Does anyone know what essential oils are in Toothsoap? I found a lady here that makes homemade soap, and I've tried using it like Toothsoap, but it has comfrey in it. Ever taste comfrey? You don't want to. Ivory soap tastes better, let me tell ya! If anyone has a list of the essential oils, i'm sure I can find a soap that is similiar in her catalog.
thanks!

My jar just says "pure essential oil" - doesn't say what kind.

IMO ivory soap tastes a bit milder than toothsoap. I did use it faithfully for many months though after I got used to the taste.

Vanity has me using a *regular* whitening brand now. :

Hi Mamas,
I'm sooo thnakful for this thread here's our situation........

Ahhh I just noticed that DD who is 15 M has a weird dark line under her front tooth (only on one, not the other)

DD has NEVER had sugar or fruit juice.......Only boobie and water.....Never a bottle......What is it? Should I be concerned? Ok and we have well water no flouride etc.....

I don't really look forward to taking her to a dentist as they just want to fill or who knows what....She doesn't seem to be bothered by it as she sometimes will let me brush.....Ahh those toddlers and brushing!

Anyone have advice?????

I haven't had time to read all 11 pages but where can I start for her healing, please!

Thanks!

Actually I can't order more toothsoap due to financial issues. I started to play. A woman down at the farmer's market makes soaps from sappon. coco oil and essential oils. I had one of hers (lavendar oatmeal) and rubbed my brush on it then put my finger over a bottle of peppermint essential oil and rubbed that over the top of my toothbrush. I liked it much better than the toothsoap. The peppermint has a burning sensation that didn't bother me, but might be a bit much for kiddos. I wouldn't do this with dd. I asked the soap maker to make me a basic bar with a bunch of peppermint and clove essential oil. I may have asked her to put in too much as both cause a burning sensation to oral mucosa. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Since all mammal milk contains the X Factor, including human, goat's must too.
Is this source still working for you? And how do you get it up to our neck of the woods.

And of course it had to be the Amish

HTH.
So this is any/all seafoods? And they're important b/c of the X Factor? I seem to have suddenly become quite allergic to fish (food poisoning like reaction the last 4 times I ate 4 different kinds, when no one else that ate the same fish got sick). Guess I'd better see if shellfish are ok, and start liking it.

Yes dairy/meat/eggs, but shhhhh... I have a new source of goat's milk near me now.

The PA farmer sends the order up on his mushroom truck some of the time (apparently he's a big supplier of mushrooms!) Sometimes he just ships DHL. There are several co-ops now organized by a couple diff. PA farmers. There's gotta be some in your state with all that land, you having a hard time finding it?

yes ... the Amish. :

Carly, seafood is an option for some who need another source than raw dairy. If seafood doesn't work for you, don't forget that some cultures had limited seafood, if any. Dh just does not enjoy seafood, so we don't get it much in our house. Each family has to find it's way. We're discussing it as another option, but not a requirement.

I get my goat butter in NH, but it is not raw. And I would LOVE LOVE LOVE some raw stuff, but can't find it in VT? Are your PA farmer just shipping to you guys, or do they have a whole New England market?

Just CT and MA right now I think. He doesn't have butter very often though, too high a demand for milk. I usually use Meyenburg or the really expensive French stuff with the goat on the label, forget name, but both pasteurized. We have raw goat now, he had extra and surprised me, it's more than twice price of cow butter.

And it takes a whole hell of a lot of milk to make butter. There is so very lil' cream in it. I haven't seen the Meyenburg, but the french stuff is what we get in NH ($7 each). LMK if you find of any fancy raw goat butter heading north

So, should I be giving my 2 month old CLO? If so, how much and how? :

Thanks!

LOL!
From your siggy, I see you are nursing, right? You don't need to give your 2 month old anything but mama milk. You, on the other hand, should be taking CLO. If you have all the above mentioned supplements in your diet, it will appear in your milk. WHEN you start your baby on solids, then you can think about giving them CLO.
have you read through the whole thread? If not, start from the beginning. There is a ton of really good information, both for curing, and for preventative measures. I'm pretty sure there is a link about CLO in there

I guess I should have read more of the thread! I am currently taking CLO and had throughout my pregnancy. Thanks for your response!
post #238 of 861
i have almost finished reading this entire thread it has taken me a while and there is so much information...it is sort of overwhelming. i have recently put my son on CLO we but the Nordic Naturals berry keen. reading all this has given me great new ideas to try. he recently had to get eight crowns under general anesth. i don't ever want to do that again. it all started with small pits in his teeth that did not have decay and then one day they were full of decay or atleast that is how it seemed...overnight. i have done a lot of changing our diet...it is still evolving especially after visiting the WAP website. He is now also taking Calcarea Phos. tablets twice a day. taking CLO. taking Vit C (sodium ascorbate..is this a good kind?) drinking small amounts of green tea (has fluoride im thinking of not giving him this). Im still nursing so i bought prenatal vitamins (which im now thinking about not taking)...cal/mag/zinc suplements...and fish oil tablets(i just exchanged those for CLO)...im looking for a source of raw milk in Louisiana or Northwest Florida. I also bought some toothsoap...im open to any more suggestions. Im not happy with our dentist. this is the third one we have seen. he is pushing fluoride on us big time and i refuse to do it. he gave me a tube of 1.1% fluoride and told me to brush my 17 month old's teeth with it. he also said my night nursing was the cause of the decay...im furious about this but told him id rather all my son's teeth rot out than stop giving my child what he needs when he needs it. So me still breastfeed on demand. we are also trying to brush alot but i usually have to sit on him to brush his teeth.

The farmer seems like a good one and I am seriously considerring visitting the farm to check it out. My only concern is the cost is so high, is $14 a gallon for milk average price? How do you afford it?
That seems really high to me...we normally pay $6 gallon for our raw cow's milk.....actually, right now, our regular farmer is holding off on giving us more milk (her cow's aren't producing because of the extreme heat) so we're getting milk for the next couple of weeks from another farmer who has a lot of extra milk, and it's only going to be $5 gallon....and only $4/lb for raw butter!!!! I wish we had the $$ to stock up at that price!
post #240 of 861
We're getting raw goat milk, which is usually much more expensive than raw cow milk, for $6/gallon. My friends are getting raw cow for $4/gallon IIRC. We live in VT though and are surrounded by farms. What is your area like? Probably cheaper to just house & feed a cow at that price.
