    Thanks M3, although there are still plenty of changes I can make

    No there is not a Lush locally, although I could order online. Is their toothpaste good for sensitive teeth?

    OH doesn't have sensitive teeth as much but has really sensitive gums and they end up getting shredded with normal toothpaste - with the Lush stuff he doesn't have any troubles so think it should be fine for sensitive teeth.

    I've a Lush just round the corner from me, could always pick up a small one on Saturday for you and send it to you - at least then you would know if it suited you without having to put in a big order - up to you
    PLEASE RECYCLE ALL YOU CAN

    I've used this Weleda herbal toothpaste for years, it's lovely stuff:

    It's really good for your gums too & is non animal tested. Ive seen it for sale on ebay or from health food shops.

    I asked uncaged whether or not Clarins support animal testing (this was before I received the shopping guide) and this was their response:

    Unfortunately they do, after many years of having a good policy they recently changed course and began using new ingredients that have been tested on animals.

    I will have a look into Urtekram shampoos.

    I think Sensodyne decreases the sensitivity of teeth and gums, does the Lush and Weleda toothpastes also do this?

    Thanks for the offer M3, I may take you up on it.

    I have purchased some dishwasher gel (detergent) and rinse aid from Faith in Nature. There is free delivery if you spend 35.

    One thing I am struggling to find is dishwasher cleaner/descaler, any suggestions?

    I have also ordered some cat food from Burns, which cost 7.48 for 2kg, my local pet shop also stocks it, although they sell it for 11.50! Burns also offer free delivery if you spend 20.07.

    The blurb on the weleda toothpaste says this:

    "Krameria tincture and Myrrh, two herbal extracts traditionally used in dental care products, are key active ingredients in this formulation. Together they help strengthen the gums and offer protection against inflammation."


    I know that if I use "normal" toothpaste my gums are more sensitive and they bleed? But if I use the weleda red herbal toothpaste they are fine? I've never used sensodyne so difficult to compare?

    I've never understood that most toothpastes seem to have sweetners in them? Surely defeating the whole point of cleaning your teeth if the toothpaste has sugar in it?

    Thanks, I think it may be worth a try.
