Want a brighter smile without the use of abrasive treatments? Try an oil mouthwash. This is a healthy, natural method to get pearly white teeth. Using oil as a mouthwash is an Ayurvedic technique that is traditionally called oil pulling.
An oil mouthwash draws toxins from the teeth, gums, throat, tongue, and mucus membranes of the mouth. This gentle technique will leave you with whiter teeth, stronger gums, and fresher breath.
Various medical studies have cited the mouth-body connection; meaning that your oral health and hygiene is directly linked to the health of your entire body.
Similar to reflexology, certain points on the tongue correspond to certain organs and body systems. Improving the health and hygiene of the tongue using an oil mouthwash can, therefore, improve your overall health.
