I've been brushing my teeth just like Freelee since I became 811. In other words, I brush my teeth only with a soft toothbrush and water.
Still, I'm wondering if there is anything I can use to attain good-smelling breath (in a natural 811-lfrv way, of course).
^^If anyone knows of anything appropriate for that, please let me know. :)
Put a few pinches of baking soda on your tongue and swish it around vigorously for a minute or so then spit it out and rinse with water. Also tongue scraping helps.
After following a lfrv diet for only a short period of time, your breath will smell good without you doing anything else - even first thing in the morning.
Thanks Nate and Dangermouse. :)
Try eating garlic :P
Do you swish out your mouth with water after every meal? If all else fails, maybe nibble on a mint leaf?
Coincidentally, I was looking for the same and came across this post in one of my favourite blogs for practical implementation of natural hygiene : http://blog.krya.in/2012/04/jaws4/
There is an awesome recipe provided for making your own vegan dental powder for brushing your teeth along with other tips that have helped the blogger more than anything conventional.
