New to Oil Pulling? Read This First
Oil Pulling is a traditional Ayurvedic practice that involves swishing specific oils in the mouth for a period of 2-3 minutes.Read More
This practice is similar to what most people know as mouth washing. The only difference is in the solution. Instead of swishing mouthwash between your teeth and gums, you use special oils.
These oils are natural and help attract and pull out toxins lurking in your mouth like a magnet.
Over time, oil pulling can help improve your oral health naturally.
And the benefits of oil pulling don't stop with a squeaky clean mouth.
Oil pulling can promote a ton of other amazing health benefits, such as:
- Weight loss
- Fresher-smelling breath
- Healthier teeth and gums
- Thicker and more lustrous hair
- Radiant, youthful-looking skin
The Best Oils for Oil Pulling
We've found that a blend of pure sesame oil, sunflower oil, coconut oil, and peppermint oil works best here so we distilled this down to the perfect ratio to balane the 3 Humors (Doshas)
Whenever you’re choosing an oil for oil pulling, look for ones that are:
- Made without artificial preservatives, flavors, or colors
- Sourced from 100% natural, pure ingredients that are verified and tested by a third party
Our oils check all of those boxes and more since you also won’t find any harsh tastes or after tastes. Instead, you’ll be left with a nice, clean, minty, and refreshing mouth after each rinse.
Many customers also report a shinier, brighter smile.

Get Started With Oil Pulling
Before you can enjoy the benefits of oil pulling, you must first purchase a high quality oil that was designed for this purpose only.
Our oil pulling oils are specifically formulated using ancient Ayurvedic principles. We combine this knowledge with high quality ingredients sourced from a small alliance of honest farmers who span the globe.
By going straight to the source, we’re able to keep costs down without sacrificing the quality of our oils.
We also take the extra step to have our oils independently verified and tested by a third party lab. This ensures that our oils are pure and always meet or exceed our high standards.
Our oils are also 100% organic and alcohol-free. You won’t find any artificial or irritating preservatives, fragrances, or colors. When it comes to our oils, we follow a strict nothing added, nothing removed policy so every batch is just as Mother Nature intended.
After you select the right oil, you’re ready to start swishing.
Oil pulling is best done early in the morning before fluids or food have been consumed.
Before eating or brushing your teeth, pour approximately 1 tablespoon of oil into your mouth and gently swish it around.
It’s important to note that you should never swallow this mixture as it contains both toxins and bacteria that your body should not be absorbing.
With that said, keep swishing the oil for a period of 2 to 3 minutes. You can gradually increase this over time and swish as long as 15 minutes. Initially, it’s important to keep practicing oil pulling for only as long as it feels comfortable for you and nothing more.
Once the mixture turns into a watery texture or your neck or jaw start to fatigue, you can spit out the oil to "pull” bacteria and other toxins from the body.
Next, rinse your mouth thoroughly with clean water. Follow this up by brushing your teeth as normal using a toothbrush and toothpaste.
In the beginning, you may find that mucus starts to build up in the back of your throat as you’re pulling.
If this happens, expel both the oil and the mucus before completing your oil pulling session. From there, simply add new oil to your mouth and begin swishing as normal.
You can and should repeat this process every morning.
Many customers report a substantial difference in their oral health in as little as 6 weeks, although this varies between individuals.
