What Is This?
In the good old days most people used powder to brush their teeth, not paste! Paste is very hard to make, transport, and store at scale because it separates or dries out easily. Modern society has "solved" this issue by adding all kinds of weird chemicals which are not good for you. Many toothpastes even have poison warnings in case you swallow! Toothpowder on the other hand has been used for centuries at the least. There are many types of powders, but based on our personal testing over many years, calcium carbonate is the best base for toothpowder. It is also known as limestone or chalk. It comes from the squished, fossilized skeletons of microscopic plankton. Cool! See Wikipedia for more.
The Numbers
Each bottle costs $25.00 USD (with FREE shipping in the United States), weighs about 1 pound, and will give you about 300 brushings. The recipe is 1 cup of calcium carbonate, half a teaspoon of sea salt, and 80 drops of essential oil.
How To Use It?
Simply pour a small pinch into your palm, scoop the powder up with a wet toothbrush, and brush like normal. With some toothbrushes it's easier to scoop with the side of the brush. With others you can scoop directly with the top.
The Competition
Don't like what you see? Then check out the competition! There are many other brands so here's just the calcium carbonate-based ones here. They're all about the same price but have many different ingredients if that's your style.
What Toothbrush Is The Best?
We recommend the natural boar bristle brushes made by Fuchs Toothbrushes. These are easily the best toothbrushes on the market. If you want to get a little more hardcore then look into Miswak sticks as well.
Why This Bottle Type?
We decided on Boston Rounds after evaluating many different container types, including those of our competition, swing-top bottles, test tubes, lab glassware, bamboo, and things we won't even mention. Boston Rounds won. They are the most natural, hygeniec, ergonomic way we have found for storing and dispensing toothpowder.
How To Make It?
  1. Put 1 cup of calcium carbonate into a wide-mouth jar or bowl.
  2. Add half a teaspoon of fine sea salt.
  3. Pour 80 drops of essential oil all around the surface of the powder.
  4. Use a whisk to blend the powder thoroughly.
  5. Transfer the powder to a bottle using a funnel.
  6. The funnel may get easily clogged so use a dowel or pencil to push the powder through.
