Fat and the Moon
Anise and Clove Tooth Cleanse
Gently cleanse the teeth and befriend the gums with this toothpaste alternative. Use 1-2 drops on a dry toothbrush, and brush away, then spit and rinse. Soap based teeth cleansing can take a couple times to get used to, but your oral ecosystem will thank you for it!
There are other great things about it too, like the fact you’ll be giving your gums a much need break from brushing with far too abrasive pastes. Receding gums aren’t just uncomfortable, they also lead to more cavities as they expose the much softer dentin layer of the tooth which is usually covered by gums or the much harder enamel. Also, because it doesn’t contain any glycerin, it won’t block your teeth from remineralizing. What is remineralizing you say?
Well in short, when having something flavorful in our mouths--food, drink or toothpaste--acids are released in our mouths to begin the process of breaking down our food for digestion. The acids in our mouths actually make our teeth slightly more soft and porous. After you’ve finished eating or drinking, our saliva changes from acidic back to alkaline and if everything is working well, your teeth should go back to their harder and stronger state. If you brush with sticky things like glycerin, they adhere to the tooth and block the minerals in your saliva from penetrating the tooth. So imagine the state of your poor teeth when your toothbrush enters your mouth with minty explosion flavored toothpaste, digestive acids get released and they get all soft and open then you start vigorously brushing them with intense abrasives. Like using sandpaper in the shower instead of a loofah.
The Anise & Clove Tooth Cleanse provides an alternative that gently cleanses the teeth with mild soaps and employs the powers of herbs like myrrh, clove and anise.
And the economy folks! Only three little drops per brush!
