What is oil pulling?

Oil pulling, also known as ‘gundusha’ or ‘kavala’, is an ancient Ayurvedic procedure for dental health that involves swishing oil in your mouth on an empty stomach for up to 20 minutes. This process draws out toxins from within the body to improve one’s overall health but primarily to encourage better oral hygiene.

Coconut oil is the most popular choice of oil because it has impressive antibacterial properties in addition to lots of easily digestible, fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamin A, D, E and K. Vitamin A is great for building a strong immune system, vitamin D strengthens bones and teeth, vitamin E has antioxidant properties for the skin and vitamin K reduces blood clotting. Also, coconut oil has a nicer taste than other vegetable-based oils. Our range has a fresh minty flavour because it contains 1% organic peppermint oil so there is no need to worry about any nasty taste!

You should swish the oil around your mouth quite gently in order to avoid getting a stiff jaw. Some people new to oil pulling find twenty minutes to be a bit of a struggle and if this is the case why not try to keep the oil in your mouth for around 10-15 minutes and build this up as you become more used to the feeling. As you are swishing the product around your mouth the oil will double in size as it draws in saliva and toxins. When time is up, empty the contents of your mouth and rinse your mouth out with some warm water before brushing as you normally would.

How does it work?

When oil pulling, the oil in your mouth binds itself to the plaque on the teeth and therefore when spitting out the oil you are removing bacteria from your mouth. Oil pulling is a particularly efficient way to reduce this kind of bacteria because the plaque on your teeth is fat-soluble as opposed to water soluble. This means that the lipids must dissolve in fats, which is why coconut oil is the perfect remedy unlike other water-based products on the market.

What are the results?

Clinical trials carried out by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) have shown that the benefits of coconut oil pulling include:

  • Improved oral hygiene
  • The prevention of cavities and gingivitis
  • Reduced oral bacteria
  • Reduced plaque
  • Whiter teeth (Please remember that each person’s teeth will react differently to Chi White and that response times may vary)

But, there’s also some beauty in knowing that food is such a universal language. Something that we all agree on.

When Anisa Kazemi shared her blog, I Accidentally Ate the Whole Thing, with us this week, it really hit us that smoothie bowls, raw food and coconut water are just as relevant over in the gorgeous, hidden landscapes of New Zealand, as they are here in the hustle and bustle of London. We think that’s a pretty wonderful thought, don’t you?

For all we know, New Zealand could have invented the smoothie bowl! It’s anyone’s guess. (NB. If you actually know who invented the smoothie bowl, please enlighten us!)

So, in celebration of the worldwide, Instagram phenomenon that is the #smoothiebowl, we wanted to share this gorgeous recipe with you from Anisa’s blog (from all the way up there ^ in those gorgeous NZ mountains… Not jealous at all.)
