Scoop a small amount with a lightly wet toothbrush and gently brush teeth. Rinse out with warm water. Use in morning, after meals and before bed. You can use it with a little baking soda once a week for an extra whitening cleanse.
Notes about paste integrity:
Our toothpaste does not contain fillers or stabilizers. Because of that the coconut soap is subject to melting in temperatures over 70 degree F. This is perfectly normal and doesn’t effect the toothpaste in any manner except that it will melt and become less solid than you might want. Just simply shake it for about a minute, put it in a cool place (e.g., refrigerator) for a while to reharden it and you’ll be back to normal.
The toothpaste arrived in good shape but it has a dish-soapy taste? What may have happened is that it melted while in transit then hardened again before it arrived. Again, no problem. What happened is that the melting caused the oils and soaps to separate then just like oil and vinegar salad dressing layers were created and it hardened like that. Imagine just the vinegar without the oil on your salad; yuk! So, just put the toothpaste in a warm environment (maybe an oven on it’s lowest temperature setting; not a microwave) to allow the paste to re-melt. Once it has vigorously shake it then put it in the refrigerator to harden. There’s some work but your oral care is worth it.
Our toothpaste is USDA certified organic (which you already know) but the ingredients are also food-grade. So, there is nothing in there that would hurt a child. The question; however, is the lack of fluoride. Many public water supplies add fluoride which is controversial in itself but we at Made Simple consciously decided to not include fluoride given the nature of our product. There are so many more components to healthy teeth (and body) that adding more chemicals isn’t the answer.
We considered creating a more “kid friendly” line of toothpaste meaning it would be sweeter to the taste (maybe with honey) but haven’t because we honestly believe that getting kids to brush their teeth shouldn’t be about getting a treat; so to speak. Starting with something natural at an early age might break that all too common habit of thinking that toothpaste should taste like candy and must kill instead of enrich the already anti-bacterial agents in your mouth.
