Hello beauties! Have you ever heard of coconut oil pulling? I just recently found out about it, even though, it's apparently an ancient tradition that has been used for centuries to whiten teeth and clean the bacteria and toxins from mouth, promoting healthy teeth and gums!
I'm a huge fan of natural oils and I'm using them religiously in my beauty routine (my favourite oils are line seed, argan, coconut, burdock, sapote, castor, jojoba, almond and rose oil), and I use them for my hair care, skin care and body care, so it wasn't difficult for me to addopt another way of using natural oils: as a part of my oral hygiene!
I always give a lot of importance to oral hygiene, I believe taking care of your teeth is so important.
Having that perfect smile and a set of white and healthy teeth makes you feel so much more confident, and makes you look so much more beautiful!
Especially during pregnancy it is advised to take extra care of your oral hygiene, because your gums can become weaker and teeth more prone to developing cavities and other dental problems.
Many products out there on the market contain harsh ingredients, but this coconut oil pulling is such a great, effective and natural method of protecting your teeth and gums.
I was delighted!
The brand which products I'm currently using for the Coconut oil pulling is Nutrient Wise and the coconut oil comes in little sachets that each contain 10 ml and are enough for one usage.
This product is designed particularly for the oil pulling as together with organic virgin coconut oil, contains peppermint oil, which leaves that pleasant fresh taste in your mouth.
Those are the only two ingredients this product contains, so as you can see, it's an all natural product!
Oil pulling- how it's done?
Oil pulling is actually very easy to do and it's something that can replace your mouth wash:
After brushing your teeth, cut sachet along dotted line and squeeze oil into mouth.
Then swirl it in your mouth for 5-15 minutes. Spit out immediately, rinse your mouth with warm water and smile! :-)
Coconut oil is the most indicated oil for pulling, as some other natural oils may actually stain your teeth, after a longer period of time.
You can use your regular coconut oil to do the pulling (the same you'd use for cooking), but I'm particularly fond of these little sachets as they also contain peppermint oil which gives you that fresh feeling, and also, they're handy to bring in your beauty case even on your trips!)
