Coconut Oil Pulling for a Pretty Smile
Is a stunning white smile something you’ve always wanted but haven’t yet achieved? Does the idea of getting the pricey and oftentimes painful process of teeth whitening have you thinking twice about a mouth full of pretty pearls? Coconut oil pulling just may be your answer.
We heard about this trend a few years back and it’s still going strong so that gives us some reassurance about its validity.
Coconut oil pulling is an ancient technique that has Ayurvedic origins. It consists of swishing a tablespoon of pure virgin coconut oil in your mouth on an empty stomach for 20 minutes. This action draws impurities out of the body and the mouth which increases your overall wellness and health. In addition, to strengthening gums and removing bacteria, oil pulling results also naturally whitens teeth. Oil cuts through plaque and removes toxins without disturbing the gums.
We’re fans of this natural technique. Be sure to get pure virgin coconut oil in order to get the maximum benefits. A beautiful whitened smile is just a swish away.
