This natural toothpaste was inspired from my watching my mother brush her teeth when I was little. She grew up on a farm in central Nebraska in the 30's, and so they used what they had. We have added only a few things to her original toothpaste.
We use Sea Salt which is cleansing, antibacterial, and healing. The Baking Soda is both cleansing and whitening. The peppermint is for a little taste. The Tea Tree is cleansing, antibacterial, and antiviral.
There is no Fluoride (but you don't need it because the Sea Salt does the same thing naturally). No Silica's which whiten your teeth by sanding the enamel off. No chemical sweeteners to make it taste good and preserve the toothpaste.
Xylitol is a natural sugar derived from the Birch tree. It is sugar but the body doesn't recognize it as such. The beauty of it is that the bacteria that produce plaque (S. mutans.) feed on it as a sugar and actually starve to death, producing a less acidic environment. Thus your mouth is less prone to decay and plaque build up.
Very little is required (about ½ a peas worth), so it will last a long time.
It will leave your teeth feeling cleaner than they ever have. That is what our customers have told us.
We will warn you that it will make you drool a bit (because it is salty, not sweet), but that is good.
Rinse your mouth out lightly and you will get the added benefit of the salt and tea tree healing your gum's, and aid in killing the bacteria or plaque that causes bad breath.
If separation occurs, simply stir it up. We think that once you have tried it you won't want to go back to the old stuff. This peppermint toothpaste truly is simply the best!
Great for the whole family!
