Some great natural tips for improving your natural dental care health
There are many ways you can make your natural dental care routine more eco, environmentally friendly, sustainable, natural and vegan check out our tips here.
Natural oil pulling mouthwash
Natural oil pulling mouthwash, also known as “kavala” or “gundusha” is an ancient technique, rooted in Ayurvedic dental care that involves swirling oils around your mouth, on an empty stomach for at least 20 minutes. Incorporating natural oil pulling mouthwash into your eco, natural dental care routine draws out toxins from your body and helps to improve oral health and your health in general. You can use oils such as olive oil or coconut oil for this, or you can try out an eco-friendly, natural oil pulling mouthwash from Georganics.
