There's no doubt the benefits of oil pulling are fantastic—whiter teeth, fresher breath, headache help, and even clearer sinuses. But if you're like us, the thought of swishing oil around your mouth for nearly an entire episode of Girls is less-than appealing. Thankfully, some new products have hit the market that are making getting the benefits of oil more attainable and way less disgusting.
Desert Essence is helping you get the benefits of oil pulling with their brand new mouthwash. Formulated with detoxifying organic virgin coconut oil and natural mint oil, this rinse also supports teeth and gum health with Australian tea tree oil, aloe, and peppermint and spearmint oils. Consider this the ultimate beginner's guide to oil pulling. Of course if you're ready to take it to the next step, the brand also offers a Dual Phase Pulling Rinse for your full-on oil pulling needs.
If a mouthwash is even too much for you, you can give coconut oil-infused toothpaste a shot to reap the benefits of the Ayurvedic practice. Jason's gluten-free and paraben-free formula contains virgin coconut oil to help deliver coconut's stellar antibacterial properties directly to your pearly whites. It's also full of magnesium, calcium, and peppermint oil to add to that sparkle. Flavors come in Coconut Cream, Coconut Eucalyptus, Coconut Mint, and Coconut Chamomile.
There you have it, Influensters. You don't have to totally step over into oil pulling territory to get some of the benefits of the ancient practice. It's as simple as brush and rinse!
