Does the HealThy Mouth Blend damage the ‘good bugs’ in my mouth?

According to our research of the scientific literature, essential oil based oral hygiene products like our HealThy Mouth Blend do not harm the oral microbiome.  Essential oil products also are not at risk of causing antimicrobial resistance like is so common from overuse of antibiotics.

A study published in the Journal of Clinical Periodontology in 2003 states, “Long-term use of an EO mouthwash is microbiologically safe, with no changes observed in the bacterial composition of supragingival plaque, and no evidence of antimicrobial resistance.”
