Did you know regular store-bought toothpaste is filled with unnatural chemicals? Sodium fluoride is commonly the main ingredient in all kinds of toothpaste and also happens to be the main ingredient in rat poison. If that doesn’t tell you something I don’t know what will. If you take the time to read the back of your toothpaste you might see something like this…
Notice the part where it says to keep out of reach of children and to call Poison Control if accidentally swallowed? I don’t know about you but that definitely doesn’t sound like something I want to be putting in my mouth twice a day.
So what to do about it? How about making your own! Making your own toothpaste is the best way to know exactly what you are putting in your body, and to control what you don’t want to put in your body. It is so simple to do, takes only moments to make, and often can be cheaper than regular toothpaste if ingredients are bought in bulk. Try out a few different recipes until you find the toothpaste that works for you. Feel better about brushing your teeth and make the healthier choice by making your own toothpaste.
