Herbal Tooth Powder


Myrrh powder is added to this recipe to help prevent periodontal disease. Baking soda, an ingredient in many commercial products, lessens the mouth’s acidity. Rasberry leaf is good for the gums and mildly astringent. Tea tree oil is effective against gingivitis and plaque buildup; the yellow dock is cleansing.


* 1/2 cup Baking Soda
* 1/2 cup Clay powder
* 1 teaspoon Myrrh powder
* 1 teaspoon dried Raspberry leaf
* 1 teaspoon dried Yellow Dock root
