4. Coconut Oil Pulling
Rejuvenate your smile in 2017 with natural oil pulling from Australian company Coco Whirl. Made with organic virgin coconut oil and natural cherry flavor, Coco Whirl is holistic, gluten-free and convenient. The practice of oil pulling started in India thousands of years ago. Oil pulling is said to draw out toxins in the body, primarily to improve oral health but also to improve overall health. Simply whirl the oil in your mouth for 5-10 minutes, spit the oil out when finished (not down the drain, as the oil can clog) and then brush your teeth normally. It has the added benefit of whitening teeth naturally.
