What Is Oil Pulling And Why’s It Better Than Old-School Mouthwash For Kids?
"Oil pulling" is an Ayurvedic health practice which has now been clinically proven as effective. It involves swishing an oil around your mouth for 5-15 minutes to help eliminate stains on your teeth and help to reduce bacteria levels in the mouth, resulting in healthier teeth and gums.
Oil pulling has been a staple method of oral hygiene in India and Asia for thousands of years.
Practiced by millions worldwide, this effective and easy method of oral hygiene is becoming more and more mainstream as western health professionals, athletes and celebrities increasingly practice oil pulling as a natural effective method of improving oral health - with the benefit of whitening teeth.
There are many oils you can use for oil pulling with some more favourable than others. The typical oils people use are:
- Coconut oil
- Sesame oil
- Olive oil
- a mixture of all three
Each gives similar results but there are several reasons why coconut oil reigns supreme as the most effective oil to use for oil pulling:
Coconut oil has the nicest taste. It is rich in antioxidants and lauric acid making it very good for the body and mind.
It’s a natural moisturiser so improves skin and gum health - and can be flavoured for a more enjoyable oil pulling experience.
Natural stain remover so good at tackling tea, coffee and wine stains
Coconut oil removes plaque resulting in increased effectiveness when you brush
