My Mint tooth powder a non-abrasive all natural toothpaste alternative. It is especially good for those with sensitive gums. It is made with a food grade Bentonite Clay, with added Activated Charcoal and 5:1 Myrhh powder. The Clay and Charcoal help to detoxify and cleanse the mouth. The 5:1 Myrrh extract powder is non abrasive and helps to gently tone the gums. The flavor is from 5:1 Mint extract powder from a blend of mint species including Peppermint and Spearmint. The tooth powder is lightly sweetened with Organic Stevia*. Because of the charcoal ingredient, you do need to take a little extra care to rinse your mouth completely, or there may be a bit of residue. It does rinse very cleanly however and leaves teeth feeling smooth. This formula contains no abrasive baking soda. This tooth powder comes in a food safe tin with just over 2 oz of powder. Do not add water to the container. *Stevia is in the plant family Asteraceae/Compositae, which some people are allergic to. Do not use if you have this allergy, or discontinue use if you feel tingling, swelling or itching after using the tooth powder.
