herbal tooth powder

we’ve talked about tooth powders and pastes before, but i wanted to get back into DIYing my oral care routine. why? because i really want to try more herbal-based tooth powders, and i couldn’t find one that fit everything i wanted and didn’t want.

please note i am not a dentist or in any way trained professionally in oral care.

what i don’t want in my toothpaste (please do your own research):

  • fluoride
  • SLS / foaming agents
  • glycerin
  • eucalyptus essential oil
  • wintergreen essential oil
  • baking soda
  • artificial colors
  • artificial flavors

what’s in my tooth powder:

  • bentonite clay
    • high mineral content
    • absorbs impurities
  • calcium carbonate
    • helps with remineralization
  • white oak bark
    • supports healthy gum tissue
  • neem bark powder
    • reduces gingivitis
  • peppermint, clove, and oregano essential oils
    • cleansing; targets decay; safe orally in tiny amounts (NOT to ingest)

recipe:

  • 3 tablespoons bentonite clay
  • 1 tablespoon calcium carbonate
  • 1 teaspoon white oak bark powder
  • 1 teaspoon neem bark powder
  • 2 drops peppermint eo
  • 1 drops clove eo
  • 1 drops oregano eo

put dry ingredients into a small airtight glass jar. shake until mixed. add EOs 1 drop at a time, shaking between.
