“I consider commercial mouthwash to be one of the top dental mistakes made by both dentists and their patients.” — Dr. Mark Burhenne, DDS
Redefining Mouthwash. As we see it, traditional mouthwashes are at best a waste of money. Oil pulling on the other hand, especially one that utilizes the right plant based oils in their pure, minimally processed form, offers a mouthwash that actually does a whole lot of good.
Supports a healthy mouth, and a healthy mouth is a healthy body. Studies show that many chronic and systemic diseases start in the mouth. Microscopic tears in the mouth can allow bacteria and harmful pathogens into the bloodstream, taking a toll on the immune system. Maintaining a balanced microbiome, eliminating bad bacteria and opportunistic organisms while enhancing the natural cleansing and rebuilding processes of the mouth is one of the most effective, yet inexpensive, steps you can take to support your overall health.
Practice oil pulling first thing in the morning. When active and functioning properly, saliva is key to maintaining healthy bacteria levels, controlling the growth of pathogenic organisms, diluting acids produced by bacteria and repairing tooth enamel. While sleeping, the production and circulation of saliva slow down - as do the benefits. We wake up to a dry mouth full of unpleasant stuff. Practicing oil pulling first thing in the morning moisturizes the mouth while neutralizing and expelling all those unwanted compounds and organisms.
We use the highest quality, unrefined, organic sesame seed and black cumin seed oil. These oils have a long history of healing. And, unlike coconut oil, they don’t solidify at cooler temps.
Our Oil Pulling Mouthwash leverages a blend of powerful, natural ingredients in their pure, raw form to deliver the maximum benefits.
Each of the 5 essential oils in our balanced formulation was selected for its proven ability to enhance oral health. We chose to use brown glass due its inert qualities (no leaching), ability to help protect oils from degradation from UV light and high recyclability factor.
Unlike “natural” mouthwashes and rinses containing ingredients like xylitol, stevia or glycerin, Akamai Oil Pulling Mouthwash won’t leave a cloying aftertaste or slick coating on teeth.
Powerful blend of plant based ingredients & nothing else. It’s mouthwash redefined —3000 yrs in the making.
How to use:
- Shake well.
- Using approximately 1-2 teaspoons (preferably first thing in the morning), swish in mouth with a pulling action for 5 -15 minutes.
- Spit out. Since oils can clog pipes over time, it is commonly suggested to spit out in trash. (We spit down the shower drain with no issues). Do not swallow.
- Rinse mouth thoroughly with water and brush teeth as normal.
For best results, we suggest oil pulling at least 2-3 times per week.
Sesame Seed Oil: antibacterial, antiviral, and antioxidant. Most commonly used base oil in Ayurvedic medicine.
Black Cumin Seed: antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, ancient miracle herb. Known for its effectiveness against S Mutans (causes cavities) and other bacteria.
Ceylon Cinnamon: antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, immunity-boosting. Ceylon or “true” cinnamon is superior to the more commonly sold Cassis variety, known to have high concentrations of coumarin which can be dangerous in large amounts. Studies have shown it is especially effective in destroying bacteria known to cause bad breath.
Clove Bud: antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, eases pain. Across cultures and history, clove has been especially prized for its multiple uses in oral healthcare.
Peppermint: antioxidant, antimicrobial, antiviral, eases pain. Naturally refreshing.
Anise Seed: Alleviates tooth pain.
Tea Tree: antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antifungal.
- If you start to feel like there is too much oil in your mouth, spit some of it out and keep swishing.
- After oil pulling and rinsing, clean the back of your tongue using a tongue cleaner. This will pull up any toxins that collected at the back of the tongue during the night. Instead of swallowing these toxins with your drink of liquids, bring them up and scrape them out.
- Try oil pulling as you shower - it’s a great way to work it into your morning routine.
- If you feel nauseous when oil pulling, try it on an empty stomach.
There are more bacteria living in your oral biome than people living on the earth.
