I read somewhere that you can combine coconut oil and baking soda too..haven't have the guts to do it yet.
I will keep you guys inform about it.
Indeed, you can do that and it works wonderfully.
2 weeks ago i have a very bag dental infection.I couldn't sleep for 2 night because of a strong pain. My Dentists make an x-ray and they saw an infection. I was wondered when they say that its a chronic infection but its happening to me for the first time. The infection was above the teeth roots , very high in the gums. Their solution was to make a surgery but in few days in have calm down.
I`, thinking to get a coconut oil and mix it with some salt and baking soda and add few drops of essential oils inside and start to wash my teeth with that. As soon as i get the coconut oil i`ll try this mixture for a tooth wash. It cant be bad.
