When it comes to mouth
maintenance, you can't get more old
school than a toothpick. These handsomely-
packaged picks are crafted from sustainably
harvested white birch wood and infused with essential oils and natural flavors like lemon and single malt scotch. But our favorite for fresh breath is the icy-hot cinnamint.
