DIY magically healing toothpaste and serum

“Do you ever wish your toothpaste magically healed your teeth?

Me too. When my daughter was 2, she had a defective molar. The dentists said the tooth would last six months to a year.

I went home and started doing research on dental health and what teeth are made of.

I discovered your tooth enamel is made up of many different minerals. Over time your teeth can lose these minerals reducing the strength of your enamel. I found that brushing with a blend of 3 organic natural clays, you can get these minerals to absorb into your enamel.

Over time these minerals will begin to strengthen, and remineralize your teeth. All by having her brush with specific minerals, she was able to SAVE that molar.

Dirty Mouth Toothpowder was created to save my daughters teeth. When it worked, I realized I could help a lot of other people out.” -via Primal Life Organics.

This was an ad for selling their products, which sound great!! And probably are. But wouldn’t you love to make them yourself for much less $$$?

I’ve been making my own products for years and believe me, it’s really easy to clean, whiten, detoxify and strengthen your teeth and gums for less money than you can buy in any store. .

————————–

Their Toothpowder Ingredients :

Bentonite clay, kaolin clay, French green clay, baking soda, and essential oils or flavorings of either peppermint, spearmint, clove bud etc…

—————————-

I add coconut oil to mine to make a paste instead of a powder. Plus a little activated charcoal to really whiten those choppers and detoxify your whole mouth. But if you want to use a powder only, just dip your brush in coconut oil before starting.

Some like to use charcoal separately because of the black color. But if you don’t mind it, the properties are truly whitening magic.

Essential Oils and other Natural Tips to Aid in the Prevention of H1N1, Swine Flu and Flu Viruses

I thought this was important enough to share…

Everyone should read this information on preventing the flu, swine flu, and H1N1 by using essential oils and following a few simple steps.

I think it’s so important to take good care of our own health and be responsible for our own well-being. By taking these simple steps, it could save your life!

1.      Wash your hands

2.      Use hand sanitizer

3.      Use a home/car/room diffuser

4.      Eat right, exercise and take a multivitamin

5.      Vitamin C

6.      Zinc

7.      Vitamin E

8.      Tea Tree steam inhalation

9.      Use these foods;

“(PRWEB) May 10, 2006 — A Biology teacher from Australia, named Stephen Jones, has done extensive research into the H5N1 virus and compiled a list of natural foods that are effective against it and listed others that are detrimental.”

Helpful foods:

  • ·        Garlic
  • ·        Green Tea
  • ·        Apple Juice
  • ·        Cranberry Juice
  • ·        St. John’s Wort tea

Detrimental foods:

  • Dairy products (increase mucous production)
  • Bananas – increases mucous production.
  • Honey
  • Chocolate
  • Echinacea
  • Kimchi
  • Elderberry juice
  • Micro Algae (Chlorella and Spirulina)

Health Care Provider seeking Swine Flu (H1N1) guidance

Thought I would post (with permission, of course) an email exchange from earlier this week. (The title of this post is the subject line of the Email.)

Marge,So sorry to bother you again.
My husband and I are both health care providers, and both actually on the “front line” in emergency medicine. We also both work in emergency management. As such, we are both considered in the “high risk” group for both seasonal flu and H1N1. We also have 3 children, ages 17, 12 and 2 who will be considered in the “high risk” group for H1N1.

Because the peak for H1N1 is predicted for October, and the vaccine will be available in limited quantities in mid to late October, I am sincerely concerned about protecting my family.

I’ve attempted research in this area and have come across many essential oils for the prevention of H1N1 – Ravensara, Ravintsara, Cinnamon, Lavendar, Clove, etc., but am not sure the best way to use them to protect my family (diffuser, massage, inhaler,etc.). I have read that rubbing Ravensara on the soles of the feet every morning and evening will afford some protection, but am concerned about using it on the 2 year old and using it long term. I am also not sure of the safest oils to use to protect my 2 year old.

I have purchased Ravensara, Ravintsara, Thyme Linalol, Eucalyptus smithii, and the Flu Foil and Germ Beater blends, but any guidance you could give in their use, use of any additional oils or therapy, and duration of use would be greatly appreciated.

-”Because I suspect others might be pondering the use of Essential Oils to protect themselves and their families against the promised H1N1 epidemic, I thought sharing my comments in public might be appropriate.
……
First… as a health care provider, I’m sure you know that I can neither give advice, nor even suggest that the essential oils we make available could have any possible therapeutic benefits. To do so would leave me open to the FDA charging me with selling “unregistered drugs”…

having said that.

For the two year old I would definitely use the ravINTsara, not ravensara.. What I would do for your whole family (I’ve seen case studies where this was used in schools and the absenteeism rate plummeted)… I’d blend ravintsara into aloe vera gel…as high as a 10% dilution… 5% for the 2 year old, and use that as “hand cream” three times a day.

For the whole family… I would diffuse Flu Foil… or even use inhalers on a regular basis (ie, every hour or so, for you and your hubbie…or between patients.) I’d reserve the Euc Smithii for ‘cold symptoms’… it’s the best decongestant for the little one…and effective for all of you… best by diffusion, or a drop on the pillow case.

I’d use the Germbeater as a room spray, or occasionally diffuse it… keeping in mind that it is truly aimed at bacteria, rather than viruses..virii?? specifically.”

Ravintsara, Ravensara, Palma Rosa, Eucalyptus and Lavender are the oils used in Nature’s Gift FLU FOIL, but you could very well make your own blend by purchasing the separate oils.

And as for the Germbeater blend that includes the following essential oils:

Lemon Myrtle, touched with Tea Tree and Lemon scented Tea Tree, Ravensara for its antiviral potential, Cedarwood, Pine, Lemon Eucalyptus for molds and spores, and the powerfully germ killing Cinnamon Bark. This is not a blend to use on the skin, it will burn, and contains a known sensitizer. It is designed for the diffuser, or to be diluted into a room and countertop spray.

-cont.

“The thyme linalol would be a gentle and safe antibacterial for the little one, as well as the whole family. I suspect that, had you not already purchased it, you might find Thyme Thujanol a bit more effective, but you have the linalol on hand, so I would go with that.

I’d look at alternating the ravensara and ravintsara for the older members of the family…either by diffusion, or, as mentioned, in the Aloe gel… it is my personal belief that it would be a more effective anti viral than the antibacterial soaps you probably use in your practices.

I’d think about diffusing flu foil and germ beater alternately…

and I’d look at using one oil or blend for 3 or 4 days, then alternate with another… ie, perhaps ravensara for 3 days, then flu foil, then back again. I think switching off is better than always using the same oils.

hope some of this helps… you and yours are most definitely on the front lines and more at risk than the general population. GOOD LUCK… and I hope to hear come winter that you all made it through ‘flu season’ unscathed!!!

as you can tell, I’m not much on the theory that the oils should be applied to the soles of the feet OH..and neither cinnamon nor cloves should be used topically. We have them both in our germbeater spice blend… but I’d not use them other than in a room spray or a blend for diffusion.

hope all of this helps.

I would LOVE to post your question and my rambling answer on our blog with your permission…”

This is such good advice. I am a second grade teacher and my principal will not let me use any oils in my classroom. I was hoping to be able to diffuse some blends. He is afraid someone will have a reaction and even if it’s not caused by an essential oil blend a parent might think it is and sue us. So, I can only use them on myself.
I am going to order the Ravintsara Oil. I didn’t realize it was better than the ravensara. Thanks again for your help!
