Over a year ago, I have been thinking to brush my teeth with the toothbrush stick. No, I am not kidding. It exists truly. If you already knew our family well, you must know that we are so much into natural stuff. Finding this twig is like hunting for a treasure box. At least, it is, for me personally. So, I did it secretively. I didn’t want to bother anyone by asking.
Yet, I wanted to try this natural toothbrush so badly. All I know that this twig grows between Arabian and African area, including India and Pakistan. So, there was one Pakistani brother whom I have never met in person, but we are friends on Facebook. I was super happy that he sent me, —not one— –not three–, but eight Miswaks as a gift! I have been spoiled! Thank You, brother Salman!!!
It has Many Names
Let me first introduce you to this Siwak aka Miswak. It is a stick taken from the roots of Peelu or Arak plant or Salvadora Persica in its Latin name. This one-man-show toothbrush has no dependency on the toothpaste to clean the teeth. How cool is that?!
Even way cooler than that, this twig has been used centuries ago. So, I was dying to crack one branch to nibble it. The problem was, I didn’t really know how to get my hands on this mysterious Toothbrush Tree because they grow mostly in between Middle Eastern and African territory. Again, I want to say ‘Thank you’ to this brother Salman for your generosity.
Absolute Natural Mouth Hygiene
I want to share you why I am soooo wanting to try this ancient natural toothbrush. Most of all, this Miswak carries every property to perfectly clean the teeth but it also acts as a natural herbal remedy. Even the World Health Organization (WHO) encourage the usage of this twig for an absolute natural mouth hygiene.
By the way, do you know where I can buy this Miswak in Korea? Please share me a link where to buy it, I would be very grateful.
