Not many of you are aware of the fact that the oral health significantly affects your overall health. Dental hygiene is of high importance as a healthy mouth can prevent infections from entering the body.
Furthermore, studies have shown that plaque build-up causes an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and poorly managed diabetes.
However, commercial toothpastes are not the best solution to maintain oral hygiene as they are loaded with plastic and dangerous chemicals, such as triclosan, sodium lauryl sulfate, fluoride, propylene glycol, diethanolamine, and artificial sweeteners.
On the other hand, the following paste which consists coconut oil, peppermint, and turmeric, provides magnificent effects and does not contain any chemical or toxic ingredients!
Coconut oil has powerful antibacterial properties, treats inflammation, and fights bacteria.
Turmeric is rich in antioxidants and has potent anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties. It effectively treats common dental issues such as gum disease.
Coconut oil and turmeric can also help you whiten your teeth and give them a natural sparkly shine.
This is how to prepare this completely natural paste:
- 1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
- 1-2 Drops Peppermint Essential Oil
- 1 Teaspoon or 2 Capsules Turmeric
You should mix the ingredients to prepare the paste, and use it to brush your teeth as normally.
