Brushing Our Teeth with Bentonite Clay

Earthpaste

I’ve tried quite a few “natural” toothpastes, but I really didn’t like the way they made my teeth feel — not clean and sometimes overly sensitive — so I’ve always ended up switching back to my regular toothpaste.

Then, I had the opportunity to try Earthpaste from the makers of Real Salt and Redmond Clay, and I gotta tell you…I was skeptical. I actually left the sealed tubes in the back of our bathroom cabinet for a few weeks while I finished my current tube, and then I reluctantly opened one to give it a try.

Earthpaste is, in fact, made from Redmond Clay, which we tend to refer to as “mud” in our house, so I wasn’t too sure about this idea of brushing my teeth with clay or mud. But the thing about bentonite clay is that it draws impurities out whenever it’s applied, so it actually works really well to clean everything from wounds to teeth.

Once I finally decided to give Earthpaste a try, I was shocked by how much I liked it. My teeth and mouth feel really, really clean after I brush. And not a fake all-I-can-taste-is-spearmint clean, but actually, truly clean.

A few things I like about Earthpaste, for myself and my kids:

  • It’s 100% edible, which means there’s no fear of my kids swallowing it while they brush.
  • It comes in three flavors — Wintergreen, Peppermint and Cinnamon — all of which are added through essential oils.
  • The list of ingredients is short and familiar — purified water, Redmond Clay, xylitol, Real Salt, tea tree oil, menthol and essential oils.
  • Just as important is the list of ingredients you won’t find in Earthpaste: no SLS, no fluoride, no glycerin, no artificial colors, no foaming agents.
  • For us, at least, one tube lasts a long time. You don’t need a ton of Earthpaste to brush your teeth, and the two tubes Redmond Trading sent us to try have lasted us all summer.

Overall, our family is incredibly happy with this toothpaste. It’s made in the U.S.A. from all-natural ingredients, and it really works!

This is a sponsored post; however, all opinions are 100% my own. I was sent two tubes of Earthpaste to try — wintergreen and cinnamon — but our family has purchased additional tubes of wintergreen Earthpaste so that we can continue using it after those run out!

    Mandi, Did you feel like the Earthpaste helped with tooth sensitivity? I’ve heard conflicting things about it’s abrasiveness to teeth. Thank you! Courtney
