Coconut Oil May Be Better Than Most
What if you could take care of your teeth naturally yet effectively without spending a lot on organic toothpaste?
Chances are when you were a child, your dear mom repeated over and over again how important brushing your teeth is. Since then, you have heard it from dentists and commercials and have probably figured it out yourself that clean teeth and fresh breath feel so nice and… well, clean.
But the problem is that most toothpaste on the market is made with chemicals and fluoride that is damaging for your health. Yes, there are plenty of natural and organic alternatives out there, but most of them are expensive.
The good news is that you can make your own toothpaste with coconut oil and save money by doing so.
Why Coconut Oil In Toothpaste?
Coconut oil is one of the most powerful antibacterial substances out there. According to a 2012 study, coconut oil is able to effectively attack the bacteria that causes tooth decay. These findings are backed by other studies prior and since.
This information alone is a clear indication that coconut oil undoubtedly should be a part of any natural toothpaste product.
Need more convincing? Coconut oil is also effective in killing fungus, including Candida that plays a major role in the manifestation of cancer.
Symptoms of Candida overgrowth include:
Bad breath (halitosis)
Severe seasonal allergies
Sensitivity to alcohol and products that come in contact with the skin, such as deodorant and perfume
Just by brushing your teeth with homemade coconut oil toothpaste, you can fight Candida. By eliminating processed foods and sugar from your diet, eating a whole foods diet with plenty of veggies and eating anti-fungal foods, like coconut oil, turmeric, ginger and cinnamon, you can ensure that Candida does not have a chance.
Back to toothpaste though, you can easily make your own coconut oil toothpaste with just a few simple ingredients.
Homemade Coconut Oil Toothpaste
1/2 cup coconut oil
2-3 tbsp of baking soda (or more if you desire a thicker paste)
15-20 drops of peppermint essential oil (and other essential oils of your choice if you desire)
Liquid stevia drops to sweeten (optional)
Optional: content of 2-4 Biotic Balance Probiotics – this will help fight bad bacteria even more effectively
Add all ingredients into a small glass container with a lid.
Stir all of the ingredients together.
Seal your container when not in use.
To use: scoop out a small amount of the toothpaste onto your brush. Thoroughly brush your teeth and then rinse out your mouth with water.
Using this homemade, natural coconut oil toothpaste, your mouth and teeth will feel more fresh, more clean and healthier than ever. This practice will help you fight decay, bad breath and Candida effectively.
Remember: A healthy diet and lifestyle are also key for teeth and mouth health. Reduce or eliminate processed sugar, processed foods, artificial ingredients, artificial coloring, coffee, alcohol and tobacco. Eat a whole foods, mostly plant based diet. Chew your food properly. Drink plenty of water.
