tablespoons organic baking soda
• 3 tablespoons coconut oil
• 2 teaspoons glycerin
• A few drops of stevia or 1 packet of xylitol (which also fights tooth decay)
• 20 drops of peppermint or cinnamon oil
• Glass jar with lidI am wary of overexposure to fluoride. You will be getting some naturally, as it is in the tap water, so having fluoride in your toothpaste is often redundant and could be harmful if not monitored. I like this tasty and refreshing DIY toothpaste, and my daughter Charlotte Rumi Rose loves making it with me. Coconut oil is known to be an antibacterial agent, and it helps fight tooth decay. To increase the whitening effect, you can add a drop of hydrogen peroxide to the paste.1. Mix the baking soda, coconut oil, glycerin, and stevia or xylitol together (it helps if the coconut oil is a little warm)
2. Add the peppermint or cinnamon oil.
3. Transfer to the glass jar.
4. To use, dip your toothbrush into the jar.
5. Stored out of direct sunlight, it will keep for 6 to 9 months.
