Homemade Toothpaste Recipes with Coconut Oil

I

 

As medical science advances and more studies get under way, scientists are finding that those products that have been commonly accepted as good for you are actually causing some of the health problems seen today.  An example of this would be fluoride.  It is now coming to light that this chemical, added to water and toothpaste to help keep our pearly whites healthy, is a highly toxic substance and actually causes a range of health problems, including weakened bones & muscles, nervouse system problems and a disruption in hormones .  This should be concerning, as most of our children are exposed to this chemical since birth.  

There are a couple of options you can do to eliminate this chemical from being a part of your families daily use.  One is to purchase bottled water for drinking and cooking.  Another is to make your own natural toothpaste, and I would like to share a couple recipes that I like to make for myself and my family.  The main ingredient in our natural toothpaste?  Coconut oil.  This oil is quickly becoming known as a miracle oil, since it is so good for your health, internally as well as externally.  Studies have shown that it has antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antifungal properties that kill the bacteria that cause tooth decay.  Below, I've listed some homemade toothpaste recipes with coconut oil that you can easily do at home.  These are all natural and will not have the side effects like those from regular toothpaste (listed above).  Flavoring is optional, and you can use any one of your choice.  Citrus, mint, and myrrh are all good options.

Ready to make your own?  Here's what you need.

Recipe #2

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 6 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon hydrogen peroxide
  • 10 drops of peppermint extract, essential oil, or other flavoring of your choice (orange, clove, myrrh)

Directions:

  • Slightly soften coconut oil.  Add other ingredients and mix well.  Place in an opaque container (this protects the hydrogen peroxide) and allow to cool completely.

To use:

  • Use a spoon to scoop a small amount out and place on your tooth brush.  Brush as usual.

Notes:   If you melt the coconut oil completely, you will need to stir the mixture frequently as it cools to keep the powder ingredients incorporated with the oils.  You can adjust these recipes for the proper texture (more baking soda if too runny, more coconut oil if too dry)
