Yields1 ServingPrep Time5 mins

I have found that this works amazingly well and leaves my breath fresh and minty, and most importantly, my teeth clean! Just make sure to rinse your mouth out well when you're done! Oh, and don't forget to floss.

 2 tbsp bentonite clay
 4 tbsp water
 15 drops peppermint essential oil
 ½ tsp baking soda
 ¼ tsp activated charcoal (optional)

Put dry ingredients and add water slowly until your desired paste consistency forms. Add essential oils and mix well.

Note: Be sure the clay does not come into contact with metal. Use glass containers and wooden or plastic to mix.
