Remineralizing Tooth Powder Recipe

I’m really excited to share this recipe with you today!

I did know I didn’t feel beautiful, (my insides or my outsides), that my life didn’t feel beautiful and that what I experienced every day was anything but beautiful. And you know what can happen when you don’t see beauty? Everything starts looking ugly. Even the things that aren’t. And before you know it, the situation snowballs and suddenly your life has become a negative whirlwind and full of anti-beauty and, if you’re anything like I was, you don’t even realize it. Let me explain.
