Pulling For Pearly Whites?
Hearing all about this oil pulling craze? Oil pulling isn't actually a new trend, but an ancient Ayurvedic method of ridding toxins from the body. Though it's recently come to popularity as a teeth-whitening trend, coconut oil pulling, known as "Kavala" in Sanskrit, has health and beauty benefits that range from detoxification to clearer skin. If you haven't heard of oil pulling, you can learn the simple steps with our Oil Pulling "How-To" Guide.
Oral Problems? Oil Pull!
It's true, oil pulling is great for your oral hygiene. It's known to capture the germs in your mouth that cause cavities, gum diseases and bad breath. Coconut oil has tons of antibacterial properties that help rid toxins, or ama, that lead to infection and disease. The melting oil scrubs stains clean from your teeth, leaving with you a fresher, brighter smile.
Oil Pull Your Way To Purity
Oil pulling is an all natural way to purify your body, without having to follow a crazy detox, eat raw food, or drink gallons of tea. It works because toxins make their way into the body through your mouth and leave you feeling imbalanced. So flushing them out helps lower stress levels, keeping skin clearer and staving off migraines. Oil pulling can leave you feel more energized and help you lose weight, too, since your body isn't always working to clear toxins.
Oil Pulling For Perfect Balance
Just like all things in Ayurveda, oil pulling is great for your body and for your mind and soul. Oil pulling is the perfect way to start setting aside 5 to 20 minutes for silence and meditation every morning! Other than the physical benefits, oil pulling with coconut oil can be as relaxing as hanging out on the beach among the palm trees.
