Miswak Natural toothbrush

R50.00

THE OLDEST TOOTHBRUSH IN HISTORY. 

The miswak, along with other forms of chewing sticks, is considered to be the first documented form of dental hygiene. It is still commonly used in the Middle East, North Africa, and Central and Southeast Asia and is arguably the best-kept secret of the ancient world.

In Islamic cultures, the miswak is considered to be “sunnah”, referring to the daily practice of the prophet Mohammad (PBUH), who recommended it as part of a daily health regimen.

A NATURAL HERBAL REMEDY.

Over the years, dental researchers and medical publications have studied the natural antibacterial properties found in the miswak, which is extracted from the roots and branches of a very particular tree called the Salvadora Persica, or Arak tree. Several of these studies reveal that when used correctly, the miswak can have a positive impact on your oral hygiene through:

• Plaque reduction
• Teeth whitening
• Fighting bad odor
• Killing bacteria
• Increasing salivation
• Helping with nicotine addiction

The Salvadora Persica has also been noted to carry natural remedies in its berries and leaves, in addition to its roots and branches. In 2008, the World Health Organization recommended the miswak as a healthy alternative to the toothbrush.

GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH, YOUR WALLET AND THE ENVIRONMENT.

If you’ve never used the miswak before, it’s normal to be skeptical of its natural benefits.

Even if you don’t replace your toothbrush entirely, using the miswak as a complimentary method of oral hygiene can have significant effects on your health and on the environment.

Not only is the miswak more affordable and environmentally friendly, its portability and self-cleansing outer layer ensures a cleaner and more frequent brush.

HOW TO USE THE MISWAK:

PEEL: Peel about 1 cm of the outer layer of the miswak to reveal the inner bristles.

SEPARATE : Chew on the tip of the miswak to soften the bristles. You can also use your thumb to separate them.

BRUSH: Holding the miswak perpendicular to your mouth, brush your teeth in a circular motion. Allow the bristles between the gaps of the teeth for a good floss.

CUT: When the tip of your miswak gets dry, use a knife to cut the tip off. Repeat the first step when you’re ready to use it again. We recommend cutting the tip off once a day.

USAGE

DO I HAVE TO PEEL THE OUTER LAYER?

In order to get to the bristles, you have to peel approximately 1 cm of the outer layer to reveal the fibers.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I USE THE MISWAK?

You can use it as often as you like- it works great in between meals and on the go since you don’t need water or toothpaste.

WHAT DO I DO WHEN THE BRISTLES DRY UP?

You can use a knife, scissors, or our specially designed Cutter Case that helps you cut, peel and store your miswak.

WHEN DO I CUT THE TIP OFF?

The short answer: whenever you need to. We recommend that you cut it once a day to get fresh bristles.

HOW LONG DOES ONE STICK LAST?

It really depends on how often you cut the tip off.
