If you ever look at ingredients that are in commercial toothpastes, you will find that there are ingredients you can’t pronounce or that are unfamiliar. Some of the ingredients, like glycerin, actually coat your teeth and prevent your teeth from naturally remineralizing. Wouldn’t you like to control what is in your toothpaste?
The nice thing about this recipe is that you can customize your tooth powder to your needs. If you have sensitive teeth, then reduce or eliminate the baking soda and sea salt. If you want a whitening tooth powder, add the activated charcoal (but please note, this will make the tooth powder gray or black).
If you would rather have a paste than a powder, you can always add coconut oil and distilled water until you get the consistency you like.
Note: Bentonite clay, activated charcoal, and stevia powder can all be found online or at a local health food store.
