Remineralizing tooth powder recipe (Source: wellnessmama.com)

As a proud owner of cavity-free teeth, I'm a little worried that my love for daily coffee may be starting to take a toll on my teeth. I'm noticing signs of slight enamel erosion (which may or may not be caused by coffee) and decided to shop for products to remineralize teeth, and came across this wonderful recipe for homemade "remineralizing tooh powder" on Wellnessmama.com

(Source: http://wellnessmama.com/5252/remineralizing-tooth-powder/)

Ingredients
  • 4 Tablespoons Bentonite Clay
  • 3 Tablespoons Calcium Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Soda (optional)
  • 2 Tablespoons Powdered Mint Leaf (optional, or can use essential oil)- Powder in blender, food processor or coffee grinder.
  • 1 tablespoon Cinnamon Powder (or this kind)
  • 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon of Cloves Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon (or more to taste) Xylitol Powder
  • Essential oils for taste- completely optional but Peppermint, Spearmint and Cinnamon are good.
Instructions
  1. Mix the ingredients in a bowl or pint size mason jar and store in a small glass jar with a lid. We actually have a separate small glass jar for each family member since we dip our toothbrushes in it. Mix with a spoon or shake to incorporate ingredients. This recipe makes about ¾ cup of tooth powder which lasts us for months. You can adjust the recipe up or down (Use teaspoons instead of tablespoons for smaller amounts).
  2. This will last indefinitely on the counter since there are no liquid ingredients and all of the ingredients naturally discourage bacterial growth. You can customize the powder to your taste and all of the herbal ingredients are optional. Bentonite or baking soda would actually work alone or together as a tooth powder, this one just tastes great. You could also add more cloves, mint and cinnamon for an even more concentrated powder. This type of cinnamon has a higher concentration of beneficial oils and tastes sweeter.
How to Use: Wet the toothbrush (I use a Bass brush from OraWellness since it is super gentle on the gums and cleans better) and dip into the powder. I also add a few drops of OraWellness Brushing Blend. Brush using the Bass Brushing Technique until teeth are clean. Rinse with cool water. Can be used daily (or multiple times daily) and is fine for adults and kids.
