Keeping the teeth in tip-top shape is of utmost importance for the overall health. However, despite the fact that we are aware of the importance of oral health, we still tend to use commercial products which are loaded with detrimental chemicals. Using homemade toothpaste is an ideal way to avoid these chemicals, whiten your teeth, and heal cavities and gum disease.
NATURAL TOOTHPASTE RECIPE
What makes this toothpaste so beneficial is the key ingredient being used in its preparation. We are talking about neem, a tree which grows in tropical regions and has been long used as substitute for toothbrush. Chewing on its twigs helps treat cavities and gum disease, promoting goo oral health.
What`s more, this toothpaste is fluoride-free and loaded with antibacterial ingredients like coconut oil, xylitol, and baking soda.
You will need:
- 3 tablespoons baking soda
- 1 tablespoon neem powder
- 3 tablespoons extra virgin coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon xylitol (for taste)
- 15 drops of mint essential oil/aroma
You should mix all ingredients in a suitable container, in order to prepare a paste. As coconut oil may harden depending on the outside temperature, store the paste in a glass jar.
You should use this natural toothpaste like you use regular toothpaste types, at least three times a day. This will whiten your teeth, treat gum disease, and heal cavities.
