Basic Tooth Powder


Great tasting tooth powder that freshens breath, remineralizes teeth and promotes healthy gums. Free of fluoride, SLS and harsh abrasives.



Basic Tooth Powder

Everything old is new again! Tooth powder has been making a comeback as more and more people realize how many not-so-great ingredients are in commercial products, even those bought in a health food store. Our mouth has a permeable membrane that readily absorbs things into the blood stream. Our teeth are made of a porous surface as well! Because of this we should be mindful of everything we put on, near or in our mouths. Our Basic Tooth Powder contains ingredients that are not only safe for your mouth, but are even GOOD for your teeth and gums. This product is safe for the kiddos too!

Simple Apothecary’s Basic Tooth Powder contains minimal sweetener. It may take a few uses for you to get used to an all-natural tooth powder. Stick with it though and you will be rewarded with fresh breath, clean teeth and healthy gums!

All Simple Apothecary products are hand crafted with healing intentions in small batches. No synthetic emulsifiers are used, so natural separation may occur in higher temperatures- simply stir the product before use. No synthetic preservatives are used, so natural spoilage will occur over time. Please use within 6 months of opening. Refrigeration in warmer temperatures may help prevent spoilage.

Simple Apothecary is a small, family-owned business. All products are handcrafted in small batches, with care taken to ensure each jar is made to exacting standards and set with healing intentions. As such, we do not make large amounts of any product at one time. This occasionally means there are small delays in order fulfillment- we genuinely appreciate your patience AND your business!

Dip a barely dampened toothbrush into the tooth powder before brushing as you normally would. After brushing, swish the liquid in your mouth for one  minute before spitting.

The Back Story

Rebecca Finn, owner of Simple Apothecary, created this recipe after stumbling across an article on making your own tooth powder. She had already learned about the harmful side-effects of chemicals such as sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), fluoride and propylene glycol, and had started using commercial alternatives from the natural food store. However, she then learned some of those ingredients weren’t so great either! Glycerin can be sourced naturally and can be a great addition to products such as hand lotion. In toothpaste though glycerin coats your teeth and won’t allow remineralization.

This tooth powder recipe had to create an alkaline environment that facilitated remineralization, helped prevent tooth decay and left the user with a fresh mouth. Bingo! This is a very mildly-abrasive tooth powder that freshens breath, promotes healthy gums, AND helps keep your teeth clean and remineralized.
