Tooth Powder

Nearly two years ago, I posted instructions for making tooth soap.  Interesting to me is how popular that has been!  As of this morning, it's had 3,667 "hits."  Amazing.

Now I have something new to talk to you about ~ "Tooth Powder."  This is much easier to make and is also more economical. 

I ran across the idea online, of course, and now can't remember where I saw it.  Sigh...  Here it is:

Here is the recipe:  Combine 8 teaspoons food grade bentonite clay, 1 teaspoon sea salt (I used some RealSalt that I have) and...

4 drops peppermint essential oil.  Put it in a little jar and shake it up.

Keep a tight lid on the jar.  When you want to brush, just wet your tooth brush with water and dip the bristles lightly into the tooth powder.  Voila!  I really like it. Don't put too much on your brush.  Only a little is needed and if you get too much, it will feel like it.  You can use more or less essential oil to your liking.  This batch will last for a long time, so you can see that it doesn't cost much at all.

It does an amazingly good job, too.  Now I don't have to make the tooth soap and I don't have to buy the expensive flouride-free toothpaste at the store.
