Brushing your teeth with something as sweet as honey sounds counterproductive - we know! Honey was a common and favoured form of oral hygiene in Ancient Egypt for thousands of years, and was introduced with much success, to the Romans.
But medical grade Manuka honey has such impressive antimicrobial properties, it is still used in Western hospitals every day.
In a study completed by the Orthodontic Department at Al-Azhar University in Cairo, when people were given honey to chew on, bacteria was significantly reduced, and the growth of it was significantly inhibited. (Link)
Considering the power of normal honey, the antimicrobial properties of Manuka honey are mind blowing. They cleanse the mouth of nasties, protecting them from damaging bacteria, the same way a regular toothpaste would. However, when combined with Manuka oil the strength of the toothpaste is doubled, without it becoming harsher on gums.
So that means sparkling, healthy teeth, and with the help of added aloe vera, Melora’s Double Action Toothpaste soothes, and calms gums.
Goodbye plaque and bad breath, and hello fresh, pearly smiles!
