About the Class: In this course, you’ll learn which herbs and other natural ingredients support tooth and gum health, and make tooth powder and toothpaste to take home. We will work with ingredients such as powdered herbs, including antimicrobial, astringent and activating herbs, salts, clays, essential oils, glycerine and other curious and effective natural ingredients, with tasty results. You will learn several ways to turn a basic homemade tooth powder into a delicious toothpaste and take home many recipes but also be able to craft your own combination.
