Easy Oil Pulling Blend with Essential Oils


Make it a Habit in 2014

Oil pulling is becoming a mainstream practice around here. Quickly gaining popularity for it's ability to reduce nasty bacteria that causes plaque build-up, gum disease, tooth decay and gum sensitivity...Oil Pulling is here to stay. And, your teeth will get whiter in the process! I've been oil pulling for a couple years, I'd like to share a time-saving step that can help you make it a habit in 2014 too.

By the way, if all of this is new to you, here's a more in-depth blog post on the subject of oil pulling {click here}. Be sure to come back and learn now to make a quick and easy blend for your new healthy habit, oil pulling!


I use only 3 ingredients: organic coconut oil and 2 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oils: Melaleuca and a Thieves type protective blend. Melaleuca is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-septic, expectorant, immune stimulant and decongestant. A Thieves type blend has strong anti-viral properties, just what you want swishing around in your mouth every day. The blend contains Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Clove Bud, Eucalyptus (radiata), Rosemary, and Lavender essential oils. Coconut oil contains Lauric Acid, a healthy fat that's proven to be anti-microbial.

To save time oil pulling, make a 2 week supply of an Oil Pulling Blend rather than gathering all of the ingredients every time you swish. It's easy, just use a whisk and a 1/2-pint mason jar:



  • 1 cup softened coconut oil
  • 16 drops Melaleuca
  • 16 drops Thieves type blend

Whisk softened coconut oil and essential oils together until well blended and smooth. Add to a 1/2 pint mason jar or container of your choice preferably glass as essential oils can leach petrochemicals from plastic. Once a day if possible, put approximately one tablespoon of the Oil Pulling Blend in your mouth and swish slowly for 20 minutes. Keep busy, it's great to do this while showering or vacuuming etc. Do not swallow! The oil will be full of bacteria and other nasty stuff, you'll want to spit it in the garbage at the end of your 20 minutes. Brush your teeth and feel the difference! Your teeth will feel smooth and clean every time.
