Treat Your Teeth To These Toothpicks . . .
We have to let you in on one of our favorite oral hygiene tricks: Toothpicks. Not just any old toothpicks but these minty birchwood sticks made by Tea Tree Therapy that boast many benefits for your breath, gums, and overall oral health.
Not to be mistaken with actual tea leaves (that you're most likely more familiar with), tea tree oil is an essential oil with a refreshing scent and is derived from the leaves of the Melaleuca alternifolia, which is native to Australia.
Tea tree oil's natural antiseptic properties help freshen breath and kill bacteria that causes plaque and tartar. The long-lasting flavor of the toothpicks can also aid those trying to give up smoking and snacking. Tea tree oil can help prevent gum inflammation due to its antimicrobial actions that kill fungal, viral and bacterial organisms.
*Important note: These toothpicks are safe for your mouth but tea tree oil itself (the essential oil) is toxic when taken by mouth and should never be swallowed. Always consult your physician before adding any supplement to your diet or daily routine.
