I have gotten on a coconut oil kick for awhile now as well as am regularly checking out new recipes. Lately, I have encountered a lot of details regarding tooth paste active ingredients as well as the concerns they could in fact trigger as opposed to avoid– and also it alarmed me.
2 active ingredients that have some pretty bad cover are:
1. Glycerin: It gives toothpaste a great velvety structure and coats the teeth for “defense”, but at the same time it additionally quits re-enamalization (so tooth cavities can’t self-heal).
2. Sodium flouride: A byproduct of light weight aluminum manufacturing that can additionally be found in rat poisonous substances and industrial pesticides).
Terrifying things, huh? Well, as opposed to flip out concerning it every single time I comb my teeth, I decided to make my very own. As well as indeed– I included some fantastic coconut oil.
I am thrilled to have actually found a substitute that I in fact enjoy using and also enjoy making. I like that I could tweak the recipe depending upon my personal inclination at the time (sweeter, minty, fruity, etc– it’s all about what important oils I put in it). I’ve made a set with grapefruit oil and it has a citrus-tang to it, which was revitalizing for the summertime. Now I am utilizing mint oil and I love the minty taste.
