Tooth Soap! Huh?
I knew I was going to need some toothpaste soon. Instead, I searched Etsy to see if I could find some tooth soap. Yes, you can believe what you are reading--tooth soap. There had been several discussions about tooth soap on Lampworketc, a forum for people who make and sell lampwork beads.
I came across a store on Etsy called: Rose of Sharon Acres.
It was here that I found my tooth soap and many other wonderful herbal remedies. There were choices available. Monica carries tooth soap in different sizes. I chose the family size. I think this will last me until the day I die! There is tooth soap with and without Xylitol. Read the information on Xylitol in the listing. It's very interesting.
When my package arrived, I took it upstairs and started to brush my teeth. Suddenly, I went back to the days of my childhood when money was tight, and all we could afford was Ivory Soap to brush our teeth. Well, to be truthful, when the moment of truth arrived, even though this tooth soap is flavored, (I chose the mint.), I still tasted soap.
From the discussions I had read on LE, the people who had used the tooth soap, and now swore by it, said it was necessary to rinse many, many times. The people involved in the discussions, also said to be sure to rinse with mouthwash. That is true. The great news is that when you have finished brushing, and you have finished rinsing, your mouth is clean.
It does take a lot of rinsing to get rid of the taste. Yes, when you are finished, your teeth are clean and your mouth is clean. I love the tooth soap. No, I don't like the taste, but I love the results!
