Coconut oil has become a buzz beauty ingredient recently and you can’t go anywhere without someone singing the praises of this multi-tasking oil. From keeping your skin hydrated to maintaining silky hair, and even cleansing, this oil does it all, but there’s a more novel use for coconut oil that you may not be familiar with – oil pulling.
Oil pulling is basically gargling with oil to maintain oral health and whiter teeth. Said to pull out toxins, kill bacteria and improve general health the roots of oil pulling – also known as kavala or gundusha – lie in ancient Ayurvedic medicine, but Cocowhite has brought this concept bang up to date, taking it into the mainstream. I’ve had the pleasure of trying this out for you recently and am bringing you the results today.
