Whiten Your Teeth Naturally with Coconut Oil

April 15, 2015 2 min read

Let me introduce you to a simple daily practice that has been used for thousands of years for the maintenance of oral health! Oil pulling is the Ayurvedic practice of swishing high quality oil around the mouth as a way to remove harmful bacteria and keep it in tip top shape. Think of it as the new mouthwash.  Given that the mouth is the gateway to our body, it is important that we do whatever we can to maintain it. Like nutrients from food, bad bacteria can enter the blood through the mouth so it does make sense that lowering the risk could have an impact in other parts of the body. Many people claim that oil pulling has helped them to heal from everything from skin disorders, asthma, chronic headaches, inflammation, liver problems and hormone imbalances! Oil_pulling1swishOil Pulling Benefits:
  • Cleanses and detoxifies mouth and teeth
  • Helps prevent bad breath, gingivitis and tooth decay
  • Removes harmful bacteria, lessening the load on the immune system
  • Whitens teeth naturally without harmful chemicals
  • Relieves gum and tooth sensitivity
There are thousands of different types of bacteria in our mouths, they are the little guys that produce plaque! Oil pulling attracts and drastically reduces the amount of bacteria in the mouth that can cause common dental issues like gingivitis, cavities and bad breath. How does it work? Put 1-2 teaspoons of organic, cold pressed oil such as coconut, sunflower or sesame into the mouth. It does take a little getting used to, so just keep an open mind. Once its in there close your lips and make sure it doesn’t go down the back of your throat. Start to swish the oil in your mouth using a little force to pull it through the space between your teeth. The oils warm up and mix with the saliva, thinning it out and making it easier to pull. As the oil is swished around the mouth it begins to pull toxins from the saliva, the surfaces of the teeth, gums and tongue, making this a very detoxifying process!
