Oral hygiene is an important part of the overall human body hygiene. Everyone wants a beautiful and shining smile. In order to have healthy teeth you need to take care of them on a daily basis. An important item is the toothpaste you choose.
You need to following ingredients:
- 2 Tbsp. clay (white, green, whatever you have or like to use);
- 2 Tbsp. baking soda;
- 2 tsp. glycerin;
- 1 tsp. coconut oil;
- ½ tsp. fine see salt;
- 10 drops mint essential oil;
You just need to mix the above ingredient in a bowl. You need to add water, just enough to make a creamy composition.
All the above ingredients have beneficial properties for your teeth:
Baking soda – it is used for its whitening properties;
Sea salt – helps remove the food debris from your teeth;
Coconut oil – helps assimilate calcium and acts like a shield against dental caries;
Clay – it’s rich in minerals and helps mineralize and nourish the teeth;
Essential oils – besides giving a pleasant taste to the toothpaste they also help deeply clean the teeth.
The quantities presented above are just estimative. You can make, more or less than I’ve suggested, but I do not recommend making too much. It’s enough if you make a quantity that you can use for about 2 weeks. Also I recommend you store it in a glass recipient covered with lid.
