Oil pulling is an ancient Indian Ayurvedic ritual dating back over 3000 years and involves swishing and swirling a spoonful of natural oil in your mouth to clean and detoxify teeth and gums, and promotes oral health.
This age – old remedy draws out toxins in your mouth, naturally whitens teeth, encourages healthy gums and removes bacteria. However, it doesn’t just benefit teeth. Oil pulling has an array of wonderful benefits that will make the “whole” you feel great!
Enjoy better sleep, clearer skin, alleviated allergies, increased energy and detoxifying your body – all in one!
OIL PULLING with COCONUT OIL
Our mouths are home to millions of bacteria, fungi, viruses and other toxins. Not all the bacteria in the mouth are harmful, some are beneficial and you need them for good health. However, a build up of bad bacteria can lead to disease and infections. The oil acts like a cleanser, pulling out the nasties before they get a chance to spread throughout the body.
Oil pulling was not traditionally used for teeth whitening, instead the benefits were seen to free up the immune system and strengthen it, as well as reducing stress, curtailing internal inflammation and encouraging well being. Other benefits include increased energy, detoxifying the body, reducing headaches and clearing the skin.
By swirling natural coconut oil in the mouth for 10 -20 minutes each day you’ll see amazing results, and have a brand new bright pearly white smile. Oil pulling works as the oil is able to cut through plaque, removing bacteria and other microorganisms from the mouth. As you swirl natural coconut oil around your mouth, unwanted and excess bacteria sticks to the oil and dissolves, as the bacteria in the mouth are attracted to the oil.
This is incredibly beneficial, as removing nasty bacteria from your mouth not only removes stains, but also assists in reducing the risk of gum inflammation, removing excess plaque, preventing plaque – induced gingivitis and is effective at reducing tooth cavities and keeping at bay bad breath.

HOW TO OIL PULL
Use one whole table spoon of natural, and preferably organic coconut oil. Oil pulling achieves best results when done in the mornings, first thing, before eating, drinking or brushing your teeth.
- Simply place a tablespoon of coconut oil into your mouth, tilting your head back slightly.
- Swish it around, pulling it through your teeth. Do this for at least 10 minutes, but preferably up to 20 minutes.
- Spit it out. After spitting it out, rinse your mouth well.
Repeat every morning for at least 14 day and up to 28 days, depending on what benefits you start noticing by day 14.
It’s better to avoid swallowing the oil, as it contains toxins and bacteria from your mouth. However, if you do, don’t worry, coconut oil is safe!
