1. I’ve heard of this before and I too thought it was a gimmick, but I’m really impressed with your results. I drink way too much coffee. I’m going to try this with regular organic coconut oil for a fortnight and see what happens! Thanks for the inspiration!

    • I was really happy with them, I didn’t expect much of a difference to be honest but I was definitely porved wrong! I don’t think I could get away with it without the minty taste, but plain oil should have the same results. Let me know how you get on πŸ™‚

  2. I’ve also never heard of this before, but I’m really keen to try this. I’m off to the dentist on Thursday so I’ll ask them about this.

  3. Long time no speak!
    I am a huge coconut oil convert in general, but haven’t yet tried oil pulling – even though my mum asks me regularly if I have. (She’s obsessed)
    Having read this, I’ll be starting. The before & after results are great.
    The only other thing I can add is that as well as spitting it into the bin on completion, people should be reminded not to swallow the oil after pulling due to all of the bacteria and toxins you mentioned – you don’t need that in your system πŸ˜‰

    Great post!

    • Good to see you again πŸ™‚ Where’ve you been hiding?
      The results are way better than I expected, its definitely worth trying it. Yes, that’s a great point, the last thing you would want is all that bad stuff in your tummy! Thank you πŸ™‚ x

  4. I’ve heard of this but only ever seen celebs promoting it on instagram so always had my doubts as they’ve provably already had their teeth chemically whitened. Really impressed with your results and will be giving it a go xx #anythinggoes

  5. Wow, I’d heard of this but didn’t really realise how easy it was – I assumed the ‘pulling’ part would involve actually pulling something through your teeth (like flossing?!). Anyway, I’m intrigued, I think I might have to have a go now. Thanks for the info, nd the great linky #AnythingGoes

    • Yes, I assumed something like that. I think the term “pulling” comes from the movement – they advise you to push and pull it through your teeth sort of as if your teeth are pushed closed and you want to fill your cheeks if that makes sense! Thank you πŸ™‚

  6. I do this and it’s amazing. Really makes a difference. The one thing I would mention in your guide is make sure you spit the oil out onto loo paper and bin it rather than down the sink. You can get some nasty blockages with coconut oil!

  7. I am also a recent oil pulling convert. I’ll admit, the first day was really hard because I’m like you with the texture business. I got skeeved out and spit it out after only 4 minutes and was near tears. LOL! Now, I love it, but haven’t been consistent every day…that stops today after seeing your photos. I got hooked after reading Strength and Sunshine’s post on a natural oral care company and ordered their product, which included an oil pulling packet sample. Even though I spit it out quickly, I saw the immediate draw, and began making my own with organic coconut oil and spearmint and peppermint essential oils. This is a great review, Debbie! Thank you so much for sharing it…I do love finding new brands and great products.

  8. Oh my goodness, something else huge that I’d never heard of!!!! My toddler bubble really is keeping me out of the loop!! What absolutely amazing results!! For a natural product, that is brilliant. I was talking to my husband about wanting whiter teeth, just a couple of nights ago, thinking it’d only be achieved by expensive dentist trips-I’ll definitely be giving this a go!!

  9. I’m glad I read this post. I’ve also seen many posts on social media, etc about oil pulling but even the name was enough to put me off…I think, like you, it’s a texture thing but I might just give this a go. Thanks for sharing! x #BloggerClubUK

  10. I have never heard of this before! It looks amazing, I’ve always wanted to find a way to whiten my teeth! I might look into this, but I do find the thought of it pretty horrible lol. I’m like you, I gag with funny textures, I can’t eat banana/porridge. Thanks for sharing though, I’m gonna do a little research on it πŸ™‚

    This looks amazing . I myself don’t like new textures and tastes in my mouth but to get teeth that white I would definitely try it out . Thanks for sharing !

    Wow I never believed these would work and you see so many z lister endorsed things that they love seem gimmicky!! #bloggerclubuk

  13. I actually love the taste of raw coconut oil so I might give this a try- I use it a lot for cooking or moisturising but have never tried oil pulling as it sounds like a bit of a faff and I’m kinda lazy like that πŸ™‚ Sounds worth doing though! #BloggerClubUK

  14. I must have been hiding under a rock because I’ve not actually heard of this at all! Your results are great though, really impressive. I’m a big coffee fan, so sadly that’s shown in the whiteness of my teeth, so I’m now considering it. But I am a bit of a gagger about textures and odd tastes, so a bit concerned it’s not for me! Seems worth it though if I could get past that! #bloggerclubuk

    • I would really recommend giving it a go! Once you know what to expect from the texture, it’s actually ok. If you run it under the hot tap before opening the sachet it liquefies and it isn’t icky at all then πŸ™‚ x

  15. Big fan of the oil pull! I love how clean it makes your teeth feel. I just use an Organic coconut oil but this looks super cool too! Thanks for promoting organic/ natural remedies, something I really believe in! #BloggerClubUK

  16. Wow that sounds amazing and as a fellow coffee drinker I really need that in my life. Not sure if I could do it though – might gag! #bloggerclubuk

    I had never heard of oil pulling before, it looks like a fab way to whiten your teeth. I’m so tempted to give it a go, but I’m not very good eating bananas so not sure if I’ll be able to cope with the texture. It sounds amazing though, and I’m so happy it’s working for you.

    Never ever heard of this before but the photos are very alluring! Really glad it worked for you – you look like a filmstar πŸ™‚ #BloggerClubUK

  19. I have heard of this but not this product. I havent tried it but now feel a bit more confident that you’ve road tested it first!;)

  20. I’ve tried oil pulling once before, but I was 10 weeks pregnant, and the texture actually made me vomit!
    I have heard so many amazing things about it though, that I’ve really wanted to try again, and this blog post just made me want to give it another chance! I really think the idea of adding some flavor will help me be able to stomach it a bit more. Thanks so much for sharing x #BloggerClubUK

    • Oh no, that’s not good! With the minty flavour, it does taste quite nice I don’t think I could do it with raw oil! If the texture really bothers you, run the sachet under the tap until it liquefies then it’s just like mouth wash πŸ™‚ x

  21. Hi Debbie, I have read about oil pulling before and like what I have read. I have toyed with the idea of giving it a go, but just the thought of swilling coconut oil around my mouth for any length of time has put me off.

    Using a product like Minty Coco, that has a minty flavour must make oil pulling more tolerable. Maybe one day when I’m feeling braver.


  22. How interesting! I’ve never heard of this before and always looking for natural teeth whitening solutions. Thanks for sharing X #bloggerclubuk

    I’ve been seeing oil pulling everywhere too and have been thinking it’s another gimmick. But you can’t argue with those results! ! That’s Hollywood white! The method is simple too and it sounds like it’s actually good for your teeth instead of those other gels and lazers (some of which are incredibly painful) what great results! #bloggerclubuk

  24. This sounds amazing! I had never heard of oil pulling before. There is a visible difference after a short time, I must try this out. Minty Coco sounds like a fab product. #bloggerclubuk x
