BENEFITS OF ESSENTIAL OILS FOR TEETH
Essential oils by nature are antibacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral to varying degrees. Unlike manufactured antibiotics, bacteria cannot develop a resistance to essential oils, which makes them the most effective agents for total mouth cleansing.
When you use oils, you are cleansing gums, breath, and teeth with ingredients that naturally clean rather than chemically clean. In the long run, this leads to a stronger mouth - and body - as you are only absorbing nature's goodness rather than chemicals and preservatives.
Frankincense: In Middle Eastern countries, frankincense has been chewed for thousands of years to strengthen teeth and refresh the mouth. It is common for Arabian people to chew the resin in their mouths. Frankincense has been shown to contain antibacterial and antifungal properties, as well as antiseptic and disinfectant properties, all of which inhibit the growth of bacteria responsible for tooth decay, gum disease, and foul breath.* The boswellic acids found in frankincense have been shown to soothe inflamed gums and support gum health.* Our Frankincense comes from Somaliland where they grow the highest quality gum trees.
Coconut Oil: Studies have shown that the natural antibacterial properties of coconut oil are particularly effective at inhibiting the bacteria responsible for tooth decay.* By alkalinizing the mouth, coconut oil transforms the mouth into an unfriendly habitat for further bacterial growth.* It is the acidic environment in the mouth that is largely responsible for the weakening of tooth enamel through demineralization.
Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda): Baking soda has long been known to whiten and brighten teeth. It also acts as a mild abrasive, gently removing plaque from the teeth. Like coconut oil, baking soda also has antibacterial properties and it contributes to an alkaline environment in the mouth, which halts the growth of harmful bacteria.
Saponified Olive Oil: Saponified olive oil is organic virgin olive oil that has been treated with a highly alkaline base which causes a chemical reaction that turns the oil into a soap-like substance which can easily be washed off. Olive oil, when combined with an abrasive such as baking soda, can increase the scrubbing action of the abrasive, leading to even cleaner teeth and gums. It contains vitamin E, which kills the bacteria responsible for gingivitis and bad breath, and it is very effective for removing tartar buildup.*
Myrrh: Myrrh contains antiseptic, antimicrobial, and astringent properties. It works as a gum tissue stimulant, supporting healthy circulation in the gums.* The terpenoids in myrrh are extremely toxic to the bacteria and yeasts that can lurk in the mouth and cause bad breath.* Myrrh also soothes swollen and diseased gums, supporting healthy circulation and reduction of gum disease.*
Peppermint: Peppermint is a powerful aid to digestion and provides a soothing, cooling effect to the mouth. This is real peppermint, not the simulated peppermint found in most toothpaste which is artificial menthol. Real peppermint is a potent antioxidant which inhibits the bacteria that cause gingivitis and tooth decay.* The cooling effects of peppermint also promote circulation to the gums, which further reduces the risk of gingivitis.* Our peppermint is a genuine distillation of the fresh leaves and comes from a fourth generation family of distillers in France.
Thyme Vulgaris Linalool: This rare, gentle herbal ingredient acts as a whole-mouth toning agent. It is a gentle ingredient with powerful antiseptic properties. It acts to balance the oral salivary secretions, stimulate a healthy immune response, and even works as a decongestant.* Plus, it has antibacterial agents. All of these properties provide a boost to overall oral health and fight bad breath.*
Tea Tree Oil: This powerful oil, steam distilled in Australia, contains antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties, including cineol and propanol.* Both cineol and propanol have long been known to therapeutically aid in the reversal of chronic gingivitis and periodontitis.* They also help to reduce plaque.* Tea tree has powerful astringent and antiseptic properties, as well, promoting healthy gums and pleasant breath.*
MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane): MSM is a sulfur compound which contains the soothing, muscle-relaxing and pain-relieving effects of bioactive sulfur.* MSM is a powerful ingredient known to reduce swelling of the gums and reduce pain associated with toothaches and gingivitis. Even in advanced cases of gingivitis and periodontitis, MSM has been shown to reduce and even sometimes reverse these severe and painful conditions.* MSM also contains tooth-whitening properties.*
