What is oil pulling?
Oil pulling, also known as ‘gundusha’ or ‘kavala’, is an ancient Ayurvedic procedure for dental health that involves swishing oil in your mouth on an empty stomach for up to twenty minutes. Oil pulling has been used for centuries in coconut producing countries as a cosmetic aid.
What does Oil Pulling do? How does it work?
Oil pulling works because it contains lauric acid. Whilst swishing coconut oil for up to twenty minutes, this process draws out toxins from within the body to improve one’s overall health but primarily to encourage better oral hygiene.
How do I use the sachet?
Using one sachet per day, either warm the sachet between your hands for thirty seconds to enable a more liquid mouth feel, or it can be used immediately and squeezed straight into your mouth (coconut oil is solid at room temperature) and then since your mouth is a warm place it will melt very quickly. Think of a similar motion to when using mouth wash, but less vigorous as you need to keep up the pace for up to twenty minutes! Ensure you are covering both the front and back of your mouth and teeth and try not to swallow any of the oil as this is what contains the toxins.
