Found this toothpaste and thought some of you beekeeps might be interested in knowing about it. While shopping at a organic market I noticed that Tom's of Maine toothpaste has a variety called Propolis and Myrrh. As propolis has anti-inflammatory properties and helps fight bacteria, I thought this sounded pretty good. I bought a tube. It was pricey, but time will tell how it works. It contains sodium lauryl sulfates, which cause sores in some people's mouths, my son included.

I have heard of it, but found it's cheaper to scrape propolis from the end of a frame and chew it. It softens just like chewing gum.

I haven't seen this in the stores at all yet, but maybe it will be a less expensive option http://www.colgate.com.my/app/Colgate/M ... QPage.cvsp

You would be surprised how many different oral care products are available with propolis in them! A quick google search will give you a full days' reading. I have used propolis to make a spray for sore throats and laryngitis with such good results that preacher friends of ours and families who travel in music ministry have called asking for more quite a few times.

You can make a tincture of propolis or a water based solution of it and use with a waterpik too. I've been contemplating doing this for my hubby as he has some complicated dental issues and it would be a less expensive alternative than some of the other things we've tried.
