Hello, YOU Series readers! Let me start by introducing myself. My name is Erin and I am one of the co-founders of Kismet Essentials. At Kismet Essentials our aim is to bring you natural health essentials to compliment your daily lifestyle. That was the idea behind our first product, Coco Rinse, which is a 14-day mint flavoured coconut oil pulling kit.
So what exactly is oil pulling and how will you benefit from it?
If you haven’t heard of coconut oil pulling before, let us give you a quick update. Coconut oil pulling is when you take a tablespoon of coconut oil, or one of our pre-portioned mint flavoured sachets, and swirl it in your mouth for 10-20 minutes. Afterwards, you spit the oil out and brush and floss as usual. Oil pulling with coconut oil comes with so many wonderful health benefits. Today we’re so excited to be able to share our love of oil pulling with you. Keep reading below to find out 10 ways oil pulling can benefit not only your health but your life as well.
1. It will make your teeth whiter
Oil pulling with coconut oil helps to break down and remove the plaque and tartar build up on your teeth, which makes them look brighter and whiter.
2. It can help save you money
Coconut oil pulling is quite affordable in comparison to other whitening practices. A visit to the dentist for chemically whitened teeth is not only expensive, but it can increase tooth sensitivity as well.
3. It will make your next trip to the dentist easier
Oil pulling with coconut oil helps to loosen and remove plaque and tartar build-up on teeth. Therefore, this will mean that your next trip to the dentist for a cleaning might just be less painful and time-consuming. Your dental hygienist will thank you too!
4. It will help you relax in the morning
Many oil pullers find that oil pulling in the mornings is quite relaxing and meditative. This is because your mind has to subconsciously work to swirl the oil around in your mouth. This allows your mind to slow down, relax, and just focus on the task at hand rather than your upcoming to-do list or current worries for the day.
5. It can help cure your hangover
If you had a few too many glasses of wine the night before and wake up with a slight hangover, try oil pulling. It can help to remove excess toxins and bad bacteria from your mouth, helping to cleanse away the impurities you consumed the night before.
6. It can increase your energy
Oil pulling can work to remove toxins and bad bacteria from your mouth and body which may be making you feel lethargic. Start practicing it in the mornings to see if it helps perk you up a bit.
7. It can help clear up your skin conditions
Many of our customers report that after using Coco Rinse their skin is glowing, feels softer, and has been cleared up of acne and other skin issues they’ve been fighting. Oil pulling has been used for many years to relieve skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis as well.
8. It will give you an excuse for some “me” time
You know what the other benefit of oil pulling is? No one can talk to you while you’re doing it. Since you’re too busy swirling and swishing away to answer, your family (boyfriend, husband, kids, mother in law… you name it) will just have to learn to wait until you’re finished to bombard you with questions. Ahhh… 10-20 minutes of peace.
9. It can reduce your headaches
Our bodies are exposed to a variety of toxins on a daily basis. As your mouth is the first point of contact for many of those toxins, they can build up in your mouth over time, which can cause headaches. The fatty acids in coconut oil can bind to these toxins, helping you to dispel them when you spit the oil out. Over time, this can help relieve your headaches.
10. It will give you fresher breath
The lauric acid which is found in coconut oil is anti-bacterial. This means it has the ability to fight against bad bacteria which can cause bad breath. In fact, scientific studies have shown that oil pulling is as equally effective as using Chlorhexidine mouthwash to fight the bacteria that cause bad breath.
