One such natural remedy is this DIY homemade natural toothpaste. With it, you can rejuvenate your teeth and gums. Unlike store-bought toothpaste which is full of toxins and other chemicals, this toothpaste consists of powerful, natural ingredients only. 

Store-bought toothpaste contains fluoride, triclosan, and sodium lauryl sulfate, among other dangerous toxins. 

Unfortunately, triclosan is a known endocrine disruptor that can cause changes in hormone regulation. What’s more, sodium lauryl sulfate is a potential carcinogen and irritant that can cause gum irritation. 

Fluoride is known for having a negative effect on the pineal gland and bones. On the other hand, this natural toothpaste is free of harmful toxins.

It will refresh your breath, keep your teeth and gums in optimal health, and improve your oral health.

DIY Homemade Natural Toothpaste: For White Teeth & Strong Gums

You’ll need:

  • Organic coconut oil
  • Baking soda
  • Turmeric
  • Peppermint extract
  • A clean container


In a bowl, add two spoons of coconut oil. Add two spoons of baking soda as well. Add a tsp of turmeric. 

Drop 10 to 15 drops of peppermint extract, although this is an optional step. With a wooden spoon, mix the ingredients to make a smooth and homogenous mixture. 

Keep the toothpaste in an airtight container in the fridge. Take a small amount of toothpaste when you need and then close the container. 

Use it as you would use regular toothpaste. Avoid dipping the toothbrush into the paste, but rather take the paste from the container and apply it to the brush.

The Health Benefits of the Ingredients

Baking soda is an abrasive age that helps whiten the teeth. 

Coconut oil is abundant in lauric acid. This acid possesses anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. 

Turmeric in this paste is added because of its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial characteristics.
