How to make natural Fluoride-Free Toothpaste at home
If you’re done with fluoride based toothpaste, I dont blame you friend! Fluoride is meant to protect our teeth, but it’s actually a poisonous chemical that can lead to cancer and can damage our nervous system. Fluoride even creates weak teeth and bones. Fluoride is common in rat poison and the Nazis used to put it in the prisoners’ water – because it’s known to placate people and make them easier to control.
Regardless of whether you knew this or not, I think its time to throw away your fluoride toothpaste. There are certainly many brands of fluoride-free toothpaste available at your local health food store or almost as easy, and likely better for you, you can just make one at home!
Before you start off making your own toothpaste, keep in mind that coconut oil is the primary item that you need. It is a key ingredient in homemade toothpastes because it’s a powerful, natural antibacterial and antifungal agent. Hence it works to kill harmful bacteria in your mouth while you brush. Moreover, Coconut oil is exceptional for your gums and brushing with it regularly can get rid of problems like bleeding and sore gums.

The oil fights the bacteria that are responsible for gingivitis. If you are a gingivitis patient, you might want to rub some coconut oil into your gums regularly, in addition to using it in your toothpaste. Brushing your tongue with the oil helps with thrush, a fungal issue that gets developed in the mouth in the mouth, and to boot, coconut oil has been known to put an end to tooth decay.
Another key ingredient in homemade toothpastes is Baking Soda. This highly versatile kitchen item is used for two primary reasons. Firstly, it is a mild abrasive that acts as a gentle cleanser. Second of all, it is alkaline in nature, which means it can help neutralize acids in your mouth that are often the root cause of tooth decay. Moreover, Baking Soda also absorbs odors and helps get rid of bad breath.
- Take equal amounts of coconut oil and baking soda.
- Start with a small amount of each. e.g Mix a tablespoon of Coconut Oil and a tablespoon of Baking Soda. Repeat.
- You may also add an essential oil, like peppermint or spearmint to add some pleasant flavoring.
- After mixing your toothpaste well enough, secure it inside a sealable glass container.
- Then just use it like you use any regular toothpaste.
Note: This homemade toothpaste does not need to be refrigerated because the Coconut Oil is antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal, which means it will help keep out toothbrush clean.
