Welcome to CHI! We are so happy you're visiting our brand spanking new site and we hope you seriously enjoy our products.
So who are we? We LOVE coconuts, we pretty much live and breathe them. You may have heard of our brand CHI before, in which we sell cold pressed, raw, organic virgin coconut oil, coconut milks and waters! So you can say we're pretty much experts in the stuff. We like to keep our lovely consumers happy and decided it was time to expand our fantastic range to accommodate those who also want to keep their pearly whites healthy and happy as well as their insides.
So what exactly is oil pulling and why should you try it?
Oil pulling also known as "kavala" or "gundusha," is an ancient Ayurvedic (Indian roots) dental technique that involves swishing a tablespoon of oil in your mouth on an empty stomach for around 20 minutes. This aims to draws out toxins in your body, primarily to improve oral health but also to improve your overall health too.
So why Coconut Oil? This wondrous oil has strong antibacterial properties, along with lots of easily digestible, fat-soluble vitamins: A,D,E and K. Vitamin A is good for the immune system, Vitamin E has strong antioxidant properties for the skin and can provide some protection against UV rays, Vitamin D is good for strong bones and teeth, and Vitamin K is good for blood-clotting.
So what are you waiting for?! Grab a sachet, either warm in your hands to soften or put straight into your mouth. Start swishing! We suggest you aim to swish for around 20 minutes, however if this is too long for you as the motion is slightly strange to begin with, then build up to this and you can always start with 10-15 minutes.
(Note: Be gentle here -- no need to be as aggressive as you are with mouthwash, as you will be doing it for 20 minutes and don’t want to get a stiff jaw! The oil will almost double in size as it draws in saliva as well as the toxins. Be sure not to swallow as you will be taking these toxins into your body -- the complete opposite of what you are trying to do.) Lastly, empty the coconut oil down your sink and rinse your mouth with warm water and brush teeth gently.
We suggest you doing this every day for the full 2 week course to see the best benefits!
Don't forget to send us your before and after shots of your Chi White oil pulling to feature on our social media :)
Lots of love and coconuts,
