How to Whiten Your Teeth Naturally with Oil Pulling


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!
