What is oil pulling, exactly?
Oil pulling is an ancient practice originating from Indian Ayurvedic medicine, used to detoxify the mouth and body. This ancient practice is fast gaining popularity all over the world because not only does it cleanse your mouth and increase your overall health, it also naturally whitens your teeth and gives you a killer smile!
Oil pulling traditionally involved using sesame oil to treat all ailments of the mouth. It was believed that many diseases found in the body originated in the mouth.
Oil Pulling works using the ‘like dissolves like’ principle with the oil dissolving the yellowing biofilm created on teeth by bacteria in the mouth commonly known as plaque. These bacteria are oil soluble making oil pulling the most effective way to cleanse without chemicals. Coconut oil has fast become the most popular oil used in oil pulling because of its many added health benefits, and is a lot more pleasant in flavour.
Made in Australia with the finest Organic Oils, keeko oil is the perfect combination of cold pressed Coconut Oil, Lemon Oil for whiter teeth, Chamomile Oil for soothing irritations & healing mouth tissues, and Myrrh Oil for inflammation and gum health.
To make things super easy-peasy Keeko Oil comes in fab, perfectly portioned and ready to use sachets. This eliminated the common drawback many people encounter using regular coconut oil & feeling queasy taking solid oil in the mouth.
keeko oil sachets are 10ml in size and easy to heat in your hands or under warm water if required. Then it is simply a case of rip, squeeze into your mouth, swish around for 5-15 minutes, spit out into the bin, and brush. Boom! Self-five for adding another spoonful of sexy into your morning routine.
keeko oil also tastes amazing coming in a choice of three popular flavour combinations: Morning Mint - (Spearmint + Peppermint), Citrus Burst (Lemon Lime + Pink Grapefruit) and Sweet Sensation (Vanilla Cinnamon) and the beauty, wellness and holistic benefits are endless.
How can I use keeko?
Traditional oil pulling methods state that you should spend 20 minutes each day oil pulling; but who has time to swish for 20 minutes every single day?!
keeko's formulated blend makes oil pulling more effective then with regular coconut oil. Even just 5 minutes twice a week can give you awesome health benefits.
There are several ways you can use your keeko oil pulling sachets:
2-week whitening treatment: Use one sachet every day for 14 days. We recommend doing it in the shower or when you are getting ready for work for between 5 to 15 minutes. For a whitening treatment the longer you swish, the better the results.
2-month oral and body detox: This is great for anyone who wants to take their dental hygiene to new extremes of awesomeness. Use 1 sachet 2 times per week for improved oral health & a full body detox. 5 minutes will give you amazing health benefits, and is best to do when you're in the shower or getting ready for work. Remember the longer you swish, the more effective the treatment!
Health and skin treatment: Feeling run down, skin breakouts or a nasty flu coming on? Use 1 sachet every day for 7 days or until you start to feel better to absorb internal toxins and reduce the bacterial load on your body. Do it for a minimum 5 minutes, best done when you're in the shower or getting ready for work.
