DIY Natural Toothpaste with doTerra
Since finding out about four months that I have hypothyroidism and now taking a prescription for it, and NOT seeing any results, I’ve decided to do some research of my own on how I can naturally make this situation better. Come to find out, fluoride being that its toxic may not be doing my thyroid a bit of good. It could be one of the many culprits, so of course, I am searching for alternatives.

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 version, but since finding this out, I decided not to. Be your own judge on whether to use glycerin in your homemade toothpaste. 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: 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
- 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.
