Tooth powder (aka tooth dirt) recipe

Did you know that I actually hate DIY stuff? That might sound strange considering I post a lot of natural DIY recipes that I make all the time. However, when I make something, it has to be super quick, easy-to-make and strictly utilitarian. My DIY criteria is as follows and all three must be met:

  1. It has to be faster to make than to go out and buy
  2. There needs to be slack in the measurements (I loathe taking precise measurements)
  3. A purpose is required (no crafting for the sake of crafting)

Also, I rarely DIY and consider appearances. This post is a perfect example. Check out that tooth powder… or should I say tooth DIRT?! I guess I could have made it look a bit more aesthetically please to encourage others to take the leap ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here are my slack measurements for tooth powder:

  • 4 tbsp bentonite clay
  • 3 tbsp calcium powder
  • 1 tbsp baking soda
  • 2 tbsp activated charcoal
  • essential oils of choice

I gave up fluoride-ladden toothpaste a long time ago. I now alternate between this recipe and a natural toothpaste (the latter for convenience).

I love the irony of this recipe. Using something that looks super dirty to make your mouth clean.

Anyone tried making their own toothpaste before?
