Homemade Eucalyptus Toothpaste

Homemade Eucalyptus Toothpaste

If you’re looking for a safe alternative to the common toothpastes, then there are many alternative options, ranging from the more expensive natural toothpastes (be careful– some contain some of these questionable ingredients), to simple recipes you can make at home like this one.

EUCALYPTUS OIL is excellent for treating gum disease as well as sinus and respiratory infections, it kills pathogens, microbes and treats bad breath.

Some ingredients to be wary of in toothpaste products:-

Glycerin – Certainly not bad in and of itself if properly sourced, but its use in toothpaste may not be ideal. Some suggest it may leave a layer of film on the teeth that prevents remineralization. It can also be dangerous to our health if processed with dangerous chemicals, and I assume most toothpastes contain the cheapest possible source.

Sodium Laurel Sulfate – SLS is a known carcinogen. Some natural companies still stand behind it’s use and claim it is safe, but I prefer to stay on the safe side here.

Saccharin – This was the first ingredient I questioned when I started to re-think my approach to dental health and toothpaste several years ago. I avoid artificial sweeteners like the plague, as most of them are proven carcinogens, several contribute to obesity and other health problems, and some are excitotoxins, meaning they cause rapid firing and death of brain cells. And yet, we see the artificial sweetener, saccharin, in our toothpaste.

Fluoride – You knew I’d get to this one. I don’t claim to be an expert on fluoride, but from my basic understanding, fluoride is highly toxic in the form found in toothpaste and never found in nature in this state. If you’re trying to rebuild tooth enamel, just like with glycerin, a “protective” layer of fluoride is not ideal. It is also suggested that the layer it forms on teeth is much thinner than originally thought and is useless against protecting teeth from decay anyway.

      Hi Sunny, Im not sure if there is a toothpaste available but have heard reports that it is very good for the gums and healing gum disease, people put a few drops on there toothpaste, and some just brush gums with emu oil each day, i have just had an amazing testimonial from a lady, here is a snippet, “I have Lichen Complanus in my mouth which can be very sore at times. I was told by my dentist that there was nothing that could be done for this, so I decided to try Emu Oil. I used this three times a day for months. I have to tell you, the dentist wanted to know what I had done to clear this up. So I told him: EMU OIL.” I hope this info has been helpful. https://www.emuridge.com.au/shop/emu-oil/
      Kind regards Bev
