I love love love this toothpaste.
It tastes like you dipped your toothbrush in baking soda, then squeezed a fresh lemon over the top.
And that’s because that is pretty much the ingredient list on this pure, organic, high quality toothpaste.
I love brushing with baking soda… washing your oral muscosa and teeth with baking soda is a fabulous way to re-set your mouth’s pH every morning and every evening… it is gentle on your teeth and neutralizing for breath, too.
I am also a big fan of just sprinkling your toothbrush with baking soda and brushing, so for folks on a strict budget, this is probably my #1 recommendation for toothpaste.
And brushing without toothpaste is fine as well. (Why am I comfortable with using no toothpaste at all? I blog about that here.)
But if you want to step it up a notch, make brushing your mouth feel like a spa treatment and a treat, you’ll want to look at Miessence’s toothpaste line. They have mint and lemon flavors… I am addicted to the lemon one.

You also may want to refer to my section on toothpaste in the FAQ. Good info and sources there on effectiveness of baking soda/low abrasion/stain removal.
We also have a Buy 1 Get 1 Free on the Lemon and Anise toothpastes (while supplies last). Details are posted on my blog:

Great deal for any Heartsong readers who want to give it a try!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you so much Alison, for another fabulous product and a great deal. If you missed it, I highlight Miessence perfumes here and was so stinkin’ excited to get a bottle of my favorite perfume (Brave) for Mother’s Day a few weekends ago. It was the perfect gift. I have it on right now!
Here are some other toothpastes that we love. Because the Miessence toothpastes taste so salty and baking-soda-ey… my daughter doesn’ t like it. And my son doesn’t use any toothpastes at all. So what toothpaste do I get for my daughter?
Her favs are:
and we both use Tom’s of Maine Fluoride Free Sensitive Tooth toothpaste as well… me because I have one tooth that is sensitive and her because it is minty and refreshing without being a harsh, burning mint flavor. Great for kids who like just a touch of mint but not a *grown up* mint toothpaste.
The other thing I wanted to mention is for folks who get a coated tongue or tonsil stones.
As horrible as it is to admit, I have always always had to fight against a white tongue. The minute I eat something sweet… with honey or sugar or anything milky/creamy… the bacteria on my tongue go crazy and have a party.
I have maintained my tongue with daily brushing and that alone is amazing. But… this one spray has changed my life! Taken me from daily frustration with brushing my tongue to preventing the problem in the first place… Dr. Katz Fresh Breath Throat Spray. Hallelujah!!!
It has a long nozzle, and I just angle to spray directly on my tonsils. One spray every morning on my tonsils has literally nipped the bacterial problem/white tongue struggle in the bud. It’s gone. I am so thankful for this product that I went from considering a tonsilectomy to feeling completely normal. It works so well I was scared to look at the ingredient list, but what I found was awesome. Baking soda, zinc, tea tree oil… awesome! No SLS, alcohol, or saccharine.
Dr. Katz has lots of other products, and I’ve tried them, but the one thing I keep going back to is this throat spray. He does offer a fluoride free toothpaste, but Miessence’s Lemon Toothpaste beats the pants off of it. Even just straight baking soda would, in my book, be just as good, possibly better.
I don’t think you need all of the *packages* that Dr. Katz pushes on his website. Still, I just had to mention this throat spray, for readers who, like me, tend to get food stuck on their tonsils or a coating on their tongue, and didn’t know there was a way to directly cleanse the tonsils. This spray does.
Okay, those are my oral hygiene favs. Any to add? What do you all like to use? Let me know! xoxo
