Last weekend I learned of something that I’d never heard of before…….Badger Bristle Toothbrushes! Now, the advantage of a badger bristle toothbrush is that the bristles are very soft. The disadvantage, as you may have already figured out, is that these bristles were……in theory……once attached to a badger……and that, in order to benefit from these bristles, one must put them in one’s mouth.
The dear friend who told me about these toothbrushes thought that I ought to try them myself…..and today one arrived in the mail. Imagine my delight! 🙂 I’ll report back after I’ve used it…..
While we’re on the subject of brushes, I’ve read from several sources that dry brushing is a good way to remove toxins from the body, the toxins that our bodies naturally shed through the skin each day. When I was in Whole Foods a couple of weeks ago, I saw a brush….made for this purpose (no badgers were sacrificed in this case!) and it was only $5 so I got one. I’ve read that we shed lots of toxins through our skin each day but I haven’t seen any……it does feel good, though! There’s an article about dry brushing on my Google Reader today (see link on the right under “Blogroll”).
