Oil pulling is an ancient detoxification therapy from Ayurvedic texts; it rapidly improves oral health and can help resolve many chronic diseases. It simply involves swishing your mouth with oil. Plaque and bacteria get stuck to the oil. It encourages increased flow of mucous from the throat and sinuses, which is one of the body’s best methods of removing toxins. Using infused oils adds healing power to this oil: Thyme leaf has traditionally been used as an antiseptic, which can reduce toothaches and bacteria buildups in the mouth. Plantain is a wonderful rescue remedy for inflammation in the mouth. Our essential oils for oral health have excellent antimicrobial potency against the bacteria responsible for tooth decay and gum disease.
