Test Dummies: Joyous Health Minty Fresh Toothpaste

Joyous Health Minty Fresh Toothpaste

WHY I BOUGHT IT

I wanted to alternate my typical routine of brushing my teeth with soap (more on that here), with a paste that had a baking soda base. Erin just featured Joyous Health as her Book of the Month and I wanted to learn more about it, so I checked out Joy’s website. Guess what… she has a toothpaste with a baking soda base (SCORE).

When I visited The Yoga Show last month I knew I wanted to pop by the Joyous Health booth to purchase it. Little did I know, Joy would be there in real life. She was so kind and helpful, I was going to buy the toothpaste anyways, but it made me feel extra happy that I was supporting a local business and a fellow female!

Soap Toothpaste

When I tell people I switched to using soap to brush my teeth, they cringe – and I did too when I first tried it.  I thought about how adults in movies would wash a kid’s mouth out with soap if they’d done something wrong. Not pleasant, except now I was washing my own mouth/teeth with soap to keep up with my oral hygiene.

The real reason I started brushing my teeth with soap was by total fluke. I had just moved, couldn’t figure out where the toothpaste was and remembered reading an article where Dr. Bronner’s Soap was used instead of traditional toothpaste. I tested out the method with my Kiss My Face bar soap and haven’t looked back.
