Does a brown, natural toothpaste sound unbelievable to you? Let’s talk about the top on my list of natural toothpaste reviews, but first, more shocking things.
If you’re a parent, you’ve surely experienced the disbelief that happens when a child totally loses it over something that happens every. single. day.
Right? (Please tell me I’m not alone on this!)
For the 5-and-under crowd, simple tasks like getting dressed, getting one’s hair done, washing hands before a meal, and brushing one’s teeth can suddenly be the biggest disaster that’s happened all day.
My husband and I sometimes just look at each other incredulously, thinking, “Really? Seriously, kid, you are going to throw a fit right now over brushing your teeth???”
I’ve taken to saying to my 2-year-old, “If you don’t want to brush your teeth, that’s fine. But you’ll have to stop eating. If you like food and want to eat, you need to brush your teeth every day.”
It’s probably beyond his comprehension, but it makes me feel better.
Earthpaste = Mud Mouth = Safe Toothpaste
Why put something in your mouth that would be dangerous to swallow?
It’s funny, really, that so many accept without question the warnings on conventional fluoridated toothpaste: do not swallow.
I love what our toothpaste says:
Safe to eat. Rinse or swallow at your discretion.
Our toothpaste in the Kimball house is brown, slimy, and doesn’t need to be spit out into the sink. It probably throws babysitters for a loop, come to think of it!
It contains no SLS, no glycerin, no artificial sweeteners, no foaming agents, no artificial colors, and no fluoride (on the list of chemicals that hurt kids’ brains – and yes, it’s still added to city water. Way to go, government.)
It’s called Earthpaste, and my kids prefer the lemon flavor (but the others still aren’t too “hot” for them). I like Spearmint (because there’s no sweetener) and Cinnamon (because I just like it) and my husband is a minty fresh guy.
