Adventures in tooth chips


Well, I purchased the above tooth chips from Rose of Sharon Acres back before Christmas. The description of them in the listing made a lot of sense. Also, since it is handmade, I know the ingrediants that are used to make it, I know where it is being made, unlike the stuff on the grocery shelves. Not to mention the benefit of the lack of expensive, landfill filling packaging.
So, since I bought these back before Christmas, I bet you are wondering why I am just now getting around to reviewing them. Well, I have to admit, the thought of putting soap in my mouth kind of goes against a lot of deep seeded dislikes... like the taste of soap in my mouth... or at leat the thought of it. But, I finally decided I was being silly and tried these.
So, I followed the directions and found out soap foams up very easily with a tooth brush. It was simple to get a good sudsing and a thorough clean. I rinsed three times like the directions said. I must admit, the taste was definitely not "oh, yum, cinnamon!" but it also was definitely not "oh, I think I am going to be sick", it just kind of tasted soapy with a not so bad taste of cinnamon on top. So, I figure for all the benefits I am gaining, a not so great taste is really not that big of a deal. I am liking the tooth chips!! Definitely giving these a thumbs up! They come in a variety of flavors, with or without neem oil.

OMG, I can't believe you tried them!!! I've blogged about them before and I LOVE them! They've literally saved my teeth and my sister's and my whole family is using them now! Once you use them for a while, you really do get used to the taste and before long, you'll be ready to try the bolder flavors!!! I'm about to order the tea tree with neem! WISH ME LUCK! LOL

XOXO

Thanks for the insight on the not trimming the roses yet. I haven't trimmed mine for a couple years. Last time I cut them all down (I have 26 bushes) to about 10 inches, but now they are about 4 feet to 5 feet tall. I like your idea of just letting them grow until next year!

Wow. I had never ever heard of tooth chips. The name of it "tooth chips" actually scare me somewhat. Ha.

But sounds interesting and I'm definitely up for trying new things. Thanks for sharing :)

I too have toyed around with the thought of trying them, but had never heard anyone talk about them besides the person selling them. This was good to read, maybe I'll just have to give them a shot. Thanks.
