We all know how important dental hygiene is. Whether it’s regular visits to the professionals or home care, it’s vital. But with flossing and brushing and mouthwash, sometimes it feels like your throwing good money after bad at big companies in order to upkeep your teeth.
And is it just us or is there somewhat of a chemically feel about a lot of oral hygiene products? Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to use a product to clean your teeth with that you could GUARANTEE was all natural? Well, now you can…
Experts agree – the best thing to clean your teeth with is coconut oil!
And here’s how you can make your very own coconut oil toothpaste:
1. Prepare and clean out a little jar that has a tight lid on it. Something like a baby food jar or small Mason jar will do the job.
2. Mix together one part coconut oil with one part baking soda.
3. Add into the mixture three to five drops of sweet orange, peppermint, or essential oils to flavor (make sure they’re food grade first…).
4. Allow your new oil-based, natural toothpaste to cool down and set.
5. Use it!
5. Use it!
And the results?
