What brand of toothpaste you are using? Did you know what are the ingredients? Most commercial toothpaste selling on the market today were added with artificial colors and chemical sweeteners. From continued using, those chemicals and additives have a great opportunity to reside in your body system which could be toxic to your health.
So what is the alternative? I suggests to try simple homemade toothpaste to avoid harmful chemicals in your personal care routine. One good alternative is the Dr. Christophers Formulas Herbal Tooth & Gum Powder. Though, it’s not necessary to buy it since you can make your own toothpaste at home. It’s easy and inexpensive, and you have first-hand knowledge on what are the ingredients that make up the toothpaste.
The good thing of DIY project is you can modify it to suit your needs. If you want natural tooth whitener, you can try to make Whitening Tooth Powder for non-toxic oral care.
To help you out, I would like to share this Peppermint Sage Tooth Powder recipe I’ve found at DIYNatural. This homemade whitening tooth powder recipe contains only a few ingredients that can all contribute to a healthy smile and promote fresh breath. It’s powerful-packed ingredients include bentonite clay, baking soda, dried and finely ground sage leaf, pure sea salt and peppermint essential oil. Though, you have an option to add xylitol for sweetness.
Note: You can source your ingredients at your local health food store and online stores such as Amazon. If you want to go to Amazon, you can check out peppermint essential oil and other ingredients.
