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: A liquid pearl of holy anointing oil from the tree of life, our Frankincense comes from Somaliland where they grow the highest quality of gum trees. This precious essence has been used to support clean teeth and fresh breath for thousands of years in Middle Eastern areas. It is common for Arabian people to chew the resin. They know of its ability to eliminate bad breath causing bacteria and assist with removing plaque.*
Coconut Oil: This diverse lipid is a caring carrier oil and botanicalbiotic coconspirator that balances oral ecology. This optimal oil soothes the oral tissue and gently removes bacteria that cause bad breath.*
Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda): Teeth thrive when they are bathed in a sea of sweet saliva, and baking soda buffers and neutralizes food acids. In addition to being an effective cleaning polish, baking soda is gentle. It has significantly lower abrasiveness than the cleaning agents of chalk and silica that are used in commercial toothpastes, and the baking soda’s natural alkalinity neutralizes bacterial acidity.*
Saponified Olive Oil: Our organic saponified Olive oil captures all of the nourishing, moisturizing properties of olive oil while enhancing the oil’s ability to help remove plaque from the teeth. Saponification is a chemical reaction that occurs when the oil is treated with a highly alkaline solution.*
Myrrh: Myrrh is one of the oldest botanicals in the world. It has been mentioned in Egyptian texts including the Ebers Papyrus, which documents over eight hundred formulas. The Egyptians used large amounts of myrrh in rituals, remedies, cosmetics, and embalming. Myrrh’s oral history includes it being used as a soothing, calming essence for the mouth.*
Peppermint: Peppermint’s cool breezy taste gives you long-lasting fresh breath. Our Peppermint is a genuine distillation of the fresh leaves and comes from a fourth generation family of distillers in France. The Peppermint in commercial toothpaste is artificial menthol and only offers flavor. Real Peppermint is a potent and pleasant friend for oral care. It also inhibits the bacteria that cause bad breath.*
Sweet Thyme - Thymus Linalool: This is a rare variety of the Thyme species. It is a gentle toner that balances oral secretions. Sweet Thyme is also a potent botanicalbiotic that banishes bad breath bacteria.*
Tea Tree Oil: Traditional Tea Tree is an herbaceous Herculean do-all. It is naturally packed with magnificent mouth attendants. Potent plant compounds of cineole and propanol work to refresh the mouth, prevent tartar build-up, and banish the bacteria that cause bad breath. Steam distilled in Australia, Tea Tree oil evokes a super-clean, piney-clean aroma.*
Kaolin Clay - Kaolinite: Quality Kaolin Clay is a silica rich remedy. Our ancestors deemed that this dirt worked brilliantly for oral care. Clays essentially function as a magnet; when clay is mixed with saliva, molecules are electrically activated and pull out micro-particles of toxins and impurities. It gently and effectively exfoliates without being harsh on enamel.*
