DHATRI MAAVILA Tooth paste Review

I detest mint in my tooth paste, especially the strong artificial mint smell. Most toothpastes here have that. It makes me run a mile when someone has just brushed their teeth and gives out that mint odour when they speak. I don't know why but I dislike it like crazy. It doesn't mean I love halitosis, yeeeeew! I'd run ten thousand miles further if someone's not brushing at all. It icks me out. So I was overjoyed when I was given this toothpaste as I love mango leaf flavour. It is made by Kerala-based Dhatri Ayurveda Kendra. I have some more reviews of their products coming up for you.
 This product I have to tell you is available even in U.A.E, Japan and Australia! I was stumped with that because I couldn't find it in Mangalore but it is available in Bangalore and all over Kerala. 


Make your teeth smile!
Healthy teeth is very much a part of healthy life. Historic tests and manuscripts tell that in former times man used to give much care and attention to the health of his teeth. Only natural products were used to maintain dental health. Leaves of mango trees and twigs of banyan trees were used in place of paste and brush by our ancestors. The early exponents of Ayurveda discovered that the brushing of teeth with ripe leaves of the mango tree would result in getting strong and shiny teeth, tight gums and fresh breath.
Now, the goodness of nature, is born once more, through Dhatri. Containing no chemicals. Warrier's Hospital and Panchakarma centre, with proud tradition of three centuries in the sphere of Ayurvedic care, has developed the Maavila Dantcare Tooth paste through years of continuous research. The toothpaste mainly contains cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, neem and mango leaves.

I love this paste because it's the best way of carrying your mango leaf with you wherever you want to go.
I have used mango leaves right from the tree from time to time and it's so refreshing for your teeth, this is a close substitute for it.
I wish it were as tangy as the mango leaf though.
It doesn't have that minty feel which I dislike in most other tooth pastes.
It smells very refreshing and green.
It leaves my sparklers clean and fresh. I enjoying brushing my teeth because of this little gem.
I can't say much about whitening as I don't have very yellow teeth. It does a good job in cleaning.
It's a pastel green colour and not stark white.
I have already re-stocked on this as it is not easily available where I live.
I have suggested it to my entire family and they all like using it too.

Hole in my wallet: Rs.80
