What is your morning routine like? Everyone has a slightly different one, even if they live together or are related. We all like to approach the day from a different angle, having done things in a different order or just ignoring some things altogether. Some people will go for a run before breakfast, and some will not even have breakfast at all. Some like to read their emails, some a newspaper. Whatever your morning routine is, we would assume that at some point in that routine you brush your teeth with a great toothpaste that does you a lot of good – but for most people, that simply isn’t true.
What many people do not realise is that the toothpaste that they use day in, day out, is actually really harmful. That is because manufacturers of toothpaste do not tell their customers that they use harmful ingredients such as propylene glycol, which is an active ingredient in antifreeze, or triclosan, which is scientifically classed as a pesticide. You would not normally want to go anywhere near these two chemicals, and yet both of them can be found in most toothpastes in your local store. It is disgusting, and slightly frightening, but that is the truth of the matter.
Perhaps it is time to change your morning routine. Making your own toothpaste at home is a really easy and relaxing thing to do, and you can even do it in the evening whilst watching the television. The large batch you make, the longer it will last for you, and many people find that they can make their own toothpaste and it will last weeks. With only five ingredients, and all of them completely natural, it is a wonder that more people are not introducing a natural, safe, homemade toothpaste into their morning routine.
