Liquid Tooth Cleanse
Alternative to toothpaste in plastic toothpaste tubes.
Anise & Clove
The Anise & Clove Tooth Cleanse is a refreshing alternative to conventional toothpaste. With just a couple drops, this formula delivers a familiar lather and keeps your mouth feeling as clean as the other stuff!
There are other great things about it too, like the fact you’ll be healing your receding gums which come from brushing with far too abrasive pastes. Receding gums aren’t just uncomfortable, they also lead to more cavities as they expose the much softer dentin layer of the tooth which is usually covered by gums or the much harder enamel. Also, because it doesn’t contain any glycerin, it won’t block your teeth from remineralizing. What is remineralizing you say?
Well in short, when we have something flavorful in our mouths -- food, drink or toothpaste, acids are released in our mouths to begin the process of breaking down our food for digestion. The acids in our mouths actually make our teeth slightly more soft and porous. After you’ve finished eating or drinking, our saliva changes from acidic back to alkaline, and if everything is working well, your teeth should go back to their harder and stronger state. If you brush with sticky things like glycerin, they adhere to the tooth and block the minerals in your saliva from penetrating the tooth. So imagine the state of your poor teeth when your toothbrush enters your mouth with minty explosion flavored toothpaste, digestive acids get released and they get all soft and open, then you start vigorously brushing them with intense abrasives. Like using sandpaper in the shower instead of a loofah. No wonder your gums are running from you!
The Anise & Clove Tooth Cleanse provides an alternative that gently cleanses the teeth with mild soaps and checks overzealous bacteria with Fat and the Moon made myrrh tincture.
Essential oil of clove supports gum health, and anise essential oil sweetens the flavor and promotes good digestion.
All the same gum-honoring properties as the Anise & Clove version, but with a refreshing boost that reminds us of crushing fresh mint leaves between our teeth.
Pair with Fat and the Moon's Tooth Polish, which should be used once every 1-2 weeks to help keep teeth free of stains from coffee or tea.
