Body Care - Coconut Oil Toothpaste

25 May 2019 17:00:00 | Author: Caryl


You may have heard of oil pulling, which is the process of swishing oil around in your mouth for up to 20 minutes at a time.  Well, you can also use coconut oil for making your own toothpaste.  

It is also known for its bacteria killing properties.

Since I've been using this toothpaste (and oil pulling), I have noticed a big difference in the health of my teeth and gums.  In fact, at my last dental and hygenist check-up, I was told that I had the cleanest mouth they had seen and to keep doing whatever I was doing!


Coconut Oil ToothpasteIngredients

4 tbsp coconut oil
3 tbsp baking soda
10-20 drops essential oil (I like peppermint or clove)


Mix everything really well in a small bowl (I like to whip the oil with a hand held whisk).
Transfer to a jar and seal.

Use this toothpaste just the same as regular toothpaste.


Note: I have also heard that adding a tsp or so of turmeric powder will help whiten teeth!  I know, that sounds a bit strange, considering that turmeric is well known for staining things an orangey-yellow colour, but I'm giving it a go and will let you know what happens! :)


Have you tried this for yourself?  If not, hopefully this will get you inspired enough to start making your own.   Let me know how you get on!
