You really don't even need to buy one though, ya can make your own. Good way is to heat up some water with cinammon, then add sea salt, boom- organic mouth wash. Use mouthwash and flossing before brushing, then after brushing rinse well again. For toothpaste I use organic kiss my face with aloe. Yeah sounds gay haha, but gotta do what ya gotta do

i've used dentyl active before (with the two different layers of mouthwash) and it has definitely broke me out around the mouth because as soon as i stopped, my skin around my mouth was fine.
its quite disturbing how many additives are in a simple thing like mouthwash that you don't even think about.
avoiding gluten, tomatoes, caffeine, sodium, citrus fruits, apples and soya.

If only I could manage to work full time and make sure I get all of those everyday!
Firstly, I want to say that since I started taking D3 on your recommendation, my skin has become 99% clear. Of course there could be a lot of other factors involved but I am super happy with the results.
Secondly, I used to go to yoga classes every week (loved them, the teacher is amazing) but they are too expensive... I really want to do it at home but have found that reading the moves from a book makes the whole thing not at all fluid or relaxing like the classes were. Do you have any tips?
I was actually looking for a video on sleeping the other day and came across this. There are a ton of full length videos on their channel as well as in the suggestion on the side from other users.

Herbal teas and cutting out gluten have helped tremendously for me. A multivitamin and probiotics are good additions to the diet as well. Topically, use the most natural (even homemade) products possible. Raw honey makes a great antibacterial mask.
