This product comes in regular formula and a whitening formula. The whitening formula is made possible with the addition of lemon essential oil.
After many years of using a very popular commercial toothpaste, I started to develop an allergic-like reaction to the product. My gums would swell and mouth ulcers would form. I looked for alternatives to these products and found some. But I couldn’t pronounce half of the ingredients on the product labels. I began to wonder what opportunities there were to create all-natural products with pure and simple ingredients—simple ingredients that we are all familiar with.
So the first all-natural product I made was toothpaste. The toothpaste was made from equal parts of baking soda and coconut oil. By adding some essential oils (peppermint, spearmint, eucalyptus and tea tree), I was able to make a very refreshing toothpaste that left my teeth deep cleaned. When I discovered that citrus essential oils work well to remove stains on teeth, I started to add lemon and lime essential oils to my recipe and discovered that it worked very well to remove stains and keep my teeth white. The result? My teeth and mouth are cleaner than ever and I no longer have stains or plaque buildup! Lastly, the allergic reactions have stopped—no more swelling of my gums or mouth ulcers.
Therapeutic Benefits: Eucalyptus oil is used because it is a natural antiseptic, antiviral, and bacteriacide. Tea tree oil is also an effective antibacterial and antiviral agent. Eucalyptus and tea tree essential oils are effective at treating and preventing both mouth ulcers and cold sores. In addition to being an effective antiviral and antibacterial agent, the peppermint and spearmint essential oils are used in the toothpaste because they both offer an enlivening and refreshing scent.
