The coconut oil is amazing for keeping your oral health. It has strong antifungal and antibacterial properties, therefore it prevents and treats oral thrush, oral candidiasis, mouth infections, while also preventing colds, tonsillitis, herpes and oral cancer.
Oily vitamin A intensely nourishes the gums – they become stronger and thus prevents bleeding gums and gum retraction.
The banana peel whitens the teeth up to several shades.
The basil disinfects, and has antifungal and antimicrobial properties, offering a fresh breath and also being dried and grounded, is slightly abrasive, scrubbing the inside of the mouth, thus slowing tartar.
Baking soda intensely cleans the teeth, removes dental stains left by coffee, wine, cigarettes, dark fruit, chocolate etc. Baking soda also prevents cavities and keeps the teeth healthy.
Keep the toothpaste in the fridge in a seal-tight container.
