Italian Renaissance Sage Tooth Powder

This is Polvere di Salvia (Sage Powder), our 16th Century Italian tooth cleanser and breath freshener. Another perfect addition to your living history kit or your modern organic eco-toilette!

Caterina Sforza, Alessio Piemontese, and Gervase Markham all recorded recipes to freshen the breath and clean the teeth. This recipe was inspired by an English recipe of the late 16th Century to whiten the teeth and freshen the breath. Made with organic ingredients by hand in the La Bella Donna still room.
