For many months, our family tested out all kinds of non-fluoride tooth cleaning products. Our favorite was some pricey neem bark and licorice root toothpaste. But then I came across a recipe on Facebook and posted it. A friend commented with her experiences and encouraged me to forget the glycerin, which leaves a coating on the teeth that prevents saliva from doing its job to repair teeth. Her cavities healed themselves this way! No fillings!
So I was excited to try the recipe.
Here is an estimate of my “recipe,” which I never measure.
Coconut Oil Tooth Cleaner
1/4 c. Coconut oil
1 heaping tsp. Baking Soda
1/2-1 tsp. unrefined Celtic Sea Salt (optional)
1 full dropper of liquid Stevia (optional) 6 drops essential oil (food grade) or peppermint extract
Directions: add ingredients to your container and blend well.
Dip your toothbrush into the mixture and brush!
For flavors, try orange, peppermint, or clove essential oils (which can help ailing teeth), or try using flavored Stevia, like chocolate or fruit punch.
