A hint of orange around the snow covered peaks announces the advent of the morning sun. Green meadows with dew drops glistening like pearls carpet the land beneath the mountains. The fragrance of pine and fresh grass mingle with the early morning air to create an intoxicating effect. The train curves around the bend, hugging to the rails and chugging away in joy.
This is one of the blissful experiences that only travel can bring, you think, as you take in the beautiful vistas that parade before you as the train meanders languorously towards its destination.
What a sublime experience of the senses to wake up in the morning, you think.
You open your mouth to take in gulps of the fresh mountain air and that is when the entire dreamlike and surreal scene seems to crash in front of you like a house of cards.
You feel a sour taste in the mouth and your breath stinks. The spicy dinner that you had the previous night ensures that your mouth feels awful. The morning breath syndrome is haunting you again and souring your early morning divine experience. Apparently, as you slept, millions of odour producing bacteria have had a ball in your dry mouth and no wonder your breath reeks when you get up.
Is this not a common scenario with us travelers? Aren’t we all looking for remedies to ensure that our early morning breath does not impinge on the lovely morning experiences?
Then, one fine morning arrived a hamper from a brand whose name itself evokes imagery of pristine landscapes and the freshness of mountain air along with the goodness of nature. We received samples of Mouthwash from Himalaya to try out.
Himalaya Mouthwash Review
Three bottles of Himalaya mouthwash nestled in the midst of a bunch of fake onions, freshness next to the symbol of obnoxious odour. Of course, no disrespect meant to the flavorful onions!
The Himalaya mouthwash range consists of 3 variants and each of them come with a unique flavor.
Himalaya Sparkling White Mouthwash
The natural goodness of Papaya and Pineapple comes alive in the Himalaya Sparkling White Mouthwash. A natural enzyme called Bromelian which is found in Pineapple acts as a whitening agent of the teeth enamel and removes stains gently and effectively leaving the teeth sparkling white within two weeks. Papaya has an enzyme called Papain, which again is s mild whitening agent and helps in removing stains. One rinse with the Himalaya Sparkling White Mouthwash keeps germs away for a period of 12 hours. There is no chemical bleach formula or alcohol in this Himalaya mouthwash. It also is free from fluoride.
Himalaya Active Fresh Mouthwash
The freshness of mint and Fennel merge together in the Himalaya Active Fresh Mouthwash to give a refreshing and cooling feeling in the mouth. Fennel oil contains Terpenes which has anti-microbial properties and helps in fighting germs. Fennel also helps in tightening the gums because of its astringent properties. Fresh breath for a long time is ensured by the analgesic properties of Mint and it is also a coolant which leaves a cooling and fresh taste in the mouth and provides a lasting freshness to the breath.
Himalaya Complete Care Mouthwash
As the name suggests, this mouthwash is a complete health package for oral health. Embellished by nature’s gifts to mankind, Neem, Pomegranate and Miswak, the mouthwash protects the teeth against germs and plaque and also ensures a fresh breath for 12 hours after rinsing. Miswak is the weapon that fights plaque and prevents tooth decay and also strengthens the gums. Neem is a herb that ensures total oral hygiene and possesses anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties. Pomegranate is another ingredient that helps in fighting dental plaque and also has astringent and anti-bacterial properties.
We found that the Himalaya mouthwash – all 3 variants from Himalaya start yielding results within two weeks of use. Early morning oral woes have vanished with the use of these Himalaya mouthwash variants. Mornings are as fresh as the pine scented air of the mountains and the Himalaya Mouthwash has ensured that the romance of early morning travel does not get soured by the obnoxious presence of bad breath.
Today our packing list for all our travels, whether short or long, whether international or within the country is incomplete without the inclusion of the Himalaya Mouthwash. Our backpacks now pack in a lot of freshness which go with us wherever we roam. Be it the deserts of Rajasthan, the lovely environs of the Alps, the romantic by lanes of Venice or the majestic grandeur of the Himalayan Ranges, the Himalaya Mouthwash come along with us.
We were asked to try out the Himalaya range of Mouthwashes and provided samples. However the experience and opinions are our own.
