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.
