It is very important to take care of your oral hygiene!! There are so many toothpastes available in the market. I have been using popular brands in the market for 30 years. If you look at the ingredients of the toothpaste in that some of the chemical ingredients are extremely harmful, they contain artificial colors and preservatives and An alternative for toothpaste is a toothpowder which prepared at home easily, I prepare it once in 6 months and store it in a glass bottle. I am using this tooth powder from almost 1 year. It is extremely good, no toothache, no bleeding gums, there no tooth sensitivity.
Cost of making, very cheap compared to the commercial toothpaste available in the market: 20rs for 5 gms of edible camphor
Preparation time: 30 mins once in 6 months
Take 200gms of rice husks into the pan, fry it on a medium flame slowly until it turns into the light brown colour powder, filter the powder with food stainer.
Take 100gms of rice husk powder, mix 5 gms of edible camphor powder.
Take this into a glass jar and store it.
