Oil pulling or swishing is an ancient Ayurvedic therapy believed to promote oral health and detoxification.
The practice of oil pulling involves the use of Organic Cold pressed Coconut oil (food-grade). Coconut oil is an agent for “pulling” away bacteria build up in the mouth and gums.
Oil pulling works by cleaning (detoxifying) the oral cavity in a similar way that soap cleans dirty dishes. It literally sucks the dirt (toxic) out of your mouth and creates a clean, antiseptic oral environment that contributes to the proper flow of dental liquid that is needed to prevent cavities and disease.
