Homemade Peppermint Tooth Powder

I’ve got a really big toothy smile. And I keep that toothy smile bright and healthy with twice a day flossing and brushing with budget friendly homemade tooth powder.

The tooth powder that I make up in my kitchen doesn’t use bentonite clay or any type of exotic spice or resin. It’s simply cheapo baking soda mixed with peppermint oil.

The way I make tooth powder is pretty simple.
I put plain old-fashion inexpensive baking soda in a small Mason jar. Next I add about 10 – 15 drops of peppermint oil and stir thoroughly with a fork. That’s it.

To use the tooth powder I first wet my toothbrush. Next I dip the brush into the tooth powder and shake off the excess, then brush my teeth.
It’s not a particularly posh or luxurious personal care product, but homemade tooth powder sure lasts a long time and is easy on the pocket-book.

    Baking soda is an abrasive – hence its cleaning power. Using it on your teeth will wear away the protective enamel.
