take a bite out of your oral healthcare routine in 4 easy steps
gargle first, ask questions later. when you wake up, before you do anything else, gargle with salt water. while you were sleeping, bacteria took up residence in your mouth. if you don't rinse away that bacteria it'll go straight to your gut. yuck! a quick gargle with salt water draws water out of your oral tissues and creates a salt barrier preventing bacteria from getting back inside
show your tongue some love. bacteria doesn't just attach itself to your teeth. give your tongue a good scraping before you brush your teeth.
give your organs a shower. drinking a glass of warm or room temp lemon water is like giving your organs a refreshing shower in the morning. try adding a drop of lemon essential oil to your water. among other benefits, lemon essential oil is known to help with digestion, reduces inflammation and flushes acidic toxins from the body
