When I first heard about Oil Pulling I was completely skeptical. You put a lump of coconut oil in your mouth, wait for it to melt and then swish it around for 10-15 minutes and that is supposed to be good for your teeth? I didn’t believe it. At the time, it was pointed out to me that I was often skeptical of other natural wellness products such as essential oils, the “oil method” for washing my face and using natural oils and butters as moisturizers.
However, as I tried these other natural alternatives, I slowly became a convert. I use essential oils for everything, I only wash my face with jojoba oil and all of the body products I use are made from all-natural ingredients.
With this in mind, it was obviously, I HAD to try Oil Pulling as well.
The First Time I Tried Oil Pulling
When I received my order from Keeko Oil, I was pretty excited to give Oil Pulling a try. I love fresh and minty flavours so I ordered Keeko Oil’s “Morning Mint”. Right from the start I was pleasantly surprised with the oil which was individually packaged in easy-to-open sachets. I warmed my first sachet between the palms of my hands and it was completely liquified in seconds.
When I put the oil in my mouth, I was thrilled by the flavour. The oil tasted great and it made swishing it around my mouth a breeze. I thought that I’d find swishing coconut oil around my mouth for 10-15 minutes unbearable, and I had intended to do the minimum 5 minutes that was suggested, but instead, I kept swishing while I went about my nightly routine of removing makeup, washing my face and getting ready for bed.
Before I knew it, the timer that I had set on my phone was going off and I’d been doing Oil Pulling for 15 minutes. It was super easy.
Reflecting on My Oil Pulling Experience
After that first night, I used Keeko Oil and practiced Oil Pulling every single night. What did I find? Well first of all, my teeth were super white! Like, glow-in-the-dark white! My smile looked amazing and I couldn’t help but show it off. Not only that, but my lips were softer and looked great too. Another awesome side-effect was really clear skin. I don’t have acne, but I’ve always had oily and breakout prone skin, but after oil pulling, my face looked great!
Oil Pulling With Keeko Oil
Using Keeko Oil made my first Oil Pulling experience super easy, enjoyable and delicious. The two-week supply of Oil Pulling sachets that I ordered were super affordable and the effects were better than at-home whitening strips, the flavour was way better and my teeth didn’t feel exposed and sensitive after I whitened them.
After my first Oil Pulling experience, I am definitely a convert. I love Oil Pulling, and my smile looks amazing!
