100% natural siwak


Also known as miswak, araq stick or souek, siwak is the root of a shrub found in the Middle East. Its use dates back to the dawn of time. Then Islam brought it to light, particularly the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him. Without further ado, discover the benefits of this natural toothbrush whose merits were praised by the Messenger of Allah.

Do you know what a siwak stick is?

This natural product comes from a small tree known as Salvadora persica. To extract the siwak, you have to reach the roots of the tree by digging into the ground. In this way, you can harvest fairly thin but solid sticks.

Once the roots have been reached, the sticks are methodically cut and re-cut to obtain sticks of around 10 cm. They are then cleaned. Finally, they are packed in airtight bags to make them practical and prolong their life.

Siwak is mainly used by Muslims, who are well aware of its invaluable benefits. In India too, this natural product is widely used, as well as in the Maghreb, Africa and the Arabian Peninsula.

This accessory is an essential part of oral hygiene. In fact, theWHO recommended its use as long ago as 1986, before reiterating its recommendation in 2000. What's more, an American study conducted in 2003 proved the effectiveness of siwek over a conventional toothbrush.

From an aesthetic point of view, miswak takes the form of a stem. It is surrounded by a thin bark that protects the inside from microbes. The many fibres, which are also present, act as "toothbrush bristles". They contain substances that are essential for oral hygiene.
