Treat yourself with nature. Not a simple slogan but a real lifestyle. Far from guaranteeing miraculous cures, plants in fact contain a large number of active ingredients useful for human health and well-being. Aloe, for example, has different properties and is commercially available in the form of creams, ointments, juice, detergents and toothpastes. In fact, it has anti-inflammatory, healing, purifying and soothing qualities and has been known since ancient times when it was used, among other things, to treat wounds suffered by soldiers in war but also to treat diseases of the skin and intestines. The Egyptians considered it the plant of immortality and women had already experienced how precious it was for aesthetic treatments. Even the Greeks seem to know it well and they find evidence even in the Bible. An authentic portent of nature, also known in ancient China and in the Indian tradition, which in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance took root all over the world, reaching the present day. After a period of oblivion the aloe has returned in vogue and has been rediscovered by modern science that has attested its extraordinary therapeutic virtues with laboratory tests. Even the current medicine is therefore taking note of the enormous potential of the active principles of plants for the treatment of many diseases. The aloe toothpaste, in particular, has several interesting aspects that make it suitable for the care of the oral hygiene of the whole family, also associated with substances derived from other vegetables. Just contact your trusted herbalist to find one that fits your case among the many on the market.
A relief for the mouth and gums
There are three main actions carried out by aloe when it is used as a component of toothpaste but also of other products such as mouthwashes. First of all it has a refreshing effect on the entire oral cavity with immediate action even against the annoying problems of bad breath, it is soothing, which is especially useful in case of painful inflammation of the gums which often lead to bleeding and difficulty chewing, and protective mucous membranes. It is a product suitable for oral hygiene for both adults and children as it removes the bacterial microflora responsible for plaque formation in a delicate manner and without the abrasive effect typical of other toothpastes. The aloe juice contained in toothpastes, especially if used pure, therefore not previously subjected to treatments that alter its characteristics, allows to preserve a healthy mouth over time and is recommended and even used in dentistry for the resolution of various problems, including pain reduction and wound healing. It also has a remarkable whitening efficacy, a quality particularly indicated in all those cases in which the enamel has lost its luster and the teeth are yellowed with coffee, tobacco and smoke. On the market it is also possible to find aloe-based products to be applied directly on any inflamed areas of the oral cavity if the lesions are too painful to make it impossible to use the toothbrush.
Aloe and propolis, a winning combination
Not infrequently aloe is found in association with active ingredients derived from other plants, in such a way as to enhance its effects. One of the most classic combinations used in toothpastes is the one with mallow and eucalyptus that have an anti-inflammatory and purifying action and also give the product a pleasant taste. Calendula, associated with aloe vera, results in an increased soothing efficacy on inflamed and reddened gums. Some toothpastes contain aloe, melaleuca oil, which is a natural antiseptic, and horse chestnut extract, with a strengthening action on the gums. Then there is the combination with sage essential oil, one of the most whitening agents, but with an effective refreshing, deodorant, disinfectant and hemostatic action. But one of the most effective combinations of plaque, tartar and halitosis in contrast is certainly that with the mother tincture of propolis, a natural substance derived from the work of bees, endowed with particularly potent antibiotic and antimicrobial properties that make it one of the most precious allies for the oral hygiene of the whole family.
Aloe toothpaste: And there is also DIY
Although buying one already packaged is relatively easier and involves less discomfort, making a toothpaste at home is not so complicated, with the advantage of being able to use natural substances that do not have contraindications. One of the simplest recipes consists, for example, in obtaining some aloe pulp from the leaves of the plant to which to add a few drops of hydrogen peroxide and a little bicarbonate of soda and the game is done: the pasta thus obtained will allow have perfectly clean teeth.
The care of one's body and well-being also passes through a special attention to the health of teeth and gums which, if neglected, can lead to discomfort, pain and difficult chewing, also taking pleasure from a lunch with family or friends. If recourse to the dentist for the usual operations such as cleaning is to be recommended at least once a year, however in daily life it is important to follow some small rules, such as brushing your teeth after each meal, especially in the evening, using dental floss to eliminate food residues and use an effective toothpaste, such as those, now on the market, containing aloe with an anti-inflammatory, decongestant, soothing, antimicrobial effect. A relief for the mouth and gums, a simple gesture to start and end the day in the right way.
