My husband and I have used this home-made tooth powder for more than half a year. We found it a helpful, healthy and cheap way to protect teeth. This time, I made 6 jars (4 oz each) of powder. Both my husband and I use it two times a day. We use up one jar (4 oz) in about 2 months.
This time, I made 6 jars (4 oz each) of powder.

The original recipe
The original recipe is from Chris of Joybilee Farm. She used home-made powder for more than 10 years and found this recipe is the best. However, I removed the Bentonite clay from her recipe because I have metal filings in my teeth. I also reduce the amounts of essential oils because the original amounts bring smell that is too strong for me.
