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 🙂
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 the 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!
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. 🙂
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! 😀
How to make Xylitol Mouthwash:
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.
