My remineralizing toothpaste is one of my most popular posts, and I've gotten many emails from happy users. After my husband and I reversed cavities, I switched to natural toothpastes and a healthy diet.

My homemade toothpaste can leave a residue on sinks and the coconut oil can cause septic system problems (as we do).

This tooth powder contains bentonite clay, which I love. Alkaline and full of minerals, it binds to and draws out heavy metals and toxins (great for the mouth).

Remineralizing Tooth Powder Recipe Make a homemade tooth powder, rather than a paste, with bentonite clay, calcium powder, baking soda, xylitol, and herbs and spices.

Materials – 2 TBSP dried mint leaf (or a few drops peppermint essential oil, optional) – ¼ cup bentonite clay – 3 TBSP calcium carbonate powder – 1 TBSP baking soda (optional) – 1 TBSP cinnamon – 1-3 tsp ground cloves – 1 TBSP xylitol powder (or more to taste) – essential oils

Instructions – If using, mint leaf, powder in a blender, food processor, or coffee grinder. –Mix all the ingredients in a bowl or pint size mason jar and store in a small glass jar with a lid.

– To use, wet the toothbrush, dip into the powder, brush, and rinse.

Since there are no liquid ingredients, this will last indefinitely on the counter. All herbal ingredients in the powder are optional.
