Homemade Toothpowder

If you are on the lookout for brushing your teeth with some natural ingredients and herbs, then neem twigs, Tulsi (Basil) powder, babool bark, dried orange peel powder are all good. Our ancestors who used these had strong teeth and they could chomp chikoos and sugarcane with equal ease.

For a change if you would like to make your own toothpowder, then you here’s a simple recipe which I got to know from a naturopath. Try this if you can procure the ingredients.

Ingredients:

Tulsi (Basil) leaves powder-2 tbsp
Neem leaves powder-2 tbsp
Saindhav salt-2 tbsp
Jatamansi-2 tbsp
Ashes (Bhasma) of almond shells – 2 tbsp
Roasted betelnut powder – 2 tbsp
Cardamom (Elaichi) powder- 2 tsp

Method:

Grind all these to powder which is slightly coarse. Use this powder to brush your teeth in the morning and at night before you retire to bed. If you want you may also use it after every meal. This is supposed to help with disorders of teeth, including pyhorrhea.
