You are more than likely are brushing your teeth with poison everyday.  Take a look at your tube of toothpaste.  It probably has a warning label to call poison control if it is swallowed.  Why would something that you put in your mouth on a daily basis be poisonous?  The reason is fluoride.

natural whitening toothpasteThe fluoride compound, sodium fluoride, was first added to toothpaste in the early 1900s because it was thought to help prevent against tooth decay.  However, when fluoride is ingested it can cause serious health risks, especially for young children.

Because of these adverse effects, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires a poison warning on every tube of fluoride toothpaste sold in United States.  A study published in the U.S. National Library of Medicine showed that the average person ingests around 33% of the toothpaste that is put on their toothbrush.

How to Make Saline Solution:
8 oz Distilled water
2 t Himalayan pink salt
1/2 T Xylitol
Heat water over medium-high heat.  Add Himalayan pink salt and let dissolve completely.  This should only take a few minutes.  The water does not need to reach boiling point.  Remove from heat.  Add xylitol.  Let cool to room temperature.  (It is important to add the xylitol after the solution is removed from the heat because you do not want it to cook.  It could alter the flavor and result in a bitter taste.)
 
 
Toothpaste Directions:

Place saline solution into a mixing bowl after it cools down to room temperature.  Add calcium bentonite clay, baking soda, coconut oil, and cinnamon (cinnamon is optional).  Using a fresh aloe vera leaf, squeeze the juice from leaf and add to mixture.  Stir until ingredients are completely blended.  Add food-grade hydrogen peroxide.  Add food-grade essential oil.  Blend well until you have a smooth creamy texture.  Transfer mixture into a container with an airtight lid.
