Coconut Oil Toothpaste
The news today is that Coconut Oil is excellent for dental health as it fights harmful bacteria including streptococcus and also fungal infections such as Thrush. Using Coconut Oil to clean your teeth also allows you to avoid all the harsh chemicals and fluoride found in most toothpastes. And if you, or especially young children, swallow the coconut oil whilst brushing your teeth there isn’t the danger of fluoride poisoning and you get additional health benefits as coconut oil is actually an excellent nutritious drink!
I have decided to give this a go so I have just purchased some pure coconut oil and I’m going to mix it with a little Bicarbonate of Soda on a saucer every morning to give a consistency that’s easy to scoop onto my toothbrush. Bicarb of Soda has its own additional teeth cleaning benefits as it is an alkali so helps neutralise acidic erosion on the teeth and also acts as a gentle abrasive and whitener to leave the teeth feeling quite literally squeaky clean!
I hope you will all try this natural teeth cleaner yourselves. Please let us know how you get on.
