Toothpaste
2 t Raw Coconut OiL 
2 t Baking Soda 
2 t Xylitol or to Taste
6 drops Organic Peppermint OiL
In a smallish plastic or glass tub that has a well fitting lid, mix all the ingredients with a teaspoon. There’s no need to melt the coconut oil first.
Keep on your bathroom shelf like normal toothpaste. Be aware that it will turn to a thick liquid if it’s warm, as coconut oil melts at a low temperature. This won’t affect your toothpaste at all, but you may have to pour the toothpaste on to your toothbrush!
Variations:
Add less baking soda if you are going to use this more than three times a week. It’s slightly abrasive and shouldn’t be brushed on teeth every day.
Replace the baking soda with good raw salt if preferred.
To help remineralise teeth: add calcium/magnesium/silica
Essential oils to add (experiment with doses for your particular issue)
For gingivitis: tea tree, clove, cinnamon, myrrh, thyme, chamomile, peppermint
For receeding gums: oregano, tea tree, peppermint, myrrh, neem
For sensitive teeth: lemon, myrrh, clove, sage
Tooth Health:
As well as switching to a non-fluoride natural toothpaste, you should always brush in-between your teeth. Use one of those little interdental toothbrushes, like a mini pipe cleaner. Flossing also works if you are gappy enough to be able to get it in there.
You can use 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide, ionic silver or a drop of tea tree oil in water as a mouthwash. All are effective at destroying bacteria.
If teeth are in a bad state, then please revise your diet. You will need lots of mineral rich greens, plus vitamins K2, D and A to make a permanent difference.

"I got tired of driving 45 minutes to get an apple that was impregnated with pesticides. LA leads the USA in vacant lots. That’s 20 Central Parks (New York). That’s enough space to plant 725,000,000 tomato plants. I grew up there , I raised my sons there. I refused to be part of this manufactured reality…I manufactured my own reality.

I’m an artist…gardening is my graffiti, I grow my art.

To change a community, you have to change the composition of the soil…we are the soil. You’ll be surprised how kids can be affected by this. It made me ashamed to see people this close to me that were hungry, and it reinforced why I do this.

When asked “aren’t you afraid people are gonna steal your food?”) “Hell no I ain’t afraid, that’s why it’s on the street!!!!!”

"I want people to take it [the food], but at the same time, I want them to take back their health. If kids grow kale, they eat kale!!!! If kids grow tomatoes, they eat tomatoes!!!!” But if none of this is presented to them, they blindly eat whatever the hell you put in front of them." - Ron Finley

————————————————-

Ron Finley is a successful clothing designer and artist from Los Angeles whose life got a little dirtier when he realized something strange about his neighborhood.

He found that South Central, Los Angeles was overwhelmingly filled with “Liquor stores. Fast food. Vacant lots,”but had no great place to get fresh, affordable produce. “People are losing their homes, they’re hungry, they’re unemployed, and this area is so underserved with nutritional food.” Finley was quoted in an article that appeared in the Los Angeles Times.

Since he’d just taken a course on gardening at the Natural History Museum, he decided to put his newfound knowledge to good use and planted a garden in a small strip of grass by his house with the help of his teacher, Florence Nishida and some friends.

Even though Finley used a small plot of land — about 10 feet wide, 150 feet long according to the Los Angeles Times — the city still gave him a citation, which eventually turned into a warrant. His garden, filled with tomatoes, peppers and chard, celery, kale and herbs, had been deemed illegal.
