Can I use this on my dog?
I would ask my vet, although I can’t see why you can’t brush your dogs teeth. I recommend putting 1 drop into a tablespoon of olive oil and brushing their teeth with that mixture.
What do the dentists think?
It’s such a new product and it is alternative (holistic) so many dentists are skeptical but they cannot deny the glowing reports by their hygiene staff. I will say there is a definite interest and Dr. Estrabillo in Ancaster is carries the product and is promoting the product to his clients.

Will I have a dry mouth?
Not at all, in fact, you will produce more saliva. You detoxify your oral cavity and reset it… so to speak. It’s amazing what the body can do when you give it what it needs. My belief is that the body is starved for healthy, natural, synthetic chemical free products.

Absolutely! It makes sense that when you get rid of the germs that cause bacteria and plaque build up that your breath will be fresh and clean.
Does it need to be refrigerated?
No, this combination of oils has a very long shelf life and is good at room temperature. In fact, neem oil, which is the base, can thicken when it gets cold. The product will last for years, and minimally 2 years when you get it.
Can I make the drops come out faster?
When the bottle is full, the drops take a bit longer to come out because the volume needs to be displaced with air. We’ve timed it to approximately 12 seconds for a drop to fall out of a full bottle.
