Health | Natures Healthbox

Initially when I started blogging approximately 7 months ago, I intended on covering style, beauty and health.  I have heavily concentrated on style and beauty until now, so want to incorporate more health posts on my blog. After all, me and many others agree that we want to kick start 2013 healthy!

When I heard ‘Natures Healthbox’ were launching a website today based solely on organic products, I was highly impressed by the range of things they had to offer. From supplements, to skin care and dental hygiene.

Dental hygiene enhances a person’s beauty don’t you think?! With so many sugary drinks I drink, I am always on the look out for a good toothpaste. I really would like ‘Simon Cowell’ teeth so anything that would lead to anything near that shine, I am up for 🙂 

So one of the products they had to offer and which I got the chance to review was the: 
Optima Australian Tea Tree Fresh and White Tea Tree Toothpaste 100ml. £3.98
Firstly, Tea tree oil is one of my favourites for the skin so was happy to see this Australian tea tree in the formula. Secondly, the toothpaste contains antiseptic which provides natural protection for the gums and white teeth. It is fluoride free which is sometimes advised by dentists for prevention of such things like dental fluorosis- discoloration of teeth. It ingredients are:

Aqua, Calcium carbonate, Glycerin, Hydrated silica, Mentha pipperita oil, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Sodium lauroyl sarcosinate, Aloe barbadensis, Menthol, Melaleuca alternifolia oil, Escin, Ubiquinone, Sodium hydroxymethylglycinate, Xylitol, Citric acid.

After trying out this product for a month, I have felt it does the job quite well by actually cleaning the teeth, as it should do and leaves your mouth feeling extra fresh, minty and looking a little brighter. Not a whole lot brighter in shade but by a little. I steer clear from eyes watering strong toothpastes but this is not that strong. I have never had problems with my gums, but they do feel a lot more healthy after using it for a month. I have been a long time lover of everything containing Aloe plant extract in it, so I love this even more. It is sold at a great price so I would definitely repurchase. The only down side would be, that I don’t have ‘Simon Cowell’ teeth, but I can cope with that 🙂
