Swish and Spit
Many people are surprised when I talk about Myrrh regrowing gums. Many people, even dentists, do not know that it is actually possible. David Hoffman, the well known medical herbalist, recommends Myrrh for this very purpose. Here at Haven, we put it in Swish and Spit and also in Fancy Fangs (our toothpaste). This powerful swish-and-spit formula kills bacteria, cleans in hard-to-reach places, reverses gum disease, and can facilitate the regrowth of gum tissue. This formula is loved by holistic dentists and doctors in the Columbus area!
If you are using this rinse for an active infection, disease, or receding gums, we suggest using at least twice daily until the bottle is gone (and picking up a tin of our Gum Treat). If you are using this as maintenance, using the rinse several times a week will suffice. This is sold as a CONCENTRATE. You must dilute with an equal amount of water before swishing.
Swish and Spit comes in a 12 ounce bottle (which makes 24 ounces).
Ingredients (locally sourced whenever possible): Apple Cider Vinegar*, Water, Grape Brandy, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Essential Oils of Tea Tree*, Myrrh*, and Mint* (*indicates organic)
How to Use: We sell our rinse as a concentrate- meaning that one bottle makes twice as much rinse as packaged. Shake well to combine the two separated liquids before pouring out a small amount (say, a tablespoon). Add an equal amount of water to the cup and use this to swish.
Keep in the mouth for as a long as possible (then spit, don't swallow) until your liquid is gone.
This product stimulates the salvary glands, so you may feel the need to spit a few times more after being done. If your gums were bleeding at all, you will see small bits of coagulated blood in the sink when you spit. These will lessen over time with regular use.
