Natural Tea Tree Oil & Neem Toothpaste
Neem is the “toothbrush tree” from India. In India, Africa, and the Middle East people have been using the slender neem twigs for centuries. First they chew the twigs as a toothbrush and then split them as a tongue cleaner. Today, the rural Indian population is still chewing neem twigs whereas neem toothpaste is preferred in urban areas. It has been found that neem has a positive effect on plaque removal and gingival health.
