Although it is well known that proper dental care consists of flossing, mouth washing and brushing, what is not so well known is the incredible benefits of mouth washing with coconut oil!

Known primarily as “oil pulling”, mouth washing with one tablespoon of oil pulls out and removes harmful bacteria that rots the teeth and causes bad breath.

Coconut oil though, solidifies below 75 degrees Fahrenheit (24 degrees Celsius), but the way to remedy this is to either subject it to a bit of heat or mix the coconut oil with sesame oil, which alone is also beneficial in relation to removing harmful and unwanted bacteria from the mouth.

Although this is growing in popularity today, it is actually an ancient Ayurvedic medicine [a traditional Indian system] that dates back 3,000 years.

In addition to ridding us of harmful bacteria, coconut oil can also help white our teeth.
