Make Your Own Drugs – Homemade Coconut Oil Fluoride Free Toothpaste
Posted by Viola Woolcott
Fluoride is said to be good for your teeth. It is supposed to protect them, where really, it is a poisonous chemical and all else BUT healthy. Fluoride causes cancer, damages your nervous system and if you don’t stop using fluoride it even weakens your teeth and bones. Fluoride is used in rat poison. The Nazis used to add it to the prisoner’s drinking water to make their prisoners more placid and make them easy to control.
So now tell me, why are you still using fluoride? I don’t know about you, but I think it is time to get rid of your fluoride toothpaste. Most health shops sell various types of fluoride free toothpastes and even some over the counter shops have them available. Or just make your own fluoride free toothpaste.
Raw, organic coconut oil is the main ingredient in homemade toothpaste. Coconut oil is naturally anti-bacterial as well as anti-fungal. Needless to say, but when you brush your teeth, it is a real powerful killer for those harmful bacteria that are also responsible for gingivitis.
Brushing your teeth on a regular basis with coconut oil eliminates bleeding and is excellent for sore gums. The oil has even been known to reverse some decaying of your teeth. If you suffers from gingivitis you can massage some of the coconut oil into the gum area on a regular basis as well as using it in your toothpaste.
Thrush localised in your mouth is a classic. Tongue brushing with the oil helps with thrush or a fungal problem in your mouth by brushing your tongue with the oil.
“Baking Soda” is another key ingredient of homemade fluoride free toothpaste. Baking Soda acts as a mild abresive providing gentle cleansing. Baking Soda is alkaline. Therefore it neutralises acids in your mouth, which are very often the cause number one for tooth decay. And if you fancy a ‘sweeter’ breath, baking soda is for you, it absorbs odours.
To make your own natural fluoride free toothpaste use a mixture of half RAW organic coconut oil and half of baking soda. So whatever measurement you are using, basically use the same quantities. Try a small batch first and if you find there is something ‘missing’, you can always add a few drops of essential oil of your choice. Some add Stevia for a sweeter taste, but to me it is best in it’s more natural form. Mix all of your ingredients in a glass jar with a lid. As the coconut oil is anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial there is no real need to keep your jar in the fridge.
Below 75 degrees coconut oil is solid. Above 75 degrees the oil becomes liquid. So don’t be surprised if the mixture changes with the weather. Rinse your sink with warm water after cleaning your teeth to stop the oil from going hard in your pipes.
