” Well your teeth are so white! What do you use to brush with?” asked my friend Jennie one afternoon, after we went over all the nasties in her toothpaste. My fun answer?
” I brush with charcoal and essential oil! And I love it!”
I was so excited when Well Scent reached out to me about checking out some of their products. I have been following them on IG for awhile now, and had heard nothing but amazing things. I’ve also wanted to switch up my dental ritual, so I was excited to see that they had a healthy, natural dental line! This line coupled with frequent trips to practices similar to that of this Manhattan dentist is sure to help keep your teeth, gums and mouth in perfect hygenic condition!
I’ve been pumped about brushing my teeth in the last few weeks! Using a powerful combination of the Shine Dental Powder + Sparkle Dental Powder + Watch Your Mouth, my teeth have never been cleaner or whiter! Before I brush, I anoint myself with Well Scent’s Pause For Peace (which you can tell from these photos I use quite a bit!) on my third eye and on my collarbone for a calming, irie feeling. This centers you and helps you to keep focused on the most important aspect of your dental ritual: your health.
WHAT IT IS: Sparkle is a natural and systemically supportive alternative to toxic mainstream teeth whitening treatments. Sparkle utilizes earth’s gifts to detox the mouth, eliminate plaque and naturally brighten and strengthen dental enamel.
How I use it:
I add this to my brush first and use it on my teeth with a little filtered water.
Why It Works:
Activated charcoal is perhaps a counter-intuitive option for teeth brightening, but the truth is, my teeth have never been brighter, stronger or more healthy! Charcoal has been found more than capable of disarming the lethal properties of thousands of man-made pollutants and is a key ingredient in many detoxification protocols. Activated charcoal works through the principle mechanism of adsorption. It acts by electrostatically binding molecules to the surfaces of the charcoal particle. One teaspoon of activated charcoal powder has about the same surface area as a football field. This expansive surface area translates into a tremendous potential to adsorb toxictity. It also contains Myrhh, Plaintain and Baking Soda. Of course, this may not work for everyone in the whitening process but it’s something you can try. If you have no success, it may be best visting a Greenville area dentist to get the white teeth you’ve always dreamed of!
WHAT IT IS: Exfoliant, tooth brightener and polish that supports locally and systemically. The natural ingredients are transported directly into the bloodstream from the gum mucosa. This formulation strongly inhibits the bacteria that cause heart disease, gingivitis, bad breath and inflammation from other microbes. It has received praised amongst medical and naturopathic doctors as well as biological dentists. (Vegan, Gluten-Free, Paleo)
How I use it:
After I brush with Sparkle, I add Shine + my preferred essential oil (Watch Your Mouth) to my tooth brush and go to work!
Why It Works:
Green Living Clay is a rare desert clay that has been protected from contaminants and leaching by the climate. Sealed away and isolated from natural elements by a cap of zeolite minerals for forty-three million years, this highly charged Calcium Bentonite Clay has tremendous drawing power, making it useful as a gentle mouth detox. Baking soda has been shown to neutralize acids in the mouth which reduces the amount of acid-loving bacteria that cause cavities. Baking soda has also been shown to reduce dental plaque. It will naturally and gently remove surface stains.
INGREDIENTS:Cinnamomum Zeylanicum Leaf Oil (Cinnamon), Mentha Piperita Oil (Peppermint), Hippophae rhamnoides (Supercritical sea buckthorn berry oil), Thymus vulgaris extract (Thyme), Eugenia Caryophyllus (Clove) Flower Oil, Pistacia lentiscus gum water (mastic), Azadirachta indica (Neem) and 100% USDA Certified Organic Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil.
How I use it:
I add this invigorating essential oil blend to my toothbrush along with my Shine Powder. It tastes really fresh, with a blend of cinnamon, peppermint, thyme and clove blended with all star neem oil, to clean and balance. I also love that I can switch this blend to other essential oils, as sometimes I prefer a different flavor to my toothpaste.
I also use this for oil pulling, adding some to coconut oil and then swishing the blend around in my mouth for 5-10 minutes. This helps to prevent cavities, kill bacteria and heal any funky stuff going on. I love it!
Why It Works:
Peppermint has a wide range of actions (antiviral, anti-fungal, anti-infectious, antispasmodic, analgesic and others). It is a tonic to the liver, heart, stomach and pancreas. It acts specifically against Bacillus subtilis, Candida albicans, E. Coli, Staphylococcus and many others.
Studies have shown that Neem Oil can benefit oral health by reducing plaque and bacteria. It is antioxidant and mineral-rich (zinc, magnesium, copper, iron, phosphorous and potassium) and is generally well tolerated and particularly useful in cases of gingivitis.
