Your Holiday Shine with Nature-Based Dental and Oral Health Care
Holistic dentists and many wellness practitioners believe that wellness begins in the mouth. Your gums and your teeth have a connection to major organs and systemic functions in your body, including (but not limited to) your cardiovascular system, your digestive organs, your lymph and even your brain. So, a simple way to support the health of not only your mouth, but your entire body today?
don’t use it on your teeth.Conventional toothpaste contains potent toxins linked to endocrine suppression, neurotoxicity and even cancer. Some of those harmful ingredients to look out for? Sodium fluoride, which can also be found in industrial pesticides. Triclosan, an anti-bacterial chemical carcinogen. Sodium Laurel Sulfate, a damaging detergent that causes the body to act like a sponge for nitrates and toxicity. DEA, an inflammatoryfoaming agent known to burden the kidneys and liver.We know that wellness advocates are equally concerned about keeping the mouth free of bacteria, cavities and gingivitis, so what’s the solution to the toxic toothpaste conundrum? Using plant-based antimicrobial and anti-flammatory ingredients derived straight from nature.
- Swap out toxic bleach in toothpaste for Baking Soda & Clay with Shine Brightener & Polish
- Swap out carcinogenic antibacterial triclosan for Peppermint & Clove withWatchYour Mouth – Extreme Clean Toothpaste Replacement & Mouthwash
- Swap mouthwashes with SLS for Neem & Myrrh, and an oil pulling protocol with Just for Grins – Gentle Dental Toothpaste Replacement & Mouthwash

I have been using Balance for the past several months, personally, and also with my clients in my healing practice. Balance creates a palpable energetic shift almost immediately. It is tonifying and strengthening to the system, while creating an energetically unfavorable environment for pathogens. The effect is dramatic and it smells good, too. I have been using Stacy’s oils for years now and am so appreciate how clean and tolerable they are, even for the most sensitive. I’m lovin’ you Stacy, and am always in awe of your magical ways with the oils.
