Essential oils are extremely potent, often hundreds of times stronger than the herbal extraction of the same plant. Genuine distillations of plants, flowers, seeds, roots, and trees have been used for centuries. Every oil has hundreds of botanical components. Each one of the oils in these formulas is carefully selected by Nadine for its individual and synergistic effects that improve and maintain happy mouths.
The thousands of plant compounds in Happy Gum Drops create a mosaic of botanical flower-power. Essential oils are extremely potent, often hundreds of times stronger than the herbal extraction of the same plant. Every oil contains hundreds of botanical chemical components that work synergistically to effect.
Cinnamon, Cinnamomum ceylanicum. Our true cinnamon bark essential oil from Madagascar is antiseptic and antibacterial. Cinnamon bark oil is a potent cleanser, and it also tastes great!
Clove Bud, Eugenia carophyllata. Distilled fromthe flowering buds of the clove tree, this oil has an extremely high ORAC. Clove oil has freshened breath since ancient times. Its botanical constituents of eugenol, esters, and sesquiterpenes, combine to create a powerful oral cleanser.
Oregano, Origanum vulgare. Our wildoregano oil from oregano grown in the mountains along the the Mediterranean. Wild oregano contains two phenol compounds that contribute to its unique property: carvacrol at concentrations over 65% and thymol at 3.4% concentration.
Dr. Gerald Smith, DDS, explains; “Basically, oregano works like an antibiotic,” boosting the immune system. Many studies show that oregano has a broad range of antimicrobial activities and works against fungus, virus, and bacteria, including E. coli, Staphylococcus aureus, and Pseudomonas aeruglinosa. Wild oil of oregano in oral applications can also improve dental hygiene as it destroys plaque-causing bacteria and reduces risks of gum disease.” Timpone, Patrick. "Interview with Dr. Smith." One Radio Network, July 2009. www.oneradionetwork.com Accessed December, 2012.
Peppermint, Mentha piperita. Our peppermint is a genuine distillation of fresh leaves from a fourth generation family of distillers in France. The peppermint flavouring used in commercial toothpaste is artificial menthol and offers no benefit to the mouth. Real peppermint is a refreshing and potent purifier.
Rose Otto, Rosa damascene. Rose is a precious and elegant essence. It takes sixty roses to make one drop of Rose Otto essential oil! It is one of the most valued oils for its oral tonifying effects.
Seabuckthorn Berry, Hippophae rhamnoides. This is an incredibly rich and vital oil extracted from a bright orange berry. It is perfectly balanced in omega 3, 6, 7, and 9 essential fatty acids. Our seabuckthorn berry is a special super critical extract that captures over 190 bioactive substances from the edible berry. The oil is lush source of vitamins C, E, provitamins A and B, beta carotene, carotenoids, precious phytosterols, and rare palmitoleic acids. All of these extraordinary plant properties contribute Seabuckthorn’s benefit to the mouth.
Thyme Linalool, Thymus officinalis linalool. This rare variety in the thyme species is a gentle, whole mouth toning agent.
Tea Tree Oil, Malaleuca alternifolia, has been used for thousands of years by the Australian Aborigines. This well-known oil contains the plant-chemicals cineol and propanol that are beautiful full-mouth cleansers. Harvested from the paper bark tea tree, tee tree has been used for thousands of years as a medicinal plant by the Australian Aborigines. It is anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial. The Australian Dental Journal stated that it is “a therapeutic agent in chronic gingivitis and periodontitis, conditions that have both bacterial and inflammatory components.”
Tea tree is full of natural anti-inflammatory agents and contains the plant chemicals cineol and propanol that can decrease gingivitis and reduce plaque. Tea tree is also very astringent and antiseptic. In a scientific dental study, a genuine distillation of tea tree oil (2.5%) proved effective in the treatment of chronic of gingivitis and inflammation. High in natural anti-inflammatory, antibacterial constituents of 1.8–cineol, terpinen-4-ol, tea tree essential oil decreased the level of gingival teeth and reduced plaque scores. Furthermore, the study showed that a total of 162 oral bacteria isolates (including streptococcus) were inhibited and rapidly destroyed by tea tree oil concentrations of less than 2%. The study concluded,
The components of Tea Tree Oil are known to have lipophilic properties which facilitate its diffusion through the epithelium. If Tea Tree Oil is readily absorbed after topical application into the gingival tissues and has anti-inflammatory properties once it has entered the connective tissues, it would be a unique non-toxic agent.
Michael Schmidt, author of Beyond Antibiotics, devotes a chapter to the unique antimicrobial nature of essential oils. He states, “One of the advantages essential oils have over antibiotics is that bacteria do not develop resistance to essential oils. Many essential oils exert their antibacterial effect by interfering with the bacteria’s ability to breathe. On the other hand, antibiotics interfere with the life cycle, or metabolism of, bacteria, but since bacteria are very crafty creatures, they change their chemistry and genes, which makes the antibiotic less effective the next time it is used. As a result, new generations of antibiotics will need to be developed to stay ahead of these organisms.” Schmidt, Michael. Beyond Antibiotics: 50 (or so) Ways to Boost Immunity and Avoid Antibiotics.

Happy Gum Drops and Yogi Tooth Serum are botanical serums created for the Successful Self-Dentistry protocol. Many people ask how they differ and which one should be used. The two serums contain different synergies of botanicals and clean the oral cavity a little differently. They are both great for flossing, brushing, and swishing, and they both keep gums, tongue, and teeth clean and happy.
Happy Gum Drops is fresh and minty tasting. The bitter taste of neem in Yogi Tooth Serum may take a little getting used to, though the cinnamon and cardamom in the product help make it palatable.
Feel free to swallow the oral serums. In the single-drop quantities in which they are used, Libations oral serums are acceptable to swallow. Essential oils are potent, and some people advise that they not be taken internally in any quantity. If the oils are not a genuine authentic distillation, it is certainly best to not ingest them (or apply them to the skin!). When pure distillations of essential oils are taken in small quantities, by the drop, most are fine for internal use. In fact, many essential oils are used by the food and flavor industries. Orange juice is often flavoured with essential oil from oranges, Earl Grey Tea is flavoured with essential oil distilled from bergamot, and many liqueurs, confectionaries, chocolates, and flavour extracts use various essential oils.
What Goes on the Skin Goes In
It is important to remember that everything that is applied to the body, including essential oils, or the manufactured chemicals of perfumes, toothpaste, and synthetic lotions, are absorbed into the bloodstream, cells, and organs. The rate of absorption is even higher inside the mouth where the skin wall, or epithelium, is only one cell thick. This is especially true if one has bleeding gums, which allows anything that is put in the mouth direct access to the bloodstream. We would not want to put anything in, on, or around the body that could not be swallowed. With ingredients, discernment is important.
Commercial toothpaste feels refreshing because it contains synthetic mint (menthol) or other flavor by-products, such as cinnamaldehyde. These are not real plant essences, but synthetic derivatives. Foaming chemicals in your mouth while you are brushing your teeth do not create optimal oral cleanliness. Regular toothpaste gives an illusion of freshness, yet pastes do not remove plaque. It is the brushing that removes plaque. So, it is best to be minimalist about it, and use a dry toothbrush with a dab of salt, baking soda, or a tooth serum.
The chemicals used in commercial toothpaste, including many of the brands sold in health food stores, include chemicals that you do not want in your mouth, such as glycerin, which coats the teeth and blocks the saliva from doing its primary job of re-mineralizing the enamel. You will also find calcium carbonate that does not benefit the teeth. Also, what paste would be complete without the detergent and surfactant sodium lauryl sulfate, which makes toothpaste foamy? This known carcinogen breaks down your skin's natural barrier, easily penetrates skin, causing bleeding gums, and allows other chemicals to penetrate by increasing skin permeability approximately 100-fold. Additionally, when combined with other chemicals, it transforms into carcinogenic nitrates and can reside in the body for five days.
Some toothpastes contain propylene glycol, a close relative of ethylene glycol used as anti-freeze, which is not to be handled in a lab without gloves. There are also FD&C colorants (including coal tar derivatives that contain heavy metals and accumulate in the body), formaldehyde, Triclosan (a registered pesticide and bio-persistent chemical that destroys fragile aquatic ecosystems), artificial sweeteners, and synthetic isopropyl alcohol.
Ethanol is the primary ingredient in most mouthwashes, even though it is known to contribute to oral cancer. Yet when people learn that they have breath or gum problems, they go out and get a new brand of toothpaste and a big bottle of ethanol-based mouthwash.
Living Libations oral care products are concentrated serums that are water and alcohol free.
Potent dynamic essential oils of seabuckthorn, rose, peppermint, clove, oregano, cinnamon, tea tree, and thyme.

I want to thank you for your excellent products that exceed anything that I have used. My dentist has told me that the pockets in my gums are much better. My gums no longer bleed. Really incredible after two months use. -Catherine
Awesome stuff! My mouth and teeth have not been so clean! Everyday feels like I have just came back from the dentist! Has also healed my gums that have been inflamed and receding. Wow! -Lee
I must admit that I was skeptical that Gum Drops could possibly replace all those highly advertised and enthusiastically endorsed [by all those medical people] toothpastes: Was I wrong! Not only does it completely replace them, it is far better in many ways: You need much less; just one drop. Not only is the container much smaller, it is recyclable. It can also be carried in your pocket or handbag, and of course your carry on luggage. The taste is much more pleasant than the barely disguised chemicals of the store bought toothpastes. Oil of cloves is another of those traditional remedies, having been used to treat toothache for centuries. -Deirdre
Amazing! I am so happy that I found this product. I now follow a similar method every morning as what you recommend. My teeth have never been whiter, cleaner and my mouth has never been healthier. This is definitely the best oral care product I've ever found. I'm trying to convert everyone. Thank you for this awesome blend! -Andy
I noticed with your healthy teeth and gums oil, when I floss and brush with just that, my mouth stays cleaner, longer. If i use toothpaste, even a natural kind, I have to keep brushing! -Jami
Whimsical Name, Effective Product! I received my order of Happy Gum Drops this week, and am so happy with this product. Already, my gums look healthier (they are so pink). I find I am almost looking for excuses to brush my teeth - it tastes that good. My breath is left fresh and cinnamon-y and my lips tingly. I am tempted to carry a bottle in my purse so I can use it as a fresh freshener instead of gum and mints. I'm torn between telling my boyfriend about it, and keeping it all to myself! It is liquid gold. -Dawn
gumdrops to grow gum tissue. I've been using Happy Gum Drops now for approximately 3 months, maybe longer. I want everybody who views this site to know that this product has worked to clean my teeth so well that my gum tissue is actually growing back inside the recesses of my gum recession. I couldn't believe it when it happened. Nadine talks about her own issues with gum trouble and her You Tube video convinced me to give it a try. I am 51 years old, had a couple of pretty bad gum recessiveness on each side of my mouth, the teeth right after my canines toward the back. I had considered going for scaling and root planing and for gum restoration in those places but now I don't have to. It's so exciting to see one's body regenerate like this. I can't tell you how pleased I am with this product. -Cheryl
I love these products and my Dentist is still scratching her head from my last check up....no plaque. -Sandy
I just came from the (conventional) periodontist and in 2009, my periodontal disease they said, was progressing. Now as of yesterday she (my periodontist) stated that I now have NO progressing periodontal disease!!! It is inactive!!! WOOHHOOHEE!!!!!!! She was curious to know was I still practicing "naturopathic" techniques..As I told her I had recently adopted at that time, I happily and proudly said yes! And then I found your products about 6 months later after that. So to say I am ecstatic is an understatement and now I am even more motivated to stick with your techniques because I know my practicing your techniques and using your products have greatly contributed this wonderful news! I wanted to share that and say THANK YOU! -LaTarsha
