Someone asked me if they could mix their Dirty Mouth™ Toothpowder with coconut oil. My answer is no… and yes.
If you want to mix coconut oil into your toothpowder, it’s probably because you probably want to create a paste. You’re used to the way toothpaste feels and works, and you want to replicate that. The paste you mix up won’t harm you, yet it will dilute the mineral rich toothpowder.
If you’re adding coconut oil to get similar benefits of oil pulling, there’s really no need. Dirty Mouth™ Toothpowder is a mixture of three clays — and charcoal if you get the black version — that act very similar to oil pulling. Oil pulling helps detoxify, clean and whiten your teeth. Our toothpowder does the same thing. The clays are very porous. So they pull debris and toxins from your teeth and gums into the clay.
The clays also contain the minerals your teeth need to remineralize and become stronger. Those minerals must come into direct contact with your teeth, either through the foods you eat or the toothpowder you use. Unfortunately, our soil is very depleted of its minerals, so not much comes from food. And you can’t take supplements — your teeth can’t extract minerals from the bloodstream.
Again, the minerals have to come in direct contact with your teeth. If you mix the toothpowder with coconut oil, you’re diluting the concentration of minerals. This lessons their chance of absorption.
So here’s my answer… Yes, you can mix coconut oil with Dirty Mouth™ Toothpowder. However, you don’t have to! You’ll get all the detoxifying and whitening benefits of oil pulling by using Dirty Mouth™ Toothpowder by itself. And, you’ll remineralize and strengthen your teeth while you’re at it.
