Reviews For Neem Toothpaste, Tea Tree Oil & Wintergreen

Based on 65 Reviews


I used to use the Jason natural toothpaste, and did not like it. This toothpaste has a good foam, but not too much, and the flavor is not overpowering, but will give you nice breath! I love it! Will definitely become my regular toothpaste from now on.

- Maggie

Refreshing, not-sweet option

I tried this when deciding I was getting tried of the sweet and sugary taste of my current toothpaste. I think I found my new regular toothpaste! Nice mintiness, without the sweetness. I use this in conjunction with a few drops of essential oil blend for gum health and alternate it with a charcoal tooth powder and a brushing rinse (I like to mix it up). Try it!

- Catherine Bednarczyk


I really love this toothpaste! I am so glad that I purchased it! I definitely will be buying more of this!

- Brianna

Good, but very pasty

Does the job, very pasty though. Wish the mint was a tad stronger and sweeter. We will continue to use.

- Andrea Sung

Healthful and effective toothpaste

I love this paste. It's not sweet - it's just a plain and natural taste in your mouth, and a perfectly pleasant feel. But here's the kicker: My dentist, on my last exam, asked me, "What toothpaste are you using, and how long ago did you switch to this?" Enough said!

- margretm

Best Toothpaste

Best fluoride-free toothpaste we have used. Mouth is minty clean and very fresh! Who doesn't love clean, minty, fresh feel in their mouth? Wow!

- Kelley

Foamy and fun!


The taste is nice and refreshing, not crazy sweet. And it really foams up, to where I only use an amount about the size of an apple seed. It does a nice job cleaning and polishing, and my teeth even seem a bit whiter. I do not let me kids use it, but only because I don't want to share.

Great price on Thrive, and love that it is a stand-up tube with a flip cap, instead of a tiny twist on cap. To sum it up, this is my favorite of all toothpastes I've ever tried!

- KBmama6

Awesome and great results

Love this toothpaste. Nice flavor and great results. My husband, who usually has to use a "sensitive" type toothpaste also switched. This toothpaste worked better on his sensitivity and gums. Very pleased.

- Linda

Neem toothpaste

I had to get used to the taste. Once, I did; it has become good to the mouth

- Mac

Totally Great Toothpaste!!!!

This toothpaste is floride and sodium laurel sulfate free!!! I've been purchasing it now for over 2 years from another company but, saw that Thrive has it for just a few pennys more. NO big deal on that!! I ordered 4 tubes to stock up!!

Thank you, so much, Thrive Market, for having this item!!!

- Cheryl

Great product

Love this toothpaste.. Pleasant taste. Not chalky.
I will continue to stock up on this product


Pleasant surprise

This was my first time trying the Desert Essence toothpaste. It was a very pleasant surprise. It has a nice mild cooling flavor, foams up nicely, and your gums and teeth feel great. I would recommend and buy again.

- Linda

Safe for the whole family

This toothpaste is safe, yet effective and my family enjoys the slight mint flavor as well.

- Ashley

Great Natural Toothpaste

Love that this toothpaste has neem in it and no fluoride. The flavor is good, not too strong of a minty taste. It also makes a good amount of foam.

- Sarah

Best Toothpaste EVER

This is by far my most favorite toothpaste I have ever used! Not only is it cruelty free/vegan but it leaves your mouth feeling minty fresh! Thank you Desert Essence! I would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone that like minty fresh breath & supporting a wonderful cruelty free vegan brand!

- Katie

Excellent Toothpaste

My husband was hesitant at first because "there isn't much of a taste", but now begs for me to order more if we run out because conventional toothpastes "make his teeth hurt" and also just taste sweet for some reason.

- Christina

Great minty taste!

So glad I ordered this toothpaste. Has a pleasant taste and refresh's my mouth. I will purchase again.



Haven't used it yet.

- Nancy


Great taste and texture. Will be buying again

- Sarah

Delicious mint

Love the taste. Sometimes I run out of homemade or I just don't want to travel with mine. This is a great non-toxic alternative for me. Minty and fresh, it's my favorite.

- Cheri


This is a clean tasting and effective toothpaste. It's one of the few I've tried that don't make me gag when I brush my teeth. I also have sensitive teeth, but haven't noticed this causing it to be worse.

- Ginny

Really clean feeling...

Alternative toothpaste...should be the mainstream! Great flavor and feel fresh and clean. Love that it has all natural ingredients. (Was a little creeped out at first about the neem oil since I thought that was only for diy garden pest spray) not to worry...

- Shelly

Great Product!

The flavor is pretty good, but the results are fantastic! We used to be a Colgate Total plus Whitening family, (for several years). We visit our dentist every 6 months for check ups and we brush regularly. During my semi-annual visit today, I noticed my dental hygienist didn't perform much scraping. I mentioned to her that we switched toothpastes and I wanted her honest opinion on whether the results were worse, the same, or better than my previous brand. She said she noticed less tartar/plaque and my gums looked quite healthy. She did add that most of the scraping she had to do was for my coffee/tea stains, (slight, but to be noted). She added that if I were to add in 1 or 2 baking soda brushings/week that would help aid in that surface stain removal. It makes my heart happy to get better results with a natural product. =]

- Nichole


Very refreshing, and cleans so well. I love this toothpaste

- Jennifer

Teeth are Happy!

I was a little hesitant with Neem Oil in my toothpaste but am very pleasantly surprised! This cleans my teeth very well and leaves my mouth feeling fresh. I will be ordering again

- Patricia

Best toothpaste!

I've tried a few other brands on thrive and most of them had no cleaning/foaming feeling whatsoever, which I know I'm used to from other toothpastes, but this stuff really cleans, and it has a great fresh taste. My husband even approves after using Aquafresh for years and years!

- Jennifer

Pleasant Surprise

This toothpaste has a great smell and taste. I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't stronger in flavor based on the smell. I like the way it makes my mouth feel clean without leaving me peeling "skin" off from inside my mouth after brushing. My whole family is using this product now.

- Melissa Hughes

love it

Love the texture and my mouth feels so fresh and clean after using it.

- Aimee


I've grown to appreciate this clean, healthy toothpaste so much that regular toothpaste now tastes repulsive in my opinion. And this brand has NO WARNING label.

- Denise

Pleasantly surprised

I had my doubts about "healthy" toothpaste. I imagined the taste would be unappealing, and I doubted my teeth would feel as clean as with my usual brand. I was, however, pleasantly surprised. The taste was just a bit different, but I quickly got used to it and now really like it, and my teeth feel clean as a whistle.


Converted Boyfriend!

I had been using Toms for years and have been trying to get my boyfriend to go to a healthier route but he really disliked the taste of Toms! This stuff he can tolerate, and actually seems to like! With ingredients I like and want in my house!

- Helena

Neem Tooth paste

Great item, highly recommend

- Patrick

Best toothpaste

I LOVE this toothpaste. It leaves your mouth feeling fresh without that overly minty feeling of the big brand toothpastes.

- Caitlin


I bought this toothpaste twice along with the other desert essence oral care. I've seen a noticeable difference and feel fresh.

- Melody

Definitely Interesting

I've only used this a couple of times now, but the taste is definitely interesting. Kind of like a minty tongue depressor almost? It's nice and light but also refreshing, not overpowering like many other toothpastes.

- Stephanie


I love this toothpaste! It leaves my teeth feeling clean all day

- S

Love it

As a dentist, I highly recommend this toothpaste!

- Carla

Great Product

Just love this stuff and now my husband won't use the national brands anymore either.

- Theresa Swartz

Favorite Toothpaste!

Used to use Tom's. LOVE this one SO much better! Awesomely fresh feeling mouth when done & squeaky clean teeth. ;-)

- Cynthia

Just like regular toothpaste

Actually refreshing :)

- Brittany

Love it!

Leaves my mouth feeling fresh and clean without all the harmful ingredients found in other products.

- Jennifer

Happy I found it!

this toothpaste is wonderful and i love the soft taste

- Maleka M.

the best!!!

I've tried tons of natural toothpastes even some of my own concoctions and this is by far the best for function, taste, texture and ingredients

- Nikky

No yucky added sweeteners

Great product makes my mouth feel so fresh and clean and natural !! No yucky after taste.

- Rebecca


Great stuff, the only tooth paste I will buy.

- Patrick

Best Natural Toothpaste!

I have tried several natural tooth pastes and this is my husband and I's favorite! It is tasty and leaves my mouth feeling so fresh. Also, a little goes a long way! So glad I found it.

- Carissa

Very good product

good and refreshing product

- chaitanya

A favorite

This is one of our favorite toothpastes. Mouth feels clean and fresh with NO flouride.

- Pamela

Great toothpaste!

Since using this toothpaste, my teeth have looked whiter and feel smoother. It's really refreshing, not too strong (not too bland) and fluffy and light (not thick and pasty like most toothpastes). The tube is unusually great - it doesn't get messy and hard to close as time goes on, and it squeezes out evenly and easily until it's empty. Your mouth will feel really clean, light, and fresh afterwards, and the taste doesn't linger.

- Ashley

Incredibly refreshing

Immediately after the first use I knew I would never go back to my regular toothpaste. This toothpaste is incredible!! It isn't too strong, it leaves your whole mouth feeling super smooth, clean and fresh and gets rid of any odors.

- Christina

Really great

This is a very refreshing toothpaste. Leaves your mouth fresh and feeling like you just had a cleaning! Very pleased!

- rachael

My favorite!

I've been using this for a few years now. It keeps my gums healthy & is very non-irritating. Love it!

- Torie

Not great for sensitive gums

I have been using a sensitive toothpaste for years and after using this toothpaste for one week my gum pain returned.

- Erika

Great product!

I really like this toothpaste. Based on some of the other reviews, I was expecting this to be very very strong, but I don't think it is overbearing at all. It gives me the perfect glance of freshness without being overpowering. Everyone is different, so for some it may be too strong, but for me it isn't strong at all. I greatly enjoy it! Especially at the discounted price. :)

- Kelly

Love it!

This is the best toothpaste I've ever used. I love the flavor, not too strong, and how clean my teeth are after using it.

- Vanesa

This stuff works

I wanted to switch to a more natural toothpaste and chose this one. This stuff tastes great and cleans well. It is not overpowering. I used to use Aquafresh, and I think it's much stronger than this one.

- Julie

Super cleaning

This stuff cleans great, but I feel weird about using it. I used tea tree to treat pimples when I was a kid, so using it in my mouth seems odd. The same with Neem oil, which I use to keep hides smooth in my taxidermy business.

This paste does work, it is just amazing how many different things certain oils can actually be used for.

- Greg Garden

Cleans great

Neem oil has been used for centuries for healthy gums and clean teeth. Tea tree oil is very healing and leaves your teeth feeling fresh.
I love using this toothpaste and the wintergreen melds well with the tea tree and neem.

- Leigh Mens

Too Strong

This toothpaste gets my teeth clean and leaves my mouth fresh...VERY fresh. In fact, it lasts for hours. Problem with that is it also means it tastes strong. The wintergreen is overpowering. I do like, however, that my gums are looking pinker and my breath is smelling fresher.

- Shane

Just What I've Been Looking For!

I have been looking for a great toothpaste with tea tree oil and neem that didn't taste like, well, tea tree oil and neem. It is no secret that neither of those things taste very good, so that this has a strong wintergreen flavor is great. It is a bit strong, but I prefer a strong wintergreen over a strong tea tree flavor.
It gets my teeth super clean and leaves my breath smelling great. I have seen a huge improvement in my gums heath and how my breath smells. I used to have gum pockets and bleeding, and they are almost all gone now! I couldn't be happier!

- Sera

Great Toothpaste

I wanted to switch to a more natural toothpaste after hearing about the problems of too much flouride, and this was a good alternative. I love the minty taste to it, but it's not too overpowering. It'll freshen my breath, but it's not like I'm "feeling" the mint a couple hours later. The toothpaste doesn't feel gritty or uncomfortable, and it doesn't have any "overly" sweet taste either. It has a nice, palatable taste that makes it simple to brush my teeth. It leaves my mouth and teeth feeling pretty clean too. Win-win all around!

- Ken

Strong and lasting

If you can't take the heat, don't buy this toothpaste.

It's natural, but it's also got a very potent wintergreen flavor that packs a bit of a punch. I like it because it's natural and I know my teeth aren't being exposed to toxins. The flavor also lingers so you don't really need mouthwash once you're done brushing.

- Drew

Cleans better than my old paste

I wanted to switch to a natural toothpaste that didn't have a lot of chemicals that were going into my body with every brushing.

This toothpaste has everything I wanted, and it's not abrasive. It also has a strong wintergreen flavor that makes my whole mouth come alive and feel fresh. And at just under four bucks, it's pretty much what I would be paying for something like Colgate, which is full of chemicals.

- Daisy Wong


I have tried every kind of toothpaste out there. This is by far the best! It has a moderate wintergreen flavor so beware if you don't like strong tasting toothpaste. As for children using it, my 12 year old daughter loves it too but my 11 year old son does not. I still have a full tube & just ordered more.

- MSinPA

I strongly recommend it to people who have dental issues

I have been using this toothpaste for more than 2.5 years now with great results and I don’t want to switch to any other brand. The best thing about this toothpaste is that it does not have any artificial flavor or sweetness that many other toothpastes have which makes me think that they are themselves causing tooth decay with these sweet and artificial ingredients. When it comes to herbs, has great medicinal properties and I would strongly recommend it to people who have dental issues to try this brand.
