We all know that coconut have many health benefits such as skin care, hair care, weight loss, treating yeast infections, strengthen immune system, fights infections and diseases.

But did you know that the coconut's oil can also cure for bad breath, improves the health of gums and also whitens teeth? The procedure of this called Oil Pulling.

The Oil Pulling is swishing of 1-2 teaspoon of Coconut oil for about 20 minutes, spit it out and rinse with lukewarm water. It is great replacement for mouthwash specially to those who have sensitive teeth.

Over the counter mouthwash kills bad bacteria and also wipes the GOOD bacteria which is NOT good for our dental health. Good Bacteria has big roles to our health, this can help with digestion because it will start breaking food down as soon as we start eating.

In case that coconut oil is not available in your house, Vegetable oil like sesame and olive oil can also be use for this treatment. The procedure is the same to the coconut oil pulling technique.
