Surprising Beauty Uses For Coconut Oil
Besides cooking oil, hair and skin moisturizer…coconut oil is a great standby that serves as a creamy, nutritious and somewhat surprising tooth whitener….and… believe it or not…is great in coffee!
As an Ayurvedic morning essential….Coconut oil has been used for centuries to ease gingivitis, cavities, whiten teeth , pull toxins from the mouth and kill bacteria that can be harmful!
Here is a great morning routine with coconut oil:
- Scrape tongue with metal scraper about 7 times
- brush teeth gently
- Rinse mouth for 3-10 min with coconut oil. You can use the raw oil which will melt once put in mouth, or purchase a liquefied oil flavored with cinnamon or peppermint as well as other beneficial herbs added. Spit out into garbage can, as this oil can clog drains.
- If you love your morning cup- a -Joe…add a tablespoon or so to a large mug of coffee, pour in blender and blend for 30 seconds….you will have a creamy whipped coffee, dairy free, gluten free and vegan! Add a sprinkle of cinnamon….and you are on your way!
After about 1 month of use, notice healthier teeth and gums, fewer cavities, and whiter teeth! Not to mention pulling toxins from the mouth that build up overnight!
