Virgin Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera) – This diverse lip is a caring carrier oil and botanicalbiotic coconspirator that balances oral ecology. This optimal oil soothes the oral tissue and gently removes bacteria that cause bad breath.
Baking Soda (Sodium Bicarbonate) – Teeth thrive when they are bathed in a sea of sweet saliva, and baking soda buffers and neutralizes food acids. In addition to being an effective cleaning polish, baking soda is gentle. It has significantly lower abrasiveness than the cleaning agents of chalk and silica that are used in commercial toothpastes, and the baking soda’s natural alkalinity neutralizes bacterial acidity.
Saponified Olive Oil (Olea europaea) – IOur organic saponified olive oil captures all of the nourishing, moisturizing properties of olive oil while enhancing the oil’s ability to help remove plaque from the teeth. Saponification is a chemical reaction that occurs when the oil is treated with a highly alkaline solution.
Frankincense Essential Oil (Boswellia carteri) – A liquid pearl of holy anointing oil from the tree of life, our Frankincense comes from Somaliland where they grow the highest quality of gum trees. This precious essence has been used to support clean teeth and fresh breath for thousands of years in Middle Eastern areas. It is common for Arabian people to chew the resin in their mouths. They know of its ability to eliminate bad breath causing bacteria and assist with removing plaque.
Myrrh Essential Oil (Commiphora myrrha) – Myrrh is one of the oldest botanicals in the world. It has been mentioned in Egyptian texts including the Ebers Papyrus, which documents over eight hundred formulas.

Peppermint Essential Oil (Mentha piperita) – Peppermint’s cool breezy taste gives you long-lasting fresh breath. Our peppermint is a genuine distillation of the fresh leaves and comes from a fourth generation family of distillers in France. The peppermint in commercial toothpaste is artificial menthol and only offers flavor. Real peppermint is a potent and pleasant friend for oral care. It also inhibits the bacteria that cause bad breath.
Tea Tree Essential Oil (Malaleuca alternifolia) – Traditional tea tree is an herbaceous Herculean do-all. It is naturally packed with magnificent mouth attendants. Potent plant compounds of cineole and propanol work to refresh the mouth, prevent tartar build-up, and banish the bacteria that cause bad breath. Steam distilled in Australia, Tea Tree oil evokes a super-clean, piney-clean aroma.
Sweet Thyme Essential Oil (Thymus officinalis linalool) – This is a rare variety of the thyme species. It is a gentle toner that balances oral secretions. Thyme Linalool is also a potent botanicalbiotic that banishes bad breath bacteria.
