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.
