Coconut Oil & Spearmint Mouthwash
NATURAL OIL PULLING WITH ORGANIC COCONUT OIL:
Naturally antibacterial Oil Pulling blends have been around for thousands of years as an Indian Ayurvedic remedy. We have recreated the perfect blend adding steam distilled essential oils, selected from certified organic crops and farms so that our oral care can benefit from their natural antimicrobial and soothing properties by reducing the number of harmful bacteria in the mouth.
BLENDED WITH ORGANIC SPEARMINT ESSENTIAL OIL:
An oil pulling mouthwash with Spearmint Leaves Essential Oil, steam distilled and certified organic. Its properties are very similar to that of Peppermint Oil: it is a strong antiseptic, eliminating germs and helping any wounds heal quicker.
FOR BEST RESULTS:
Take 1-2 tablespoons of oil, swish it around the mouth for 5 up to 20 minutes. Spit into the sink- Microbes are picked up as though they are being drawn to a powerful magnet. Bacteria hiding under crevices in the gums, pores and tubules within the teeth are sucked out of their hiding places and held firmly in the oil. The longer you push and pull the oil through your mouth, the more microbes are pulled free.
WE ALWAYS CHOOSE NATURAL INGREDIENTS:
We believe we don't need to use artificial, synthetically made chemicals to maintain clean teeth or kill bad bacteria in our mouth. Instead we believe we can source each ingredient from pure and organic sources.

What is Oil Pulling?
Oil pulling is an Ayurvedic tradition that has existed for thousands of years and more recently a substantial amount of research has discovered that this practice is extremely beneficial for both oral and overall health. The concept of oil pulling is simple, by swilling the mouthwash around you can remove the toxins currently residing in your mouth, leaving your mouth cleaner and healthier.
What do I do?
Take 1-2 tablespoons of Mouthwash and without gargling or swallowing, swill it around your mouth, teeth and gums for 10-20 minutes. For the oil to have full effect it needs to be swilled for long enough that the oil starts to turn in to a white milky consistency. When this has happened, you know that it has successfully drawn the bacteria out of your mouth. We recommend to oil pull first thing in the morning when waking before eating or drinking anything.
There are two reasons to do so in the morning, firstly some people find it difficult to do so on a full stomach and secondly after eating your mouth produces digestive enzymes, if you oil pull after eating your body will not get full use of these digestive enzymes. We also recommend spitting the mouthwash into a bin to avoid clogging up your sink.
How does it work?
Microbes are picked up as though they are being drawn to a powerful magnet. Bacteria hiding under crevices in the gums, pores and tubules within the teeth are sucked out of their hiding places and held firmly in the oil. The longer you push and pull the oil through your mouth, the more microbes are pulled free. The oil needs to be swished around long enough for it to turn a milky white, which indicates that the bacteria has been "pulled" off.
