Fluoride Free Tooth Paste

August 27, 2013

It is ridiculous that there is still fluoride in toothpaste, given the toxicity of fluoride. It is not enough to make an effort to bypass fluoride in water and food. Toothpaste – especially for children – should be fluoride-free too. Most of the cleaning of the teeth is achieved by the mechanical action of the toothbrush, and not by the toothpaste. So, fluoride is not necessary. Fluoride should not be a freely available drug.

Where to get fluoride-free toothpaste? Health, natural, or organic stores usually have a range of fluoride-free toothpastes. Many herbal toothpastes do not contain fluoride or sodium-lauryl-sulfate. The ingredients found in natural toothpastes vary, but often include baking soda, aloe, eucalyptus oil, myrrh, plant extract (strawberry extract), and essential oils.

It is also easy to find a webstore and order online. A search engine query should guide in the right direction to order the toothpaste online. One of the sites that came up with a wide range of toothpastes: http://www.nextag.com/fluoride-free-toothpaste/stores-html#!

Or, one can venture into make toothpaste from scratch. Salt and sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) are among materials that can be substituted for commercial toothpaste. Natural News has a post on how to make your own toothpaste.

To make your own toothpaste, just use a fifty/fifty ratio of coconut oil to baking soda. If you like, add a few drops of an essential oil, like peppermint or spearmint, for flavor. After mixing your toothpaste, keep it in a glass container with a lid. Then, just spoon some out for use or just dip your dry toothbrush into it. The mixture doesn’t need to be refrigerated and because coconut oil is antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal, it’ll help keep your toothbrush sanitary too.
