Natural Oral Care


Swish, swish! Let’s talk Natural Oral Care; because you need good teeth and gums to eat, speak clearly and even ward off some medical disorders. Plus, with a new global pandemic, many do not want to have to go to the dentist right now.

While NOTHING replaces going and having your teeth professionally cleaned. It is still good to take care of your mouth in-between visits. So that you have to go anymore than you naturally have to.



The problem is that some products on the market to help care for our teeth and gums include very harsh ingredients. The whole goal is to keep bad breath, tooth decay and gum problems at bay. To accomplish this, you MUST prevent plaque from growing. Plaque is basically bacteria, a clear thin film that accumulates daily and sticks to your tooth enamel. If left unchecked plaque can harden and turn to tartar.

This where a natural mouthwash comes into play. Using mouthwash daily can help to kill bacteria that causes plaque. And one helpful natural mouthwash method many have found useful for a number of years is good old Coconut Oil Pulling.

Oil pulling for mouth care comes with many benefits. A few right of the bat are:

  • Reduces inflammation as well as bleeding gums
  • Helps clear the sinuses
  • Kills bacteria that causes bad breath
  • Whitens teeth

Cool right? But the question now is, how does one perform coconut oil pulling? Here’s how!

DIRECTIONS: Before brushing your teeth, swish 1 Tablespoon of Coconut Oil in your mouth for 15 minutes. If the texture or taste isn’t a vibe, try adding a little lemon essential oil for a bit of sweetness as well as EXTRA pathogen fighting power. Spit out into a proper receptacle then brush your teeth. Afterwards, your mouth should be clean as a whistle!
