I was approached by the fab company Nutrient Wise a few weeks ago and I was asked if I would like to try out their Cocotox ‘Little Sachets Of Coconut Oil’ Pulling Kit so I have been oil pulling like mad these last two weeks and ditched the peroxide gels.
The Little Sachets Of Coconut Oil come in a resealable foil bag and there are fourteen 10 ml individually sealed sachets included which works out as one a day for two weeks. Oil pulling maintains teeth and gums keeping them in a clean & healthy condition, helps to remove plaque, toxins and bacteria from your teeth, gums and tongue and it helps to reduce build up on teeth as well as fighting stinky, bad breath. Oil pulling also reduces & soothes any dryness in your mouth and it can soothe chapped lips too.
Nothing but natural ingredients.
Virgin Coconut Oil, Peppermint Oil. (Free from gluten, wheat & dairy)
How to use?
Take an individual sachet and cut or tear the sachet along the dotted line, squeezing the oil into your mouth. Swirl the oil around your mouth for 5-15 minutes and spit out, rinsing your mouth.
Thanks to the peppermint oil, the contents in the little sachets smell minty fresh, it is a very refreshing, mild and pleasant scent and it is a bit similar to how toothpaste / chewing gum smells. Before tearing open the sachets, the oil may not be completely melted at first and it may still be in its solid form in some areas but it melts easily. It is a clear and transparent in appearance and it has a runny, oily consitency once it has melted. I have oil pulled before using just virgin coconut oil from a tub and I never added peppermint oil. Personally, I would actually prefer these if they didn’t have peppermint oil but it does and it has helped to freshen my stinky breath so I really can’t complain. I love how it tastes when I first put it in my mouth and I dont mind the peppermint whilst pulling but once my twenty minutes is up I have to rinse my mouth straight away with water as I’m not a fan of the peppermint aftertaste.
After the first go my teeth looked so much cleaner and by the 7th day I was suprised at how whiter my teeth appeared, they looked glossy, clean and polished and my gums looked a healthier pink colour and my stinky breath improved, according to the boyfriend!
At £19.99 the kit is expensive and you could probably buy yourself a tub of virgin coconut oil which will last longer than 14 days and much cheaper to buy but I have found the sachets have come in handy for me, especially when travelling or whenever I’m on the go. I’m now on my last sachet right now but I have vowed to take up oil pulling daily as my oral health is so much better now than it was two weeks ago and I really do recommend it.
