5 Natural Remedies For Gum Disease That Beat Store Bought Toothpaste And Mouthwash!

First let me give you the symptoms so you'll know what you're up against. The very first symptoms everyone could notice are the red, swollen gums, known as gingivitis in medical terms. These symptoms can be noticed when you brush or floss your teeth, as the swollen and sensitive gums may start to bleed. Another symptom is the bad taste when you are eating, or the bad breath. You can also experience different kinds of pain, pain while chewing a gum and even losing a tooth.

Here are the Causes

Many foods we eat are loaded with sugar and they encourage the growth of bacteria in your mouth. The poor dental hygiene allows all the bacteria in the mouth, and in this way, leads to gum disease. If you don’t apply proper brushing, the ‘bad’ bacteria will cause inflammation, which can lead to erosion of the bone in your jaw in case it’s left untreated.

There are also many other factors than dental hygiene that lead to gum diseases. Many examples, such as hormonal changes during puberty, pregnancy or menopause show that the gum sensitivity can be increased during these periods. On the other way, the gum disease can be inclined genetically, but with the right treatment of your teeth, you can avoid it. Smoking and high blood sugar can also cause gum disease by damaging gum tissue and weakening the immune system respectively.

Home remedies have been used through centuries for healing any disease, including gum disease. You can avoid using the store bough toothpaste by applying these remedies everyday:


Sage leafs are the best medicines for any infective disease, for its anti-inflammatory and cleansing properties. A fresh sage leaf mixed in sea salt and rubbed on the infected area can cleanse and relieve you from the disease in very few days.


A turmeric powder combined with warm water has antimicrobial and antioxidant properties. Applied to your teeth by brushing them with a soft toothbrush can cleanse the wound and heal it in a short period of time.

Salt water

If you are experiencing any of the above mentioned symptoms, you can use the salt water to cleanse the infected area. Sea salt mixed in warm water will kill all the bacteria if swished around your mouth for a minute or two every day.

Baking soda

It has been known for a very long time that baking soda is the best and the simplest solution for the gum disease. Instead of toothpaste, you can brush your teeth with soda paste combined with olive oil. If you have infected gums, combine soda with water and swish it around your mouth for a few minutes, two to three times a week.

Oil Pulling

Before the toothpaste, people used a technique called oil pulling to protect their teeth from diseases. Follow these steps to cleanse infected areas using oil:

Put sesame and coconut oil in a tablespoon.
Swish it around your moth for a couple of minutes.
Spit out and rinse with warm water
Repeat this process for a few days
Ozonated Olive Oil

All of the above mentioned treatments can treat the inflamed gum, but in some cases, we may not get the results we expect. A powerful treatment, such as ozonated olive oil is needed in these cases. Olive oil is full of vitamins and in combination with ozone can heal the wound very fast without any side effects. According to researchers, patients that use ozonated oil healed faster than the patients using store bought toothpaste. Want to know how to apply it? Follow these steps:

Brush your teeth with a soft toothbrush and non-fluoride toothpaste.
Floss each side of the tooth to remove plaque and debris
Massage the gums with ozonated olive oil for 10 minutes
You can additionally brush your teeth with ozonated olive oil

How to Keep Spiders Out of Your Home

The very thought of seeing a spider on my carpet, or climbing up my wall, or lurking in my bath tub sends shivers down my spine. It’s fair to say I don’t like spiders – but I know they can be very beneficial so I don’t want to kill them!

Which is why this article is so great. It reveals nine fantastic natural ways to repel spiders and keep them out of your home without harming them and without harming your family with the use of chemical sprays.

Let’s be completely honest. Nobody REALLY likes spiders. Even if they are completely harmless little things, nobody really wants spiders hanging around inside their house. But, how do you repel them naturally without hurting them, and without exposing your family to any potentially harmful chemicals?

Read on for the answers you are looking for!

Mint Them Out
Did you know that spiders HATE peppermint? Most people don’t! An easy way to keep spiders from invading your space is to fill a spray bottle with peppermint essential oil and water, and then spray it around your home. Plus, your home will smell great!!

Clean It Up
The cheapest and most organic way to repel spiders naturally is probably not the easiest! Keeping your home neat, tidy and free of dust or webs is the best way to keep spiders from moving in. Regular vacuuming, dusting, and de-cluttering will keep any insects from making themselves at home!

Use Vinegar
White vinegar has about five trillion uses around the house (look it up!), and repelling spiders is one of them! Repelling spiders with vinegar is much like repelling them with peppermint oil, in that you fill a spray bottle with vinegar and water, and spray all the cracks and crevices around your home.

Enlist The Help Of A Furry Friend
Cats are a great spider deterrent! Four legged furry friends can be great hunters and will definitely not let a spider crawl across the floor without going on the prowl and taking care of business!

Don’t Let Them In
A great way to keep spiders out of your home is to never let them in in the first place! Make sure the exterior of your home is free from leaves, grass clippings, wood piles, or any other notorious spider hangouts. You can also check all door openings and windowsills to make sure there isn’t room for spiders to get in that way,and apply caulk when needed.

Citrus Does The Trick
It’s common knowledge that spiders hate all things citrus. Rubbing citrus peels on areas where spiders are known to frequent, like baseboards, windowsills and bookshelves, is a great way to keep them from coming around. Even using lemon scented furniture polish can drive spiders away!

Let Cedar Do The Work
Cedar can be a great deterrent for spiders. You can use cedar mulch outside around the perimeter of your home to try to keep spiders from ever getting inside. If you have access to a cedar chest or cedar hangers to use in your closet, that is a good choice as well. Using cedar blocks or shavings inside closets, cupboards or drawers can make them think twice about hanging out in there too!

Yes, you read that right, chestnuts! They have been known to drive away spiders, so placing a few in your windowsills or along your baseboards can keep spiders from hanging out there. Many people also believe that the same thing can be done with an osage orange (also known as a hedgeapple) You can keep chestnuts and hedgeapples in the house for a long time before they go bad, so it’s worth giving it a shot!

It sounds weird, but spiders hate tobacco just about as much as they hate lemons and chestnuts! You can sprinkle small pieces of tobacco where spiders are troublesome, or you can soak tobacco in water and then spray the mixture all around. However, tobacco is pretty expensive these days, so you can likely find a more affordable fix for keeping spiders at bay!

Cancer research is a failure

Over $250 billion dollars has been spent on cancer research and you have a better chance of getting cancer than you did 50 years ago and when science was not as advanced. Doesn't make sense to me. But the majority of the population don't even question it due to ignorance.

Natural Activated Charcoal Facial Cleanser Recipe

Natural Activated Charcoal Facial Cleanser Recipe


.5 oz. cocoa butter
.25 oz. shea butter
3.5 oz. organic liquid castile soap
1 teaspoon liquid soy lecithin
2 ml rosehip seed oil
15 drops birch tar essential oil
15 drops rose absolute blend
5 drops non-GMO vitamin E
5 drops rosemary extract
1 teaspoon activated charcoal powder

To create this activated charcoal facial cleanser recipe you’ll begin by using a digital kitchen scale to weigh out the cocoa and shea butters. Melt in either a double boiler or at reduced power in a glass Pyrex Prepware Measuring Cup. Then using a measuring spoon, measure out the soy lechtin and stir into the melted butters until it is thoroughly combined.

Next, weigh out the organic castile soap (Mountain Rose Herbs carries a good one or you can use Dr. Bronner’s Unscented Baby Mild Castile Liquid Soap) and gently stir into the butters and soy lecithin. Now measure out the rosehip seed oil using a Plastic Transfer Pipettesor a glass dropper and stir in. Follow with the essential oils, vitamin E and rosemary extract using a clean dropper for each ingredient.
Finally measure out the activated charcoal powder and whisk into the cleanser. Then using a funnel, pour the facial cleanser into one 4 oz. amber glass bottle with a lotion pump – or use small 1 oz. or 2 oz. amber bottles with screw tops or glass droppers for travel friendly facial cleansers – and allow to cool completely. It will thicken some as it cools.
