We are hearing more and more about the benefits of turmeric.
This is a spice which is commonly used in Indian cuisine. It has anti-inflammatory properties that people have been praising for years now. There’s another surprising benefit that turmeric has that more and more people are talking about nowadays. It actually has to do with treating gingivitis!
There was a study published by the Journal of Indian Society of Periodontology which showed that turmeric could possibly be more effective than traditional mouthwash for treating gingivitis. This is welcome news, as mouthwash can contain ingredients that many feel is too harsh and could have other side effects with regular use. An effective, all natural method is obviously much more preferred. Check this out:
Here’s the ingredients you will need:
1tbsp of coconut oil
0.5-1tsp (2 capsules) of turmeric powder
a bit of peppermint oil
Here’s how to use the paste:
Wet your tooth brush and dip it in the mixture. Brush your teeth as you would normally and then let it sit for 3-5 minutes.
Spit out the mixture and rinse.
Continue this routine daily for several days until you get the desired results.
