Oral care

Coconut oil pulling is great for oral care! This oil is effective in attacking Streptococcus Mutans bacteria which causes cavities. It is rich in medium chain triglycerides and high in lauric acid. 

In the morning, swish one spoon of coconut oil in your mouth for 20 minutes. This is long enough to break through plaque and bacteria but not long enough that the body starts re-absorbing the toxins and bacteria. The oil will get thicker and milky as it mixed with saliva during this time and it should be creamy-white when spit out. Please ensure you spit in a tissue and bin as directly spitting in the sink can cause drain clogging!

After this brush your teeth and begin your day.
