Our Complete Oral Care Routine & System

Proven to deliver real results, naturally. Great for your mouth, body and planet!

Morning (First Thing)

1. TONGUE CLEANER

Benefits: Physically removes bacteria from tongue to freshen breath and reduce bad bacteria. Your body detoxes all night and delivers waste to the tongue — this is the only way to physically remove bacteria from your mouth (a toothbrush only redistributes it, and some will leave your mouth from spitting or swallowing).

How to: Place on tongue as far back as is comfortable. Press curved section of cleaner on tongue and gently pull forward removing the unwanted coating.

2. OIL PULLING MOUTHWASH

Benefits: Controls bacteria, detoxes mouth and can help detox body systemically (based on frequency & length of time pulling).

How to: Take teaspoon to tablespoon size sip, swishing and pulling the oil through your teeth and gums for a minimum of 5 minutes and up to 20 (the longer the better to get the full effects of detoxing your mouth and body).

Spit into garbage when done and rinse and brush your teeth well.

Do this at least 2 to 3 times a week. If you have an active infection (eg. cavity, gingivitis) consider oil pulling 3 times a day everyday. Hard to find the time or can’t do it first thing in the morning? Consider pulling while you’re in the shower.

3. FULVIC MINERAL COMPLEX

Benefits: Nourishes teeth and gums from the inside out while also boosting electrolytes/hydration and detoxing liver. Fulvic acid provides bioavailable forms of trace minerals, macro minerals, naturally occurring vitamins, amino acids and organic acids to every cell. Learn more

How to: Add 5 to 18 drops of FMC to your morning glass of filtered water along with a big twist of lemon and a pinch of sea salt (such as Himalayan Salt). Powerful way to detox and rehydrate.

Morning & Night

4. MINERAL TOOTHPASTE & BAMBOO TOOTHBRUSH

Benefits: Our Mineral Toothpowder helps control bad bacteria, gently cleans and supports remineralization with bioavailable minerals. Our Dr. Bass inspired Toothbrush features a bristle layout designed to reach under the gums and the smaller handle allows for more gentle precision. A key to preventing and controlling gum disease is brushing around and under the gum line where bacteria and plaque accumulate.

How to:  Wet the toothbrush and shake off any excess water. Dip the top half of your toothbrush in the powder (you don't need much).

Brush gently at a 45-degree angle using a light circular motion, paying close attention to getting under the gum line. (This is known as The Bass Method — for a good video see here.)

5. INFUSED BLACK FLOSS

Benefits: Physically removes plaque, bacteria and debris at the gum line and in between teeth while delivering essential oils (bad bacteria fighters) and fulvic acid (trace minerals). Not flossing has been linked to a host of diseases — and not only in the mouth.

How to: Using approximately 14 - 18” of floss, gently draw it against the side of each tooth, with a motion to draw debris away from the gum. Advance to a clean section of floss before inserting.
