Keep Your Pearly Whites Gleaming - Part 2

As promised, below is a recipe for an easy-to-make natural toothpaste. It is a great alternative to chemical-laden, commercial sweetened toothpaste! It truly freshens your breath plus helps prevent plaque build-up and gum inflammation. This recipe yields approximately 10 applications. All ingredients are available from better health food stores or a "Whole Foods" type market. Enjoy. Homemade Herbal Toothpaste 4 teaspoons baking soda 1 teaspoon finely ground sea salt 1 teaspoon powdered myrrh 1 teaspoon white cosmetic clay 2 tablespoons vegetable glycerin (adds a sweet taste and smooth texture) 10 drops of one of the following essential oils: orange, tea tree (anti-bacterial & healing), anise, fennel, spearmint, or peppermint. If you want to use cinnamon or clove essential oil, use only 5 drops as these flavors are very strong and may possibly irritate the gums. Directions: In a small bowl, thoroughly blend all ingredients until a spreadable paste forms. Store in a small jar in either a cool cabinet or on your bathroom countertop. Dip a dry toothbrush into the mixture and brush normally. Use within 6 months or discard.
