My All Natural Tooth Powder Recipe

Awhile back, I posted my minty fresh homemade toothpaste recipe. While I still use it and think it’s fantastic, I will admit that in the summer it’s hard to use. The coconut oil melts and is very hard to use.  So I came up with a new recipe not involving glycerin or coconut oil.  It’s much easier, works just as well, and won’t melt on you.  It’s actually tooth powder.

Here’s how you make it:

6 teaspoons baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt (I used all natural sea salt and ground it in my coffee grinder)

10 drops peppermint oil (start out with 5 first and then increase if you want)

Put it in a small container you can shake before using.  I wet my toothbrush, dip it in, scoop just a little on there, and brush.  The mint is so yummy!  If you don’t like mint, you can substitute cinnamon essential oil or something else.  It works really well, and I’m glad I gave it a try!  Here are some other awesome uses for baking soda.

Have you ever made your own toothpaste?

    I have tried just baking soda, as well as a mixture of baking soda & sea salt. My soda & salt mix was mostly salt though with a little soda added (it’s the mix I use to make my own saline nasal spray). I didn’t grind the sea salt finely though, so I didn’t care for the way that mixture felt on my teeth. I can see how if the sea salt was finely grounded, it would much nicer on the teeth. Great idea to add a little mint oil, maybe even try a little homemade vanilla extract (vanilla bean soaked/infused in vodka)

    OOh! homemade vanilla extract sounds so good! I’ll have to give that a try. I think I want to try that or cinnamon next!

    I like how the baking soda gives the added bonus as a tooth whitener. I’m going to give this power a try!

    I don’t have much enamel due to a childhood illness—therefore I don’t do frugal toothpaste—I need the fluoride. My husband showed me a good frugal trick with a toothpaste tube that I thought was fairly ingenious: Cut the bottom of the tube open when you think you’ve squeezed all you can out of it. I find I can get about three other brushings accomplished using this little trick. Fun!

    I do use baking soda and peroxide once or twice a month, just to make my toothpaste go a bit further, and to be kind to my gums. It is helpful.

    I would speak to your dentist about the recipe, to be on the safe side.
    It sounds good—but you may be suprised at the abrasive qualities of some ingredients, and it may do your teeth more harm than good.

    I was concerned about the baking soda being too abrasive too! That was the reason I ground up the salt. It is not frugal for me to ruin my teeth and need dentures! ;)
