    Which natural toothpaste would you recommend that is SLS free?

    I think I might have an allergy or reaction to sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLS). I was hesitant about  switching to a natural toothpaste but now that I think I might have a allergy I'm more motivated to switch. Just not sure which one to try or if I'm better off making my own.

    I often make my own, but I also really love Desert Essence Natural Tea Tree Oil and Neem toothpaste. It is a little pricey, but you can order it online and it really makes my mouth feel clean for a long time.  It is SLS free and is also flouride and gluten free. It's my favorite of natural brands I've tried.  Tom's toothpastes are less expensive, but they make my mouth feel dried out or something I don't care for them.

      Thanks! Gluten free is a major plus for me. I'm torn about making my own since the store bought stuff is pricey. I don't trust my ability to make it.

      It's really not hard, I have a hub on it. Coconut oil, sea salt or baking soda and a few drops of essential oil is all you really need and it works very well. you just have to prepare in small batches and remake often.

      Thanks Christin. Just to update you I was able to purchase a natural tooth powder. Took some time getting use to it. I think I'm going to try your recipe though. I have seen improvement since switching. Do you avoid SLS in other aspects of your life?

      awesome Sharicey, glad you are enjoying it now. Definitely experiment. I do avoid SLS in everything - among many other chemicals!
