HealThy Mouth Brushing Blend 15ml
How does the HealThy Mouth Blend help? Restores the natural balance of microbes that live in our mouths. Tooth decay and gum disease mean that our mouths are out of balance. The HealThy Mouth Blend was formulated using plant essences that have been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years to help restore the mouth to health.
- Stop and even reverse gum disease by restoring balance in the mouth
- Heal bad breath by addressing the root cause
- Stop tooth decay by making it more difficult for microbes to attach to the teeth
- Support stressed tissue to heal itself
- Help remineralize tooth decay by increasing saliva production
How do I use the Healthy Mouth Blend? When brushing - You can use HealThy Mouth Blend by itself or in addition to your regular toothpaste or tooth powder. Apply 3 or 4 drops of HealThy Mouth Blend onto your toothbrush and brush as usual. Remember, the bacteria that cause gum disease can double every 20 minutes! For best results, brush at least 2 minutes twice daily using the HealThy Mouth Blend.
We also highly encourage users to brush their tongues with the HealThy Mouth Blend after scraping the tongue with a tongue scraper to eliminate bad breath!
As a mouthwash - Simply place 1-2 drops of HealThy Mouth Blend in a small amount of water and swish to reduce the bad bugs in the mouth, freshen the breath AND increase saliva production all at the same time.
On Floss - Placing a drop between your index finger and thumb and running a piece of floss through the oils impregnates the floss with the antimicrobials in the HealThy Mouth Blend. Flossing with the HealThy Mouth Blend provides an even deeper method to get the antimicrobials deeper in the gum pockets especially between molars where gum disease gets going easiest!

Can I use the HealThy Mouth Blend as a mouthwash? (Should I use mouthwash?)
Definitely! In fact, we encourage those who prefer to use mouthwash to simply make their own by putting 1 or 2 drops of HealThy Mouth Blend into an ounce of water and swishing. Many mouthwashes on the market contain chemicals like alcohol, which have been proven to dry out mucous membranes in the mouth and actually contribute to gum disease. In contrast, our HealThy Mouth Blend promotes more saliva production, which is very beneficial to maintaining a healthier oral ecology free from the microbes responsible for tooth decay and gum disease.
Do I need to rinse after using the HealThy Mouth Blend? Is it safe to swallow?
Its really up to you whether or not you want to rinse after using the HealThy Mouth Blend. Since the ingredients are simply organic and wild crafted essential oils in a base of certified organic carrier oil, there is no need to rinse. That said, plant essences are powerful compounds and we recommend that each of us respect this power. Yes, we have swallowed the HealThy Mouth Blend many times and found no harm from doing so. But since the HealThy Mouth Blend was formulated to help the mouth, we find it wise to rinse or spit after using the blend.
Do I use the HealThy Mouth Blend with paste or as a stand-alone product?
Its really up to you, and you have a lot of options. You can use our HealThy Mouth Blend WITH your normal toothpaste, by itself INSTEAD of your toothpaste, with some baking soda or tooth powder to offer some gentle abrasion, with organic coconut oil, with homemade toothpaste, etc. Its really pretty versatile, and the choice is yours.
Does the HealThy Mouth Blend have an expiration date? What is the shelf life?
Our HealThy Mouth Blend does not have a set expiration date. Its shelf life depends on how it is stored. Unopened bottles of our HealThy Mouth Blend will maintain their potency literally for years provided you store them wisely. The three factors that can weaken essential oils are: direct sunlight, heat, and open air. So, store them in their original packaging, away from sunny windowsills, in a cool place (so definitely NOT over your stove or on your car dashboard).
Does the HealThy Mouth Blend kill the good bugs too?
The path to optimal oral health sometimes requires that we rebalance the populations of microbes in our oral microbiome. The bottom line is 98% of Americans have some form of active oral disease. This means that most of us have mouths where disease-causing microbes are running the show. In these cases, the path to optimal oral health requires action to rebalance and create a healthy environment. While we chose the ingredients in our HealThy Mouth Blend based on their ability to target specific bad bugs implicated with gum disease and tooth decay, other microbes are affected too. The good news is that our bodies have a natural ability to repopulate the good guys via saliva.
Our article "Is the Key to Greater Oral Health Already In Your Mouth?" https://www.orawellness.com/is-the-key-to-greater-oral-health-already-in-your-mouth/ explains the importance of saliva. It also contains a video that demonstrates a powerful strategy to maximize the benefits of saliva for our oral health.
How big is the bottle?
We use 1/2 ounce (15ml) amber glass bottles for our HealThy Mouth Blend, which generally ends up lasting 2 to 3 months for one person if used as suggested.
How long does one bottle last?
One bottle of HealThy Mouth Blend is 1/2 ounce (15ml), and contains approximately 452 drops (give or take a few drops). One bottle generally lasts one person 2 to 3 months. That said, how long a bottle lasts is really up to you, as its all based on how many drops you apply per use and how many different ways youre using it (brushing, flossing, swishing, etc.). Weve heard from one young family on a budget who stretched a bottle 6 months for their whole family!
