Well, trust me, this is well worth your time. This is a simple, cost effective way to care for you and your families teeth!
Here are 4 SIMPLE reasons why I stopped using commercial toothpaste years ago and started making my own or buying natural stuff.
1-NON-TOXIC & SAFE
Have you ever looked into what is in your toothpaste? Here is a quick little post that is a great read about what is actually in commercial toothpaste. Makes you think twice about what you put in your mouth two or three times a day!
With just 4 simple ingredients, you can make a batch of tooth powder up for under $2.00.
If you have ever purchased or checked into NATURAL toothpastes, they are not cheap. Worth it if you can’t make your own, but why not Do It Yourself and save money?
Tom’s Natural toothpaste runs around $5.00- $6.00.
Redmond EarthPaste is $7.99 plus shipping. (good product, but make your own for a lot less).
3-QUICK AND VERY EASY TO MAKE
You can whip a batch of this up in only 5 minutes!!!
This makes your teeth feel squeaky clean, like you have just had your teeth cleaned by the dentist.
I posted about this back in 2014, so it has been a while. Well, today I ran out of my tooth powder and decided to while I was whipping up a batch I might as well video it to show you how simple it is. So here it is.
1/3 cup Redmond or Bentonite Clay
What are the benefits of brushing with tooth powder?
2 Tablespoons Baking Soda
The major benefits of brushing with baking soda are its teeth whitening and plaque removal properties, as well as its affordability relative to other commercially available teeth whiteners. Brushing with baking soda removes plaque deposits from teeth that contribute to tooth decay.
I like to use a simple, recycled “better than bullion jar”.
If you have several flavors in the same bathroom, you may want to label them as they will look the same.
You can find this recipe in my Alternative Remedies for the Body, Mind & Spirit Booklet. This booklet is a great collection of tried and tested alternative remedies that really work!
