Forget that toothpaste you buy from Crest and Colgate! Manufactured toothpastes are loaded with toxic chemicals and additives that are harmful to your body in so many ways. Ingredients like triclosan, fluoride, sodium lauryl sulfate, and artificial sweeteners can be as bad as known carcinogens. No one needs that! There are many effective alternatives for dental hygiene like the miswak stick and this homemade natural toothpaste! It’s safe for your whole family, even for grandma and your toddler.
