Here is an updated version of this years zero waste dental products I love + some new to me. When it comes to zero waste I chose to live by example and it certainly requires thought and execution. Being mindful of what we purchase and its lifespan offers us insight to what choices we make. At the end of the day I like to reflect on how much trash I did, or didn’t produce. At the beginning of each day I try to reflect on what I hope to achieve, invite, and value.
As y’all know, I love exploring and studying the benefits of botanicals + plants and their uses. Living Libations is a Canadian-based company who dedicate themselves to meaningfully creating botanical based products for our body + mind. Their oral care products featured here are full of anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties and I love them! I hope they integrate bigger sizes for bulk buying. Most of their products are vegan, and everything featured here is vegan!
I am looking into getting some wooden dental cleaners, these are biodegradable and have excellent reviews. Most flosses are made with plastics/petrochemicals that cannot be recycled and end up in the ecosystem, which is really sad to see our trash affect wildlife. Living Libations founder Nadine Artermis also penned a book on holistic dental care – although please note**, it’s also important to have a collaborative conversation with a dental professional
So what are my favorite this year!
Greenroot Bamboo brushes have become my favorite, they have charcoal bristles, a bamboo foundation, and the company packages their products in compostable material. Brushing wise, they are the most comfortable brush I have used thus far and I did order these in bulk for the year + travel.
Living Libations Happy Gum Drops – You can sub toothpaste with this potent botanical alchemy in a bottle, it contains clove bud, peppermint, oregano, and sea buckthorn oil, alternately you can use it as a sea salt rinse as a zero waste mouthwash~ I love that it is purely plant based and comes in glass vials which is great for travel or transport. Remember your gums are important too!!
Living Libations Yogi Tooth Serum – This is a bit more on the stronger side, featuring Neem, Cayenne, and Mastic Essential Oil. It leaves your mouth feeling clean and refreshed with its spicy kick! I love that the Living Libation dental care products are multi-use and nourishing!
InVitamin Charcoal Tooth Powder – Still my go-to for charcoal powder, this charcoal based tooth powder/paste is my truly my favorite and the company will send you a refill in a biodegradable bag upon request. It lasts a long time and it’s purely plant based. It is lab-tested to whiten teeth and contains no synthetic or additives.
Let me know if any of y’all have any zero waste dental care tips!
