I love kismet and coincidences.
I think they are the universe’s way of letting you know that we are all connected.
When I was doing the recordings for the Dental Health Connection Summit, I had the pleasure of speaking with Nadine Artemis. She is a phenomenal healer with a passion for dental health in a natural super effective way. I didn’t realize that she had developed a product line that I had been using for years until we met online. Her line is called Living Libations.
Living Libations Yogi Tooth Serum is a potent combination of botanical powerhouses that will keep your mouth extremely fresh and clean. These ancient Vedic botanicals are the yogi secret agents for oral care. Here is some of the background for your reference:
Neem, is the focal essence in Yogi Tooth Serum, is “arista” in Sanskrit, a word that means: perfect, complete, and imperishable. Neem is a bona fide bitter herb. It has been used in India (my Father’s homeland!) for thousands of years in agriculture, food storage, oral and body care. Neem alkalizes the mouth and banishes bad breath bacteria. I planted a Neem tree in my yard, I love it so much.
Essential oils and supercritical extracts are key to the Living Libations formulas. They are highly concentrated. So concentrated in fact, that a whole plant is required to create only one drop of oil in some of the ingredients. Elements, such as mastic in the Yogi Tooth Serum, help to soothe the gums and tongue. Clove and cinnamon have impressive properties for eliminating bad breath-causing bacteria. (You don’t necessarily want straight Neem – as it’s very strong and has a funky taste and fragrance. When Neem is combined with the other herbs it makes it perfectly fine to taste!)
Use: Avoid while pregnant. Add one drop to toothbrush, toothpaste, or mouth rinse. This serum may also be massaged into gums or simply glide a drop-over dental floss to cleanse those tiny spaces in between the teeth. Yogi Tooth Serum is excellent to use with the Neem Enamelizer and Truth Tooth Polish.
Each oil in the serum has a unique benefit for oral health.
Neem Oil – Asadirachta indica
TIn Sanskrit, the word for neem is ‘arista,’ which translates to “perfect, complete, and imperishable” and has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic practices, Neem, and your toothbrush has Wonder Twin powers for your mouth. This herbal, waxy-wonder busts up plaque and tartar, polishes teeth and leaves your smile bright, clean, and white.
Mastic – Pistacia lentiscus
Mastic is a type of resin similar to frankincense that comes from the inner sap of the mastic tree and is helpful for soothing the gums, tongue, and skin in the mouth. It has a long history of oral care use in ancient Greece and, along with brushing, helps to remove tooth plaque. Mastic contains pinene, verbenone, terpineol, linalool, myrcene, pinene, limonene, and caryophyllene. Like all essential oils, the efficacy of Mastic Oil is due to all of its components working synergistically.
Cardamom – Elettaria cardamomum
Charismatic Cardamon dazzles breathe, tones skin, and is an optimal oil for oral care.
Cinnamon Bark – Cinnamomum ceylanicum
Our true Cinnamon Bark Oil from Madagascar is a potent plaque cleanser and breath freshener. It is a classic spice, and tastes nice, too!

A dash of compelling Cayenne burns off bad breath. This super spicy supercritical extract purifies plaque with its piquant potency.
Clove Bud – Eugenia carophyllata
Clove oil has freshened breath and been an optimal choice for oral care since ancient times. Its botanical constituents of eugenol, esters, and sesquiterpenes, combine to create a powerhouse for a clean, fresh mouth.
Jojoba Oil – Simmondsia chinensis
Jojoba is known for its incredible skin benefits, and it is also a chief player in natural oral care. Jojoba’s loving lipids easily soothe oral tissue.
