7. Coconut Oil

You probably already use coconut oil in your cooking, and maybe you use it on your skin and hair, but did you know that this oil has super antibacterial and antimicrobial compounds that make it the perfect ingredient for oil pulling, brushing your teeth, and the reversal of gingivitis? It’s as easy as rubbing some virgin coconut oil on your gums three times a day and before you go to bed at night. For killing germs and improving your oral hygiene, virgin coconut oil cannot be beat!


8. Raw Organic Honey

What a sweet way to deal with gingivitis! Honey has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial compounds which can help to fight gum disease. Put some raw, organic honey on your fingertips and rub in on the infected areas.


9. Ginger/Chamomile/Cinnamon Tea

Chamomile helps to soothe inflammation and ginger is a well-known anti-inflammatory. Cinnamon has powerful antibacterial compounds which have been shown to treat infections. You can make a super strong tea using one teabag each of chamomile, cinnamon, and ginger. When the tea cools, use this mixture to rinse your mouth for one minute, two or three times each day.

    You read all these websites on how wonderful aloe vera is and you can’t get hold of any that you can be sure is decent stuff. I just want a pure gel as obtained straight from the plant or, if it has been processed, a guarantee that it has not been processed in such a way as to compromise its effectiveness, as many processing techniques destroy or at least greatly reduce effectiveness – obviously I want that, otherwise there’s no point in using it. The problem is they don’t put the information you need in the product description or on the label – either that or the information given is ambiguous or deceptive. Actually I’m not particularly keen on gels mixed with a load of chemical additives either. I don’t see why it should be so difficult to get pure gel, just gel that has not been messed with or chemically adulterated but there you are. I spent all last evening searching online before finally having to admit defeat. I even thought of trying to grow my own but the climate isn’t suitable here in the UK.
