Now you get to control the quality of the ingredients you put into your mouth leading  to a happier smile!

Most Toothpaste manufaturers  put cheap ineffective and HARMFUL chemicals  into their products ranging from synthetic alcohols, FD&C blue dye, Sodium lauryl sulfate, Fluoride and much much more!

Ever Wonder Why They Say “Could Be harmful If swallowed?” Id say thats a pretty good indication you should not be putting it into your mouth period!

Alright enough of the scary lets get started on our potent homemade toothpaste!

how to make toothpaste, teeth whitening, diy toothpaste, all natural toothpaste, toothpaste recipe, baking soda and coconut oil toothpaste, essential oils and oral care

Here Is A List Of Our Potent Ingredients & Why We Will Be Using Them!

Coconut oil: The base of our toothpaste! This will help give your product texture! Coconut oil also has many benefits to your oral health. Its antibacterial properties are great for fighting plaque but its also known for healing gum tissue!

Baking Soda: Now here is how your gonna get those pearly whites!

Baking soda is often used as a natural teeth whitener. It is known for removing stains.

*There is a myth that baking soda is to harsh for everyday use. Let me just clear something up, it is PERFECTLY safe for everyday use and it WILL NOT cause harm to your enamel so long as you have healthy alkaline saliva WHICH by the way baking soda helps maintain the alkaline ph balance to your saliva every time you use it!

Essential Oils: This is whats going to make your mouth feel minty fresh! Only instead of using menthol as all tooth paste manufatureres do we are using the real deal! Peppermint and cinnamon essential oils are my favorites for toothpaste. Peppermint for freshness and its anti inflamitory properties and cinnamon for its highly anti microbial properties!

Fun Fact: Essential oils are all anti bacterial, anti fungal, and anti viral. They are also able to penetrate through your gums to promote healing!

Salt: PLEASE do not use table salt that is just plain bad for you! Any natural salt of your choice is great and will help with whitening and in keeping your saliva nice and alkaline!

So here are your exact Measurements. (This makes about 1 months worth of toothpaste)

2 Tablespoons Coconut oil

2 1/2 Tablespoons baking soda

5-15 drops of essential oils (depending on your preference)

Pinch Of Salt

Here is How You Do It

Step 1. Mix essential oils with your coconut oil mashing the oil with a fork to make it easier to work with

Step 2. Mix in the baking soda one tablespoon at a time and mix well until it is identical to a thick toothpaste like consistency!

step 3. Add your salt and package it!

NOW HOW EASY WAS THAT?

After being asked many times if I have ever tried the “No Poo Method” I decided I may as well give this a shot and see what the hype is over this natural alternative to cleaning hair. I also decided to do it because of the benefits I had researched such as; eliminating chemicals from my routine ,and its much cheaper. Apple cider vinegar has a wonderful effect on restoring the ph balance of your hair and stripping it clean of toxins also intrigued me so I set out to a 7 day experiment!

Day 1:Apple cider vinegar no poo method, no poo method, hair experiment, apple cider vinegar for hair, hair detox, hair treatment

So typically I wash my hair every other day to every 2 days because I have an oily scalp. Today is day 1 and I washed my hair using my vinegar water mixture. 75% water to 25% vinegar.

Results: I am quite pleased so far. My hair seems very similar to how it is when it is shampood but actually looks a little shiner! So far I am quite pleased with it and there is no icky vinegar smell to my hair at all like I feared there might be. 🙂

Day 2: I DO SMELL LIKE VINEGAR!

By Day 3 I stopped blogging about this experiment due to my lack of enthusiasm for it due to the horrible smell. As you can see my hair looks pretty good and actually LIGHTER. My over all thoughts are on video here:

The Truth On Mascara

Did you know that most of the mascaras on the market contain ingredients that can actually do harm to your lashes?

After a while you may start to notice your lashes become brittle and dry and before you know it….they fall out! This is a good way for manufactures to get consumers to come back for more of their magic eyelash goop! 

 I will teach your how to get real results with YOUR lashes without having to pay for false promises that come in a plastic tube of black goop!

First And Foremost you need to have a healthy diet!

 Key Nutrients For Healthier & Longer Lashes! 

VITAMIN H: Vitamin H is actually a B vitamin and B vitamins are known for having good effects on the hair and lashes. B vitamins help the body metabolize fats and proteins and in result you get faster hair growth! You can buy Supplements at health food stores. Some ways to get this nutrient through your food is by eating things like eggs, beans, and nuts and seeds!

Antioxidants: Antioxidant rich foods like blueberries and believe it or not chocolate are fantastic at protecting your lashes and keeping them strong so eat foods rich in color!

Omega 3 Fatty acids: I cant stress how important it is to have healthy fats in your diet! Healthy fats come from things like fish, avocados, nuts and seeds. These fats are good to maintain your vibrant beauty and overall general health. Omega 3’s help your body absorb nutrients and vitamins to your blood stream.

Only when you are truly healthy from the inside it will exude on the outside.

Olive oil is my favorite natural treatment for lashes. Apply a drop to your finger and apply the oil to your lashes every night before bed.

~Another great oil is vitamin E oil

~A clever choice is Pomegranate oil as it is rich in antioxidants which will stimulate growth

Mascara Your Friend Or Your Enemy?

As I said at the start of this post most mascaras are causing harm to your lashes due to harmful preservatives and chemicals. Why would you want to settle for only temporary results anyways?

I highly suggest reducing the amount of mascara you apply and also reduce how often you apply it. Give your lashes a chance to recover once in a while at the very least.

The Bright Side 

There are healthy alternatives to mascaras one of my favorites is by 100% pure and I have the color blackberry. I have a full review on this mascara on my blog as well. Be sure to check that out!

 Mascaras rich in plant extracts, natural pigments, and  un-harmful  preservatives are a wiser choice. Natural Mascaras are often equally effective as the generic ones though they are harder to find.

I hope you found these tips helpful!

Much Love
