DIY Natural Toothpaste (Removes Stains) + Before/After


I drink a blueberry smoothie every morning and that has it's effect on my teeth. And it's not that I want super shiny white teeth, I just don't want them to be stained and blueish for a while after drinking a smoothie. Well, my mom started researching (and nothing can stop her when she does that, haha) and a friend of hers recommended this and it works so well it has actually removed the yellow layer on my teeth, the stains + it takes care of the blue from smoothies! 

But why not just use regular toothpaste? 

I have not used regular toothpaste for a long time because they give me headaches because of the fluoruide - I have tried a fluoride free toothpaste and there were no headaches which was great. So why not fluoride free toothpaste? Using that didn't remove the stains on my teeth and just like with everything else I also just wanted a natural alternative. 

I started using coconut oil, sometimes water only, and while it made my teeth super smooth they were still very receptive to the blueberries. So instead I use this which I absolutely love! Here is what you are going to need and and do to make this toothpaste... well more like tooth powder: 

You will need: 
- 4 tbsp green clay (don't use metal tools with clay) - You can also use Redmond bentonite clay 
- 2 tbsp dried mint leaves (pulverized in a coffee grinder, between your fingers or use a knife)
- 1 tbsp kelp meal (danish link: get it here)
- 1/4 tsp ground cloves
- 2 tsp ceylon cinnamon

What you will do: 
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and store it in a little glass jar. Then when you want to use it pour some of the powder into your hand, wet your toothbrush then dip the brush in the powder and you are ready to brush your teeth!
And just like regular toothpastes do not swallow this (because of the clay) but spit it out. I like to brush afterwards with some water. 

Here is the before picture where I used regular toothpaste and then the after picture with this powder: 

Would you ever try a natural toothpaste?
