DIY Natural Toothpaste with doTerra
Have you done your research on fluoride? It’s a toxic chemical, so you may want to look it up. I personally do not use it.
Glycerin in toothpaste
There’s been some hype about glycerin over time, leaving a film on your teeth. I was going to include it in my homemade toothpaste, but since finding this out, I decided not to. Be your own judge on whether to use glycerin in your homemade version. Making natural toothpaste with doTerra has enormous benefits because you can add what works for you and your family.
Something else to think about too is that dentists typically say that fluoride is beneficial when applied to teeth of children. But again, you be the judge.
How to Make Natural Toothpaste
- 1/4 cup baking soda
- 1/4 cup organic coconut oil (not the liquid kind)
- 1/8 tsp. real unrefined salt or Pink Himalayan salt (buy the highest quality)
- 3-5 drops doTerra OnGuard (doTerra Cinnamon essential oil can also be used in place of OnGuard)
- 5-10 drops doTerra Peppermint essential oil
- 1/4 tsp (1 packet) 100% Natural Stevia or Truvia
Note: The above picture shows a double recipe.
Mix baking soda, coconut oil, Stevia, and salt until it becomes a paste. *You may want to add the salt a little at a time for test-tasting as it WILL make the paste pretty salty, but what I’ve read about salt is that it’s an excellent mineral for your teeth. If you don’t like the salty taste, you can leave it out. Always drop essential oils last, and one drop at a time. Stir and taste.
This DIY natural toothpaste recipe is indeed one that can be tweaked after the above method has been made.
Store in a glass jar with a tight lid and use every day! Safe for kids.
