Here is an easy homemade recipe to use for brushing your teeth. It is inexpensive and has no fluoride..
Ã‚Â¼ to 1/3 cup baking soda
Ã‚Â½ tsp. To 2 tsp. Myrrh Ã‚â€“ this is an acquired taste. I would really recommend that you start out with a very small amount and increase as you get use to itsÃ‚â€™ taste (remember the name means Ã‚â€œbitterÃ‚â€) But this is what gives your tooth powder itsÃ‚â€™ disinfectant, antiseptic properties.
3 to 5 drops of peppermint essential oil
1 to 2 drops Anise essential oil Ã‚â€“ both of these can be adjusted to fit your own tastes. Some of my kids prefer it to have more peppermint taste, but some love the Anise taste (somewhat licorice )
Dash of salt Ã‚â€“ I use RealSalt or sea salt
Mix all ingredients together and store in a covered container (I use a Rubbermaid plastic container) in the bathroom.
When I make toothpowder I just mix things together without measuring. I will attempt to give you approx. measuring amounts so you can play around with it and see what suits your tastes.
