The people of the Andean Mountains in Peru traditionally use Ratanhia root to clean their teeth. The sturdy red root is rich in tannin agents which help to clean sensitive gums. It contains calming myrrh and refreshing essential oils of peppermint and spearmint, with a gentle, calcium-based abrasive for an effective toothpaste.


Regular use helps to clean teeth and help your mouth feel refreshed. Long-lasting fresh minty taste. Certified natural by NATRUE.

Blessed by your work!

At my age [64] gum issues are more possible. However each time I go to the dentist for 6mo. teeth cleaning, he and the hygenist are amazed how healthy my gums are. I owe it all to Weleda salt/myrhh toothpaste! My teeth, gums & mouth feel so tingly and alive after brushing.Thank you for your devotion to such pure, healthy and evironmentally sustainable products. We all are blessed by your work!

Quality product!

I recently purchased Ratanhia Toothpaste and love it! I've tried so many different organic/natural toothpastes on the market, and this is the first toothpaste that I like. Many toothpastes promise to 'leave your mouth feeling clean and refreshed,' but very few actually deliver. Thanks for making such a quality product!
