2 parts white oak bark herb
1 part myrrh gum herb power or granules
3/4 part Peppermint leaves converted to powder
½ part anise herb power or seeds
1/8 part clove - powder
If herbs and leaves are not
in powder form, grind them in a coffee grinder. Use this formula
to make as much powder as you want.
Place the mixture into a small
container. I usually use a small unused vitamin bottle.
I usually mix a small amount
and use a tablespoon as my measuring tool. For example, 2 tablespoons
of white oak, 1 tablespoon of myrrh gum, ¾ tablespoon
of peppermint leaves, and so on. The measurements do not have
to be so precise.
How to use it:
To control bacteria in your
mouth, use this power once a week. If you have gingivitis, you
can use this 3 times a day. Place some powder on your toothbrush
and brush your teeth and gums. After brushing spit out, a few
times, the saliva and residue powder. Don't rinse out your mouth
since you want to keep the active herb powders in your mouth.
You can swallow any that remains in your mouth with no problem.
This powder combination is bitter,
but quite powerful and will get the job done. You can add more
peppermint powder to make it less bitter, if you like.
For severe cases of gingivitis
and toothaches, you can also moist some powder with distilled
water and then place the paste all along the your teeth and gums
front and back. Leave the paste in your mouth as long
as you can. Don't worry about the herbs getting in between your
teeth. This remedy works.
My wife was scheduled for a
root canal last year and a few weeks before her tooth started
paining and couldn't sleep. So I made this remedy. She just placed
the powers around the painful area. It wasn't long before the
pain stopped and she was able to go to sleep.
There have been other clients
that have used this remedy for a month and successfully avoided
having the dentist apply gingivitis treatment. In cases of severe
gingivitis, go see your dentist and at the same time use this
