Posted on October 23 2020

We are so excited to announce the release of a new Pulling Oil Mouthwash flavor, Fennel Anise! It has a warm, sweet flavor, similar to black licorice. The ingredients were selected for all of their antiseptic and healing benefits to help with toothaches from cavities, post dentist procedures, and sores. Oil Pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic practice for eliminating bad breath, promoting healthy oral care of teeth and gums, and helping prevent long term diseases. 

How to Oil Pull with The Dirt Pulling Oil

Our Pulling Oil can be used in two ways; as a 2-3 minute mouthwash, or a 15-20 minute oil pulling session. Use a capful (or tablespoon) amount of oil to swish through your mouth, teeth and gums for the suggested amount of time to pull out impurities that affect oral health. The oils will dislodge junk from your teeth and gums so there is no need to brush your teeth before starting. Spit the oil into the trash or a plastic bag because it is not good for your drains. Rinse with water or salt water and look at your fresh smile in the mirror! 

Swallowing large amount is not recommended.
Shake well before use.

Ingredients:  MCT Coconut Oil (Cocos Nucifera), Sesame Oil (Sesamum Indicum), Sea Buckthorn (Hippophae Rhamnoides), Essential Oils of: Peppermint (Mentha Piperita), Clove (Syzyglum Aromaticum), Tea Tree (Leptospermum Petersonii), Sweet Fennel (Foeniculum Vulgare) Star Anise (Illidium verum),Turmeric (Curcuma Longa), Stevia Extract (Stevia Rebaudiana), Natural Menthol and Rosemary Extract (Rosmarinus Officinalis)

MCT Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil is an amazing moisturizer even for your gums! It is antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and helps prevent bacteria development that causes Strep, Candida, and Staph. Its antiseptic properties make it the perfect remedy for small cuts and mouth sores. 

Sesame Oil

Sesame Oil helps eliminate oral malodor and the microbes that cause it just as much as other methods. Sesame Oil is proven to have anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and anti-plaque effects when used as a pulling oil. Tyrosine in sesame oil is linked to serotonin which helps boost mood levels and decrease anxiety. 

Sea Buckthorn

Sea Buckthorn is an anti-inflammatory that soothes and reduces redness in the mouth. It is known for its depth of vitamin, antioxidant, and flavonoid content which is good for your immune system to fight infection and cell regeneration.

Essential Oils of Peppermint, Clove, and Tea Tree

We used these essential oils for their taste and elimination of bad breath (especially Peppermint). They also provide relief for tooth and gum pain, or pain from cuts and ulcers. Clove contains the active ingredient benzocaine, the same thing dentists use to numb areas of the mouth before procedures.  

Star Anise

Star anise is a good remedy for bad breath because of the natural licorice flavor. It is helpful in disinfecting your mouth because of its antiseptic properties, which is great for our mouths that have a vast amount of bacteria (good and bad). Since it helps keep bacteria levels under control it can help fight free radicals that cause influenza. Star Anise can also help relieve toothaches so this flavor should be your go to for any tooth pain.

Sweet Fennel

Another oil with remarkable antiseptic properties for healing wounds. Fennel is also considered a stimulant for natural body processes like healing, digestion, brain function, and nervous system functions. The aroma of oil helps boost mental health by relieving stress and anxiety. 

Natural Menthol and Rosemary Extract

These two oils are natural preservatives which help prevent bacteria growth and extend the shelf-life of Pulling Oil.
