If you are seeking to ditch high-priced natural toothpaste while cleaning and brightening your smile at the same time, then look no more for this natural toothpaste recipe.
To make your own toothpaste, you need just three things: coconut oil, baking soda and a pinch of salt. That’s it. Baking soda and salt act as a cleaner, deodorizer, brightener and scrubbing agent. The coconut oil is an anti-fungal, anti-bacterial agent that will keep your teeth feeling smooth and clean.
All parts of our health, from our heart, to our emotions to our mental state are connected to the health of our gums and teeth. Keeping our mouth clean makes sure that we are protecting our hearts, bones, muscles, emotions and our future.
Here is the simple recipe that you will need to make your own toothpaste with coconut oil and baking soda. Note that this recipe is for a one time brush, and should be scaled upwards if needing to make quantities for later use.
Make Your Own Toothpaste:
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. virgin organic coconut oil
Pinch of Himalayan Salt
Mix all ingredients in a small bowl until it forms a smooth paste. Place on toothbrush and brush normally.
