Dear DIYers, herbalists, etc....
How many of you have tried different recipes of making tooth paste/powder? Well, I have and I think I may have found the one I like. (I enjoy trying out new recipes for fun and you never know if you'll like one better than the other.) I recently decided after I saw Neem powder at the health food store that I would try that in my tooth powder. I recommend only putting a tiny amount since it is bitter. For now, I have just baking soda and Neem plus spearmint and a little bit of Stevia. My plan though is to add a little bit of bentonite clay( supposed to remineralize your teeth), powdered Myrrh gum, and clove essential oil to it. I might powder some Sage that I grew last summer in the garden and add to it, as well. Sage is supposed to whiten teeth. Of course, naturally our teeth are supposed to be slightly off white not yellow or bright white. Oh, and Neem twigs is what they used in India to brush their teeth with at one time. I will include a link to the benefits of Neem and clove essential oil.
I think this book would be worth buying: http://www.beeyoutiful.com/the-complete-book-of-essential-oils-aromatherapy.html
