By making your own toothpaste you can avoid many of the artificial and toxic ingredients contained in commercial toothpaste, such as fluoride, propylene glycol, FD&C color pigments, triclosan, artificial sweeteners, alcohols and ethanol.
If your toothpaste has any of those ingredients in the label, you are basically brushing with toxic toothpaste.
It may be much wiser to avoid these types of conventional toothpaste since they can actively harm your dental and bodily health.
So, what do you need to have to make your own home made toothpaste?
Ingredients for DIY home made toothpaste
(Sea) salt and baking soda (sodium bicarbonate)
… the two indispensable, inexpensive and time-honoured mainstays in natural tooth care, treatment and healing.
Many top holistic dentists recommend baking soda mixed with a bit of sea salt as the best way to keep those pearly whites as well as the gums happy and healthy for life.
Get what you need
a small jar with a lid, like a baby food jar
baking soda (sodium bicarbonate)
Combine your dry ingredients in a small jar with a lid:
• three (3) parts Baking Soda
• one (1) part salt
pour between a teaspoon and a tablespoon of this DRY mixture from the container into your palm.
Liquid can be added to the dry mixture in your hand to create a paste each time you’re ready to brush with your home made toothpaste.
For liquid, you can use just water or improve the mix with …
• Colloidal Silver – safe if you still have mercury amalgam fillings
• Hydrogen peroxide – only if you have no metal (mercury/amalgam) fillings in your mouth
OR you can just dip your brush in the dry mix in your palm and start to brush.
Apart from having been handed down for generations as folk medicine(s), baking soda alone or combined with (sea) salt is/are recommended by a number of eminent health authors, incl. Dr. Hulda Regehr Clark, renegade dentist Dr. Robert Nara, psychic Edgar Cayce and physicist and healer Barbara Brennan.
Celebrity Julia Roberts has revealed that she uses a humble dollop of baking soda to brush her teeth.
Baking soda can and actually does dissolve orthodontic glue. Don’t use this recipe if you wear braces or any other kind of permanent/fixed dental correctors!
Salt is corrosive—don’t use it for brushing metal teeth [i.e. teeth with metal fillings, crowns etc
Also, baking soda in this fluoride-free home toothpaste may be abrasive on teeth if you do not wait for the baking soda to dissolve fully, and the hydrogen peroxide can be irritating if swallowed, so it should be substituted completely with water.
Honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised if the baking soda thing is a rumor put forth by toothpaste companies who don’t want you using such a cheap and effective way to clean your teeth.
Baking soda is far less abrasive than the other common toothpaste abrasive, hydrated silica (also known as sterilized wet sand).
Still concern about the possible abrasive nature of baking soda?
Baking Soda is less abrasive than all the common toothpaste brands, including brands labeled for sensitive teeth.
If you still feel it is too abrasive, try this …
Dr. Hulda Regehr Clark advises in her book The Cure For All Diseases: “To clean teeth, use plain water or chemically pure baking soda —but dissolve it in water first, otherwise it is too abrasive.”
Even though it will not taste very good… There are no toxic chemicals, and besides, making your own household products is just plain fun!
NOTE: According to the National Institutes of Health, “Most contact with household strength hydrogen peroxide is relatively harmless.
