Natural Dental Care

You go to the dentist, they clean your teeth, then send you home with a new tube of toothpaste. Six months later you are back in their chair, and here is at least part of the reason why.

The next time you find yourself holding a tube of toothpaste, read the ingredients. One will likely be sodium lauryl sulfate. If so, throw it into your cleaning basket for scrubbing grout in your bathroom or for ring-around-the-collar in your laundry. That is an industrial-strength detergent originally developed for cleaning munitions factory floors during the war, so they wouldn’t have to miss a shift over mopping the grease up. They could just spray down the floor during lunch break and run 24-hour shifts.

As a trans-dermal carrier for emergency situations, it’s a life-saver that passed out of the liver in four days. But if you are brushing your teeth with it, washing your hair with it, using body wash made with it, and washing your dishes without gloves, it is always in your liver. And the properties that make it trans-dermal shear cell walls away from each other, so your gums are not so firm and healthy as they could be.

If your gums are in really bad shape and you have deep pockets, toss the commercial toothpaste and do what the Aussies do; brush your teeth with Tea Tree Oil (but don’t swallow). Myrrh Essential Oil is also especially good for gums, so rub a drop of Myrrh Essential Oil diluted with 3 drops of an extra-virgin cooking oil onto your gums before you go to bed. Your gums should improve within a few weeks. But be advised that if you use the Tea Tree for too long, though, your teeth will start to discolour.

I used this regimen after my gums were surgically stripped, simply because it desensitized the now-exposed roots. But switching from commercial toothpaste, the gums grew back and have been healthy ever since. And my teeth are white.

So go to the health store and get a toothpaste without the sodium lauryl sulfate…or make your own tooth-care products.

Gentle Toothpaste

1 T. Bentonite Clay (for internal use)
1 T. Baking Soda
1 t. Glycerine (for internal use)
1 drop Peppermint or Clove Essential Oil

Mix together well, and apply to a clean toothbrush. If you have problems with your gums, use a drop of Tea Tree Oil and a drop of Myrrh Essential Oil instead. Not so tasty, but your gums will love you for it. When they improve, then use the Peppermint or Clove.

Tooth Whitener

1 T. Baking Soda (Sodium Bicarbonate)
1 T. Salt
1/4 t. Citric Acid
Hydrogen Peroxide, for internal use (in a spray bottle )

Put the dry ingredients into a small sterile jar. Dampen your brush with the Hydrogen peroxide and dip your brush into the powder and spritz it again if too dry. Brush your teeth with this until you have the degree of glaring brilliance you desire, then go back to using your more gentle toothpaste.

Happy Teeth

Toothache Oil

2 T. Almond Oil
2 Aspirin, ground very fine with a mortar and pestle
3 drops Clove Oil (from a pharmacy is best)

Mix and keep in a sterile dropper bottle. Put one drop on cavity or abscess as needed until the unhappy patient can get to the dentist.

Mouthwash
6 oz. Distilled Water
2 oz. Vodka
3 drops Peppermint or Clove Essential Oil
3 drops Thyme Essential Oil (during cold & flu season)

Keep this in a sterile food-grade plastic bottle, and use as needed.

HerbsPlusBeadWorks Tooth Restorer

2 c. water
1 t. TSP (Trisodium Phosphate)
1 T. Baking Soda (Sodium Bicarbonate)

Shake it all up and swish a little in your mouth. I squirt this into the tank of my Waterpik and have been doing so for many months, It stopped my aging teeth from hurting and tightened them right up.
If the idea of using TSP concerns you, remember that you need some phosphate for strong bones and teeth. You will be amazed how quickly this works.

Hi,

If you’re in a hot, dry climate, you could have no better friend than Ylang Ylang essential oil (except maybe a saltwater swimming pool).

Ylang Ylang is a very cooling oil with wonderful moisturizing properties. I love it in blends for dry, chapped skin (and that can happen no matter what climate you’re in).

I have a blend for Dry & Chapped Skin Butter that you can make yourself. (Find it here!) The recipe is so nourishing to skin, it works well even with no essential oils, but the oils can add a layer of nourishment.

Here’s a blend suggestion that combines perfectly with the skin butter recipe:

  • 35 drops Ylang Ylang (Cananga odorata)
  • 60 drops Orange (Citrus sinensis)
  • 45 drops Patchouli (Pogostemom cablin)

Does it seem like a lot of essential oil? That’s because the recipe makes 14 oz (392 gm) of body butter!

Does it seem like a lot of body butter? That’s because dry, chapped skin needs extra love!

So use your body butter every day, and enjoy!

Take care,

Andrea
