Make homemade tooth powder as an alternative to commercial toothpastes that contain synthetic chemicals and unhealthy sweeteners. I was pleasantly surprised by the results when I made this homemade tooth powder recipe.

The ingredients are inexpensive, it took less than a minute to put together, and I have enough to last me a long time. Best of all, though, I love how it makes my teeth feel- truly clean.

  • 2 parts baking soda 
  • 1 part high quality, all natural salt (such as is Celtic salt or Himalayan salt). Make sure to use a finely ground (not coarse) salt so that it does not damage your enamel)
  • If you'd like, flavor the powder with a ½ tsp. of cinnamon or a drop or two of peppermint or spearmint essential oil. 

  • For toothpaste blend the ingredients listed above, plus several tablespoons of vegetable glycerin or liquified coconut oil. Add the liquid slowly and mix well until you get the consistency you desire. 

To use the tooth powder, wet your toothbrush and dip it in the mixture. If it tastes too salty, add a bit more baking soda. Brush as usual and you will see how smooth and healthy your teeth feel! 

Note: Some people find baking soda to be too abrasive, so start slowly.
Store your tooth powder or toothpaste in an airtight container in your bathroom. It lasts indefinitely.
