How to Whiten Your Teeth Naturally with Oil Pulling

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

I’ve been getting tons of questions about oil-pulling from my clients, lately (I blame it on the GOOP effect) so I put together a short video of what it is and how I use it to whiten my teeth naturally and freshen my breath. 

Oil-pulling comes from the Ayurvedic tradition, and sounds a little weird at first, but I promise you’ll get used to it in a couple of days, and even enjoy doing it once you see the fast results.

Personally, it has become a part of my daily morning routine, just like brushing my teeth, and I enjoy doing it because I know it works.

Check out the video for the full scoop:

As mentioned in the video, you can use any oil, as long as it’s not roasted, although I prefer unrefined coconut oil or sesame oil. 

If you know someone who uses whitening strips or other products to whiten their teeth, share this video with them, for a natural, and gentler alternative that is just as effective (without getting sensitive teeth!). 

Try oil pulling for a week, and then come back here and leave a comment below to let us know how it worked for you!

  1. What an amazing trick. I love taking coconut oil as a suplement, is it okay to swallow it? Also, is it alright to brush your teeth after the 15 minutes?

    1. Hi Christine! Great question. You definitely don’t want to swallow the oil after oil pulling, as it is loaded with all the bacteria/toxins, so spit it out when you’re done. Yes, on the brushing the teeth after. You want to make sure you thoroughly clean your mouth out, so after a good rinse, you can brush if you like.

    2. HI Christine, You definitely don’t want to swallow the oil after you do the il pulling, as it contains all the bacteria you cleaned from your mouth. And yes, you can brush your teeth after you rinse really well. Let me know how you like it!

  2. I’ve never tried oil pulling, but I’ve heard about it as a result of reading about paleo. I think a great way to naturally whiten teeth is to brush with salt and baking soda, though not every day is it’s too abrasive.

  3. Hi , I just subscribed to your page . I am in my mid 50’s … an age that your teeth shows your age. However, I have been practicing the oil pulling for the past 10 years and it shows . I have whiter teeth, no bad breath and my hygienist tells me that cleaning my teeth is boring .

    1. Hi Lucia! Thanks for subscribing and sharing your experience with it! It is really amazing. I’m curious what other things do you do as part of oral care routine?
