Earthpaste – A Whole New Toothpaste! #Giveaway

72 Flares Filament.io 72 Flares ×

The following is a sponsored post for an item I was already using and loving.

You all may remember that I have a rule against sending my husband to the grocery store. I love his willingness, but somehow he always manages to come home with things not. on. the. list. A couple of months ago, he wondered over to Whole Foods. And wouldn’t you know that he got into a conversation with a Whole Foods employee about toothpastes, and home he came with Earthpaste in tow! What’s funny is that we were already using a natural and cheap toothpaste – my homemade version! Ha.

I had actually heard about Earthpaste before over at Keeper of the Home, so when hubs brought it home, I knew exactly what it was. I was already intrigued. The ingredients are few, and they are all natural. This I knew and already loved.

Wanna know the ingredients?

  • Purified water
  • Redmond clay. The clay is food grade and has many natural minerals in it. Benzonite clay (like that used here) is helpful for many health related issues. I’m just beginning my study on the subject, and I am amazed! You can learn more here. Look for more information on the blog about clay very soon!
  • Xylitol, a sweetener.
  • Essential oils
  • Real salt. Again, I will be posting more on this! Basically this is pure salt, in its natural form, full of minerals and all the good stuff that has been stripped from your typical table salt.
  • Tea tree oil and menthol are used in peppermint and winter green.

Well don’t you love that? I bet you know every single thing on that list! Who would’ve thought you could make a toothpaste from ingredients without long weird names?

And what I really love is that this toothpaste doesn’t contain fluoride or SLS! We hear all the time that fluoride is necessary for a healthy mouth, but honestly, from what I’ve read, I’m not so sure. Fluoride is toxic. It interferes with the immune system, puts one more at risk for cancer, causes genetic damage, contributes to arthritis… Oh and it’s banned in many many countries. Need I go on? (Source 1;  An extensive list of more sources.)

As far as SLS is concerned, it increases mouth acidity and causes membrane disruption and trauma. Scratching your head? It leads to canker sores. Yeah, ow. This was actually the #1 reason I began making my own toothpaste!

My experience with Earthpaste

We have been using Earthpaste for a little over a month now. We really love the taste!  I have only tried the peppermint and cinnamon. The peppermint has a great minty flavor that leaves my mouth feeling fresh. The cinnamon tastes cinnamon-y – think cinnamon essential oil, rather than cinnamon sticks, or if you haven’t tried the essential oil, think Trident. :) It really has a great flavor! It doesn’t leave my mouth feeling quite as fresh as the peppermint, but I think I also equate minty with freshness! My little one loves the cinnamon best!

We also love that with Earthpaste, we aren’t putting anything toxic in our bodies. I don’t get worried a bit when she immediately takes her toothbrush and swallows the toothpaste before brushing! Still working on the brushing her teeth thing!

And though Earthpaste doesn’t make any claims about this, I do think my teeth seem a little whiter since I began using it!

What about cost?

Truthfully, Earthpaste is a bit pricey. Redmond sells it for $7.99 per tube on their website. Amazon has them at about the same price when you buy it as an “add-on” item, meaning you purchase it with your $25+ free shipping order. That does save on shipping. I believe Whole Foods has Earthpaste similarly priced as well.

Why not just make your own toothpaste?

Truthfully, I do love my homemade stuff. But the problem with having a coconut oil base to anything is that in the heat, it will melt. And I live in Texas. Yep, totally a problem for a good chunk of the year. The clay base of the Earthpaste keeps it from melting, which I really like.

Plus buying toothpaste really is more convenient, so you should factor that in as well. I don’t think making my own toothpaste is all that time consuming, but if you are working or just have too much on your plate, buying toothpaste may make your life easier!

For me, I will probably rotate between Earthpaste and homemade, depending on the budget at the moment and the season! :)

My husband and I were just talking this morning about Earthpaste and about how we wanted to try either their products or some other toothpaste with clay in it. I’ve only heard good things about Earthpaste, so I’m looking forward to trying it soon! We’ve been using other natural toothpastes that cost about the same amount, but don’t give us the results we are wanting. Time to try something new. =) Thanks for hosting the giveaway!
