Angie’s DIY Remineralizing Tooth Powder

Combine the following in a bowl:

  • 10-40 drops Essential oils of your choice (see below) NOTE: Start with less and add more if needed. Oils like cinnamon are very strong and would recommend using less drops if using cinnamon and clove, especially for children. This time I used 40 drops of cinnamon EO and may add more. I started with 20 and kept adding 10 more and whisked well before using again.
  • Borax – 1 tsp (optional)
  • MIX WELL. If you use the essential oils you will need to mix even more to get the oils distributed throughout the powder. A wire whisk works well and then I use something like a spoon with a flat bottom to press the powder to get rid of any lumps. 

How to Use

Pour a small amount onto palm of hand or into a small bathroom cup. I spray my toothbrush with colloidal silver before and after brushing. Use the toothbrush to scoop a good amount of the powder from hand or cup and brush all surfaces of teeth thoroughly. I scoop as much as I can on the toothbrush as it works best as a ‘paste’ so it can polish teeth while cleaning stains.

  • Baking soda – helps remove stains and whiten teeth does not harm tooth enamel. It helps remove plaque. If you are sensitive to baking soda use extra clay.
  • Bentonite Clay – Works like an astringent by helping to remove tartar and clean the gums. As soon as bentonite clay comes in contact with the bacteria and toxins in your mouth, it absorbs them and replaces them with minerals. The abrasive action of clay also removes old stains. According to the International Association of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, brushing with bentonite clay three times per day can even address gingivitis and severe periodontal disease by removing dangerous bacteria and nourishing the teeth and gums with restorative minerals.  

One of the clays I use: StarWest:

  • Natural Salt –  contains minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and potassium, which possess antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Salt helps to neutralize acids in the mouth, balance pH levels, and inhibit the growth of bacteria responsible for plaque and gum disease.The gentle abrasive nature of salt aids in removing surface stains and debris from teeth.
  • Hydroxyapatite – “When hydroxyapatite particles come into contact with the tooth enamel, they release calcium and phosphate ions.2 These ions interact with the minerals in the enamel and saliva, leading to the formation of a new layer of apatite crystals on the tooth surface”.
