Miswak is a naturally created toothbrush plucked from the salvadora persica tree.

The miswak, also called the “chewing stick,” looks like a painter’s brush rather than a normal toothbrush. There’s no curved edge at the tip covered with bristles, but rather a thin line of bark with the bristles pointing out straight ahead. You chew the tip at either end to create the bristles, which also releases oils within the wood that naturally fight plaque and protect your teeth.
