With so many products containing ingredients that could turn harmful in the long run, it is better to find ways to make natural products that are just as effective. Toothpastes are of so many kinds, but unfortunately some of them do not have the best of ingredients even though they may fetch the expected results. If you are looking for teeth whitening and remineralizing toothpaste that will take care of your teeth and gums, then a homemade one using essential oils can be one of the best that you choose.
Essential oils have lots of benefits and they can improve your oral health and at the same time boost your health and appearance. By combining the best essential oils and other ingredients, it will be possible for you to come up with natural homemade toothpaste that you can fully rely on.
Essential oils – For healthy gums and teeth, the best essential oils to use include spearmint, clove, cinnamon, peppermint and myrrh. There could also be others that are also suitable for the toothpaste and you can choose according to what you feel you can tolerate and enjoy when making the toothpaste. The oils have properties and qualities that naturally work in promoting better oral health, strengthening teeth and keeping the gums in top shape. Some will also whiten tooth naturally so you have an enhanced smile and confidence.
Trace minerals – Trace minerals are needed for this natural toothpaste because they remineralize tooth enamel and also restore it.
Coconut and sesame oil – They are the best base oils for the natural homemade toothpaste. Coconut keeps the toothpaste together and it offers antibacterial values thanks to the lauric acid that it contains. Sesame oil, on the other hand softens the paste making it easy for you to squeeze to use.
Calcium magnesium powder – They are very helpful in promoting teeth and bone health. The magnesium ensures calcium is absorbed properly, whereas the calcium takes care of teeth health.
Bentonite clay and baking soda – The bentonite clay binds to and also draws out all impurities so that the mouth is not only detoxed but the teeth also get whitened and by stain removal. With its high contents of silica, magnesium and calcium, the clay remineralizes teeth too. Baking soda on the other hand cleans the teeth, wards off bacteria and removes stains.
Melt 4 tablespoons of coconut oil in double boiler and then add 4 tablespoons of bentanite clay, 3 of sesame oil, 4 of calcium magnesium powder and 3 of baking soda. You can then add three drops of each essential oil you including clove, myrrh, spearmint, peppermint and cinnamon followed by 12 drops of trace minerals.
Use a wooden spoon to stir together until you have achieved consistency in the mixture. Allow to cool for it to harden. You can place your jar filled with the toothpaste in the fridge, then stir every five minutes to ensure that everything remains uniform.
Once it cools and thickens, transfer to a squeezable silicone tube or tubes depending on the quantity of the toothpaste.
The homemade essential oil toothpaste may not be the most attractive in looks, but it definitely is safe and beneficial. Try other essential oil products at home to improve your health.
