No more chemicals!
I am a firm believer- we can do it naturally!
Oral health included.
Do you remember what they say when we get piercings?
Rinse with a saline solution x2 daily.
Why? Salt is a simple disinfectant that nourishes our skin and doesn't really disrupt the natural pH, microbiome or natural oils.
A simple recipe I use >
Make a saline solution: take quality salt or chunks of quality salt and let it soak in previously boiled water to dissolve to make a solution. You want this solution to be extremely salty, like too salty to consume.
Grab a bottle- like the bottle shown in the picture at the top of this post and fill most of the way with the saline solution.
Next, add unpasteurized apple cider vinegar. This will contain enzymes, bacteria, the nutrients from apples.
I like to add about a 1/5 ratio ACV and 4/5 saline solution- especially add less for people who do not like sour tastes- you have to warm them up to it.
Shake and gargle before bed & in the morning after you brush / floss your teeth.
Disclaimer: unpasteurized apple cider vinegar is not the same as white vinegar. They are not the same pH and they do not react the same in the body. If you have sensitive skin I would stick to unpasteurized apple cider vinegar- unless you are allergic to apples!
Diet is the most important part.
