The Dirt Pulling Oil Mouthwash is not a typical mouthwash that contains numerous chemicals such as Triclosan, Aspartame and alcohol which do not belong in our bathrooms! The all-natural ingredients of sesame and coconut will coax a host of terrible toxins from your teeth and gums which are linked to numerous health concerns. A healthy mind and body begins with a healthy mouth. Oil pulling is an ancient technique from Ayurvedic medicine which involves swishing oil in your mouth for up to 20 minutes in order to prevent a daunting health problem. Aside from the benefits for your mouth there are quite a few unexpected health benefits from oil pulling including migraine and nausea relief, heart health, and immunity. 

The Dirt

Combined with a tooth friendly diet rich in calcium, magnesium, K2, D and lipids, your body will have all it needs to thrive with a big bright smile!  

Non Oral Care Related Health Benefits 

Yes, I know, back to the boring talk of health benefits, but trust me, it is well worth it! So, what are the benefits of oil pulling? The truth is, there are too many to cover in just one blog, so we are going to highlight some you may not even realize! Oil Pulling can help combat those daunting migraines and bouts of nausea. Since ancient times this practice has been done to improve overall immune system health. Here’s Why:


Peppermint oil is one of the most commonly used essential oils to treat those day long headaches and migraine attacks that put you in bed and under the covers.. It contains menthol, which aids in reducing muscle tension that contributes to the pain. It is suspected that peppermint oil helps control blood flow in the body and can open up the sinuses for better oxygen flow.

Aside from mint essential oils, The Rose Clove Mint Mouthwash from The Dirt includes Rose Oil which has significant analgesic effects to alleviate those who struggle with chronic cases of migraines. It also includes Clove Oil which is an active ingredient that possesses pharmacological properties that curb tension headaches, cluster headaches and even a migraine headache. 

By incorporating the Pulling Oil Mouthwash from The Dirt, into your weekly routine, you can drastically increase your migraine control.


The Dirt Pulling Oil Mouthwashes contain some of the best essential oils that curbs nausea. Whether you experience ongoing nausea from IBS or Morning Sickness from pregnancy, daily activities can be really hard if you are feeling unwell. If you suffer from chronic nausea, using this product as a daily mouthwash or several times a week for oil pulling sessions can help you  feel a lot better in the morning. Our Super Mint Pulling Oil Mouthwash includes a blend of peppermint oils and our Fennel Anise Pulling Oil Mouthwash contains Fennel essential oil. Both of these oils are historically known to help subside nausea. 

Heart Health

Removing bacteria, toxins and  built  from your mouth and especially built up plaque and gunk prevent

Immune System 

Oils like MCT oil are dense with vitamin A and E and various fatty acids, which are necessary in order to strengthen your immune system. This very reason is why oil pulling has remained a constant practice in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of centuries. As you eliminate bacteria and toxins through oil pulling, those millions of microbes living in your mouth waiting to enter the rest of your body will soon end up in the sink! The Oil Pulling Mouthwash from The Dirt includes magnesium which plays a huge part in boosting your immune system process. Magnesium is essential in the functionality of our bodies to perform in a healthy and effective manner.
