Our teeth may be on the list of the most important parts of our body. We only get one pair of them and they are forever. Eating junk food, sweets and all kinds of stuff can make our teeth go bad. It is very important to keep our teeth healthy so that we don’t suffer from tooth decay or gum diseases.
We can find millions of toothpastes in the markets and they all claim to be the same. The main thing they claim is that they can whiten our teeth in just 30 days, prevent gum diseases and many more. But, their main ingredients are mostly toxic and can do harm to our teeth.
Fluoride is the most used toxic ingredient in toothpastes. According to a study made on fluoride and brain function by Harvard University, fluoride can actually have side effects on brain and lower the IQ level. So all in one, use the toothpaste in exchange for some brain cells.
Because of this, we can find a lot of natural ingredients that can help us create a home remedy for toothpaste. No more toxins in our toothpaste, this homemade toothpaste is all natural and really effective. It will help you whiten your teeth and lower the risk for gum diseases. All you need is baking soda, coconut oil, and some neem powder. Baking soda will help you clean your teeth, and it’s more affordable and even more effective than any of the toothpastes.
On the other hand, the coconut oil is really effective in dental health. It has been used to clean teeth for centuries. This ingredient works by detoxifying the oral cavity in a similar way to dish liquid cleaning the dishes. In other words, it will literally suck the dirt and all the toxins from your mouth.
Indian Lilac is the other name of neem powder. It is used in Indian traditional medicine and it has more than 140 active compounds within. This powder can produce a healthier immune system, treat ulcers, and even prevent tooth decay. Interesting thing is that chewing on a stick from this tree can actually help prevent tooth decay. Neem powder is amazing ingredient and it should be definitely in your homemade toothpaste.
Here are the ingredients you will need to create this homemade natural toothpaste:
- 3 tablespoons of baking soda
- 1 tablespoon neem powder
- 3 tablespoons extra virgin coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon xylitol (for paste)
- 15 drops of mint essential oil/aroma
Take a container and mix all the ingredients until you get a paste. You should store the prepared paste in a glass jar because coconut oil may harden depending on the outside temperature. You need to use this natural toothpaste in the same way as the ordinary toothpaste. Three times a day with this toothpaste and you will experience healthier gums, whitened teeth and healed cavities. Enjoy this toxin-free toothpaste and share it with your friends!
