Is it just my kids that eat toothpaste?

We all want a more natural environment for our families. A home free from chemicals, toxins, poisons, and contaminants. Implementing that ideal can sometimes seem daunting – especially when it comes to personal care and dental hygiene. There is so much conflicting information!

I grew up in the era that actually gave fluoride rinses to us in kindergarten. It was normal. All of our toothpaste had fluoride in it just like most toothpastes do today. I always thought it was weird that there was a poison control warning on a product that was meant to go in our mouths. I even remember asking about it and being told to just not eat the toothpaste.

Then I had kids.

Why do they eat the toothpaste?!

Did I eat the toothpaste?

I don’t remember eating the toothpaste, but my kids definitely ate the toothpaste.

I didn’t worry about it so much when they were little little because there were no poison warnings on the toddler tubes and surely they would out grow it.

Except I’m not sure that they did. Despite my best enforcement, we still went through a lot of toothpaste. It was time to figure out why the grown up toothpaste had poison warnings and the little kid toothpaste didn’t. Did you know it’s because of the fluoride? I didn’t. Until I started researching.

The further down the rabbit hole I got on research, the less I wanted conventional toothpaste anywhere near my kids. We tried all of the organic, natural toothpastes from the specialty grocery stores. At one point I even tried my hand at making my own toothpaste.

Yeah. I’ve explained about being that mom before.

It was so frustrating! Either our mouths didn’t feel clean or the stuff was gross or it was just super abrasive. It was no good. And we begrudgingly went back to conventional toothpaste.

Until I ordered my Thieves Kit from Young Living. At the time my youngest daughter fought me tooth and nail about brushing her teeth. Everything from the store was too spicy and made her tummy hurt.

So I let her try the Aroma Bright Toothpaste. There was no warning on the label so I felt safe giving it to her even though it wasn’t the kid’s toothpaste. She LOVED it!

I did too.

I was actually using a prescription fluoride toothpaste at the time that my dentist had prescribed. I have Sjogren’s so I always have a super dry mouth, and if you know anything at all about the benefits of saliva, you know that one of them is actually helping prevent cavities. No saliva, means I had a history of lots of cavities. My dentist’s only solution was higher and higher concentrations of fluoride and that wasn’t sitting well with me. I decided to give the natural toothpaste idea another shot.

Oh my gosh, I LOVE how this stuff makes my mouth feel! It doesn’t increase saliva production by any stretch of the imagination. This isn’t a cure for my Sjogren’s. But it doesn’t dry me out either. No weird tastes in my mouth. And I haven’t had any more mouth infections either – another fun side effect of decreased saliva.

My mom-stincts tell me that it’s probably the Thieves Essential Oil that is infused in both the toothpaste and the mouthwash. Of course Clove is an integral part of that blend and has a pretty incredible reputation in dental history. Either way, I love using the Thieves dental products.

Especially the mouthwash. It’s alcohol free so it doesn’t dry my mouth out. And whatever magic is in the formula, it leaves my mouth feeling fresh for a very long time.

The last item is dental floss, and you guessed it, we have that too. I think this product might actually be my favorite because it reaches areas the others can’t and for someone like me with a less than stellar oral track record, I need all the help I can get. If having essential oils infused into the floss can help me get those beneficial oils into hard to reach places…I’m a happy camper.

The big kids like a mintier flavor than the Aroma Bright. We’ve also tried the Kidscents toothpaste but none of my kids preferred the flavor. They described it as “sweet and fruity”. Since they definitely had a preference, we just stuck to the Thieves toothpastes.

Before I introduce the products that we fell in love with, let me give a little disclaimer.
