I don’t use traditional toothpaste with fluoride and preservatives. When I used traditional toothpaste, my dentist was getting rich on my dental bills. Since I started making my own remineralizing and whitening toothpaste, my teeth are healthier. The whitening part is new now that I added activated charcoal to my powder. I tried brushing with just the activated charcoal but that was just a mess. Now it is part of my tooth powder and my teeth are getting whiter.
- 3 tbsp Calcium Carbonate powder
- 2 tbsp Bentonite Clay
- 4 tbsp Baking Soda
- 2 tbsp Activated Charcoal
- 4 tbsp Pink Himalayan Salt
- 1 tsp Peppermint Essential Oil
Mix all ingredients in a glass mason jar. Don’t use any metal with the betonite clay because it will react with the metal. You don’t want that. You want it to react to heavy metals in your mouth!
If the powder gets clumpy, I just shake it up in the jar. Let it settle before opening the lid since the charcoal can create a messy cloud.
Before I brush, I use organic refined coconut oil for oil pulling. I make “pucks” in a silicon candy mold by pouring melted coconut oil in each mold and let them harden. Then I store them in a container. It is so easy to grab one before stepping in the shower and oil pull while in the shower. Just before I am finished, I spit and rinse.
To use the remineralizing and whitening toothpaste powder, you wet your brush and tap gently to knock off the excess water. Your brush bristles only need to be damp. Take your brush and dip the tip of the bristles in the powder. Put the lid back on to keep it airtight. Brush your teeth as you normally do. Don’t forget to floss!
If you want a paste, just add organic refined coconut oil to get the texture you want. And if your children are going to use it, leave out the essential oil.
So oil pull, brush, and floss. Pretty easy for good dental health. I am due for a cleaning and feel pretty confident it will be better than the past. My teeth feel great. I wish I had taken before and after photos when I started the remineralizing and whitening toothpaste powder.
