HOMEMADE TOOTHPASTE and TOOTH POWDER

 It’s time to save your family money, save your health and save your teeth with some simple, easy and natural home recipes for toothpaste and tooth powder!

 It seems to me that the price of almost everything is going UP and it becomes harder to budget for healthier alternatives to the norm. It’s a hard thing to come to terms with when trying to live a healthy, clean and chemical free lifestyle. But there is hope! Most of the ingredients listed below can be used to make so many NATURAL household items for a fraction of the cost of store bought brands.

 PLUS, let’s just be real here, do any of us actually know what the ingredients in typical store bought toothpastes are in there for? Can you even pronounce most of them? And we have all been told since childhood that Fluoride is “good” for us, but in reality it’s been found to cause neurotoxicity, arthritis, nerve damage, while attacking the brain and thyroid gland and more. But most surprising is that fluoride causes

“severe dental fluorosis and crippling skeletal fluorosis”

Whoa, whoa, whoa! Wait a second…. Isn’t that WHY we were told to use fluoride daily in the first place, in order to protect our teeth and bones? And now the FDA is supposed to put a “warning on all fluoride toothpastes sold in the U.S. after millions of people throughout China and India now suffer serious crippling bone diseases from drinking water with elevated levels of fluoride.”

Fluoride is a hard thing to get away from when toothpaste is something we all use up to 1-3 times per day (hopefully) on top of the fluoride levels in our tap water, which the majority of people still drink and cook with daily.

 “NRC concluded that the allegedly “safe” upper limit of fluoride in water (4 mg/l) is toxic to human health. While the NRC did not determine the safe level, their conclusion means that the safe level is less than 4 times the level added to water (0.7-1.2 mg/l) in community fluoridation programs. This is far too slim a margin to protect vulnerable members of the population, including those who consume high amounts of water.”

 And that’s just one ingredient of several in typical toothpastes that can be hazardous to our health with repeated and frequent exposure. 2-3 times a day is quite frequent!

 Like I said before, there is hope! There may not be a way to avoid Fluoride 100% BUT you can take proactive measures to limit your exposure by making your own natural and healthy toothpaste and tooth powder. And by filtering or avoiding the use of tap water for drinking and cooking.

 After one week of using this mix my teeth felt cleaner, a month and they felt stronger and my gums no longer bled when I flossed, now after 2+ years my teeth, gums and mouth feel and look healthier. I honestly feel a difference in the way my teeth feel! They feel cleaner and look whiter and brighter. Not to mention the fact that the inside of my mouth feels better too. My mouth would burn after brushing and I use to get painful bumps inside my cheeks and under my tongue after using store bought toothpaste; similar to the bumps I use to get after eating processed foods with preservatives long ago. This could have been a reaction from the Sorbitol, Xylitol in natural brands or other preservatives and ingredients in them. Now that I make my own toothpaste this no longer occurs and my mouth is happy again!

 

Ok, Ok, I’ll stop yapping and get to the real reason you’re all here.

Making your own products is fun, so grab the kids and make it a fun and inexpensive family hobby to be proud about!

TOOTH PASTE

 I got pretty creative with this mix, it took a little getting use to BUT now I love it!

 These ingredients will help increase mineral absorption by teeth while reducing heavy metals that leech out from mercury filings and other dental work. It is also gently abrasive and naturally whitening while it combats bacteria and cleans.

toothpaste

Ingredients and Directions:

 Items Needed:

-1 small, wide mouth glass jar with lid

-Wooden Popsicle stick for mixing (use wooden stick or plastic spoon to mix and glass jar for storage. Metal will lessen the effectiveness of the clay as it reacts with the metal)

Add to jar:

 -3 parts Baking Soda (gently abrasive, whitening)

 -1 part Calcium Bentonite Clay (absorbs heavy metals, also known as Indian Healing Clay)

 -2 Tbsp. Organic Cinnamon powder (antimicrobial)

 - ½ -1 tsp. Sea Salt (antiseptic and increased minerals)

 

-MIX Dry Ingredients-

 -10-20 drops Liquid Trace Minerals

(increases mineral absorption, Trace minerals Research is a great brand)

 -10 +/- drops Peppermint Essential oil to taste (antimicrobial)

 -Slowly add Peroxide to desired consistency LAST. (antiseptic, antibacterial, antimicrobial, whitening)

 

-The solution will bubble, mix until paste is formed-

 -Optional: 5 drops Organic Stevia Liquid or small pinch of ground Organic Stevia plant to naturally sweeten the mix

 -Optional: 10-15 drops Myhrr Tincture OR 5-10 drops Clove Essential Oil

(added antimicrobial and antiseptic properties. These will change the taste so add them slowly and taste test)

 -Optional: 1 tsp. Coconut Oil

(powerful inhibitor of large variety of pathogenic organisms from viruses to bacteria to protozoa. Also great for Oil Pulling. Also helps to thicken the paste)

Side Notes:

 I keep this mix in the jar I mixed it in while using a Popsicle stick to dip in and then put the paste on my toothbrush.

Avoid dipping your toothbrush into the mix, this can spread bacteria to other family members and ruin the toothpaste.

Make sure to LABEL the jar or container you use, especially while traveling. It may be helpful to list the ingredients in case there is any question.
