How much more natural can you get than brushing your teeth with salt from the sea?
It’s easy, too: just dab your toothbrush in sea salt and brush away as usual.
This has got to be one of the most popular natural toothpaste alternatives.
Like sea salt, you can just dip your toothbrush in baking soda and brush like normal. Or you can dissolve it in water first and use the brine for brushing (just like the sea salt).
A lot of people use baking soda as a base for homemade tooth powder. You mix it with a few drops of peppermint essential oil and stevia to give your mouth a minty fresh feel.
Hydrogen peroxide is known for keeping teeth clean and white, and many people use it instead of toothpaste.
Jessica on Facebook suggests, “Dip your toothbrush in hydrogen peroxide and then in a 50/50 mixture of baking soda and fine sea salt.”
The only potential problem with hydrogen peroxide is if you have amalgam fillings: peroxide may leach mercury from your fillings.
Herbal Tooth Powders
Herbal tooth powders can be used in place of toothpaste.
They do a good job of cleaning, and the herbal ingredients can also help ease inflammation, pain and infection throughout the mouth.
