Ingredients explained:

Neem is one of the most important medicinal trees in India. It has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine. All parts of the tree can be used; the leaf, bark, or oil from the seed. Neem has strong antiseptic and anti-inflammatory qualities. We put it in truthpaste to help maintain healthy gums. 

Aloe Vera is well known for its soothing properties, and some studies have shown that Aloe Vera helps treat gingivitis by killing the bacteria which causes it. It is also said that Aloe Vera helps your body to absorb minerals.

Myrrh is the resin from commiphora genus trees. It is used in conventional medicine as an antiseptic in mouthwashes, toothpastes and gargles. It is an antiseptic and helps support gum heath. It also has roots in traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic medicine.

Xylitol found in truthpaste is derived from non GM birch trees. It is a natural sweetener, but many studies have found its use in oral care. Not only does it alkalise your mouth, research shows it fights bacteria that causes tooth decay.

Cinnamon essential oil helps target bacteria causing bad breath. It has anti-fungal and antibacterial qualities, and studies show it targets streptococcus mutans bacteria which causes tooth decay, and lactobacillus plantarum bacteria that cause gum disease. It also has pain killing qualities.

Clove bud is usd as an excellent natural toothache relief. It has been used for centuries in Chinese medicine. Its strong germicidal qualities help to fight oral infections and kill bacteria.

Wintergreen Oil, derived from Gaultheria Procumbens is also known as 'Natures Aspirin'. Used in Ayurvedic medicine for its therapeutic qualities and in spiritual ceremonies bringing harmony between earth and its inhabitants. Research claims Wintergreen helps support healthy bone density and prevent tooth decay.

Mentha Piperita, or Peppermint has an array of health benefits as well as being so widely used as a toothpaste flavour. It also helps fight bacteria in your mouth and prevent cavity causing biofilms to form. Its powdered leaves were used to keep teeth white and fight bad breath.

Sodium bicarbonate is used by people all over the world to brush their teeth. It is great for your teeth and helps alkalise your mouth, helping keep your saliva a good pH for your teeth to remineralise.

Bentonite clay is known for its ability to absorb toxins including mercury used in dental fillings. Bentonite is a mineral rich clay, and can be used for many health benefits. It can be ingested, or used topically on skin too. Clay therapies have been used for thousands of years, bentonite having a key part in cleansing. 

Calcium Carbonate, found in most toothpastes, calcium carbonate is a natural mineral. It is used as a base ingredient, gentle abrasive, and to help alkalise the toothpaste.

 

Usage:
Use a dry toothbrush or utensil to scoop out a small amount, about the same as you would with other toothpastes. There is no foaming agents so it will feel different, but it works just as well, if not better!
