Coconut Oil Toothpaste

Coconut Oil ToothpasteYou may have heard of oil pulling, which is the process of swishing oil around in your mouth for up to 20 minutes at a time. Well, you can also use coconut oil for making your own toothpaste.

It is also known for its bacteria killing properties.

Since I've been using this toothpaste (and oil pulling), I have noticed a big difference in the health of my teeth and gums. In fact, at my last dental and hygenist check-up, I was told that I had the cleanest mouth they had seen and to keep doing whatever I was doing!

 

Ingredients

  • 4 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp baking soda
  • 10-20 drops essential oil (I like peppermint or clove)

Method

  1. Mix everything really well in a small bowl.
  2. Transfer to a jar and seal.

Use this toothpaste just the same as regular toothpaste.

 

Note: I have also heard that adding a tsp or so of turmeric powder will help whiten teeth! I know, that sounds a bit strange, considering that turmeric is well known for staining things an orangey-yellow colour, but I'm giving it a go and will let you know what happens! :)
