Happy, Healthy Mouths

Merging with the Elements: AIR

Still, like air, I rise. ― Dr. Maya Angelou

As spring officially rises from the earth, we inhale a deep, slow breath and sit present in the moment experiencing the beauty this season has to offer. We hear the melodic singsong of birds, feel the coolness of spring rains, observe the blooming wildflowers in the meadows, and smell the intoxicatingly sweet scents of lilac and blossoming trees around us. This week we share how our new Mineral Microbiome Clay Complex™ collection is inspired by the natural element of Air, and how having a happy, healthy mouth is essential for enjoying those breaths you take.

Not only does taking a deep breath of air feel amazing it literally offers you life. Breathing promotes mindfulness, clears emotional challenges, eases pain, cleanses your cells, elevates your mood and promotes relaxation. -- Breathe in through your nose; deep into your belly if possible, and feel your chest expand. Hold for five seconds and envision the air energy moving through your body. If you’re doing this as you read, imagine inhaling a vibrant hue of yellow or whatever color appeals to you most. Exhale your breath slowly through slightly parted lips. Some meditation practices like to imagine the air leaving your body is darker than the hue inhaled as it collects toxins along the way. You can also try visualizing icy breaths on a hot day or warm hues on a day you are chilled to emphasize the breath.

Our Mineral Microbiome Clay Complex™ collection has two very special products to keep your lips and mouth feeling refreshed and replenished from morning to night. OurSmile Teeth Cleaning Oil has natural anti-bacterial; healing properties to help keep your mouth and gums free of infections while reducing plaque build up. Those suffering from bleeding gums, gingivitis and gum disease will find this oil especially effective. Smile is a natural, organic toothpaste alternative using an almond oil base with essential oils of peppermint, spearmint and wintergreen to freshen up even the toughest breath. Spritz your toothbrush anytime of day to perk up your breath, relieve dry mouth and cleanse your precious teeth.
