Go for The Natural Toothpaste and get rid of those Chemicals

 

So many of our day to day products can be made really easily at home.  Body care products are some of my favorite to make. I have been using this toothpaste now for a few months and I LOVE it.  My teeth feel a lot smoother and my mouth is always left feeling really clean. 

 

Most commercial toothpaste brands contain fluoride. Although fluoride can potentially help to harden our teeth it is really not good for the brain, the thyroid and can cause lots of other problems .... check this link out here. Commercial toothpaste also contains sodium lauryl sulphate and other sulfite/sulfates which have their own issues with being carcinogenic.

 

Research has shown that coconut oil strongly inhibits the growth of most strains of Streptococcus bacteria, including Streptococcus mutans, an acid-producing bacterium that is a major cause of tooth decay. It is thought that the breaking down of the fatty coconut oil by the enzymes turns it into acids, which are toxic to certain bacteria!

Getting the Toothpaste Recipe Right

 

With a attempts gone bad ... the ratios in this recipe seem to work well. If you have children or prefer a sweeter toothpaste, you can add powdered xylitol (the granulated is quite grainy) or 2 packets of stevia to the recipe.  It is best to get fresh baking soda as baking soda actually does expire.  I prefer to use an organic, virgin coconut oil as well.  Have fun putting this all together!

 

How do you Make this Natural Toothpaste?

It is really SO easy. 

  • About ½ cup coconut oil (melted or softened)
  • 2-3 tbsp baking soda
  • 2 little packets of stevia powder (optional if you have little ones)
  • 15-20 drops of peppermint or cinnamon essential oil. The last batch I used Doterra's On Guard and it is great
  • 5-10 drops myrrh extract (optional)

Now ...

  1. Melt or slightly soften coconut oil. I put the jar in some warm water for a few minutes.
  2. Mix in other ingredients and stir well.
  3. Place the paste  into a small glass jar
  4. As it cools shake the jar to keep the baking soda from settling. This might need to be done every 10 minutes or so
  5. Enjoy!

 P.S. I find this totally safe to use with the Natural Path HCG Diet Protocol
