Easily ditch the chemicals and save a ton of money with this whitening tooth powder recipe.
I stopped using regular toothpastes years ago.
WHITENING TOOTH POWDER RECIPE
4 Tablespoons of bentonite clay (The clay is an important part of remineralizing teeth. Don’t skip it!)
1 teaspoon of baking soda (If you are sensitive, this ingredient is optional.)
1 teaspoon of fine sea salt
1/2 teaspoon of clove powder (This will strengthen your gums and teeth, and prevent toothaches.)
1 teaspoon of powdered peppermint (Tastes yummy!)
1 teaspoon of stevia (unrefined) (To sweeten it up just a tad.)
3/4 teaspoon of activated charcoal (the whitening ingredient) You’ll want to uncap the capsules and use the powder inside. Or grind up the disks of charcoal to add to your powder. Or if you grab powdered, you are just smart that way. =)
Measure the ingredients out into a small container that seals, mix, and you are ready to use!
(I pre-rinse my mouth with coconut oil also.) Coconut oil is great for the gums, kills bacteria, and nourishes hard to reach places.
To make a paste, just add the powder to coconut oil and brush like you would with store bought toothpaste.
