How To Make Your Own Toothpaste


We live in a really toxic world. From the air we breathe to the food-like products we eat to beauty & cosmetic products, toxins are all around us. We can't avoid all toxins, but we can avoid a large percentage of them. Toxins cause all sorts of health problems and disease. By reading the label on everything you purchase you will quickly realize how toxic the majority of the ingredients are. Prevent disease and chronic health problems by being proactive with what you put in your body. From toothpaste to Rx & OTC drugs to food and drink, make your health a priority so you can live well and happy!

If you read this article you will know that commercial toothpaste is very toxic. And making your own is very easy, very simple and toxic free!   

Toothpaste Ingredients:

½ cup baking soda

5 drops tea tree oil (antiseptic, anti-fungal, infection-reducing, antibiotic)

2 tablespoons EVCO (Extra Virgin Coconut Oil) (antibacterial, anti-fungal, antiviral)

1 teaspoon Celtic Sea Salt (not table salt) (Celtic Sea Salt contains 82 trace essential minerals for human wellness and longevity)

1-2 tablespoons water

For peppermint toothpaste add 3 drops of organic peppermint extract (fights cavities, fresh breath, reduces stress, whitens teeth)

For cinnamon toothpaste add ½ teaspoon organic ceylon cinnamon (antibacterial, anti-fungal, supports immune system)

Method: Mix all together in a small glass bowl to form a paste. Adjust water and baking soda amounts as needed. (I personally add both peppermint and cinnamon as the health benefits from both are fantastic.)

To use: Simply scoop a little of the paste on your finger and onto toothbrush. Or dip your toothbrush in the little glass dish. After you brush your teeth, simply rinse with water. (No toxic mouthwash!) And if you oil pull in the morning that is one of the best things you can do for oral health!
