Homemade Spearmint Tooth Powder
This easy to make home tooth powder makes my teeth feel very clean, white and polished! This is a modified recipe from my first peppermint tooth powder with the addition now of bentonite clay and xylitol. I love to continually perfect new recipes and the previous tooth powder clean well, but tended to be very salty and gritty. This this one now, is very minty and sweet and I look forward to brushing. Take all ingredients and blend them until the power is very fine, like flour and there should be little risk to enamel or gums. This recipe if used 1x a week, should last about 1/2 a year! Store in a glass container or covered container.
- 1/2 c. Bentonite Clay 1 part
- 1/2 c. Baking Soda 1 part
- 1/4 c. Himalayan Sea Salt 1/2 part
- 2 T Xylitol Stevia or Monkfruit Sugar
- 2 tsp. of Spearmint Essential Oil
Take all ingredients and blend in a blender until very, very fine, stir and blend again. Make sure that the sea salt is no longer course, it should look like course flour.
When you use it, first pour a little Hydrogen Peroxide onto your toothbrush to wet, then dip in powder and brush, brush the tongue too.
Use 1x/week as a polish and antibacterial cleanse to compliment regular daily paste brushing.
