Oil Pulling Method

Today is Dentist’s Day! How many people actually enjoy going to the dentist? What makes us dread the dentist so much? And how are we supposed to remember to floss, brush, and mouthwash twice a day, everyday?! We don’t have the answer to ANY of these questions, but we do have the answer to improving your overall oral hygiene… COCONUT OIL!

“Oil pulling is a practice dating back thousands of years, having originated with Ayurvedic medicine. When oil pulling is combined with the antimicrobial power of coconut oil, you have one very powerful health tool.” says Dr. Mercola, a renowned natural health expert.


Oil Pulling Directions:

  1. Place a tablespoon of Kelapo coconut oil into your mouth and allow it to melt into a liquid form.
  2. Gently swish the oil back and forth for about 15 to 20 mins, be sure to not swish very fast as it may make your jaw sore.

  3. Spit the oil out when finished, make sure no oil gets ingested.
  4. Rinse your mouth with warm water.

The best time of day to do this is in the morning before you brush your teeth or eat anything. This method will leave your teeth feeling fresh and clean. “Coconut oil, a natural antibiotic when digested, destroys the bacteria that cause tooth decay, researchers at the Athlone Institute of Technology, Ireland, reported at the Society for General Microbiology’s autumn conference at the University of Warwick, England, today. They added that the antibiotic component in digested coconut oil could be added to dental care products.”
