A hug for you and Green Toothpaste
Must keep it simple, as the 10 days before Christmas are complex enough. But this post is really for any stress-filled time of year.
If you're feeling hectic- I've got a hug for you and invite you to pass it along.
In Check it Out, the mystery of coconut, tahini and chlorella from the last post is revealed.
Peace to you sister and brother. Have a blessed week, Pohutakawa, Becky
A Hug for You
This is one minute antidote to the tension that precedes Christmas and for some Christmas itself. Give yourself this minute as your gift to life. Then pass it along.

This one got kinda weird but in a good way. Me and my teeth, and now me and my kids teeth, are in conversation. I haven't bought a toothpaste for myself in years- and before you think, YUCK!, I have used mostly coconut oil-based homemade toothpaste. Sometimes adding baking soda.
Recently, I went to learn more about remineralization and the bugs that live in our mouths. This is the recipe I concocted, all alkaline, and funny enough, edible. People on Facebook guessed everything from Face Mask to Egg Laying support for my chooks.
Green toothpaste is not for the faint-hearted, but it does NOT turn your teeth, mouth or lips green. You'll be blown away at how far it spreads when you spit it in the sink, though! It tastes absolutely beautiful, and makes my teeth feel really nice. Costs pennies. Healthy for my body. Let me know if you make it, modify it (of course you will) and what you think.
Green Remineralizing Toothpaste
- 1 tsp organic coconut oil (unfriendly to strep mutants)
- 1 tsp tahini (for body friendly calcium)
- 1 tsp cracked cell chorella (green!) (for vit D needed for calcium)
- 1 tsp powdered calicified seaweed (must be very fine or will be too abrasive- for mineralization)
Here's a link I just ran into, challenging the myths and culture of modern oral hygiene. You know I love that stuff. Ask questions. Wonder.
