Amazingly Natural Toothpaste–New Kid-Friendly Flavor {GIVEAWAY-NOW CLOSED}

April 24th, 2013 · 22 Comments · Natural Health, What to Buy

Our family has more or less been using Earthpaste for a year now, and I’m excited to share a brand new flavor with you that is more “kid-friendly” than ever: Lemon Twist.

My husband and I (and my mom and dad too!) have been enjoying the previous three flavors immensely: Cinnamon, Peppermint, and Wintergreen. We all have a different favorite (mine is cinnamon). For the kids, sometimes they feel a little “too spicy,” which is the same thing they say emphatically about yesterday’s brushing blend giveaway.

However, they both LOVED lemon twist upon first taste.

It makes their mouths smell a little like Pledge when you’re brushing, but it’s a good, clean smell. Lemon still has nice anti-bac properties like the original three flavors, but with less bite.

If you’re unfamiliar with Earthpaste in general, here’s a bit more…

From the company:

We wanted a toothpaste that was as natural as possible, so we started with hydrated Redmond Clay and added Xylitol, essential oils, and Real Salt. And that’s it. Earthpaste is amazingly natural toothpaste.

Earthpaste’s list of ingredients is unique, but the things we left out are just as important. Most brands of toothpaste contain foaming agents like SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate), and chemicals like titanium dioxide to make the paste bright white. Not Earthpaste.

It isn’t just safe to swallow — each ingredient in Earthpaste has been used to support healthy systems Earthpaste is different
Earthpaste delivers all the benefits you expect from a toothpaste without any chemicals or unnatural additives. It’s toothpaste unlike any other you’ve experienced — you’ll see the difference on your brush and feel the difference in your mouth.

And our family’s review from last year started this way:

I love what our new toothpaste says:

Safe to eat. Rinse or swallow at your discretion.

It cracks my kids up, too. Instead of, “Spit, please,” I try to remember to say, “Spit or swallow,” and if I don’t, they usually swallow and smile up at me. What kid doesn’t love to kind of “break the rules” and not get in trouble?

It’s actually a much bigger adjustment for adults. The first time I used Earthpaste, the new toothpaste from Redmond Clay and Real Salt, I told myself, “You’re going to swallow this, because it’s actually good for you.”

I couldn’t do it.

A Sneak Peek

Ultimate Homemaking ebook Bundle - lg

I’m finally allowed to share some big news about next week with you, and Earthpaste is part of it: nearly one hundred ebooks and ecourses on the subject of homemaking are going to be bundled together in a promo deal, available only from Monday through Saturday next week.

As part of the package, over $140 in bonuses are included from various companies, including Redmond Trading, the parent company of Earthpaste. It’s going to be a wild deal, one of the craziest I’ve seen, ever.

This might be the Mother’s Day gift that keeps on giving.

Topics in the “Ultimate Homemaking Bundle” include:

This bundle is very different from others I’ve been able to offer you because of its breadth and depth – it’s not just natural health or food stuff, but just about every aspect of life. I can’t imagine NOT finding a treasure trove of information in it, and I know what I’ll be doing this weekend (holing up with some “good books” to familiarize myself with the many new (to me) authors included in this package).

More details coming Monday…the sale starts at 9 a.m. on April 29th!

    For some reason I can’t seem to see where to enter with the form? Is the link on the page not working or is it just me? :)

    Christy Reply:

    I can’t find it either… It’s not showing up for me.

  • Beth

    I still spit – I don’t like to swallow whatever came off of my teeth!

  • Shelly via Facebook

    Stacey, there is a rafflecopter form all the way at the bottom of the page!

  • Stephen via Facebook

    thanks for the great giveaways

  • Hilarie

    I loved your “too spicy” comment – that’s exactly what my kids say, too! We’ve tried all but the lemon flavor, and they don’t care for any. I need to get my hands on a lemon sample one of these days!

  • Sheryl via Facebook

    Where do you buy earth paste? I found it at Harvest Health but not the lemon flavor.

  • Jamie via Facebook

    My son says spicy every time we brush with the Peppermint, next we will try the cinnamon.

  • Leslie via Facebook

    Angela- you guys might like this!

    There’s a Rafflecopter form after the numbered list. Maybe you have an ad blocker on? I’m not even sure if that impacts it, but it’s worth a shot. I hope you can see it! :) Katie

  • SweetJeanette

    I think the sweetner I’d like to see would be Stevia. Why? It’s supposed to be natural, doesn’t affect blood sugar, and not a chemical. If there’s another one, with those qualities, then I’d pick that too ;-)

    Thanks for the chance to try these!

  • Katherine

    Katie, am I totally missing where we’re supposed to go for the mandatory entry? Sorry…

    Katie Kimball @ Kitchen Stewardship Reply:

    Just click on the Rafflecopter widget, and the mandatory entry will drop down to show a place to type in your answer. That’s it! :) Katie

    Stacey LaCross Grant It’s a Rafflecopter form near the bottom – might need to enable ads or something to see it?

  • via Facebook

    Sheryl Offringa Bourzac Probably just ask Harvest Health Foods to order the new flavor! And you can buy online. :)

  • Diane

    The ingrediant that i want in tooth paste is Xylitol for it’s anti-bacterial properties.

  • Diana

    Katie, do you brush John’s teeth? Or at what age did you start toothbrushing with your older kiddos? I’m afraid to brush my little guy’s teeth before he understands the “spit and don’t swallow” principle :) I guess Earthpaste would take care of that problem, but I’m still hesitant. (He’s 15 months and has 12 teeth.)

    Katie Kimball @ Kitchen Stewardship Reply:

    I’m so bad at that! I know I should more often – right now we just use water and a toothbrush. It’s good practice, and he does have molars that deserve brushing!! :) Katie

  • JAmie S

    Awesome! am I always trying to a natural toothpaste that is effective

  • Jennifer

    How do we “tell” you things, like I already have a subscription to the blog and newsletter? Here?

    Katie Kimball @ Kitchen Stewardship Reply:

    In the Rafflecopter form, you just click on the part for that option. Can you see the form?

    Thanks and good luck! Katie
