COMPOSTABLE SILK FLOSS
Silk floss won’t compromise your oral health and it goes in your compost bin when you’re finished flossing.
I found a piece of silk left over from an old sewing project and an old silk shirt with holes in but you can also buy a small piece of silk (preferably not bleached or coloured). This piece of silk is 10 x 30 cm and I recommend that it’s around 30 cm long so that the threads are long enough. Use a couple of threads and roll them together between your fingers and then you’re good to go.
I also recommend that you apply a drop of essential oil onto you finger and glide it onto your silk floss. Essential oils that are good for oral health is clove bud, myrrh, peppermint, spearmint, cinnamon and melaleuca (tea tree) essential oil. These essential oils have antibacterial properties but won’t kill all bacteria like for example antiseptic conventional mouth washes as we know not all bacteria are bad. Essential oils tend to work to maintain balance rather than upset it, making them a much more reliable choice for oral health than harsh antiseptic formulas.

I use doTERRA essential oils because they’re food and therapeutic grade essential oils and the plants are grown in a region in which it’s indigenous and where the plants have grown naturally for thousands of years, creating the nutritive soil conditions, air quality, weather/moisture etc. These conditions as well as the extraction process are reflected in the quality of the essential oils.
You can order doTERRA essential oils HERE and they’ll be sent directly to you. Or even better, if you want to buy the oils at wholesale price (25% of retail price), you can enroll with your own account HERE. There is no monthly order required, no contracts or lock in and it can be cancelled any time.
