Your smile instantly brightens your face and day. So why brush your teeth with cancer-causing ingredients such as triclosan, parabens, SLS? Big brands such as Colgate-Palmolive have marketed their way into our brains such that using anything else -other than their products- would psychologically be akin to insulting the ancestors. There are several brands who have also come up with very great natural alternatives to synthetic crap that we are used to (If in Kenya try check Fava Herb). However, some of their prices can be steep with some starting at USD 7 going up. So we have shared an easy DIY toothpaste that works miracles. Coconut oil has many benefits for skin and health, but it is a great dental care ingredient and an oral debriding agent as well. I did oil pulling about a month ago using coconut oil and the results were wonderful. Baking soda has a pH of 8.3, therefore it has uplifting benefits on the dental environment. Peppermint Essential Oil is extremely effective at killing anaerobic bacteria. This type of bacteria that thrive in a low oxygen environment such as the mouth. Spearmint Essential Oil is a very strong antiseptic. It eliminates germs and speeds up the healing of wounds. Spearmint Essential Oil is also soothing to soft tissues like gum tissue.
***Brush your teeth gently with this toothpaste as baking soda can be abrasive on the teeth.
