The Benefits of Herbal Dental Care Products: Using Ancient Herbs for Oral Health
Dental Herb Company uses the power of essential oils and organically grown herbal extracts in its professional strength herbal toothpastes and dental mouthrinses to promote and maintain optimal health. In addition, their formulas relieve gum inflammation while helping to rebuild connective tissue and neutralize bad breath.
Their essential oils are distilled liquids from flowers, leaves, bark, stems, roots, scrubs and trees. The effectiveness of the oils lies in their exceptional ability to penetrate human tissue and provide therapeutic benefits. The essential oils are absorbed deep into the gums killing bacteria, repairing damaged tissue, relieving pain and enhancing circulation.
The essential oils:
Red Thyme – The oil from this herb has been used extensively in medicine as a powerful antiseptic and disinfectant. Additionally, its antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and stimulating properties help treat oral inflammation and infection, making it a powerful additive to herbal products.
Cinnamon Bark – The high aldehyde content of this oil makes it a strong antimicrobial and antiseptic. High is tannins, cinnamon bark is an astringent, which in turn provides valuable benefits. Astringents contract, firm and strengthen oral tissue, reduce surface inflammation and irritation, and create a protective barrier from infection. Cinnamon oil is widely recognized as a painkiller and has long been used to soothe toothaches.
Eucalyptus – Indigenous to Australia, eucalyptus has one of the most widely recognizable aromas. It boosts antibacterial, antifungal, antiseptic and stimulating properties, which boost circulation and speed up the healing process. It is ideal for combating oral infection and mouth ulcers.
Lavender – Widely used for its healing properties, this oil comes from the highly aromatic lavender flower. It offers antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antiseptic and stimulant properties in natural dental remedies, making it a strong ally for good health. Lavender is effective against bad breath, helps heal damaged tissue, and provides soothing relief from mouth pain. Its pleasant aroma is also a powerful sedative which helps to calm the nervous system and decrease stress. While this may not seem relevant to mouth care, emotional stress is strongly linked to gum disease, because it impairs immune function and lowers the body’s natural defenses.
Peppermint – The oil from this plant provides antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antimicrobial, antiseptic, sedative and stimulant properties. While peppermint flavoring is one of the most common additives used in commercial toothpastes and mouthwashes, the majority of mouth care products do not contain the essential oil itself. Rather than using essential oils as active ingredients, the majority of mouth care products use synthetic derivatives. When real peppermint essential oil is used in natural care products it offers protection from oral infection, pain relief, and enhanced blood circulation.
The Herbal Extracts:
Echinacea – This herb is best known for helping the body to fight off microbial infections. It is antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and is an immunomodulator, which reacts with and aids the immune system. Studies have shown Echinacea to be effective in preventing infection, repairing damaged tissue and regenerating connective tissue.
Gota kola – Used as a medicine for its healing properties, gotu kola has been shown to stimulate blood vessel growth in connective tissue, stimulate wound healing, and act as a powerful anti-inflammatory.
