Tooth Suds Breath Fresh - Peppermint, Birch and Spearmint
May help reduce bacteria, infection and improve the sense of taste and reduce halitosis (bad breath). Author of Essential Oil Safety, Robert Tisserand says: It is common to use Birch/Wintergreen in a mouthwash or toothpaste, and very small amounts may be ingested. As always, toxicity is in relation to dose.
Tooth Suds Plague Defense Enhance - Birch, Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus radiata, Rosemary ct verbenone
May help reduce bacteria and infection, abscess. Dr. Hull requested that we add Birch, which may enhance bone of the jaw and help tighten loose teeth. Author of Essential Oil Safety, Robert Tisserand says: It is common to use Birch/Wintergreen in a mouthwash or toothpaste, and very small amounts may be ingested. As always, toxicity is in relation to dose.
(The name, Plague Defense refers to HEO's blend of oils. We realize this word is very similar to the word 'plaque,' which is what we want to avoid on teeth, but the similarity is merely coincidental.) The Plague Defense blend is formulated to help us avoid illness as one would want to avoid the "plague."
Contains NO added glycerin, artificial sweeteners, silicates, fluoride or stabilizers.
(Glycerin, as a natural by-product of the soap-making process, is not harmful to oral care, whereas added glycerin inhibits remineralization.)
1/4 oz sample in polypropylene plastic lip balm container. PP plastic is FDA approved for food storage and considered one of the safest plastics for re-use and hot liquids.
Brush teeth with a very small amount of Tooth Suds. Avoid letting the suds reach the sensitive taste buds on the back part of the tongue (which seem to be the most "offended" by the taste).
If the Suds liquify (which it may if in warm climates), simply stir, then place in the refrigerator or a cool place to allow it to return to a more gel-like texture.
Grapefruit seed extract fights viruses, bacteria and supports the immune system. (Free of synthetic chemical preservatives.)
Xylitol is noted in dental research to prevent cavities, reduces plaque and “starves” micro-organisms, allowing the mouth to remineralize damaged teeth.Our pharmaceutical grade Xylitol is derived from a renewable source of hardwood Birch trees, not corn. It is guaranteed GMO free and produced in the USA. (Xylitol can be harmful to dogs.)

A recent report suggests consumption of xylitol may help control oral infections of Candida yeast; in contrast, galactose, glucose, and sucrose may increase proliferation.

Gerard F. Judd, Ph.D., Chemist and Researcher
Author of, Good Teeth, Birth to Death, after reputable dental research concluded:
- Teeth remineralize when clean and brushed with a bar of soap
- Glycerine (in all tooth pastes) coats the teeth with a sticky film inhibiting remineralization.
- Bar soap does a perfect job in cleaning the teeth. The enamel thickens and becomes less sensitive.
- Gums are disinfected by brushing with bar soap. Bacteria and viruses are destroyed.
- Plaque, a poorly formed crystal stuck to the bottom on the enamel, is prevented and eventually removed by brushing with bar soap.
- Prevention of plaque retards gum pockets.
- Removal of fluoride from drinking water, pastes or gels saves the enzyme adenosine diphosphatase so it can deliver phosphate to calcium at the tooth surface, resulting in a beautiful, semi-flexible enamel.
- Plaque and receding gums disappear when soap is used for brushing and vitamin C is taken as in the Gum Rescue recipe.
A gray or translucent look is usually food stain. Typical toothpaste contains abrasives that remove food stains, but Tooth Suds doesn’t contain any abrasives, If staining is an issue, we suggest that a few times weekly you add a little baking soda, activated charcoal and/or calcium carbinate to the Tooth Suds on your toothbrush to help eliminate food stains.
1 tsp Ascorbic Acid
½ tsp Baking Soda
1 inch Water
Add the ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) and soda to the water; let fizz, and then dilute with ½-1 cup water. Drink.
The resulting SODIUM ASCORBATE is non-acid, very pure and more soluble than vitamin C. It is more reactive than ascorbic acid in building connective tissue and antibody structures and more effective in killing some viruses and bacteria. ~ Dr. Judd
For teeth that seem to be susceptible to cavities, one mom reported that a hair tissue mineral analysis showed her daughter was "extremely low on the mineral BORON. One of Boron's functions is to mineralize the teeth and keep them hard. Her level was almost a zero."
Testimonies about Tooth Suds
1. I am amazed how clean my teeth feel. My teeth feel slick for hours, even overnight. I no longer have that fuzzy mouth feeling when I wake up, which tells me that this stuff is really working.
2. My chronic bouts with mouth ulcers disappeared after consistent use of Tooth Suds and Heritage Mouthwash, and my teeth and gums are cleaner and healthier than they have ever been!
3. I don’t have any plaque buildup at all, and my gums feel tight and healthy for the first time in many years.
4. After using Tooth Suds and the Heritage Mouthwash for just a month, I had a “glowing” report from my hygienist on my teeth and gums. When I opened my mouth she said, “Wow, your gums look great! What have you been doing?” After poking around a bit, she exclaimed, “I feel guilty taking you money, I can’t find a thing to clean! Whatever you are doing, keep it up.”
5. I had very sensitive teeth and inflamed gums before using Tooth Suds, but within days, the sensitivity disappeared and my gums feel better than ever!
6. Sensitivity in my back molar disappeared after one day of using Tooth Suds!
7. Tooth Suds Evaluation: I had just had my teeth cleaned 2 days before purchasing the Tooth Suds, and so my teeth were feeling very clean. I started using the Tooth Suds and was not that impressed; it seemed the same as any other toothpaste. I used it for one week, and then I left for a week trip, and since I was flying, I left the Tooth Suds at home. Within a day, my teeth felt so 'dirty' - I could not believe it. No matter how long I brushed my teeth, I just couldn't get them to feel clean. As soon as I returned home, I started using the Tooth Suds again, and within a day, my teeth were feeling clean again. I thank you for creating the Tooth Suds and never want to use anything else! - M. H.
8. I wanted to let you know that I had a good result with the Tooth Suds (Plague Defense). The sensation on a couple of teeth disappeared after a couple months of use. The X-ray in January showed a shadow, and I have not had it X-rayed since the improvement. - A.B.
9. I had tremendous pain from a cavity of some type, and I used the Tooth Suds and Mouthwash on it continually for about 3 days. It has given me no more problems since. Now my whole family uses the Tooth Suds and Mouthwash faithfully. - S.L.
10. I love using the Tooth Suds and mouthwash you recommended! Two of my children suffered from bad breath (or rather WE suffered from their bad breath LOL), but I'm thrilled to say that they love brushing their teeth with the suds and the bad breath is totally gone! I've tried so many things, but this is the only thing that has worked! Thank you!
11. I have to tell you how amazing your Tooth Suds are! A family member let me try this product, and from the beginning I liked the fresh taste it gave my mouth and the long-lasting 'clean feel' it imparted to my teeth. This is so different from any toothpaste I've used, and believe me, with life-long issues with sensitive teeth and bleeding gums, I've tried them all!! Not thinking much about it, I began using the Plaque Defense Tooth Suds. For the first time in my life, I began to look forward to brushing my teeth, using it consistently twice a day. One morning, just 3 weeks into using your Tooth Suds, I suddenly realized my gums weren't bleeding at all when I brushed my teeth. And, unlike usual, I couldn't feel even one sensitive spot anywhere in my mouth. My teeth and gums are feeling 'strong and normal,' for the first time in years! Then recently, for about 10 days, I was doing a lot of traveling and in a hurry I took along regular toothpaste. Wouldn't you know, in that short period of time, my gums starting acting up again! Hallelujah! Blessings to you for such a simple and health-building product. I would recommend your Tooth Suds to anyone and am about to pass some on to another family member. I hope to never be without this product again! - L.S.
12. At my last dental cleaning, the dentist wanted to know what I was brushing with. I told him the Plague Defense Tooth Suds and he couldn't believe it! My teeth have never felt cleaner. I had almost no plaque and it has cured my husband's bad breath. The dentist wants to try it on a patient that has periodontal disease! - K.L.
13. Your Tooth Suds product is an answer to prayer! About a year ago, I found myself with a red rash all around my mouth, but I didn't connect it with the toothpaste I was using. That had never happened before in all of my 61 years. A health consultant at a health food store suggested three toothpastes that worked well for him when he had the same type of reaction. He said that if those three toothpastes failed, then baking soda was the only other alternative that he knew about. Sure enough, I ended up being at the end of my rope, which is when God does what He does in a spectacular way! He pointed me to Tooth Suds! Thankfully, when I went to a new dentist to begin the process of removing all mercury from my fillings--did you know that mercury is more poisonous than lead? -- he he told me that a friend of his uses Tooth Suds and loves it. He gave me your information so I could order it. I am so very happy Tooth Suds is made up of all natural ingredients! I am well on my way to total recovery! - D.J.
14. Six months ago at my dental cleaning the hygienist said that I had developed some very deep pockets and that I must floss more often. I had been in the habit of flossing approximately twice a week. Knowing that pockets are very serious and having read the blog post about Tooth Suds, I decided to give it a try. I also committed to floss at least 6 times a week until my next cleaning. A month ago I had my cleaning and the hygienist reported that my pockets are all gone and my gums were the pinkest and healthiest looking she had ever seen them. My teeth feel so clean after using this product. I really miss it when I travel and have to use travel size tube toothpaste. I just ordered my second jar of Tooth Suds, the first one lasting well over 6 months. Great product. - Karen
15. I am almost finished with my first jar of Tooth Suds. I went for my teeth cleaning today and was anxious to hear my hygienist's comments. I asked her how the plaque and tartar was, and she said, "I'm having a hard time finding any"! I was very excited and then told her what I had been using. I gave her your card, and the whole office is interested, so I hope they try some and recommend it to patients! - L.P.
16. Endurance Tooth Suds helped my teeth hold firmer!!! I LOVE that stuff!!! Tried the Plague Defense Tooth Suds this time...another favorite!!! ;^D Thank You Heritage Essential Oils!!! - Amethyst
17. [This is not a testimony about Tooth Suds, but might be helpful information] My daughter is prone to cavities and has two now that need filling. We eat clean, and don't do sugar. Are there any essential oils that can reverse these cavities? She has extremely deep grooves in her molars. We did a hair analysis which showed that my daughter is EXTREMELY LOW on the mineral BORON. One of it's functions is to mineralize the teeth and keep them hard. Her level was almost a zero!" - Dana
[One of HEO's customers has a business providing Hair Mineral Testing: www.hairmineraltesting.com The lab that does the testing for them tests 42 minerals and toxic elements. They give a full color report for the patient and a doctor's report to take to your Naturapath if you choose too. There is an explanation given for every element that is not in the correct range.]
18. Wow, I love the Tooth Suds! For the last several years I've been using the *only* corn-free toothpaste I could find (Squigle), but I wanted to use Tooth Suds to help settle my teeth after getting my braces off. It's awesome! - Sharon
19. I just got back from my 6-month dentist check up. I ordered a sample of Plague Defense Tooth Suds a few weeks ago and started using it. I felt like my teeth were smoother, and where I usually would get build up on my back molars, it was smooth too. I went to my check up and asked her what she thought about the build up on my teeth, because she usually scraps them for a while. She told me there was nothing on my teeth to clean off and was amazed! Very affirming. - Staci
20. The first couple of times I used Tooth Suds I gagged too, but after 3 days in a row, it didn't bother me anymore and my teeth felt amazing!! I am one who really does not like brushing my teeth, but I am loving the Tooth Suds! - Dawn
21. We've been using Tooth Suds for about 6 months. Today my husband went to the dentist, and the hygienist told the dentist, "He has the healthiest mouth I have seen in a long time." - Sally
22. This company is so awesome. I am so grateful I found you! I was so excited to receive my full size Tooth Suds, that I brushed my teeth right away. I must say that I will never use toothpaste again and I will give out samples to everyone I know. This coming someone who hates to brush their teeth! - Dawn
23. I had a life long battle with canker sores. I tried L-lysine, but it didn't seem to help. What I discovered was that my toothpaste seemed to aggravate them. Sodium Laurel sulfate is in 95% of regular toothpastes--even natural ones. It's included to make the toothpaste foam, but it also wrecks havoc with the lining of your mouth. When under stress, my resistance wanes and the outbreaks worsen, but by switching to using Tooth Suds and the HEO Mouthwash has virtually eliminated mine. - Betty
24. A positive update! Before we moved overseas late last year, I had to undergo a routine dental clearance. The dentist told me I had a cavity forming but that it wasn't necessary to fill at that immediate time. I passed on the filling and continued to use my Plague Defense Tooth Suds. Fast forward to today- I'm at my yearly dental cleaning with the new dentist (routine X-rays, the whole works) and he says my teeth are in GREAT shape. He noticed a small area where the cavity from before used to be but it has "remineralized" in his own words saying I have no need for a filling. The best part? He said to just "keep on doing" what I've been doing because I have excellent oral health. That's the best report I've ever received! - Laura
25. My daughter and I used for the first time this morning the Plague Defense Tooth Suds. Oh my!! They are terrific. We have both confirmed that after all our toothpaste is gone, we will only use this product. Wow! It is surely a grand product. As the Bible says - let the herbs be used for our food and medicine. Amen. - Dawn
26. Tooth Suds is the best product I have ever used. I love how my teeth feel so clean and my mouth fresh. Please don't ever stop making Tooth Suds! - Charlotte
27. Try the Tooth Suds. You won't be sorry. Best dental cleaning visit I ever had after only three weeks of use - the hygienist said my gums were healing and wanted to know what I was doing different. - Virginia
28. I LOVE the Tooth Suds and can tell a difference between this and regular toothpaste. I love the Tooth Suds so much more!!!! :-) - Melissa
29. My husband insisted that all our kids use Tooth Suds even though they don't like change. But now they say they love it after trying a few times, and my husband's persistence he that wasn't buying another tube of toothpaste. - Anne
30. I love Tooth Suds. I know it's healthier for a lot of reasons. I just like the way it feels and tastes. It doesn't burn my mouth with mint or cinnamon and my teeth feel super clean. - Heidi
31. The amazing reports from our hygienist speaks to the efficacy of Tooth Suds. Certainly my husband and I are never going back to nasty chemical-laden toothpaste. - Sally
32. Tooth Suds is so incredible!!!! My whole family loves it (including my two young girls), and our teeth got very squeaky clean. Thanks. and, what a brilliant idea. - Kathryn
33. My oldest (9) and I both use the PD Suds and love it. We are both prone to canker sores, and it has helped prevent them since we started using it. My youngest (6) does not like the taste, so unfortunately he is still using store bought ;-(. - Kelly
34. I used to make my own tooth powder, but I love Heritage Tooth Suds. One jar lasts a very long time. It is so worth it! - Cammy
35. WHOOO! I just had my first dental appointment since starting Plague Defense Tooth Suds. (It has been a year due to things I could not control, I go every 4 months) They were amazed! My gums were in much better shape, and she had very little plaque to scrape off. I had one area that was above a number 4, it is an area that is very hard to reach. This is quite an improvement. She said: "Whatever you are doing don't change it!!" - Sue
35. In the beginning, the texture, taste of the Tooth Suds took getting used to since it's so different than most of the "aggressive" toothpastes out there. It feels natural, but strong. For years, I had a bad taste in my mouth that wouldn't go away even when I flossed and used a strong mouthwash after brushing my teeth. After a few times using the Tooth Suds, my mouth felt neutral for the first time. No bad taste the whole day! I finished my 8oz jar and ordered another, but had to go back to a regular toothpaste before it arrived, and the old bad taste came back. - Bernice
36. At one of my teeth cleaning appointments, the dentist told me I had a spot on one of my teeth that looked like a cavity and needed to be fixed. I didn't set the appointment right away, and then I forgot. In the meantime, I ordered and started using Tooth Suds Plaque Defense every day. Six months later when I went back for another cleaning, the spot was gone, and I have had no problems since! I have told all my family about Tooth Suds! - Becky
37. I love Plague Defense Tooth Suds. I've used it for years! - Dorothea
38. I love the Tooth Suds. I have used the Suds to cure abscesses and toothaches. - Jennifer
39. I wanted to let you know that I've kept track of how long one 8oz jar of Tooth Suds lasted. I used once daily, and it lasted ONE YEAR and EIGHT MONTHS. That's very good. I'm going to clock this new jar as well to compare. Thought you might like to know. - Kathy
40. Wow, Plague Defense Tooth Suds is wonderful! I love the clean feel and shiny teeth. It's has become my favorite tooth cleaner. Thanks so much! - Dottie
41. We use the Tooth Suds (both Plague Defense and Breath Fresh), but when our little one got a cavity (due to not brushing regularly), we took her to our naturally-inclined dentist. He confirmed that she had a small cavity and suggested that we could pack it with White Oak Bark powder daily for a while to help it seal over. Sure enough, with consistent brushing with the Suds and then packing the cavity with White Oak Bark power, it sealed over and didn't need to be filled. There is still a depression where it was, but the dentist confirmed that it is no longer an active cavity. Maryann
42. Your Tooth Suds are great! Since I hadn't been to the dentist in a while, I had buildup on my teeth when I started using them. After I had been using the Tooth Suds a few weeks, I noticed that there was noticeable diminishment of the buildup on my teeth. :-) I have been very pleased with them and have continued to use them with good success. I don't think it's my imagination that my gums look a little better as well. I am so glad to have this product available! One of my sisters also has had the removal of her dental buildup using Tooth Suds, while my other sister seems to have gotten a little more. I don't know why that would be, but I am personally very fond of this product. I do have to use baking soda as you recommend once in a while to help with the food stains, (I used to use baking soda only for a while), but that is no trouble. I have found it good to use a little extra Tooth Suds and plenty of baking soda for the "whitening sessions," perhaps even brushing twice in a row. It doesn't do anything for heavy detoxification-induced brown streaks on teeth, but mine have gone away on their own. - Savannah
43. Thank you for the best quality oils and oil blends out there. There are so many fake oils out there. I can do my research in a company or an oil and still not be satisfied that I received the best oil. I never have to worry about yours. I love your tooth paste! It's the only stuff I will brush my kids teeth with. Thank you so much for your dedication to such high quality and excellence. It gives me peace of mind to know I can always go to you for quality oils. - Daniela
