Our mouths are very complex, important parts of our bodies, and they are constantly taking a beating from all the food and beverages we force into them. Even though they are strong and pretty much clean themselves, it is important to give them a thorough clean and sterilization. Bactria flourishes in conditions like the ones created in our mouths and causes tooth decay, bad breath and other health problems. Brushing every day is not always enough to keep the bad bacteria out, this is where this DIY antibacterial toothpaste comes in!
An all natural toothpaste that not only fights bad breath and bacteria, but also whitens and prevents decay!
