Thriving teeth and gums are a powerful window to your overall health. Happy, healthy teeth and gums allow the full enjoyment of life's sensuality. This potent, revolutionary formula addresses oral care with the purity necessary to have the healthiest mouth ever. Potent essential oils of rose peppermint clove and thyme are gathered here for an effective anti-bacterial, anti-fungal anoint for oral care. Add one drop to toothbrush, mouth rinse with one drop, massage into gums, and best of all glide a drop over dental floss to cleanse the tiny spaces in between the teeth. For the healthiest gums use these formulas for brushing, flossing, massaging gums, mouth-rinses, proxabrushes, sulca-brushes, rubber-tip stimulators to overcome sensitive teeth, to aid abscesses, to ease the recovery of oral surgery, and for general overall cavity prevention.
Why does Surthrival Healthy Gums Work?
Teeth are "alive”, similar to the crystalline calcium forms of a coral reef in the middle of the tooth is a pulp area containing nerve endings and blood vessels. The mouth's saliva acts like an oceanic sea of alkalinity, protecting the teeth from acid. Acidity (from foods and bacteria) strips the teeth of enamel, eventually revealing the pulp through cavities, and the teeth become more vulnerable to bacteria. Bacteria are the cause of gingivitis, inflammation, periodontitis and decay.
Below the gum line is cementum, a material similar to jawbone which keeps the tooth attached to gums and the jawbone held together with collagen fibres. These collagen fibres, pulp areas, nerve endings and blood vessels need alkalinity and nourishment. Our deeply penetrating formula, with amazing lipophilic properties, facilitates diffusion through the epithelium to nourish the cells, generate circulation to the gum tissue, dentine and blood vessels.
The organic botanical extracts in these formulas are selected by Nadine Artemis for their individual and potent synergistic effect on the improvement and maintenance of gum and oral health. These combinations of antiseptic, astringent, circulatory and analgesic botanicals create optimal molecular activity and bioavailability for oral care. The unique combinations of our formulas create an oral care product with one of the highest ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacities) scores, showing high antioxidant levels and therefore combating age-related degeneration.
Applied orally, the natural botanical ingredients are absorbed through the gum mucosa - a much more direct way of entering your bloodstream.

Quality of an essential oil is the key factor in its effectiveness, and only genuine oils contain the magical plant-metabolites. Our oils – nothing added or removed – are from the precious process of genuine distillation, resulting in the layered effect of botanical intelligence.
Living Libations continually celebrates relationships with artisan growers, wild-crafters and distillers that are the gatherers of plant material. Skilled and caring distillers create long-low-slow distillations – capturing the mysterious intra-species potent molecules of plant-metabolites: which reflect the intention of the plant, communicate the strength of the plant, and share the secret endocrine system of the plant; all the subtle aspects of the plant alchemized into essence.
Tea Tree, Melaeluca alternifolia, in scientific Dental studies (ADJ) Tea Tree is proven to be effective in the treatment of chronic gingivitis and inflammation. High in natural anti-inflammatory and antibacterial constituents of 1,8–cineol and terpinen-4-ol, Tea Tree decreases the level of gingivitis and reduced plaque scores in the study. Another study showed a total of 162 oral bacteria types (including streptococcus) were inhibited and rapidly destroyed by less than 2% concentrations of Tea Tree oil. The Healthy Gum Drops formula contains more than 3% of this astringent and antiseptic essence.
Clove, Syzygium aromaticum, is a traditional dental treatment. Clove is an analgesic (pain-killer), has the highest ORAC count, boosts immunity, stimulates blood flow and contains the botanical constituent eugenol which has an impressive range of actions against pathogens.
Rose, Rosa damascena, adds resiliency and elasticity to gum tissue and tones collagen. Rose is a vulnerary, which speeds up healing and although rose is often seen as the beauty queen, rose (otto, the steam distilled rose) is a potent antiviral and antiseptic extract, with toning and cell and tissue regenerative properties.
Cinnamon, Cinnamomum ceylanicum, antiseptic, antibacterial, stimulates blood circulation to the gums promoting their health and regeneration. Very high in eugenols, cinnamic aldehydes and cineol: potent anaesthetic and antiseptic properties that increase the production of white blood cells.
Seabuckthorn Berry, Hippophae rhamnoides, is incredibly rich in vitamin E, antioxidants, beta-carotene and carotenoids to help the gums grow, increase elasticity and regenerate. Palmitoleic acid rarely found in plant oils, yet high in this berry oil is a major component of nourishing skin lipids.
Jojoba, Simmondsia chinensis, a luxurious liquid wax ester sourced from cold-pressed seeds, containing vitamins E and B-complex, along with silicon, chromium, copper, zinc, and iodine, having strong antioxidant properties.
Thyme Linalool, Thymus officinalis linalool, balances oral saliva secretions, stimulates the immune system, decongestant, antiseptic, warming, tonifying, effective immunostimulant and anti-bacterial agents.
Peppermint, Mentha piperita, has digestive, analgesic, cooling and anti-inflammatory properties. The "peppermint" found in many toothpastes is generally a synthetic menthol or flavoring agent, lacking any potency to help prevent gingivitis; most oral-care products are artificially flavored. Real peppermint fights the bacterium that causes tooth decay.
Oregano, Origanum vulgare, contains botanical phenols, which offer a broad spectrum of antibacterial, antifungal and anti-parasitic actions important to oral invincibility.
"Just brushing your teeth with Colgate or rinsing with Listerine may not prevent tooth decay" - Dr. Zeines, DDS
Your mouth is an opening to your overall health.
Acid + bacteria = inflammation = plaque = tartar = bleeding = sensitivity = decay = receding gums = exposed dentine = decay = lower immunity for overall health.
It is important to attend to oral health. Sensitive teeth, receding gums and quality of breath are indicators that one's oral hygiene needs some evolutionary attention. When you notice that your mouth is less healthy than it could be, it's a sign that your whole body is suffering. A cavity, gum disease or a root canal is a sign that decay-causing bacteria has begun to overpower your mouth and immune system.
Teeth appear solid; yet, they are filled with microscopic tubules that, in healthy teeth, serve to carry nourishing fluids into the body. A single front tooth, for instance, has over three miles of tubules inside of it! When the mouth is less than healthy, the tubules carry bacteria and disease.
"Dental caries reflects systemic illness,” states Dr. George Meinig, D.D.S. "Once a tooth gets infected and the cavity gets into the nerve and blood vessels, bacteria find their way into those tiny tubules of the dentine.”
Therefore it is essential to treat the mouth, sensitive areas, receding gums, and signs of cavities with anti-fungal, anti-viral and anti-bacterial agents that are beneficial to the entire immune system. Thriving Healthy Gums Potent Oral Care contains pure, potent essential oils that pass easily and swiftly through the bloodstream and into the gum pockets reviving sensitive areas and eliminating harmful bacteria.
