Homemade Tooth Paste Powder

I found this while rummaging through an old magazine I had. Thought I'd share it.

3 T. oak bark
6 T. comfrey root
3 T. horsetail grass
1 T. lobelia
1 T. cloves
3 T. peppermint
Combine together and brush. I love the idea of having this concoction to use because I don't have the healthiest teeth. I'm hoping this will help.

Interesting recipe. I wonder how it tastes--let me know! I have had luck with plain old baking soda. It really does whiten the teeth. But, also, my son had some small cavities starting and we used a paste of the baking soda and peroxide and got rid of the cavity! I had to let it sit on there for a few minutes before brushing and we did it a couple times a day. I even took a toothpick and scraped out the gunk in the cavity space. I know, kind of yucky, but he did not want to go get it filled and it was a baby tooth, so I felt we had nothing to lose.I think the cavity has to be small for this to work.

I like the *idea* of homemade toothpaste but the practicality of it baffles me. How do you keep it from getting yucky, wet, moldy? That recipes looks flavorful. Let me know how you like it.

So foundational. It really does set the stage for life long character. Something they do not get by going to public school.

Oops, I see I made my comment on the wrong post. Should be, as I'm sure you've figured out by now is the one on teaching children. lol
