DIY Tooth Powder

I started using tooth powder a few months ago. I had been looking for an alternative to mainstream toothpaste. Because our family has many health issues, we need to ditch toxic ingredients used in most store bought toothpaste. I had tried homemade tooth paste but didn’t really like all the coconut oil involved. Didn’t want it going down my drains and I didn’t like the way it felt. I still like to use it to oil pull daily but something about brushing with it I just did not appreciate.

Making your own personal hygiene products is easy, usually way cheaper and a great way to take care of your health.



Mainstream toothpaste is toxic because it can contain harmful chemicals:
FluorideCarrageenan,  Triclosan, Trisodium PhosphateArtificial sweetenersPropylene Glycol, Synthetic foaming agents and more.
