The roots of the Salvadora Persica tree make a great toothbrush, have any of you used one of these for an extended period of time?
I've used them on & off and they make your teeth feel exceptionally clean but they're a bit long winded to get every single part of your teeth every morning & evening
I will endeavour to experiment on myself as i'm interested how they work out long term

I was going to make a post about this soon. Glad you did first :) I just discovered salvadora persica aka miswak through a friend of mine. He swears by the stuff! He told me how on a trip to Africa he met a beautiful black African girl that had the pearliest of whites. Knowing that these people had no toothbrushes he wondered how her teethe were so stunning. That is when he found out she used miswak and ever since then he has been hooked. I've done a bit a research on it myself and it does indeed have some well researched benefits going for it. It helps kill odor and bad breath, kills bacteria in the mouth and fights plaque, to name a few. I have yet to order some myself because honestly I forgot about it until now, but they are pretty cheap. Beats using fluoride and those dang toothbrushes. When I do order some (probably today) I will report back with an update.
