Hi loves! Today I want to talk to you about how I care for my teeth. It's almost a year ago since I got a professional teeth whitening, and I think it's one of the best things I've done for myself in a long time. It means so much to me, to smile confidently! My teeth have always been clean and healthy, but they just weren't at all white naturally. Therefore I had it fixed. There are SO many products on the market, and therefore I was very careful and skeptical initially. I mean, it's our teeth we are talking about! That's why I had mine done in a professional clinique. My good friend Ilirida has several times told us about being careful about all the products on the market, since overuse of bleach/whitening products can cause pain, discomfort and even "see through" instead of white teeth.
Therefore I have been looking into natural remedies since I had my teeth done once, to make sure I don't overdo it, and also to make sure my results last as long as possible. My other friend Silje (I have such smart friends) tought me over the summer to put coconut oil in my mouth, swirl it around and let it sit. I've been doing it regularly since, and I didn't even know there was a word for this - "oil pulling" before discovering these products.
Coconutsplash is a product that makes oil pulling easy. You can read in more detail about the benefits of oil pulling here, but basically it's what I just explained - holding oils in your mouth. It cleanses completely naturally, and the right oils will also give you whiter teeth. This is the philosophy Coconutsplash oil pulling is based on, and the little pouches shown above contain organic coconut and peppermint oil. There are 14 pouches in one package, so the idea is to use it for 14 days to see the initial results and benefits of oil pulling. You do it before brushing your teeth. Now I'm used to the procedure, but in the beginning it can feel a bit strange to sit with the oils in your mouth, but you get used to it. The peppermint oil definitely makes it fresher and nicer, before when I used plain coconut oil it could get a little special.
The package is available at Coconutsplash HERE, and I really recommend you check this product out since I have been reaping the rewards for quite some time now. Right at the end you see an unedited photo of me, with a big smile! I smile a lot in photos now (not that I don't still through in the occasional duck face), but I certainly do it more than I did before. Tooth and mouth hygiene are very essential to me feeling fresh, and I love that Coconutsplash is an all natural way to do it. Kisses
