How to improve your oral health with OraMd!

Back in May, I had a dental appointment for an exam/cleaning.  My usual Dentist was out of town, but the one I saw that day remarked that my gums, lips and insides of my cheeks were showing signs of an allergic reaction, and she believed it could be due to SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) ~ which is in just about every toothpaste & mouthwash out there.  I asked what I could use that doesn't contain SLS.  She said Sensodyne was fine, but there were not many options for me that were SLS free.   I really don't like the flavor of Sensodyne, so I left the appointment feeling really bummed out, even though she gave me several tubes of it to use.  :(

Fast forward to the next week ~ I got an email asking if I'd like to try an all-natural, liquid toothpaste/mouthwash/breath freshener. OraMD is a Sodium Lauryl Sulfate-free, Fluoride-free productm comprised of 100% pure botanical oils ~ almond, spearmint and peppermint.  Since I was looking for something exactly like this product, you know I agreed to try it out and share it here with y'all!  

When it arrived, I didn't get started on it right away, as this summer has been crazy.  Finally things calmed down around the beginning of July, and I started using OraMD consistently.  The flavor is a little different, it was odd/strong tasting, at first. It even burned a bit.  But I kept using it and I'm so glad I did!  I noticed with the first use how clean my teeth felt! We are talking walking out of the dentist office clean! And it's only gotten better with time!  I use Sensodyne (still trying to use it all up, lol) in the morning, and OraMD at mid-day and bedtime. Each bottle has 400 drops - so it will last you for a while!  

Now that I have used it for about a month, I really enjoy the flavor - it is a true mint flavor,  from the botanical spearmint & peppermint oils.   And the best part is that my mouth is doing much better now that I've eliminated the SLS out of my oral hygiene routine!  OraMD is something I really love! I don't use much at all when I brush, just a couple drops, so I still have a good bit left in my little glass bottle.  David has tried it too - he didn't love the flavor at first, but he got used to it, too.   When I order more, he will get his own bottle! 

I find it so amazing that this little bottle of OraMD takes the place of three products! Use a few drops on your toothbrush for brushing.  Add a few drops to water to use as mouthwash, and apply a few drops to your tongue as a breath freshener!  Love multi-purpose products like this - saves me money, time and counter space, lol! Not to mention you are not having to buy three products when you shop! And you don't even have to leave the house to get OraMD!  And the fact that it is pure and natural makes me feel happy! This is a product I feel good about my family using!

Try this surprisingly healthy frozen snack for your kids!

I love pinterest, as it gets me thinking about different recipes and crafts! I don't always follow the recipes or directions given, just because I like to use what I have onhand, instead of having to make a grocery run.  Yesterday, I wanted a cold, refreshing snack for my son after his first day at camp. I knew he'd been outside much of the day in the heat and humidity so he would be ready for a snack with some protein and one that would cool him off, too!

I remembered seeing something like this on pinterest, but just kind of winged it, instead of looking it back up for the exact proportions.  I knew I'd add some coconut oil to the chocolate chips to help make it a hard shell and that worked perfectly!

Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Bites

one large banana, cut into thin slices
natural peanut butter
coconut oil - 1 1/2 tsp
1/2 - 3/4 c chocolate chips

Put a dab of peanut butter onto half of the banana slices, then top with another slice, making "sandwiches".

Place in freezer for about 30 minutes to set.   Remove from freezer.

 Place chocolate chops and coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl.

Microwave for 1 - 1 1/2 minutes.

  Stir well.  I used a spoon to dip the sandwiches in the chocolate, then place them on wax paper, return to freezer until ready to serve.

David gave it a thumbs up, and he's not a big fan of bananas! Poor kiddo was exhausted after camp today.  This will be a nice, easy snack to make for the remainder of summer - I'm happy because he's getting fruit, protein, and healthy fat (coconut oil) all in one!
