Fat is where it's at, yo. We health-seeking folks have learned that it's okay to eat good animal fats, enjoying that richness and bounty. But have you considered the "fat-free" menace that still resides in your medicine cabinet? Mouthwash! That astringent potion could be overly harsh on your gums and chompers. The Dirt is here to save your mouth with some luxurious herb-infused Oil Pulling Mouthwash. That's right. Swish with this heady elixir and you'll never want to see that medicinal bottle of amber again.
Your soon-to-be-healthy mouth is screaming for this. An all-natural mouthwash that can improve your gums, freshen your breath, and NOT kill all the good bacteria that live in your pie hole. You see, traditional mouthwash is a little bit like antibiotics—everything dies. Bad, good, neutral: all are victims of the alcohol and astringent-powered bottle of amber (or green).
Don't feel bad: you were just trying to do the right thing. Here's the right thing you are doing: flossing. Keep that up. But for the path to even better oral health, switch to a gentle toothbrush and a natural toothpaste or powder. Then finish up, if needed, with an oily swish that is remarkably fresh and simple.
This mouthwash is called Luscious Rose, Clove & Mint Oil Pulling Mouthwash and it's made by The Dirt. Here's what they say about it.
"This excellent elixir is an oil pull & a mouthwash. Want fresh breath? Gargle a gulp for a stint to fend off the funk with clove & mint. Invest in your oral best! Savor a swig with glee to exile toxins with oils of clove & sesame. Rally for a stroll down makeout alley, or embark on a trek to dislodge bacterial drek, our oil pulling mouthwash is the secret sauce that'll have you saying, 'dang, this stuff is boss!' "
The Dirt is changing the face of mouthcare, with a mouthful of awesome products to explore. Pair with their Toothpowder or MCT Coconut Oil Toothpaste and a Copper Tongue Scraper for a super-fresh mouth that will thrill everyone around you.
Featuring: MCT Coconut Oil, Sesame Oil, Essential Oils of Peppermint, Cardamom, Clove, Tea Tree, Turmeric, and Rose, Grass-Fed Ghee, Hexane-free Stevia Extract, Natural Menthol & Rosemary extract.
First, shake well. All that goodness needs a bit of agitation to get ready for your mouth. Open the lovely bottle and take a small swig. To get some awesome breath-cleaning action, swish for 1-3 minutes (take THAT, listerine challenge!). However, you can up the ante and the benefits by doing a full oil-pulling by swishing for up to 20 minutes. YOU CAN DO IT! True story: while writing this I swished for exactly 19 minutes. Woo!
When done, spit into the trash. Yes, really. This is oil and you don't want that down your drain. Also, don't swallow. Those essential oils are essential to this formula but not so good on the tummy.
Here's how Shannon, the Founder, describes the origins of The Dirt:
"The Dirt Paleo Personal Care was founded to start a revolution.
We were not satisfied with the natural product lines on the market, many a 'green washed' to look much safer than they actually are and most use soy or corn byproducts which are cheap and unnecessary fillers. We demand more!
All of our products are Soy Free, Corn Free, Gluten Free, Grain Free, Cruelty Free and Natural. We don't use fillers, ever! Our essential oil blends are formulated to preform not just smell good (Sorry other guys). Everything about our product blends is intentional... and awesome. Because, why should your healthy lifestyle stop at your plate? Fix your face! The dirt is 100% natural 200% kick-ass."
SOME of our products are vegan. Being a company based on paleo lifestyle guidelines we feel there are certain animal products that are too beneficial to leave out such as organic bees wax and ghee. We are VERY concerned about the well being of our animal friends and only use cruelty free products from suppliers who care about their animals. On that note we beg you, please only buy organic honey! Read about the plight of our bee friends by doing a few good internet searches.
Shelf life varies by product but our minimum shelf life is 6 months from date of purchase. Remember, all of our products are as natural as possible so keep them from sun, and refrain from letting them become warm to keep shelf life long.
