After many, many requests to make a kid-friendly, remineralizing toothpaste for kids, I have this kid-tested recipe ready for you all! My DIY Remineralizing Toothpaste has been a hit and I'm so glad that you all love it. However, I agree that it is not kid-friendly. It's paste-y and chunky when you get it in your month and kids have so many texture issues. So, I've created a tooth powder recipe from it and my kids love it. I know yours will too!
This is a great recipe to use if you are doing the Cure Tooth Decay protocol to heal any existing cavities naturally. And, yes, eliminating your cavities is 100% possible. I am proof! I eliminated 6 cavities naturally with proper diet and nutrition. Both my remineralizing recipes contain ZERO xylitol. Xylitol is NOT safe for you if you are trying to remineralize your teeth. It's really hard to find a xylitol-free, glycerin-free, and fluoride-free toothpaste recipe, so I really hope you enjoy this one!
DIY Remineralizing Tooth Powder for Kids
- 1/4 cup of Bentonite Clay (where to buy) – this comes from pure sources of undisturbed deposits in the ground. What is special about bentonite clay is that it draws toxins out of the body.
- 1 1/2 Teaspoons of Cinnamon (where to buy) – cinnamon is antibacterial, kids love it, and it helps discourage bacterial growth in the mouth.
- 1 1/2 Teaspoons of Stevia herb (where to buy) – this is the dry herb that is green and unprocessed in it’s natural form.
- 1/4 Teaspoon of Real Salt or Himalayan Salt (where to buy) – real salt is unrefined and full of natural minerals.
- 6 Drops of Peppermint Essential Oil (where to buy) – this gives the toothpaste a great flavor and helps to freshen breath
- 4 Drops of a Protective Essential Oil (where to buy) – this blend is full of antibiotic properties and is known for eliminating germs (or cavities)! CLICK here to learn more about what brand I recommend
- Mix all the ingredients, except the essential oils, in a bowl.
- Add the drops of essential oil directly to the top of the powder mixture.
- Grab a fork and mix the clumps of essential oil into the powder. You may need to use your fingers to mash the clumps together and break them apart.
- Store in a bowl with a lid. ***do not use a metal bowl like the one in the pic. Bentonite clay pulls toxins and metal is a big no-no. I only used this container to make the picture prettier, but don't do this! ***
- Wet your child's toothbrush and dip the tip of the toothbrush into the powder. You don't want too much. A little goes a long way.
- Then brush the powder into your child's gums and teeth.
- This recipe is great for adults too!
- This powder can be used to rub on gums to promote good oral health throughout the day.
- You may want to make separate bowls for each child.
- Kids have texture issues, so don't use too much powder at one time. I find that I need to make sure the powder is wet before I give the toothbrush to my kids.
- Only use quality essential oils.
