My homemade toothpaste is fluoride-free, preservative-free, glycerin-free – and tastes good! Make your own DIY natural toothpaste with doTerra, and I bet you’ll never use anything else! I use 100% pure Essential Oils in all my DIY’s.
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 it better. Come to find out, fluoride being that its toxic is not doing my thyroid a bit of good. It could be one of the many culprits, so of course, I am searching for alternatives.

There’s been some hype that the use of glycerin over time will leave a film on your teeth. I was going to include it in my homemade version but read where it’s not any good either. Be your own judge on that.
Dentists typically say that fluoride is beneficial when applied to the teeth of children. But again, you be the judge.
DIY Natural Toothpaste with doTerra
- 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 or doTerra Cinnamon essential oils (my doTerra link)
- 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 – as it WILL make the paste pretty salty – but what I’ve read salt is 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 toothpaste recipe is certainly one you can tweak once you have made the above. Store in a glass jar with tight lid and use every day! Safe for kids.
