I've recently been reading a lot about about Ayerveda- an ancient form of eastern medicine. I read the books, took the Dosha test (I'm Pitta with an unhappy Vata- eek), and bought the things I needed to balance that shit out! Toothpaste was not exactly on the list of recommendations- it was more like ghee (clarified butter), massage oil, incense. But, I'm an all or nothing girl when it comes to new discoveries, so toothpaste went straight into the shopping cart.
It tastes like licorice and foams up like normal toothpaste. My teeth feel clean and I'm not nervous about using it since I understand everything on the ingredients list. Très importante- unlike the majority of products in my daily routine, this one goes straight into my mouth.
