If you’ve followed this blog for very long, then you probably know that I’m a natural mama and I love learning everything I can about healthy ways to raise our five kids.

About two years ago, we started experiencing some issues with our older kids’ oral health… yeah, cavities.

I wasn’t a very happy mama! 

Since we do brush our teeth religiously, I started seeking out resources that address oral health from the core out.  

It was obvious that we needed something more than just the “brush and floss daily” routine.

I talked to two different natural practitioners- our chiropractor and our homeopath- and they both referred me to xylitol.

At the time, I was eating the Trim Healthy Mama way so I was already at least a little bit familiar with xylitol.  I knew it was a natural alternative to sugar, but I had yet to discover the many oral health benefits of xylitol.

I talked with our homeopath rather extensively, and she told me about Dr. Ellie Phillips (whom she had personally heard lecture at a practitioner’s conference) and Dr. Ellie’s website, Zellies.com.

I ordered Dr. Ellie’s book, Kiss Your Dentist Goodbye, and read it… and even had my ten-year old daughter read it!

The more I learned, the more convinced I became that we were on the right track.  And the more I decided that this resource was something I wanted to share with other mamas.

After a few months, I did something that I very rarely do as a blogger… I contacted Zellies and asked if they would like to come on board with me as a sponsor.  I felt like I was going way out on a limb.  I mean, I’m just a little, old nobody who happens to have a blog!

Much to my delight, Zellies said YES!  

I’ve corresponded with this company for about a year now.  After using Zellies products, and implementing many of the methods in Dr. Ellie’s book, I am truly a believer in the message Zellies is passionately sharing.  And I’m pretty excited to share Zellies with you!  

Let’s get on with the details, shall we?

  3. I’ve been looking for products like these!

  4. Interested in the gum. My husband is a pilot and chews gum like he breathes air..i think for his ears and the pressure. Would like to introduce this to him as a good alternative to all the artificial sugar he consumes daily! And when our kids get older use their items as well!

  9. I don’t chew gum, but my husband does. I would be most excited about the toothpaste and the polar bears.

  16. Thank you for a great give away. Checked out Zellie’s web site–it all looks good. My kids are recently on a gum kick so the gum would be wonderful. Also like the polar bears for chewing on after a meal and the granular xylitol would come in handy in a lot of ways.

  19. We would probably try any of their products. I am always looking for gum with xylitol and the only kind we like is pretty expensive. I think the cinnamon gum would be a big hit. Thank you for sharing this company with us!

    Posted on February 4, 2015 at 4:33 pm
  20. I’m going to order some of this! I can’t wait!

    Posted on February 4, 2015 at 3:33 pm
    1. I’m pretty excited about the 30% off promo!

      Posted on February 4, 2015 at 4:35 pm
      1. I can’t get the promo to work. It keeps saying that the promo doesn’t apply to my order. I had a couple bottles of gum in my cart. It can be for anything on their site, correct? Thanks Kimberly

        Posted on February 4, 2015 at 4:43 pm
      2. The promo for 30% off is up and running! The coupon code is LITTLENATURALCOTTAGE30

        It will discount all your purchases by 30%. The code is valid through February!

  21. We are gum addicts and we NEED a healthier alternative. I must try the gum. MUST.

    Posted on February 4, 2015 at 2:53 pm
    1. We chew so much gum, too! My kids inherited that habit from me. 😉

      Posted on February 4, 2015 at 4:38 pm
  22. Do they have toothpaste?

    Posted on February 4, 2015 at 2:50 pm
    1. Hi Lori – we don’t have toothpaste yet, but we are working on a great, natural formulation for kids and adults. We hope to have it available soon!

      1. It sounds great, Chrissie! I can’t wait to try it!

  23. Cool!! I would really love to learn more about these products! I would be eager to try anything the Zellie has to offer. The Polar Bear Jar would be a great start!

    Posted on February 4, 2015 at 2:50 pm
    1. My kids love the Polar Bear jar!

      Posted on February 4, 2015 at 4:37 pm

    1. Probably the gum.

      Posted on February 4, 2015 at 2:47 pm
  25. Peppermint gum

    Posted on February 4, 2015 at 8:17 am
  26. My kids and I are gum chewers, so the Zellies gum would be a product we’d love to try! The fun bubble packs would be a hit with the kids. Thanks for introducing me to this company, I’d never heard of it before.

    Posted on February 4, 2015 at 8:17 am
  27. Thanks for introducing us to Zellies. I had never heard of them before, and was surprised to see that one of my local grocery stores carries some of their products. I usually avoid gum and mints because of the sugar or artificial sweeteners, so it would be a fun treat to carry some “safe” mints in my purse!

    Posted on February 4, 2015 at 7:44 am
    1. The mints are super tasty!

      Posted on February 4, 2015 at 4:36 pm
  28. Would love any of the gum flavours, especially the Spearmint! Thanks for a cool giveaway!

    Posted on February 4, 2015 at 7:17 am
  29. There are so many things I want to try. I have been looking for a good cinnamon mint or gum and would like to try these. The Cherry gummies look great too. Thanks for posting this. It is exactly what I have been looking for.
