Toothpaste and Mouthwash DIY (Salicylate Free)

DIY salicylate free toothpaste powder!

Want to try saving a couple $$ on toothpaste and mouthwash? try making your own!

Milk of magnesia is supposed to be excellent for teeth and rebuilding enamel and even whitening. Haven’t tried it yet but totally going to!

Instructions for Toothpaste:

Stir equal parts Baking soda, salt and Xylitol (Excellent for teeth and gums). You want to grind your Xylitol and salt to a powder for this πŸ™‚

I have heard people say they have re-built their enamel with this concoction, not sure how I believe THAT, but I do know that my teeth have never felt nicer than when I was using it!

Try my recipe inspired by Keeper of the Home. But make sure to NOT use boiling water, totally molded in 3 days! had to toss the whole works! AND skip all the essential oils and sals. Use my recipe below:

Aug 8 2014 My Clay toothpaste:

1/4 cup bentonite clay

1 Tbsp baking Soda

3 Tbsp xylitol (ground to powder using coffee grinder)

1/4 tsp seasalt (ground to powder using coffee grinder)

carefully stir above together and keep in jar with tight lid.

scoop 1 Tbsp dry ingredients with 1/2 tsp Trace Minerals oil and 1/2 tsp emu oil. carefully stir together. That lasted me about 10 days. πŸ™‚

Update: I used this in the place of toothpaste for a while but preferred it without the oils. Plus, so much easier to not have to stir in the oils πŸ˜€ Simply wet your toothbrush and dip in the powder. easy peasy!

Here’s an easy Mouthwash: Half water, half hydrogen peroxide. there’s no flavor and it dosn’t go rancid, and totally helps your teeth and gums, not to mention helps to whiten! πŸ˜€

How to make XylitolMouthwash:

Remember to get flavoring agents that are not natural essential oils(get imitation types)Or skip flavors

Instructions for mouth wash:

Use three cups of distilled water. Distilled water is preferable to ordinary tap water because it does not contain any impurities.

Add 1 teaspoon Xylitol (more or less to taste) and stir to dissolve completely.

Add flavoring agent for taste.

Pour the xylitol mouthwash into a bottle and cap tightly. Use it as often as you like as a healthy refreshing mouthwash. Store the unused portion in a cool location.

    Christine, I am so sorry, but all of the numbers from Dr. Armand’s website are so old I am getting wrong numbers and cannot find these people. The only doctor in KY or In is not doing the treatment, only workers comp. What do suggest?

    Thank you so much for this wonderful Website!

    I just started the Guai protocol. I have not seen any doctor nor I have been medically diagnosed with fibromyalgia. However, I have been suffering with pain for the past 13 years. All the symptoms of Fibromyalgia are in my body. I have been doing the Guai protocol for 1 week after reading Dr. St. Amand’s book and Website. I have felt worse and sometimes pain free. I stopped using all salycilate products. In general, I feel better and most of all, hopeful. Do you know of any doctor familiar with and advocating for the Guai protocol in Florida? I live in South Florida – Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton areas- but would travel to northern parts of Florida to see a doctor. Thanks! B

      and btw Betty, if you are feeling better instead of worse, you still need to find your clearing dose! Remember in the book it says to start at 300mg twice a day for one week and if you notice no INCREASE in symptoms, then to go up to 600mg twice a day for a full month πŸ™‚

      What brand of guai are you taking?

      • Betty says:


        Thank you for your prompt reply!

        I started with 400mg twice a day of quick release Guai Walmart brand “Equate.” With this dose I felt almost no pain. I even felt better, especially during the day. Now I am taking 600mg of extended release Guai, same brand, and I am in pain most of the time. It is very uncomfortable. I hope this is my clearing dose. How long did it take you to be pain free once you found your clearing dose?


      • Christine says:

        Thanks Betty for filling in those gaps for me πŸ™‚

        So, the 400mg is a Fast Acting guaifenesin. It is going to hit your system hard and then stop working long before your next dose. You MAY be a low doser. I would suggest going off all the guaifenesin for a week and then starting with 300mg twice a day for one week, this will establish if you are a low doser. Low dosers feel pretty crummy pretty fast.

        Then, if no increase in symptoms after a week, go up to 600mg twice a day. And stay there for a full month. Keep using your symptoms journal religiously, it’s your lifeline to finding your clearing dose! πŸ™‚

        Doing the protocol this way, you can be sure you dont take too HIGH a dose and give yourself more unnecessary pain. You will be much more likely to stick with it πŸ™‚

        Are you in our Fibro Buddies group yet? We have great discussion and help there too πŸ™‚ here’s the link:
