Did you know that apart from the daily tooth wash with toothpaste, dental floss and mouth wash you can also use a natural ingredient that has proven to be quite effective in cleaning your teeth and maintaining them healthy?
Yes, there is such an ingredient and it has been used since Ancient times to remove bad breathe and bacteria from your mouth.
All these can be done with only 1 tbsp of coconut oil.
Coconut oil has anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties, which make it an ally in the fight against the impurities and harmful bacteria that can cause dental plaque and tartar.
You can buy coconut oil on the market as it is available in any shop.
However, you must be careful at what kind of oil you buy.
We recommend you to opt for virgin coconut oil and avoid buying coconut oil for “cosmetic use” as it is filled with chemicals, making it dangerous for the health of your skin.
- It eliminates bad breath;
- It prevents tooth decay;
- It reduces the risk of gingivitis and other oral diseases.
In order to have healthy and white teeth and a fresh breath we recommend you to try this natural remedy:
- 30 gr of virgin coconut oil;
- 45 gr of baking soda;
In a bowl, melt the coconut oil and add the baking soda, mixing until you get a smooth paste.
Wash your teeth with this paste the same way you did before, when you used a commercial toothpaste, on a daily basis.
In a matter of days you will notice a change. Your teeth will become whiter and cleaner and your breath will be fresher.
You can use the same paste to brush your tongue as well, in this way you will eliminate the bacteria deposited in this area.
Unlike many commercial toothpastes, this coconut-based toothpaste can also leave a pleasant odor in your mouth.
Keep in mind that coconut oil becomes solid at 24-26 degrees, therefore you should not throw it in the sink as it can block the pipes. Instead you can throw it in the trash.
