  1. Angela Salinas says:

    Is this safe to do while breastfeeding? All the ingredients appear to be safe but I wanted to make sure this was a safe alternative to the options provided by the dentist that are not safe to use.

  2. Gina says:

    How often should you brush your teeth with this paste?

  3. Catherine says:

    Use it how??

  4. Lillie says:

    Do you have any recommendations for sensitive teeth? :)

  5. Jennifer says:

    Will this harm enamel?

  6. Maggie says:

    I usually use a combination of coconut oil, baking soda and peppermint essential oil to brush my teeth. Do you see any problem with using that after using this whitening formula?

    • It should be fine, just make sure you only use the teeth whitening formula 3 times max each week and make sure that you have an adequate amount of coconut oil in your toothpaste recipe.

  7. Frank Brown says:

    A Dentist shared that we should not use baking soda because it’s like using sand paper on our teeth. Thoughts?

  8. San says:

    Can regular lemon be used instead of the essential lemon oil?

  9. Lara says:

    Can you also use baking powder?

  10. mbuyiselo .m.tuswa says:

    i like your advises

  11. Nicole says:

    What is the purpose of using strawberry and lemon? How is this different then just brushing your teeth with baking soda?

  12. Mona says:

    Would you name a couple good essential oil companies in US/Canada? It is hard to know which one is good. Thank you so much!

  13. Terry says:

    I’m allergic to strawberries is there another option?

  14. Kathi says:

    Does it matter if the strawberry is fresh or frozen?

  15. Sherry says:

    Where do I buy essential oils that are of high quality?

  16. rena says:

    Is there something else u can use instead of strawberries. Iam allergic. My throat swells up. And I cannot breathe

  17. Lisa says:

    It is no longer strawberry season. Will a thawed frozen strawberry work?

  18. Robin says:

    If we want to make little jars for gifts. what is the amount of time it would last? Does it need to be in the fridge? Do you have a recipe for larger batches?

    • It would ned to be refrigerated. Unfortunately, I don’t know if this recipe would do well in big batches as the strawberries only last so long before going bad.

  19. Lisa says:

    Just read this for the first time & am excited to try the natural whitening formula you recommended. Two quick questions. Can this be used indefinitely? and if substituting juice from real organic lemons for the lemon essential oil and you mentioned “you less of it”, can you recommend a specific number of lemon juice drops to use?
    Thanks for your help!
    A devoted follower of your sage advice :-).
