I started oil pulling about three years  ago and saw some amazing results in my oral health in general. I had lots of work done in my back teeth before and it seemed like I had new cavities every few months. After starting oil pulling my dentist noticed no more gum bleeding and was saying that I was brushing better while in reality I just added oil pulling to my daily oral care routine.  It’s been few years now that I didn’t need any more fillings and root canals and that’s thanks to better nutrition, oil pulling and the help of my holistic dentist.

Oil pulling is a holistic healing remedy that has been used for thousands of years. It involves putting about a tablespoon of oil in your mouth, then swishing it around your teeth for 10-20 minutes. This unbelievably effective procedure has been used for centuries as a traditional India remedy to:

  • Whitens teeth
  • Soothes throat dryness
  • Prevents cavities
  • Heals cracked lips
  • Boosts Immune System
  • Improves acne
  • Strengthens gums and jaw
  • Cures tooth decay
  • Kills bad breath
  • Heals bleeding gums
  • Prevents heart disease
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Spearmint essential oil

Spearmint essential oil: Spearmint is milder than Peppermint and is characterized by an invigorating fragrance that is uplifting and calming. I love the taste of it in my mouth.

Myrrh essential oil: Myrrh has a long history of use in skin care for its moisturizing properties to cleanse dry skin therefore it’s great to support healthy gum tissues.

Clove essential oil: Clove is a natural numbing oil. It’s used in so many dental products. It has a scent that is very warm and inviting. Always dilute Clove when using topically.
