It’s only too logical–the mouth is the gateway to the body. Not only is it the entryway for our fuel, but it’s also a primary means for bacteria to build and lead to infection. As such, your mouth can reveal much about the health of our bodies, in more ways than one. Taking good care of it through proper dental hygiene is a must. Take your dental care up a notch or several with this simple DIY Neem toothpaste, starring our ORGANIC INDIA Neem supplement, which is 100% organic, non-GMO, vegan and cultivated by way of regenerative agriculture and fair-trade practices.
Traditionally used to support oral hygiene, skin, and immune health, Neem contains detoxifying properties that help protect the gums and mouth. This simple paste couldn’t be easier to make; just mix one teaspoon each of baking soda and our ORGANIC INDIA Neem powder with enough water to form a paste. We like to add a drop of essential peppermint oil essence, too, for a touch of minty freshness.
Don’t be put off by the color. You’ll rinse it right off, and your body will enjoy the potent benefits. Neem is even known to freshen breath! All in all, Neem is a breath of fresh air.
