Inspired by Better Basics for the Home, by Annie B. Bond (Three Rivers Press, 1999).

If you drink coffee or tea, or eat certain foods, chances are your teeth are stained and discolored. But commercial tooth-whitening strips are full of chemicals. Try this simple formula instead: it will help you get your teeth pearly white again. It also has Antibacterial properties and a gentle abrasive action to make your teeth feel squeaky clean.

Here is the wise and simple formula for whiter, brighter teeth:

  • 2 tablespoons dried Sage leaves
  • 2 tablespoons sea salt

Preheat oven to 250F. Using a spice grinder or a mortar and pestle, grind the salt and Sage together. Spread mixture evenly on a baking Sheet and bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Allow to cool, then stir to blend.

Scoop some of the mixture onto your toothbrush and brush vigorously. Rinse thoroughly.

If the mixture seems a bit dry to you, add some more water.

Natural Breath Fresheners

Lavender Sweet Breath Lozenges

These sweet Lavender pastilles were once most fashionable among ladies as a breath freshener after indulging in a little wine. A few drops of essential oil of Lavender were added to well sieved powdered sugar and mixed thoroughly. It was then bound with sufficient lightly beaten egg white to form a stiff paste, and small portions shaped into lozenge shaped pastilles. These were then set aside to dry and harden in a warm place.

While these pastilles were an emergency social measure, a mouthwash made from an infusion of Sage leaves was much favored for everyday use, as was Sage toothpaste.
