Will toothpaste interfere with remedy?

Well, I am using a homeopathic remedy for my son. Right now I use weleda childrens tooth gel for him, which he swallows since he does not know to rinse and spit out toothpaste yet. I know strong odors including peppermint can make a remedy ineffective. This toothpaste doesnt contain peppermint but does contain spearmint.

Here are the ingredients:

Ingredients (INCI): Glycerin, Water (Aqua), Silica, Algin, Calendula Officinalis, Foeniculum Vulgare (Fennel), Mentha Viridis (Spearmint), Esculin, Limonene(from natural essential oils)

Since my son is swallowing a little of this every day, could it make his remedy less effective? I appreciate any advice on this. Thanks!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
It wont as long it is not in the vicinity of the dose. (1 hour on either side)

We are anyways dealing with LMs in your son's case.

Thanks sameer for the info. Are LM's less affected by things like peppermint, coffee, etc, than other potencies?
