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.

Yield: 
1/2 cup, approximately 2 months supply for one person

Ingredients: 
  • 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
Instructions: 
  1. Mix all ingredients together well. Store in an airtight container.
  2. 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.
  3. Scrub gently. There are some powerful abrasive agents in the tooth powder that will do most of the work. Fine to eat.
