Products in my natural dental hygiene routine

Products in my natural dental hygiene routine

I’ve discussed many topics on the blog, but I do not believe that I have ever really shared the things that are a part of my dental hygiene routine.

By the way, in case you missed it, see the oral care products I use on my children. I’ve been using natural toothpaste for as long as I can remember, and I have used...
