The more we learn about how toxic and unhealthy most commercial body care products are, the more we realize we can not leave the daily health and care of our precious bodies to someone else. It’s sad, but more and moreÂ I am finding out about ingredients in brands I’ve trusted for years, and decades even, only to learn about how really toxic these are for our bodies. What a bummer to learn all this.
The coolÂ thingÂ is when we realize: we are not victims – we have control over what we can use on our bodies! We don’t HAVE to use toxic products, and it’s really pretty simple (and quick) to make most of our own. I think that’s exciting.
Take toothpaste, for example. One of the things I enjoy making (so simple, really) is homemade toothpaste. If you’ve never made your own before, you’re in for a treat, friend! You can totally customize it and flavor it how YOU want.
Here are 8 homemade toothpaste recipes. The ingredients are inexpensive and wholesome, and you can totally take these and make them your own.

I love using peppermint, cinnamon, clove, wild orange essential oils to name a few ways to flavor homemade toothpaste.

Concerning homemade toothpaste. I’d like to mention this in case it helps someone.
I had a conversation with my Dental Hygienist, who I’ve gone to about 15 years. She’s one of the best in the area and has taught in Dental Schools as well. She mentioned one of her patients once tried going the route of homemade toothpaste. They didn’t include fluoride and came in with a mouth full of cavities. The hygienist said that this patient thought they were doing the right thing by doing something more natural, but it didn’t turn out so well for them.
She told me if i were to use something homemade, such as a clay, to find something that has naturally occurring fluoride in it.
Thanks for the helpful comment. I must say, my kids have never used a fluoride toothpaste and all four kids have never had a cavity, so far. Diet also plays a huge role in this. However, everyone is responsible for their own oral health (and their children’s too). Naturally occurring fluoride is great in proper amounts, it’s the hazardous toxic kind I really have a problem with. A good source of naturally occurring fluoride can be found in cell salts. Readers can find out more here: – hope this helps! 🙂
Dentist are not educated in any alternative method of preventing cavities or the advantages of fluoride free toothpastes. They have been trained that fluoride prevents cavities. Which is completely false! It’s all one big conspiracy to push fluoride containing toothpastes into every American household. They put toxic fluoride into the paste that’s used multiple times daily by every citizen, tell us it’s what we need to keep our teeth healthy thus causing us to fear using anything else, over time it actually causes cavities and other dental problems, so we go to dentists for fillings and corrective procedures, then continue to use the toxic junk, end up back at the dentist office. We are keeping dentist in business with our cavities caused by the fluoride in the toothpastes they give us for free at each visit! We keep toothpaste companies and dentist all rich. I’m not saying fluoride is the only thing that causes cavities. Diet plays a part also. I’ve not used fluoride in toothpaste or water for 20 years and my teeth are perfect and cavity free. Both my children are 20+ and haven’t used fluoride in 20 years with not one cavity EVER! Other countries do not use fluoride and have a high percentage of less cavities. Fluoride is just another thing the Government, FDA and doctors use to keep us sick so they stay rich!
