One Drop Only dental soap & tooth elixir, full of organic trace minerals, flower essences and essential oils is formulated to rebuild minerals in the tooth enamel, increase circulation in the gums and reduce bacteria in the mouth. One Drop Only is free of fluoride, sodium laurel sulfate, artificial sweeteners, abrasive agents and vegetable glycerin. Glycerin, a main ingredient in most toothpastes, is a sticky substance that coats the teeth while brushing.
In the 20 years I worked in dentistry as an RDA (general and pediatric dentistry), I have researched and experimented with different cleansing products and materials to brush my teeth with. There were new tooth- pastes and powders on the market that started to have the right ideas (no fluoride, sodium laurel sulfate etc) but still had ingredients that I didn’t want in my or my clients mouth for different reasons: Either too harsh and abrasive to the gum tissue (baking soda, hydrated silica, salt, chalk etc.) or sticky ingredients like vegetable glycerin which is in literally every toothpaste on the market. The problem with vegetable glycerin is not that it is toxic to swallow but it leaves a sticky layer behind which attracts more plaque (it is actually similar in consistency to plaque) and does not allow minerals from the saliva to penetrate back into the enamel. Every time we eat, the saliva’s ph turns acidic to assist the first step of the digestive process as we chew. After 30-40 minutes the ph of our saliva goes back to its more alkaline ph and the minerals that were drawn out of our teeth while eating will go back into the tooth structure unless a smear-layer of vegetable glycerin, like in toothpaste, prevents that process.
Harsh ingredients like baking soda and salt in its crystaline form (undiluted) are too abrasive to the gum tissue and have created much recession and actual structural damage to root surface and dentin in so many of us. Add vigorous over-brushing especially right after a meal and the situation gets worse...and all with the best of intention and follow- ing what we have been taught!
My search for a product without harsh, abrasive or toxic ingredients as well as no vegetable glycerin, ended up in creating my “ One-Drop- Only” tooth elixir because I could not find a product on the market that fulfilled all of these criteria.
“One-Drop-Only” is based on a mineral-rich soap without a foaming agent (magnesium, potassium and calcium) and with added essential oil of myrrh to bring circulation to the gum tissue, reducing pockets and inflammation.
Next I added Himalayan crystal salt dissolved in water to bring 84 trace minerals to dentin and enamel. Flower essences, like almond, snapdragon and self-heal etc. to strengthen enamel, dentin, bone and gum-tissue.
Flower essence of Jasmine to assist self-expression and issues related to imbalances of the throat and mouth. Over the years I have received feed-back from both my clients and customers as well as from the holistic dentists I have worked with: Less sensitivity, cleaner teeth, reduced pocket depth, re-mineralization of dentin and healthier looking gum tissue in general. Canker sores are disappearing....
Yes, it is a change from our habit of toothpaste and its taste: The base is a soap, its true! But worth the transition....to a healthier mouth. Please shake well; there are no synthetic stabilizers in this product and it tends to separate from the essential oils.
1-2 drops on a wet toothbrush will create a nice foam and is all that is needed. A one ounce bottle will last 2- 3 month or more.. In 6 refreshing flavors: Spearmint, Peppermint, Wintergreen, Sweet Anise/Clove, Cinnamon/Clove and Strawberry for kids up to 6 years.
Many Blessings, Well-being and Health to everyone.. Rupam
