For best effects, you should use a good quality oil, and this inexpensive treatment will cause no side-effects, but multiple health benefits instead.
When it comes to oils, we recommend the use of coconut oil, which is one of the healthiest ingredients you can use, and will additionally boost the effects. Plus, coconut oil is loaded with lauric acid, which is well-known for its antimicrobial properties.
These are some reasons more to try oil pulling with coconut oil to promote oral health:
- Cures tooth decay
- Kills bad breath
- Destroys bacteria and fights gum infections
- Breaks through the plaque
- Whitens teeth
- Heals bleeding gums
- Prevents cavities
This is how to use coconut oil for oil pulling
Make sure to oil pull first thing in the morning right after you get out of bed before you brush your teeth or drink anything.
You should swish a teaspoon of solid organic coconut oil in the mouth, and let it melt. Keep it for 20 minutes. You can do it during the day, before meals as well, in the case of severe dental problems or gum infections.
Keep it for 20 minutes, which is enough time for the oil to be absorbed by the gums and kill bacteria and plaque, but insufficient for the body to reabsorb the toxins again.
Spit out the oil in the trash and immediately rinse your mouth out with warm water (you can use salt water for added antimicrobial properties).
In the end, brush your teeth as usually, to remove all bacteria left.
