More and more people use coconut oil for something called oil pulling – which is kind of like using an oil as mouthwash. It is claimed to whiten your teeth, reduce harmful bacteria, make your breath fresher, and lead to great improvements in oral health.


Oil pulling involves the use of pure oils as agents for pulling harmful bacteria, fungus, and other organisms out of the mouth, teeth, gums, throat, and the whole body.


How to do it

1.   Put 1 tablespoon of organic coconut oil into your mouth.

2.   Swish for 15-20 minutes. Don’t swallow!

3.   Once the time is over, spit it in the trash or toilet (never the sink as the oil could solidify and clog your drain).

4.   Rinse your mouth with water and brush your teeth well.
