HomeMade ToothPaste Recipe
Make your own homemade natural tooth powder does a great job of polishing my teeth and leaves my mouth feeling clean and refreshed. It doesn't have that very sweet flavor found in conventional toothpastes.
To make the tooth powder, mix 1/2 cup of baking soda, 1/4 cup of fine sea salt, 1 teaspoon of myrrh powder, which is sold in natural food stores, and 10 drops of peppermint essential oil.
Baking soda whitens teeth; that's why it's included in so many commercial toothpastes. Sea salt polishes your teeth and tightens your gums. Myrrh fights the germs that causen periodontal disease, and peppermint oil refreshes.
Store the mixture in a tightly covered container. (After one month, you'll need to replenish the peppermint oil, which dissipates.)
To use, scoop about 1 teaspoon of the tooth powder into a shallow dish. Wet your toothbrush, dip it into the powder, and then brush your teeth and rinse as usual."
