I am a band geek. Go ahead and laugh. So in school, I used to get mouth sores pretty often. I would buy the liquid stuff in the drugstore and keep it in my clarinet case because it was hard to play when your mouth was hurting so bad, but also because it was funny to goof off and try and play with your mouth numb sometimes. I never said I was the smartest kid.
But that was the thing with the other brands. No matter what I tried (whether intentionally or not), I was left with a completely numb mouth and tongue. And of course I ended up swallowing a good bit. Which got me thinking…What’s in this stuff?
That’s why I got so excited when I was asked to review Quantum Health’s Natural Oral Care line. I was sent a package with
• Lip Clear Lysine+ Cold Sore Treatment, a clinically proven natural ointment shown to cut healing time in half. It’s made with Tea Tree Oil and Lysine and it goes on very smoothly. Even better is that it’s clear and can worn under chapstick or lip gloss. Not to mention it smells good!
• Oramoist Dry Mouth Patch which is made to stick to the roof of your mouth and moisturize your mouth for up to four hours. It’s time-released, sugar-free and freshens your breath with a natural fruity flavor.
• Canker Cover Canker Sore Patch Which lasts 8-12 hours and is made with edidible ingredients. This gel patch sticks to the sore and covers it from food and drink and has a mint taste that freshens your breath without overpowering your mouth.
I tried all three, but I’ve never had cold sores so I can’t vouch for the Lip Clear except that it feels nice and I HAVE seen the effects of Lysine on cold sores and it is awesome!!
The dry mouth patch, I let Kyle try because he is a mouth-breather. (hehe) Especially at night, he has trouble with dry mouth and I hate to say it causes quite a funk on his breath. We were really impressed with these and he said he would be buying more. And coming from him, that means a lot!
Lastly, I wanted to make sure I was able to really do this product justice. The Canker Cover is awesome. I honestly sat back and prayed for a sore this week! Fortunately, I bit the inside of my lip and Kyson stuck his sharp fingernail in it this morning This stuff is awesome. It looks like a thin pill or one of those Smarties candies. You stick it to the sore and it turns into a gel. It doesn’t taste bad or turn your whole mouth numb and there is no swallowing any chemicals. (YUCK!) I tested it good. It felt a little strange, but I just ate a happy meal with a coke and it’s still hanging in there. It’s stuck for good. I tried to pull at it and it didnt come off. And when I run my tongue over it, it doesn’t move but it tastes minty. Even after the patch is gone, it feels wonderful and has healed almost completely after just one patch I have a feeling I will be using these for a long time.
