They were really pleased and the hygienist said she was going to incorporate my system at home. Score one for the natural / homeopathic world...
This was my Facebook response but I thought it was too long to post so I'm blogging about it and then linking it. I hope you find this helpful or informative and really...I hope you try it. It's so great.
- a hair conditioner - my hair is too oily to begin with but it’s a good deep conditioner to use before showering sometimes; for people with dry hair, it may work better for you
- body lotion - too heavy for most parts of my body but legs and arms are ok - my skin is super sensitive
- face lotion - use a TINY amount – it almost doesn't feel like I’m using anything at first. At night, I put it around my eyes to help with wrinkles and during the day, just in my dry areas.
- for the dog, too - in her food (about a teaspoon, twice a day - she loves it), on her itchy spots (stopped the redness and itching overnight on a hot-spot she can't lick).
- we also cook with it (anything we’d use oil for like popcorn, etc.)
- I pretty much just began experimenting with it and kind of slathered it all over my life until I found how it worked for me or didn't - interesting outcomes but good for the knowledge side of things!
I get around two good swishes out of that.
Someone asked if the honey is a good idea (as it's a sweetener around your gums) what I've found in my research (and I AM NO DOCTOR so don't quote me, talk to your own practitioner) is that in small amounts the honey is even ok for diabetics (which I am not).
The mixture of honey and cinnamon is used in several natural remedies ranging from cholesterol and colds to upset stomachs / gas and skin infections. They are both highly respected and used products in the natural world and I think there's something to the bacteria / breath freshening concept here. Like I said though, you'll have to see for yourself how you feel about it.
