Our mouth, we eat with it, breathe through it and of course talk with it. It is the gateway to our body and therefore also a place where bacteria and disease germs grow quickly. This is why it is extra important to take the best possible care of your mouth, because a healthy mouth contributes to a healthy body. We would love to tell you how you can improve your oral health through natural oral hygiene products!
We have listed the very best clean & green oral hygiene products for you.
A solid base.
You brush (we assume you do) your teeth neatly 2 times a day. This is the basis and super important for good oral hygiene. If you still use those disposable plastic toothbrushes, we have a very nice sustainable option for you namely the bamboo charcoal toothbrush. This natural toothbrush is made of recycled bamboo and charcoal enriched bristles. A toothbrush alone will not be enough, which is why we have some wonderful clean & green toothpastes in our range. Toothpaste with fluoride, toothpaste without fluoride, charcoal toothpaste & toothpaste for the little ones, there is a natural toothpaste for everyone. If you are looking for a fluoride-free toothpaste, Weleda's products are a good match for you. Do you like fluoride in your toothpaste, then you can take a look at The Humble Co brand.
Besides a good solid base, you can take your oral health to the next level pretty easily. You've probably heard your dentist tell you that flossing and using toothpicks are extremely important. This is because our food is very good at finding all the little cracks it gets into and this can cause tartar, as well as cavities. Something you want to prevent and fortunately this is possible if you floss properly. So floss away or use toothpicks to remove all the mess between your teeth. This will make your gums a lot happier.
Must-have tool (and our favourite)
The tongue cleaner is your very best friend for your oral health. This is an absolute favourite and we could never live without it. Used for years in Eastern countries, the tongue scraper ensures that germs and bacteria built up on your tongue do not enter your body because you scrape it off your tongue at the beginning of your day. Use a copper tongue scraper as it is anti-bacterial and do this first thing as soon as you get out of bed. When you have scraped your tongue 5 to 7 times, you can brush your teeth as normal.
Do you already use mouthwash?
As the very last step of your oral hygiene routine, you can rinse your mouth with mouthwash. The natural mouthwash from The Humble Co is a gentle mouthwash that will leave you feeling fresh and confident. Moreover, this mouthwash helps remove bacteria, heals wounds in your mouth and protects your teeth from plaque build-up. For best results, use the mouthwash after brushing and wait at least 30 minutes before eating.
