I Tried It: Tooth Soap

Do you know what’s lurking in your toothpaste?  Until recently, I hadn’t really given much thought to the chemical ingredients in my favorite toothpaste (Sensodyne, in case you’re curious). I was perusing an all-natural e-commerce website when I came across Tooth Soap. Yep, soap for your teeth.  Sounds rather hippy-dippy, doesn’t it?  It totally is, but a lot of people swear by it. So, I figured I’d give it a whirl to see what all the fuss is about.

Tooth-Soap-Peppermint-Liquid-reviewThe Pros:

  • Free of added glycerin, sweeteners, silicates, fluoride, dyes, and other potentially harmful ingredients.
  • Organic and all-natural.
  • Deep cleans teeth.
  • Nourishes gums.
  • Made in the USA.

 

The Cons:

  • Tastes like soap.  …yeah, I know it’s called Tooth Soap but I was expecting it to taste more peppermint-y.
  • Pricier than drugstore toothpaste.  Cost: $23 for 2 oz.  However, you only need a couple drops per brush session, so I’m assuming the bottle might last awhile.

Overall, I’m into the idea of Tooth Soap.  I might add a couple drops of my own peppermint oil to it, because the flavor really is lacking.  When I finish it, I’m thinking of using the glass bottle to store my own homemade version of tooth soap.  If you’re interested in whipping up your own batch, Mommypotamus has a great post with easy DIY tooth soap and tooth scrub recipes.
