Tooth Tonic was created to help protect teeth and gums against damaging bacteria. It is an alternative to toothpaste and uses no toxic chemicals, harsh abrasives or sugar. It is made exclusively from powerful essential oils in a base of black sesame seed oil. Vitamin E oil acts as a natural preservative. The powerful healing properties of the essential oils help nourish and support teeth and can help with bleeding, swollen and painful gums. Due to the tissue repairing properties of some of the oils, receding gums have a better chance of repairing themselves. All ingredients have been carefully chosen for their strong anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties. The product can create a mild tingling sensation around the mouth. It lasts only a couple of minutes and is normal. However, should you have any severe reaction, please stop using. Observe caution with young children: residue left on fingers can find its way into eyes. If this occurs, flush eyes thoroughly with milk or vegetable oil. This product is unsuitable for pregnant women and children under 13.
