Mineralizing Tooth Powder
Tooth powder was popular years ago, before toothpaste came into fashion. I was skeptical, but my mouth and teeth have never felt better. Activated charcoal whitens teeth and can be added to the powder or kept separate. Some rinse with ½ teaspoon of charcoal mixed in water after brushing, holding the mixture in front of their teeth for a few minutes before rinsing.

- 4 Tablespoons bentonite clay
- 4 tablespoons calcium carbonate powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda (leave out if you have metal braces)
- 1 teaspoon of fine sea salt
- 2 teaspoons yellow mustard seed powder, optional
- 1 Tablespoon of cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon of ground cloves
- 1 Tablespoon activated charcoal, optional - for whitening
- Mix all ingredients together well. Store in an airtight container.
- To use, tip a little into the palm of your hand and smush your toothbrush into it. Some add a drop of colloidal silver (another antibacterial), or a drop of peppermint oil here to make a paste.
- Scrub gently. There are some powerful abrasive agents in the tooth powder that will do most of the work. Fine to eat.
