Oil pulling is the ancient Ayurvedic ritual of pulling or swishing oil through the teeth to support overall oral health and hygiene. Use daily to strengthen gums, whiten teeth, eradicate plaque, and draw toxins out of the body. Oil pulling is also beneficial for the TMJ.
We use sesame seeds grown and cold pressed in India to ensure that our sesame oil is authentic, pure, and in line with Ayurvedic tradition. Sesame oil is known in Ayurveda as the “King of Oils” and is the most used oil throughout this medical system. It is a rejuvenating tonic for the hair, skin, nervous system, teeth, and gums. Sesame oil has antibacterial properties which help keep the mouth clean and healthy, and it also nourishes the gum line. Sesame oil has been used traditionally for oil pulling for thousands of years to reverse receding gums and support overall oral health.
Kalpavriksha is the Sanskrit term for coconut, it literally translates to the “tree of life” or “the tree that meets all life’s needs”. You can eat it, apply it topically, drink it, use it to improve brain function, its uses are endless! In our oil-pulling oil, coconut oil facilitates absorption of calcium which helps in developing strong teeth. It also stops tooth decay due to its anti-fungal action. Coconut oil contains the fatty acid, lauric acid, which has antimicrobial properties; thus, it aids in reducing harmful bacteria in the mouth and reduces plaque. Using coconut oil for oil pulling is a beneficial way to keep the gums healthy, teeth white, and eliminate bad breath.
The main active ingredient in turmeric, curcumin, provides antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, astringent, and antioxidant properties to your dental care routine. The Journal of Contemporary Dental Practice confirmed what Ayurveda has known for thousands of years, that turmeric is a powerful ally to counterbalance signs and symptoms of plaque build-up and gingivitis. Other Western scientific studies have proved that turmeric helps to reduce pain associated with a toothache. Ayurveda also explains that turmeric can in fact help whiten the teeth! It’s true, that gorgeous golden color may leave a yellowish stain on your fingers or clothes but it actually helps to whiten and brighten the teeth.
Did you know that our mouths have over 700 types of bacteria within them? Some of the bacteria are beneficial while others are harmful. Rather than stripping away all the bacteria, as synthetic mouthwashes do, clove uses its intuitive wisdom to maintain good bacteria for a healthy mouth biome while eradicating harmful bacteria, including Helicobacter pylori bacteria that promotes stomach ulcers. Eugenol, a main active component in clove, gives this fragrant herb its analgesic and anesthetic properties. In short, clove is excellent for relieving pain associated with toothache and inflammation while also maintaining overall oral hygiene.
