I don’t like to use regular toothpaste because of the fluoride (an industrial toxic waste product, which is a poison, and can cause neurological and endocrine dysfunction) and other unnecessary, cancer-causing ingredients.
I started using organic toothpaste, but after learning the many benefits of coconut oil toothpaste, I decided to give it a try! Some of these benefits include: attacking streptococcus bacteria (a major cause of tooth decay), no harmful chemicals, anti-cavity properties, and cost efficiency!
And here’s something slightly personal- fluoride can cause dental fluorosis, which I had a mild case of since I was a kid. I did not realize that once I started using my homemade toothpaste my teeth would become naturally whiter and I no longer have those disgusting lines on my teeth as bad as I once had!
I’ve officially gone coco loco.
So now I’ll tell you how I make my toothpaste (the simplest way possible).
That’s all there is to it folks! Pretty simple, and very beneficial!
If you would like to read more about how wonderful coconut oil really is, read this! My friend posted it the other day so I thought I should share.
