I’ve been getting a lot of questions about teeth and dental hygiene. One of the biggest questions is: How do I make my own toothpaste? What do I do about all that fluoride? I heard it’s bad for me. Well, in this post I’m going to show you how to do it yourself make your own toothpaste. And also I’m going to tell you a little ancient secret that a lot of people are using nowadays called “oil pulling”.
So what do you need to make your own toothpaste? Real simple and easy: Coconut oil, baking soda, and a little bit of your favorite essential oil depending on what it is. Just to add a little bit of the flavor into it as well.
Our mouth is the first step in digesting anything. So a lot of the stuff people put on their teeth in these toothpastes nowadays aren’t really good for you. In particular, one of my worst enemies: Fluoride. You may be thinking, well, my dentist tells me to, you know, brush my teeth before I’d all the time. They put these fluoride trays in my teeth to make sure that I don’t get cavities, all these other things, and that my friends is a big misconception in my own personal opinion. You want to still put fluoride in your mouth, feel free, but there’s plenty of evidence out there.
In particular, the Harvard study that was just recently done, they concluded that over 27 studies throughout time, showed that children that use fluoride actually damaged their mental cognition, their mental ability. So if you care about your kids, care about you, I wouldn’t be using fluoride.
One thing it also does is it disrupts your pineal gland. Pineal gland is that acorn-shaped gland in your head that gives you the ability to dream, that gives you the ability to have lucid dreams, to be creative, to connect to your higher source, whatever you want to call it. It disrupts that whatsoever.
So I would use this toothpaste. I would get something like Toms or something in the grocery store that doesn’t contain fluoride most definitely. But if you want to make your own, this is how you do it.
Before I make the toothpaste, I wanted to tell you about oil pulling and how easy this ancient method for cleaning your teeth and optimizing your health really simple.
You grab a tablespoon of coconut oil, you’re going to put it in your mouth and you’re going to swish it around about 15 to 20 minutes every single night before you go to bed. And what that does when doing it, it actually pulls the bacteria, pulls all the bad stuff out of your mouth, gets rid of the toxins. A lot of people report back, and if you’ve had sinus infections, your lymphatic system has been damaged throughout your life. It actually starts to remedy that, which is pretty cool and it’s simple.
So that’s how you do oil pulling. Let’s get on with making the toothpaste. We make it by adding coconut. So why is coconut oil so good for your teeth? That’s antimicrobial, antibacterial, and antiviral. It’s really good at getting rid of the bad bacteria in your mouth without killing the good bacteria. So maybe one tablespoon into one tablespoon of baking soda. It’s a one-to-one ratio.
Baking soda, mild abrasive. It cleans the teeth and it also helps restore the pH balance in the mouth. And then also you add just a couple drops of your essential oil into it. It’s going to freshen it up. It’s going to make it taste great. You’re absolutely gonna love it. You can add a little Stevia to it if you wanted to.
For lifer, the toothpaste is done and I want you to take one really good care of your smile because when you take good care of your smile and you actually choose to smile as an adult, you know, as kids, we smiled like 270 times a day as an adult five times. And this is a study that was conducted, so you want to make sure that you’re smiling all day long. It’s going to help you age gracefully. It’s going to reduce stress and it just sends a signal to your whole body to lower that cortisol hormone and put yourself in an optimum state.
So the purpose of my blog is not only to show you a healthier alternative to making toothpaste, but it’s to get you to recognize that you need to smile more. And to do that, I want you to take a picture of yourself right now. Take a selfie and post it on Facebook. And for more tips, tools, tactics, techniques that you can use in your own life to radically save money, to change your wellbeing, to change your health.
