{review} living libations clay toothpaste & best skin ever giveaway!

living libations healthy gums clay toothpaste review

Ever since I discovered Living Libations, a Canadian brand of organic and wild-crafted beauty and oral care, I’ve been very anxious to test my way through the entire line (perhaps I need to find more to do with my time??). Already a convert for their shampoo and conditioner (click here for my review), I turned my attention next to their clay toothpaste.

nerdy fact: your body will readily absorb whatever you choose to brush your teeth with as the skin inside of our mouth is only one cell thick (absorption rate = ~90%).

Not wanting to muddy the feng shui I’ve got going on with my body, I’ve been brushing my teeth with the Living Libations’ Healthy Gums Clay Toothpaste over the past few weeks and I have to say it’s been an adjustment. Quite different from the regular, and even other ‘natural’, toothpastes on the market it blends clay, zeolite, coconut oil, saponified olive oil, and sodium bicarbonate with essential oils of rose, peppermint, clove, oregano, cinnamon, seabuckthorn, tea tree and thyme.

Brushing with clove, cinnamon, and peppermint are ancient ways to care for your teeth; they activate the hypothalamus, enhance parotid gland secretions and get the digestive juices flowing – Nadine Artemis, founder of Living Libations

I’ve been wetting my toothbrush and lathering my mouth up with a minty-fresh inducing paste since I was a kid so switching to a dry brush, and a drop of this non-foamy paste, was almost too weird for me. But you get used to it, and the real bonus has been that my teeth appear brighter and my gums bleed less when I floss.

Bright teeth and strong gums deserve to be celebrated…who’s ready for a giveaway?!
