Brazilian Carnival is over, and it suddenly dawned on me that we are already in March. Hasn’t 2014 just started yesterday? Gosh! It’s going too fast, don’t you think?
With the clock ticking, my live Brazilian detox workshop also will kick off in 5 days. I am super excited! And even though this one is in Brazil and in Portuguese, I have been tweaking and loving the original English version of the course, which will come up soon and will be available for anyone who wishes to join me in detoxing and decluttering and leaving the past behind to achieve health and freedom now! Stay tuned 😉
Moving forward… By now, my bad broken tooth already looks much better. But the return journey from toothache hell wasn’t easy. Today, taking up on the subject of teeth and oral health, I am inspired to share with you a natural homemade toothpaste recipe you can do yourself using only three ingredients.
I haven’t been using a regular toothpaste for a while now. Turns out, the ones you find on the supermarket shelves are so high in toxic and unnecessary chemicals that may be even compromising the health of your teeth.
But don’t worry, I got ya! Just follow me to the kitchen: today we will prepare a super easy recipe that will keep your teeth clean, healthy and natural. Barabim!
Maybe you have heard before about the bad effects from fluoride and glycerine on your oral health. This natural homemade toothpaste is fluoride-free, glycerine-free, chemical-free and also free of any toxic or synthetic materials. IT is made from things you can eat, so there is no danger on using this recipe on your mouth, gums and teeth.
Easy, Natural and Homemade ToothPaste Recipe
Ingredients and Utensils
The three ingredients I use for this are: baking soda, coconut oil and your favourite essential oils, such as tea tree and pepper mint (you can choose the ones you like). I’ll also need spoons, a small spatula and small container. As I have a small mixing container, my recipe today will be in a small size, but you can always double the values in order to get a large quantity of toothpaste according to your needs.
How to Make your Natural Homemade Toothpaste
1. Add two teaspoons of coconut oil (melted is better) to your container.
2. Add the same quantity of baking soda to the container.
3. Give it a mix.
4. Now add 8 drops of the essential oils of your choice. I’m adding 4 drops of pepper mint and 4 drops of tea tree essential oils.
5. Mix it very well again.
6. And our natural toothpaste is now ready to use!
I usually use my finger to spread the toothpaste on my toothbrush, but if you are the only one using your natural toothpaste, you can dip your toothbrush directly in the container if you prefer it that way.
Now your ready to show off your chemical-free naturally beautiful smile!
