This toothpaste does not have in its content fluoride or any other chemical. It is consisted of coconut oil, baking soda and xylitol, which show powerful antibacterial properties, and of course neem.
The most valuable ingredient in this recipe is neem which it makes this toothpaste so efficient and amazing. Neem, in fact, is a type of tree that is commonly found in the tropical areas, where people in developing countries for years have used neem as a tooth brush. They have separated it into twigs and then chew them. This aids in the prevention against cavities, gum diseases and boosts the general health of the teeth.
- 1 tablespoon of neem powder
- 3 tablespoons of baking soda
- 3 tablespoons of extra virgin coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon of xylitol
Method of preparation:
