I received a small bottle in the mail. I was a little surprised at the size, but let me tell you, the size is very misleading.
The directions say 2 to 5 drops. I was skeptical so I started off with 5 drops. WOW! It was strong and a little to much for my mouth and sinus cavities to handle. 2 drops was plenty for this girl.
It did a pretty good job. Which was a shock to me. I am weird about my teeth and very picky about what I used to brush and how my teeth feel. Normally I used baking soda and peroxide and they become squeaky (literally) clean. That didn't happen with this, but they did feel pretty clean.
I decided to combine it with the baking soda and peroxide. Let me tell you I LOVED IT! It gave the nice minty flavor to the mixture, which was great. I didn't feel like I needed a breath mint after to give me that minty breath.
I didn't expect my gums to feel like they did. Having several autoimmune diseases, my gums have taken a beating and become red and swollen. After just a week my gums felt different. Not as tender, and after 2 weeks the bleeding when I brushed was gone. Even my dentist commented on how much better my gums looked. This was a huge selling point for me.
After I tried it I had the kids try it. They weren't as excited as I was. They liked the smell, but didn't like how strong it was. So I made them a baking soda paste (baking soda and water) and added a couple of drops. It was much better for them, and they even request this over their old toothpaste now.
I definitely recommend this to anyone that is looking for an all natural way to brush your teeth.
