The perfect mouthwash to use after you’ve brushed your teeth with the MiEssence certified organic toothpaste is of course the MiEssence mouthwash. No, I really can’t claim to be unbiased, but I do truly believe it. I started using the toothpaste and the mouthwash almost two years ago, and still love them.
When it comes to unsafe, artificial chemicals, mouthwashes can be loaded. The first and most obvious is alcohol. Many mouthwashes contain very high percentages of alcohol. This article published at the UPI (United Press International) website on January 12, 2009 is even titled Alcohol in mouthwash may raise cancer risk.
In addition, the following caution, “Coal-tar-based dyes such as FD&C Blue 1, used in toothpastes, and FD&C Green 3, used in mouthwash, have been found to be carcinogenic in animal studies when injected under skin,” can be found in the National Geographic GREEN GUIDE: The Dirty Dozen Chemicals in Cosmetics.
I’ve started this blog with MiEssence Toothpaste and MiEssence Mouthwash because these are products we put in our mouth and they can therefore be very dangerous if they contain unsafe artificial chemicals. The entire area of flesh inside of our mouthes is “mucuous membrane” which secretes and absorbs fluids in the mouth. The act of brushing the hard enamel surface of our teeth tends to scratch and tear at the gums, often causing bleeding. Then we have a direct opening into our bloodstream. Not to mention swallowing. Some portion of our toothpaste and mouthwash cannot help but be swallowed into our digestive system when we put them into our mouthes.
If you only choose one or two products to switch over to organic, I suggest you choose toothpaste and mouthwash. Any chemical burden occurring in the mouth has direct access to the interior of our bodies. It needs to be safe and pure. Here is a list of the ingredients in MiEssence Mouthwash: certified organic aloe vera leaf juice, certified organic thyme leaf extract, sea salt, certified organic cinnamon leaf essential oil, certified organic clove bud essential oil, myrrh essential oil, sclerotium rolfsii gum, certified organic peppermint essential oil, aqua (water), certified organic sage leaf extract, certified organic spearmint essential oil, stevia rebaudiana extract, and bitter orange fruit extract. It has an intense, tingling flavor and can be diluted with water to taste. Mine has lasted for many months because I use it diluted 50/50 with water.
Your mouth will feel clean and refreshed and you will have peace of mind that your mouthwash contains no artificial chemicals when you use MiEssence Mouthwash.
