Homemade Fluoride-Free Toothpaste

Conventional toothpaste on the market today contain an array of harmful chemicals, dyes, and toxic fluoride.  Most "natural" toothpaste also contain dangerous ingredients.  I decided to make my own all organic fluoride-free toothpaste several months ago.   It's an effective healthy alternative to using a toothpaste with toxic ingredients you can't even pronounce.  It tastes great and is simple to make!


3 T. organic coconut oil (melted)
2 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. essential peppermint oil  (or use cinnamon)
2 T. Manuka honey (strength +16)

* Make a larger quantity depending on how long you would like it to last.

Add all the ingredients into a blender, and add a small amount of hot spring water, just enough to blend.  

Pour into a small container with a lid and store in your kitchen cupboard.  It will solidify in the container.  I use a small mason jar to store my toothpaste.  All you do is dip your toothbrush into the jar of toothpaste, add the usual amount, and it will soften once you begin brushing.

  • Coconut oil is antibacterial and antifungal.   It destroys the bacteria that causes tooth decay.
  • Baking soda is a mild abrasive that provides a gentle cleansing.  Baking soda absorbs odors and whitens your teeth.
  • Peppermint oil freshens your breath and is a great reliever of toothaches.
  • Manuka honey will not only naturally sweeten the toothpaste, but it has reliable and effective antibacterial properties which assists in maintaining healthy teeth and gums.  The + number indicates the potency of Manuka honey and (+16) is the active medium level necessary for these benefits.

I hope you'll love this healthy toothpaste as much as I do!  Don't forget to floss -
