And they sell toothpaste too!

A few months ago I was waiting for a smoothie I had ordered in a small health-food restaurant near Chicago called Karyn’s.  Karyn’s is sort of famous in Chicago because it has been around for a long time.  Karyn Calabrese, the owner, is a fixture on the local health scene. She was doing health food when it was not mainstream but more of a hippie movement.  Needless to say they have some great food.  While waiting for my food I was wandering around the store and looking at what they offered other than food.  One of the things that caught my eye on the busy shelves was their line of healthy toothpaste.  Toothpaste has always been a thing with me.  I hate putting nasty stuff in my mouth and you can’t get any closer to your mouth than toothpaste.  If you read most grocery store brands they are loaded with odd sounding chemicals and even have warning labels regarding poisoning….yikes!  So when I read Karyn’s brand I was amazed at the lack of nasty stuff.  Her ingredients are things like “Mountain Spring Water”,”Peppermint”,”Sage”, and “Honey”.   Who doesn’t like “Mountain Spring Water”?   So I bought a tube to try and have been very satisfied with the flavor and also the results.   It is not cheap at $12.50 but seems to last quite a while.  Luckily, to get some, you do not have to go all the way to Chicago (Unless you live there already) Karyn’s has a mail order service as well.  Check it out at: and go to her store tab.  You will also see many other great products as well.
