I first heard about the Bulk Herb Store when I was browsing YouTube for different DIY home remedy tutorials. I had been searching for some reliable information and was beginning to think I wasn't going to find any. Finally, I found Shoshannah's Kitchen on the Bulk Herb Store channel. Such a wealth of information! I found everything; beauty remedies, herbal remedy "how to's" and lots of nutritional information. I have to hand it to Shoshannah, she has a remarkable ability to give you lots of information in an easy to understand way in just a few minutes. If you haven't already, GO CHECK HER OUT! You wont be sorry!
Anyway, on to the Bulk Herb Store. After watching her videos, I immediately wanted to check out her store as I am always on the look out for quality herbs that I can buy in bulk for a good price. I definitely found that! I was pleased to see how large their selection of medicinal and cooking herbs was. I found nearly everything on my herb list at reasonable prices. Bulk Herb Store was kind enough to send me several herbs as well as their Bentonite Clay Toothpaste Kit. You can watch the tutorial for it here. I was pretty excited to get my box. There isn't much that beats the smell of sweet healing organic herbs, and I really enjoyed the lovely scent that met me when I opened it. My husband walked in the room to me with my face nearly inside the box, breathing it in deeply. I really do love that scent!

After watching the tutorial for the homemade toothpaste I was intrigued to try it out. As you will hear in the video, this toothpaste helps to put minerals back into your teeth. Having healthy teeth keeps them white and clean. I was interested to see what the taste would be like. It is cinnamon and clove with a little stevia to sweeten it. My husband was a bit amused to see "mud" in the bathroom but he and my 17 month old son both like it. It took me 3-4 times to really enjoy the flavor, but I absolutely loved the way my mouth felt from the beginning. I love that my son can use this and I don't have to worry about him swallowing it. Store toothpaste is extremely toxic and though we only used fluoride free "natural" toothpaste it still contains a lot of things I don't want in our bodies. Both my husband and I felt like we had just left the dentist after a cleaning. The celtic salt and baking soda really help to kill the bacteria in your mouth. Cinnamon and clove also help to clean your mouth and truly leaves you with a sweet taste in your mouth. Bentonite clay also helps to absorb metals and toxins from your body! This toothpaste does not need added toxic fluoride to keep your teeth strong, you are using real, natural minerals to strengthen your teeth. You are getting whiter teeth without stripping the enamel! Each kit makes about a quart of toothpaste making it an affordable and easy option. Also, making it was like doing a science experiment, totally fun! I made it during nap time, but next time I will include my toddler, I know he will enjoy watching!

Along with the toothpaste kit, Bulk Herb Store sells different herbal remedy tea mixes, delicious gourmet tea mixes (I have my eye on the pumpkin pie mix!), hair treatment kits and ointment/salve kits. There is so much learning to be done and one way they help with that is by putting a little bit of basic information about each herb that you purchase on the label. There were a few things I didn't know about the herbs that I ordered and I enjoyed researching further to see how I could get the most use out of my herbs.
Bulk Herb Store is a wonderful resource. They have a wealth of information and products that will better help you care for your family in the most natural way possible. Along with their youtube channel, they sell different instructional videos and books to give you more detailed information on the use of herbs and nutrition. Check it out!
