Tom’s Tip of the Month – Mouthwashing with Coconut Oil

DentalWellness_CoconutOilMouthwash

I am often asked “What is the best time to use coconut oil as a mouthwash?”

Traditionally oil pulling was done first thing in the morning to remove toxins from the body.  However for your mouth, rinsing with coconut oil is beneficial any time –  day or night.

I have found that the best time of day is still the traditional morning.

 

My handy tip….

Before making your breakfast put coconut oil in your mouth, pull the oil between your teeth and rinse around your mouth.

Make your breakfast and when ready to eat, spit the coconut oil into your garden or a paper towel so that it doesn’t clog the drains.
