DID YOU KNOW THAT YOU CAN BRUSH YOUR TEETH WITH ALL NATURAL SOAP?
DID YOU KNOW THAT YOU CAN BRUSH YOUR TEETH WITH ALL NATURAL SOAP?
It not only leaves your teeth cleaner than normal toothpaste but it also helps re-mineralize your teeth while helping to prevent or lessen decay!
How can you tell? first of all you need a good dentist office and finding a local dentist is the way to go, its also important so you can do a check up and just see if everything is ok.
How does this work? Our saliva is rich in minerals; minerals that are very important for your teeth to absorb to help keep them strong and healthy (a dentist at Chattanooga knows about this). But sadly, many of the commercial toothpastes are made with a glycerin base, which leaves an invisible film on your teeth. This invisible film stops your teeth from absorbing all the lovely minerals that your body naturally produces from your own saliva. And yes this happens even if you are using as Authority Dental recommends one of the top rated rechargeable toothbrush models. I don’t know why people ask me that, wishful thinking I guess. If you need help to keep your teeth healthy contact Plymouth Dentistry.
This doesn’t happen with a natural bar of soap. It rinses clean. Are you ready to try it? Trust us, we know it sounds crazy but the results have been amazing. I (Jessica) hadn’t been to an implant dentist in over 2.5 yrs. I know I know… this won’t happen again. But I was shocked as the dental hygienist and dentist at Markham Dental Centre couldn’t believe how clean my teeth were. They didn’t have to take the dreaded metal scraper to remove any build up. Not only were they happy but so were my gums, teeth and sanity!
*Disclaimer. Even though our soap can leave your mouth sparkling clean, we can’t promise that it will prevent swearing. We are only human after all!
How exactly do you Brush your teeth with Soap?
1. Use a natural bar of soap from Siena Soap Company that is free of toxins and chemicals. We recommend “Innocence.”
2. Wet your toothbrush.
3. Gently rub your toothbrush bristles across the bar of soap. All you need is a light layer; make sure not to take any little chucks of soap with you in your toothbrush because that may not taste the best.
4. Now, Brush your teeth and enjoy all the lovely bubbles working hard to clean your teeth!
5. Rinse. Rinse. Rinse. (We highly recommend this underrated step.)
6. Enjoy your sparkly clean teeth!
But doesn’t it taste bad?
No, it actually doesn’t. Since it is soap, it does have a little of a soapy taste but it isn’t supposed to taste like candy. And it’s re-mineralizing and getting your teeth extra clean!
Will my kids go for it?
We hope so! We can’t guarantee they will but we can promise clean teeth.
Any ideas on ways to help children get used to it?
Our favorite way to help warm up the kiddos to brushing with soap is to sprinkle a little stevia or xylitol powder on the bar. You don’t need much, just a light sprinkling to make it a little sweeter for the first couple uses or days.
Don’t your soap and most soap contain glycerin?
Yes, our soap and all natural soap will contain a small amount of glycerin. However, it is such a small amount (compared to commercial toothpaste) that it does not prevent your teeth from soaking up all those good minerals.
What’s our favorite flavor for brushing?
Mary’s personnel favorite is “Innocence.” It is mild and flavorless. Jessica likes to use “Citrus Mint”. However, any of our soaps here at Siena Soap Company are safe to brush your teeth with. It just depends which scent YOU prefer!
Does brushing with soap prevent you from swearing?
Absolutely! Ok, no one is perfect. We are all human. But at least your teeth will look great if you happen to slip up!
In Minneapolis we only have a few good months of warm weather in the sun, so naturally, we spend as much time outside as humanly possible! If you are like my family, the issue of sun protection is a high priority topic . What is safe to be putting on your skin and ultimately into your body?
Most sunscreens on the market today contain 9 different ingredients that are known endocrine disrupters, (may cause hormonal problems) in addition to many other chemicals. Eeeekk!
Now get out and enjoy this beautiful weather!
Made with carefully chosen natural vegetable oils and butters that moisturize and repair dry chapped skin, our lip balms are a treat to use.
They are also good for you, too. Petroleum products, common in commercial chap sticks, are never used. Now you don’t have to worry about misplacing your favorite lip balm since you’ll have 4!
