Hi, my name is Dae (or that’s what I call myself -is a true statement) and I’m here to write and contribute to the theme of Wellness in all it’s aspects. I will be covering Diet, Herbs as Verbs, Movements, Meditations, Music and Drumming, Dream work, OBE’s and Metaphysics 101. (Who and what you are as a soul in three dimensional reality at this time and space). Resources, reading material, live classes and workshops are and will be available in your world at this time.
Let me start with a simple toothpaste made with things you may have in your kitchen.
Recently, I stumbled across an article that talked about TOOTHPASTE INGREDIENTS and the issues they can actually cause rather than prevent— and it startled me. So I did more research and found more chemicals in toothpaste that I didn’t like.
Two ingredients that have some pretty bad wrap are:
- Glycerin: It gives toothpaste a nice creamy texture and coats the teeth for “protection”, but at the same time it also stops re-enamalization (so cavities can’t SELF-HEAL.)
- Sodium flouride: A by-product of aluminum manufacturing that is found in rat poisons and INDUSTRIAL PESTICIDES).
Scary stuff, huh? Well, rather than freak out about it every time I brush my teeth, I decided to make my own. And yes— I threw in some wonderful COCONUT OIL.
I am thrilled to have found a replacement that I actually enjoy using and have fun making. I like that I can tweak the recipe depending on my personal preference at the time (sweeter, minty, fruity, etc— it’s all about what essential oils I put in it). I’ve made a batch with grapefruit oil and it has a citrus-tang to it, which was refreshing for the summer. Now I am using eucalyptus oil and I love the minty taste.
