This homemade tooth powder is very easy to make! I have not used products containing fluoride and/or aluminum for many decades, not wanting to be continuously poisoned. Guess what? No cavities, gum issues and all the rest! No, I am not a professional nor dentist. I am presenting the recipe I use which is cheap to make and great if things “go south”. My great-grandparents and grandparents made one similar, sans the optional additions. We found the blend of essential oils I use for flavoring to be very good, though they look not to be on the surface.
Note! I use human-grade ingredients! I also get gmo-free/ge-free and organically produced. Your mouth can absorb a lot of things quickly. I’ve cleansed many toxins from my body. I DO have naturally on-the-yellow-side of cream-colored teeth. I was born yellow, though not jaundiced. My skin-tone is yellow. Dyeing my hair red makes my teeth appear whiter. I am not doing that, especially since it is over 2-feet long again. laughing… I found I have no stains on the backs of my teeth any more since I started using this. I am a coffee and tea drinker, too. I occasionally brush my teeth in the morning with this and use a Ayurvedic toothpaste at night to change things up. Please note my disclaimer at the bottom.
Tooth Powder Recipe
1/4 cup baking soda
2 tsp fine salt
1 tsp ginger, powdered or ground
1 tsp clove, powdered or ground
1/2 tsp cinnamon, powdered or ground
Optional or if you have on-hand:
1/4 tsp activated charcoal powder or 1 capsule
1 tbsp human-grade kaolin or fine white clay
1 tbsp calcium carbonate
10 drops peppermint essential oil
12 drops cinnamon essential oil
Put all of the ingredients, except the essential oils if using, into a small processor. Add any of the optional powders if you want to add those too. I found the clay really helps cleanse my teeth well and the activated charcoal deodorizes and slightly brightens my teeth without damaging them. I have not used it with the calcium carbonate long enough to see it strengthen my teeth. I can no longer find it locally as of late.
Cover the top with a paper towel and hold it in place before pulsing the powders together. Trust me here. Forget to do this once, and you will never do so again. Wait for the dust to settle before opening the lid. Note– You can also grind it all together in a mortar and pestle, or just blend well.
Add the essential oils, if using, cover with the paper towel and pulse until the oils are cut in well. You may need to take a scrapper to knock off the oil if tiny clumps appear on the side. It is not common, but it can happen. Let the dust settle and empty into an 8 oz. jar. I use a brush to get all of the powder out and a canning funnel to keep spills from occurring. Keep covered with a plastic lid.
Wet toothbrush, knocking off the extra moisture. Dip the brush into the powder and brush your teeth normally. You do NOT need a huge amount mounded on the toothbrush.
After I am done, I swish it around in my mouth before washing my mouth out.
