One of the first “crunchy” things I did was change my toothpaste. I’ve had issues with traditional toothpaste for a while. I’m honestly not sure if it is the SLS or the fluoride in it that bothers me but one of them does-to the point where the skin inside my mouth will peel. Yup, totally gross. You can now see my reason for switching huh?
Enter: Himalaya Botanique Complete Care Toothpaste
Himalaya Botanique is a company that was started in 1930 by Mr. M. Manal, when he “saw restless elephants being fed the root of a plant to pacify them. Fascinated by the plant’s effect on elephants, he had it scientifically evaluated for human use, and thus began a worldwide legacy of herbal healthcare.” To learn more about their beginnings go HERE
Himalaya Botanique uses a blend of Neem, Pomegranate, Triphala and Xylitol. This is what they have to say about these ingredients
» Neem leaf, harvested from the ‘worlds most researched tree’

» Pomegranate is an astringent fruit extract that helps support
healthy looking gums by tightening the tissues.
» Triphala is a traditional detox formula in ancient Ayurveda
composed of the three myrobalan fruits for clean teeth and a
» Not only is Xylitol a tooth-friendly sweetener, but it has also
been clinically-studied to support good oral hygiene.

My Thoughts (and the kiddos and my dads as well)
I’ve really been enjoying these toothpastes the past few weeks. I’ve many, many a natural toothpaste and I truly like these the best. Some I’ve tried are super sweet which is off putting to me. I don’t need or want to feel like I’m eating candy when I brush my teeth. Himalaya Botanique formulated their toothpastes perfectly so that they are balanced in flavor and sweetness. The cinnamon is by far my favorite. My kiddos love the peppermint one, and my dad loves the mixed mint one. There is for sure a flavor for everyone!
My teeth feel cleaner with this toothpaste as well. Like squeaky clean. And it lasts for a long time, even through meals. I love it.
It cracks me up how much the kids love how it makes their breath smell so good. They come running up when they are done and yell “SMELL MY BREATH”! It’s adorable and their breath does smell really good!
My dad, who has never used a natural toothpaste, but also has issues with some toothpastes, decided to give it a try. I was so delighted to hear that he is really liking it!
The ONLY negative (and it’s not really negative per say) thing I have found is that it comes out of the tube super fast so the kids have a hard time controlling the amount. It would be easier if there were a flip top cap or smaller opening, but that is it.
We will be using Himalaya Botanique for the foreseeable future!
BTW….the price point for one tube is $5.99 which is a decent price and comparable to the competition.
