Baking soda is a wonderful non abrasive cleaning cleaner... It is safer for your enamel than many comercial toothpastes. I have been making my own toothpaste blend for 6 years... I mix 2 Tbs. Baking soda, 2 Tbs. Peelu powder (can be found online or in heathfood stores, often in bulk... Plant based, nonabrasive, with properties conducive to good oral health) 2 tsp pink sea salt, and 1 Tbs. Eco-Dent floride free/flavor free all natural foaming tooth powder.

When I first started I had bad receeding gums and my mouth was not in verry good shape, so I add 2 drops of myhrr oil to my toothbrush in the evenings. The problems cleared up within the first 2 months of using this mixture, and by the end of the first year I could see that I had regrown gum... My teeth are a lot whiter too.

I use baking soda in this way: take your toothbrush and dip a little in 3% peroxide, soap the toothbrush using unscented bar soap and finally, touch some salt mixed with baking soda. This protocol was written by some holistic dentists. This procedure takes a few seconds but the results are very good. (You also can add one drop of evergreen oil or mint oil on top of salt and soda.)

I crush about a cup of peppermint leaves with a mortar and pestle. I then put about a cup of baking soda in a short wide-mouth jar. Then I add the peppermint leaves, put the lid on and shake. You can keep it in the bathroom and when it's time to brush, just pour a little out into your hand or a small paper cup and dip your wet toothbrush into the mixture. Your mouth not only feels clean but the peppermint is really refreshing.

I keep oral hygiene in good standing by doing the following: First, I put about a Tablespoon of Baking Soda in my mouth, then put some water (preferrably filtered), and swish it around as a mouthwash. I then put wet my toothbrush, add some baking soda, pour on my toothpaste, and brush my teeth. After I'm done brushing, I repeat the earlier Baking Soda mouthwash. It has kept me satisfied as far.
