I found this ad for this all natural toothpaste and thought…I gotta try making my own! This sounds great!!
“Do you ever wish your toothpaste magically healed your teeth?
Me too. When my daughter was 2, she had a defective molar. The dentists said the tooth would last six months to a year.
I went home and started doing research on dental health and what teeth are made of.
I discovered your tooth enamel is made up of many different minerals. Over time your teeth can lose these minerals reducing the strength of your enamel. I found that brushing with a blend of 3 organic natural clays, you can get these minerals to absorb into your enamel.
Over time these minerals will begin to strengthen, and remineralize your teeth. All by having her brush with specific minerals, she was able to SAVE that molar.
Dirty Mouth Toothpowder was created to save my daughters teeth. When it worked, I realized I could help a lot of other people out.” -via Primal Life Organics.
This was an ad for selling their products, which sound great!! And probably are. But wouldn’t you love to make them yourself for much less $$$?
I’ve been making my own products for years and believe me, it’s not that difficult, and much less complicated than you think.
Plus it can save a LOT of money.
And who doesn’t like saving money???
Their Toothpowder Ingredients :
Bentonite clay, kaolin clay, French green clay, baking soda, and essential oils or flavorings of either peppermint, spearmint, clove bud etc…
I like add coconut oil and activated charcoal (I know, what?) to mine to make a paste instead of a powder. By adding a little activated charcoal, it not only detoxifies, but really does whiten those choppers and actually pulls toxins, and super cleans your whole mouth. But if you want to use a powder only, just dip your brush in coconut oil before starting.
Some like to use charcoal separately because of the black color. But if you don’t mind it, the properties are truly whitening magic.
ALSO their BOOST serum is great too. It’s a big part of total dental health.
Their mix of essential oils contains numerous properties beneficial for dental heath, including:
here’s a list of their ingredients in the gum serum :
INGREDIENTS: Extra Virgin Olive Oil*, Tea Tree Oil*, Peppermint Oil*, Spearmint Oil*, Lemon Oil*, Eucalyptus Oil*, Clove Bud Oil*, Lavender Oil*, Myrrh Oil*, Cinnamon Oil*, Chamomile Oil*, Cypress Oil*
Tea Tree Oil is antimicrobial & anti-inflammatory. Tea Tree Oil can be a powerful dental pain killer and should help kill infective microorganisms (likely even those involved in tooth decay and gum disease).
Peppermint Oil is analgesic, anesthetic (topical), antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, antimicrobial, antiseptic, antispasmodic, astringent. Helps fight mouth infections, gum disease and bad breath.
Spearmint Oil is analgesic, anesthetic, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, astringent.
Lemon Oil is stimulating, calming, anti-infection, detoxifying, antiseptic, disinfectant, anti-fungal, astringent etc. Enhances gum tissue.
Cypress Oil is astringent, antiseptic, hemostatic (stops bleeding gums), vasoconstrictor, etc.
Eucalyptus Oil is anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antibacterial. It helps relieve periodontal disease.
Lavender Oil enhances blood circulation and tissue formation
Myrrh Oil is anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, astringent. It can be an effective means to ensure good oral hygiene and help heal mouth sores.
Cinnamon Oil is analgesic, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic.
Chamomile Oil is antiseptic, antibiotic, analgesic, bactericidal, anti-inflammatory, anti-infectious. It enhances tissue formation.
Clove Bud Oil is antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiseptic, antiviral, natural fungicide. It acts as a powerful disinfectant and local anesthetic for toothaches, sore gums and mouth ulcers. Clove Oil contains the compound eugenol, which has been used in dentistry since numerous years. The characteristic smell of Clove Oil helps in removing bad breath. Clove is also effective against cavities.
Those are all wonderful, but of course I have to change it up a bit, so I add Frankincense and Helichrysum Italicum essential oils to my recipe for extra healing properties. Even better for those dealing with periodontal disease.
On with the recipes!!!
6 oz size approx.
- Approx 1 oz ea. of : Bentonite, kaolin and french green clays
- 2.5 – 3 oz baking soda
- 10 to 20 drops essential oil of your choice:
- Clove bud
- flavoring of your choice, but it’s not needed with all the minty goodness included
To make the powder an actual toothpaste add 2 – 4 oz coconut oil ( +/- to desired consistency )
Stir well and add to sterilized container.
To make this excellent mouthwash you’ll need:
4 oz. sterilized bottle/ add all ingredients and shake well before each use
- approx 3 oz distilled water
- about 15-20 drops of the magical tooth and gum serum (recipe below)
- approx 2 tbl colloidal silver
- approx 1 tbl aloe vera juice or liquid
- approx 1 tbl hydrogen peroxide
I love this mouthwash. It works so well and really makes your mouth feel super clean.
I like to use it before and after I brush but it’s a personal choice. Then I follow up with the serum for a long lasting fresh that lasts all day (well, until lunch, then I have to use it again lol).
Dont forget to floss!!! Can you just hear your dentist saying that!? lol.
