Nice, Clean, Healthy, Safe teeth!

When we focus on health, a lot of areas of life can crop up. One that has come up recently is the area of dental health. Why would we be so careful what we eat and drink, and yet at the end of the day put something toxic - with a warning label on it - on our teeth?

There is an alternative. You can make your own toothpaste:
1 TBSP castille soap
5 TBSP coconut oil, 
   essential oil (30-40 drops of mint, or whatever type you prefer)
1 TBSP water
1 TBSP Xylitol - (clinically shown to starve those cavity causing bacteria)
Put them all in a blender, and mix it up! Put it in a pump dispenser and clean away.

Play around with the recipe. Have a favourite? Comment below!
