Make Your Own Coconut Oil Toothpaste

An easy solution to a healthy and safe toothpaste is to make your own with coconut oil. The natural anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties in coconut oil benefit oral health and hygiene, and help keep teeth clean and white.

We have been learning so much about the health benefits of coconut oil lately, and these benefits are not just restricted to the kitchen. Coconut oil can make a wonderful, healthy and clean toothpaste.

I have come across a few ingredients in toothpaste that claim to help with oral and dental health, when in fact they can cause further issues - it is surprising.

1. Glycerin: this gives toothpaste it's creamy texture. It is also meant to assist teeth with 'protection', but at the same time it stops the re-enamalization (so cavities are unable to self heal).

2. Sodium fluoride:  this is a by product of aluminium manufacturing. It can also be found in rat poisoning and industrial pesticides. Scary!

An easy solution to a healthy and safe toothpaste is to make your own with coconut oil. The natural anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties in coconut oil benefit oral health and hygiene, and help keep teeth clean and white. You can even adjust the recipe to suit your own taste, make it sweet, minty or fruity.
