All Organic Ingredients:
Frankincense (Boswellia carterii) – Frankincense oil anoints everything it touches with a sanctimonious essence of sacred reverence. As the best measure of your overall health, your mouth, teeth, and gums deserve the royal treatment with this blessed oil. Frankincense contains unparalleled antiseptic qualities that are said to prevent infections, tooth pain, bad breath, sores, and cavities.
Myrrh (Commiphora myrrha) – Magnificent Myrrh is the namesake of this serum for good reason. As one of the world’s most ancient botanicals, Myrrh has been revered for thousands of years as nature’s most effective treatment for sore gums. Highly astringent and antiseptic, Myrrh has also been traditionally used to treat wounds, stimulate circulation and healthy growth in gum tissues, treat canker sores, and reduce gum swelling.
Peppermint (Mentha piperita) – Pure, potent peppermint offers more than the minty fresh breath you would expect from a tooth serum. Peppermint is analgesic, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory. This beneficial trinity is holy indeed: peppermint is said to aid digestion, decrease oral inflammation, and inhibit the growth of decay-causing bacterium in the mouth. Our fourth-generation peppermint distillation offers the pure power artificial peppermint can’t: the ability to prevent gingivitis, one of the biggest traditional benefits of this minty-fresh oil.
Thyme Linalool (Thymus officinalis linalool) – Where does the thyme go? Deep into the far-reaching recesses of your most neglected oral nooks and crannies. This rare variety of thyme is a gentle antiseptic renowned for its ability to tone tissues.
Thyme, Wild (Thymus vulgaris) – Wild thyme is a famous breath freshener, but it is the lesser-known qualities of this multi-faceted oil that provide the biggest oral care benefits. In traditional dentistry, thyme is combined with a chemical called chlorhexidine and used as a protective varnish against tooth decay. In natural dentistry, thyme has been historically used for oral care for centuries.
Oregano (Origanum vulgare) – Fresh and wild from the Mediterranean mountains, our Oregano oil offers an arsenal of oral protection. Oregano is packed with beneficial phenol compounds, which contain potent antifungal, antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antibiotic properties. In addition to boosting overall immunity and fighting fungi, Oregano oil is said to prevent plaque buildup in the mouth while fighting, and even preventing, gum disease.
Tea Tree (Malaleuca alternifolia) – Tea tree oil contains high amounts of the natural chemicals traditionally used to fight gingivitis and plaque. These plant-based chemicals, propanol and cineol, are what gives Tea tree oil its antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral and astringent properties. For thousands of years, Tea tree oil has been used to reduce oral inflammation and to effectively fight over 162 different types of common mouth bacterium. The Australian Dental journal stated that tea tree is a “therapeutic agent in chronic gingivitis and periodontitis, conditions that have both bacterial and anti-inflammatory components.”
Jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis) – Jojoba is known for its incredible skin benefits, but it is also a chief player in natural oral care. Jojoba’s loving lipids easily transfers its soothing properties to teeth, and gums.
