This, and the protective blend of wild orange, clove, cinnamon, eucalyptus, and rosemary make it an effective alternative to toothpastes with harsh chemicals that can lead to sores and sensitivity. Plus, it tastes great.

  • 5-10 drops of Wintergreen or Peppermint essential oil
  • 2 cups filtered or distilled water
  • Dark glass bottle (It preserves the oils and protects them from the effects of light)
