Believe it or not, Charcoal powder works better than anything I've tried and looks hilarious until you get used to it.

I have never heard of that but I know charcoal is very useful!

No B.S., it works very well. I use it about every 3 or 4 days. The rest of the time I use the Soda/D-Earth mix.

My typical question with a lot of the stranger/more exotic items is where to find them? Online and or in a store? Also preferable cost effective options! Thankshf

Re: Whiten And Polish Teeth Naturally And Safely With Baking Soda!
Some of our baking soda supply comes from a couple of mines in Colorado and Wyoming. Some is synthetically made using soda ash in water and carbon dioxide treated to produce a solid.

Chlorine-based bleach such as Clorox is a dilute solution of a chemical called sodium hypochlorite, with the formula NaOCl.

The most common form of bleach in U.S. homes is chlorine bleach, also called sodium hypochlorite.

I was wrong, bleach is alkaline, not acidic.
Bleach is an alkaline solution of a chemical called sodium hypochlorite, which acts as a base. It can also act as an oxidizing agent, and can react violently with hydrogen peroxide and produce oxygen gas.

Thank you! I learn something new every day here! I want to add especially never to mix bleach and ammonia! Those are a huuuuge no no. I'm amazed how many people have mixed the two with disastrous consequences trying to create a super cleaner. I don't like bleach I'm allergic and I never use it but if I did I wouldn't mix it with anything.

My mother brushed her teeth with baking soda daily, and never had a cavity - that's "never..."

Bought us kids regular toothpaste, as we hated the baking soda... Lot's of cavities!

Now, I take Mom's advice and use the baking soda. I have sensitive teeth (due to Sjogren's), but it doesn't bother me at all.

Thanks for the post!

 Quoting: UnmannedAerialPilot


Thank you!!! I've got a few more I'm going to post tonight or tomorrow! I have been so much happier and have saved so much money since I've gone the DIY and natural route!

I need to get serious about oil pulling since my gums bleed every time I brush my teeth and it's not the baking soda it started way before I started using it. I want to reverse this while I can. I'm glad you found a wonderful natural cure!

I'm going to try really hard to stick to oil pulling again. My problem is I wake up starving I forget to oil pull and then I eat something and you are supposed to do it first thing in the morning before food water and even brushing your teeth.

What oil do you use? I'm unsure which one works the best out of olive, sunflower, and sesame. I've heard people give a worthy mention to coconut oil for oil pulling but it's expensive and goes quickly and I enjoy eating it by the spoonful and putting it in my chai tea haha

Also, you guys make sure the oils are not "toasted"

I've been making my own toothpaste. Super easy.

Combine 1/2 baking soda and 1/2 coconut oil.

Add a couple drops of peppermint oil and you're good to go!

Great story! I am a true believer in baking soda! I love the stuff! Maybe it does prevent cavities or there is something in normal toothpaste that causes them.

I take a few tablespoons and add drops of water until it forms a paste not too clumpy not too watery then I lightly sprinkle sea salt on top.

Re: Whiten And Polish Teeth Naturally And Safely With Baking Soda!
I was unsure of trying this years ago because baking soda is mildly abrasive but then I thought well so what most toothpaste is even more abrasive. It's a great way to avoid fluoride. It essentially polishes your teeth while killing bacteria. It will whiten your teeth if you have surface stains from beverages but if the stains are the result of antibiotics that is a deep stain and you will need to bleach your teeth. I tried it mixed with sea salt and my teeth were not only whiter but they looked like I had just left the dentists office for a cleaning. Try it it's cheap and works great!

Sorry but you are mistaken.

Look up Gingival Recession on wiki

These things cause it

Abnormal tooth position, such as tooth crowding, giving inadequate cover of one or more teeth by the jaw bone.[1]
Hereditary thin, fragile or insufficient gingival tissue.[1]
Overaggressive brushing,[1] which causes the enamel at the gum line to be worn away by scrubbing the sides of the teeth in a washboard fashion
Periodontal disease[1]
Inadequate brushing or flossing, which allows bacteria to build up between the teeth, resulting in enzymes eating the bone away from the teeth
Improper flossing (i.e., flossing too roughly or aggressively)
Eating disorders, from self-induced vomiting
Dipping tobacco, which affects the mucus membrane lining in the mouth and will cause receding gums over time
Grinding of the teeth (bruxism)
Intentional gingival retraction. For example, the adult tooth may not grow out of the gum, and to remedy this, a procedure called an exposure is done. It involves the gum tissue being cut open to allow the adult tooth to grow out. This is a less common cause of gum recession.
Adult orthodontic movement of teeth.
Piercings in the lip or tongue that wear away the gum by rubbing against it.
Sensitivity to detergents such as sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), which are found in most commercial toothpastes.[2]
Scurvy

Re: Whiten And Polish Teeth Naturally And Safely With Baking Soda!
I tried to abandon fluoride toothpaste during 4-5 years listening to GLP advices, I only used baking soda and salt.
I got rid of my migraine BUT my teeth started to decay and became yellow, baking soda did absolutely nothing and I got pretty much f:ing damage after stopping to use high quality toothpaste. Like it or not fluoride HARDENS the teeth by a chemical reaction (electron exchange, see wikipedia).

THIS advice (abandon regular toothpaste) was my greatest GLP mistake!

Also, my gum was bleeding during the non-fluoride periode, I admit that I now use expensive fluoride toothpaste, I managed to put my teeth in better shape but now I should pay big money for the damages.

When my teeth softened after not using fluoride my fillings/around them started to erode, all of them, and now I can't pay tens of thousand of USD for the repair (I visited a dentist for calculating a cost), to listening to the advice to abandon flouride toothcreme is probably the worst mistake I ever made during my time (9 years) on GLP.

At least you have to use a herbal toothpaste with alcohol and good ingreadients. Our lifestyle won't allow abandonment of a hardening fluoride paste but one has to use it very carefully, not swallowing it.

The only sure thing Flouride hardens is your Arteries.

Read about it here

[link to articles.mercola.com]

Something else could be to blame for your teeth softening.

In fact acid erosion softens teeth. They don't soften on their own because of a lack of Flouride that is ludicrous.

Do you drink a lot of fruit juice? The longer it sits on your teeth the more damage it does. I try to always rinse with water after every glass of juice or consuming anything acidic soda is one of the worst.

Baking soda is alkaline btw

I'm not trolling.
I a veggie since many years and my teeth was OK as long as I used fluoride paste. I always felt that when I use fluoride paste my teeth "felt harder". I don't want to burst your bubble BUT studies shows that fluoride toothpaste using dramatically reduced caries during many decades, it's a scientific fact proved in laboratories with experiments. (I saw a documentary once that why I say this)

I say it as a new age guy wanting to avoid poisons. The problem here is that fluoride hardens the teeth BUT it has a by-effect when it enters the body tissue. It's a balance thing, maybe many others have stronger teeth so they can abandon toothpaste. I wish I could do the same but I just try to not swallow it while it keeps my teeth in shape, I admit that I have pretty weak ones.

I still use baking soda in my mouth wash for the alcaline effect but alone it won't work for me, so it's a friendly warning here.

I didn't view your message as trolling. I just wanted to make sure you covered all bases before making a final decision on your stance on baking soda. It's far too often I see people demonize a particular thing because they didn't understand it, used it incorrectly, didn't follow directions, thought something was to blame and it was something else, etc. I just ask that you make sure. I know not everything works for everyone. I meant no offense to you and I tried to read your post with an open mind even though it conflicts with my view. hf

I like to mix a bit of peppermint essential oil into the mix as well, and then let the moisture evaporate as much as possible before use. Good luck! Commercial toothpaste is poison! =^.^=

It's seriously nasty stuff. My skin turns red if I'm exposed to it, I wound up with blisters on my lips using white strips, my stomach felt like I had indeed swallowed poison, when I have breathed it in I have nearly passed out my vision blurs and I cough up a lung. It's a poison for sure and I avoid it like the plague. I can honestly say I discourage the use of it for anything it is very destructive there is always a safer and healthier option hf
