If you’re like most people, you probably want white teeth and you’re probably not aware of how toxic toothpaste is. This is a pretty big deal because—while toothpaste isn’t meant to be eaten—swallowing small amounts here and there does happen to the best of us, even if we think we’ve rinsed thoroughly. It also trickles down your throat in small amounts straight to your bloodstream, and that can’t really be avoided. Toothpaste is regulated as a cosmetic and safety testing for cosmetic products can be pretty lax, unfortunately. It is not uncommon to find harmful ingredients lurking in your personal care products, even in your toothpaste and teeth whitening products.
Your typical toothpaste from the store contains nasty things like triclosan, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), artificial sweeteners, artificial colors, fluoride, Propolyene Glycol, Diethanolamine (DEA), microbeads and other undesirables. These toxic chemicals have been linked to bone disorders, antibiotic resistance, numerous types of Cancer, Alzheimers, migraine headaches, gastrointestinal disorders, damage to brain tissue, organ tissue toxicity and this scary list goes on and on and on. Teeth whitening products are also bad for your health and can actually damage your gums and tooth enamel leading to gum disorders and severe pain. It’s best to avoid these toxins, but don’t worry, you can still have white teeth!
My family uses Young Living’s Thieves Aromabright toothpaste, which we love because it doesn’t contain fluoride, SLS, Triclosan, artificial sweeteners, colors or anything else. It has a coconut oil and baking soda base and combines the power of cinnamon, peppermint and spearmint essential oils.
Here are some of the benefits to using Thieves Aromabright Toothpaste:
- Supports healthy-looking gums and teeth with naturally derived ingredients.
- Removes stains.
- Provides long-lasting fresh breath.
- Provides a refreshing minty taste with 100 percent pure essential oils.
- Contains no sulfates, synthetic dyes, artificial flavors, or preservatives.
Some oily friends of mine shared that if you add a drop of Young Living orange essential oil to the top of your toothpaste before you brush it helps whiten your teeth even more, so I’ve been doing this for a couple of weeks now. I regrettably didn’t think to take a “before picture” but my husband has said my teeth are looking whiter, and they definitely feel cleaner and smoother. It’s even removing those stubborn stains from all of those pumpkin spice lattes, and I’m not even having to put bleach in my mouth. Thieves Aromabright + Orange EO for the win! 🙂
Young Living has a whole line of oral care products, including Thieves mouthwash, Thieves dental floss and several kinds of toothpaste to choose from. They even have kids’ toothpaste, but I haven’t ordered it because my kiddos like the Thieves Aromabright just fine, and since it doesn’t have any scary ingredients in it, I’m totally ok with them using it.
