Every month, I’m so excited to do giveaway and share my favorite products with one lucky winner… and in case you didn’t know – I ONLY giveaway or promote products that I actually use in my real life. Products that I personally love from companies that I feel good about supporting.
This month I’m excited to share with you my very own personal Healthy Mouth Routine and I’m giving away a Natural Dental Care Essentials Kit that contains all the amazing stuff I use to keep my mouth and teeth super healthy!
All of the products for this giveaway were generously supplied from the companies at my request – isn’t that awesome?!? Thanks to Tropical Traditions, Redmond, Oral Wellness, WooBamboo, and Dr Tung’s for their support!
First of all I want to share a very little known secret about my own mouth – I haven’t been to the dentist since 2000. Now – I’m not advocating in any way-shape-or-form that you all ditch the dentist, but I just haven’t NEEDED to go. I haven’t had a toothache or any dental issues requiring medical attention… and since I’ve always taken care of my teeth I don’t find annual dental cleaning necessary. Again – this is all my own personal journey, I’m not a medical professional or dentist. And just to be 100% clear – throughout this entire time I’ve had dental insurance so this decision wasn’t financially motivated. – My teeth are healthy and pain free!
My Healthy Mouth Natural Dental Care Routine:
- Oil Pulling – In the morning before I eat or drink anything I swish about a tablespoon of Tropical Traditions Organic Virgin Coconut Oil in my mouth for 10-20 minutes. (it is solid when I scoop it out of the jar but will melt in your mouth into a liquid) Do NOT Swallow the oil. Do NOT spit the oil down the drain – Always spit it into the trash can (or on the ground – I frequently oil pull while walking the dog in the morning) Rinse your mouth out with water or sea salt-water after you are done. For more information on the benefits of Oil Pulling click HERE.Using a high quality Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is imperative for oil pulling. I exclusively use Tropical Traditions Gold Label Organic Virgin Coconut Oil because it’s been minimally processed and it one of this highest quality coconut oil’s on the marktet today!
- Flossing – After oil pulling and/or before bed, I quickly floss my teeth with Dr Tung’s Smart Floss. The reasoning behind flossing is pretty simple, you’re getting all the junk out from between your teeth! (I don’t floss twice a day, every day but just when I feel like there is junk between my teeth – most often at night, before bed & brushing)Dr Tung’s Smart Floss is clinically proven to remove over 55% more plaque than other flosses on the market – the stretch in it helps it reach all those interdental spaces without hurting your gums like other flosses. Also it’s naturally waxed and has a fresh cardamom flavor. And the cute little packaging is biodegradable! I also keep a pack of Dr Tung’s Perio Sticks in my purse for those times when you get a little something stuck between your teeth, they are made from Eco-certified Nordic Birch, double ended, tapered/curved for comfort (the best little toothpicks EVER!)
- Brush – After oil pulling and/or flossing, I brush my teeth with my WooBamboo Toothbrush topped with 3-4 drops of Oral Wellness’ Healthy Mouth Blend and Redmond Earth Paste.EarthPaste delivers all the benefits you expect from a toothpaste without any chemicals or unnatural additives. It’s toothpaste unlike any other you’ve experienced – you’ll see the difference on your brush and feel the difference in your mouth. Made with hydrated Redmond Clay and added Xylitol, essential oils, and Real Salt. And that’s it. Earthpaste is amazingly natural toothpaste. (Wintergreen is my favorite flavor & my hubby loves the cinnamon. They also make a lemon flavor specifically for the kiddos!)Oral Wellness’ Healthy Mouth Blend is made from Organic essential oils specially formulated to effectively and safely kill the bad bugs that cause bad breath, bleeding gums and pain. You can use it alone to brush your teeth or in conjunction with tootpaste, you can use it as a mouth wash by adding a few drops to a some water, a few drops on your floss or in addition to coconut oil for oil pulling.
WooBamboo Toothbrushes have a stylish, sustainable and biodegradable bamboo handle and high-quality Dupont Tynex Bristles that are non-toxic, BPA-freee and Antimicrobial.
In addition to creating a natural dental care routine, there is much to be said about the way the foods you eat will affect your dental health. I strongly encourage you to consume a healthy diet of REAL FOOD with lots of probiotic rich fermented vegetables & diary products and drink lots of homemade Bone Broth.
