I personally have tried a lot of different natural toothpaste brands and teeth cleaning products over the years. I think I can share with some authority which ones we really love and why. In addition to giving you sound recommendations on products to check out, I will also share a few great recipes if you want to make your own natural toothpaste or tooth powders.
Natural Toothpaste We Use and Teeth Cleaning Recipes We Love
Redmond Earthpaste – I got a hold of some Redmond Earthpaste through a promotion a few years back. I wasn’t sure what to think of it at first but my daughter thought it was cool since it looked like mud. The brownish color is obviously the clay and I was worried that Tiny was not going to like the taste. I was wrong. She actually loved all the flavors with the exception of cinnamon (too spicy for her but my favorite). There are no foaming agents in this paste so for those of you whose children like to see suds, that won’t happen. But the end result is squeaky clean teeth and gums that just feel amazing! Plus what child doesn’t love the idea of brushing with mud?
Their 4 pack is a screaming deal and a great way to figure out your favorite flavor.
Healthy Mouth Blend from OraWellness – this is a liquid blend that is made with 100% organic and wild crafted ingredients! This formula is a balance of both warming and cooling antibacterial oils for safe long term use for children and adults. The Healthy Mouth Blend also makes it more difficult for the bacteria to deposit plaque on the tooth. A little goes a long way and while it doesn’t seem like it is possible for a few drops to actually clean your teeth, this blend really does! I like to use it two times per week and Tiny uses it whenever she is in the mood.
Jack N’ Jill Fluoride-Free Natural Toothpaste with Certified Organic Banana – this is a fluoride free, sugar free, color free, SLS free, preservative free toothpaste rich in Xylitol and organic Calendula. This toothpaste has lots of natural healing power and powerful anti-inflammatory properties which are good for young teeth and gums. I initially purchased this because I was curious about the banana flavor. It was pretty darn tasty and Tiny adores it. However, it fell out of favor with her although occasionally she still asks to use it. I thought it left her teeth really shiny and they just looked clean. This is a great choice for children who need a flavor that they are more familiar with. It isn’t earthy like the other toothpastes mentioned here.

Natural toothpastes are, indeed, the best way to go. However, some of these may not be able to provide the complete and total care that your teeth needs. My advice would be to alternate between natural and special toothpastes to ensure that your pearly whites are adequately cared for you and your teeth get all the nutrients and minerals that they need at all times.
Your article is nice and helpful. Yes, we should use the natural toothpaste for dental care. It is very beneficial for us. It prevents gum disease gingivitis. Nowadays, many products available, but some contains harmful chemical so we should always prefer natural toothpaste.
My 2 year old uses Jack n Jill toothpaste and LOVES it. She’s always so excited to brush her teeth. The only thing is, she has some yellowish plaque on her top teeth that the toothpaste doesn’t get off, which worries me that the toothpaste isn’t enough. Any suggestions on a natural product that cleans that up better?
You could add a wee bit of sea salt to the toothbrush. I would do this maybe 2 times per week. That way, your daughter can still use the toothpaste she loves. I would also add a little bit of coconut oil to one brushing per day. That will help a ton!
