You may want to stop 🙅 brushing your teeth until you read 📕 this. Ever since we were little, we've been told to brush and floss our teeth. It's pretty much become second nature to us, right? But if you really knew the amount of chemicals hiding in your toothpaste, just the idea 💭 of putting it in your mouth 👄 (and accidentally ingesting it) would make you put your toothbrush down. It was recently revealed by the FDA that the antibacterial chemical called triclosan is super harmful because it causes hormone disruption. Yet, some of the most popular toothpaste brands still carry products that contain this harsh chemical.
Yikes. Luckily, there are natural alternatives that are just as effective at keeping our pearly whites shiny 🌞 and healthy *without* the dangerous side effects.

Free of fluoride, parabens, and triclosans, I love that this natural toothpaste leaves your mouth 👄 feeling super clean 🚿 without a strong ✊ aftertaste. It doesn't produce the same amount of foam a regular toothpaste would, which took some time 🕥 getting used to but the fact that it contains antiseptic essential oils more than makes up for it 🙌.
