Did you know you can make your own toothpaste?! And it is pretty easy. I opted for a tooth powder because I didn’t know what to expect the first time making it. It took more time researching which recipe to use. I don’t know why, but my recipes always end up a combination of several recipes with the ingredients I resonate with.
These are the recipes that I based my tooth powder off of:
The recipe I used for my tooth powder was what I had on hand. I had a ton of dried Mint and Sage from the garden. I put some into the dry container of the VitaMix. Next time I will let it run longer to get a finer powder. That is the only thing I don’t like about this recipe is all the green herbs pieces left on my teeth! Good thing I have a water pick.
I also learned that 1/4 Bentonite Clay is one full bottle of Premier Research Labs Medi-Clay. That was a lot of capsules to open by hand! If I would have had Activated Charcoal, that would have been added to the recipe.
- 2 Tbsp dried Mint
- 1/4 C Bentonite Clay (Medi-Clay)
- 3 Tbsp Calcium Carbonate (Coral Legend Plus)
- 1 Tbsp Baking Soda
- 1 Tbsp Cinnamon
- 1 tsp Sage
- 1 Tbsp Xylitol
- 1 tsp Medi-Detox Pack
Mix all ingredients together and store in a sealed container. I put about a 1/4 tsp of the tooth powder in a small dish and a just enough water to wet the ingredients and mix into a paste. I like it! I’ll use this recipe to make more when I run out.
