New Year, New You, Tip 15: Benefits of Oil Pulling, Flossing, and Brushing Your Teeth

Oil Pull

Oil pulling balances mouth bacteria to support normal healthy breath. You can use plain coconut oil, DIY it with essential oils of your choice, or keep it simple and use our peppermint oil infused Oil Pulling Oil.


Oil pulling works because coconut oil is naturally anti-microbial due to the high levels of lauric acid. The lauric acid binds to the microbial cells and then you spit them out, supporting healthy, happy gums.


While it may not be a health concern, we know that having whiter teeth is important to many. The lauric acid is armed for battle with normally occurring stains on teeth caused by the food and drinks we love (hello, coffee with Skinny!) 


The two leading professional groups — the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Periodontology, for specialists in gum disease and implants — cited other studies as proof of their claims that flossing prevents buildup of gunk known as plaque, early gum inflammation called gingivitis, and tooth decay.


Brushing helps you to have a great looking smile, brighter whiter looking teeth and fresh breath. They are an important part in preventing gum disease and reducing your risk of tooth loss and dental problems.
