It's crazy to think that something so small and mundane can have a huge impact on your health. I've read so many articles about the dangers of fluoride, it became a mini-mission to find a good alternative.
Here is the downright easiest method of making your own toothpaste.
Mix equal parts. (I melted an entire jar of organic coconut oil to help the mixing process. Just place jar in pot of water on stove, and stir inside of the jar until almost completely melted. Pour out into bowl and add baking soda. Mix and store in your favorite container. No refrigeration required.)
BAM! Your. mind. is. blown.
Crazy right? Now I don't mind the "baking soda" flavor at all, but some are a little put-off by this. You can easily add a tiny bit of stevia or xylitol and a bit of essential oil for flavor. This is completely up to your personal preference.
The benefits of this homemade version of toothpaste is as follows:
Coconut oil is a triple threat- antimicrobial, antibacterial, and antifungal! It has been proven to kill the bacteria that cause tooth decay. Also, baking soda is a super mild abrasive that will help get those pearlys even whiter! Best part? NO CHEMICALS! None. Nada. Zip. This is something you can totally be at ease about!
**Also, you can use a diluted bit of hydrogen peroxide as a mouthwash!
Are you gonna try the toothpaste?
