    Ayurvedic Toothpowder

    Today we had a great day at our Ayurvedic workshop where our participants learned about Ayurvedic body cleansing and rejuvenation. We discussed the classical Panchakarma procedures as well as home detox options.

    An important part is practicing a daily routine (Dinacharya).

    We talked about daily routines like tongue cleaning, oil pulling, oil massages (abhyanga)....... and the usage of tooth powder.

    It was so popular that we needed to prepare a new fresh batch of homemade toothpowder ?

    Ayurveda recommends using herbs with a bitter and astringent taste for oral hygiene, as they are naturally anti-bacterial and anti-fungal in nature.

    The first step was grinding Yasthimadhu into a powder with the help of Tamda Kharal (mortar and pestel).

    Our toothpowder contains herbs and spices ? such as triphala, licorice, clove, neem, guduchi, jatiphala, turmeric, cinnamon and more. These herbs are coarsely ground and many of which we use in daily cooking.

    ? To start, first put the toothpowder on your finger. The powder is best applied with the finger to feel our teeth and gums, increasing our bodily awareness.

    ? Next rub the powder into your teeth and gums.

    ? Leave it for a few minutes.

    ? Finish by rinsing your mouth with warm water.

    If you swallow a little of the powder don’t worry ? its absolutely fine.

    Toothpowder is helpful in treating:

    1. Receding gums.

    2. Gingivitis.

    3. Bad breath.

    4. Gum inflammation.

    5. Mouth ulcers.

    6. Gum sores.

    7. Tooth whitening.

    8. Improves taste perception.

    9. Enhances overall oral health.

    If you have any questions about the toothpowder, you’re welcome to message us directly or call/text 0406 810 547. The powder is available in our online shop. We hope you enjoy and we wish you a beautiful weekend.

    With love your Lakshmi team xx
