Info: Available in Three Types

Coconut Oil may not yet be a top of mind ingredient for oral hygiene for most consumers, but perhaps it should be. It contains lauric acid, which has strong antibacterial properties which can combat many of the bacteria which feed on the sugar in our mouth and produce acids which can cause plaque and gum disease and tooth decay. Each of these products in a three-part system feature Organic Virgin Coconut Oil to help remove impurities; Australian Tea Tree Oil and Spearmint oil to help freshen the mouth and defend against sugar acids; zinc citrate to help reduce buildup; Witch Hazel, which has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties to reduce any irritation, swelling, or infection in the gums, and Aloe Vera, for nourishing and soothing the gums and other oral tissues.

Product Notes:

The Toothpaste also includes natural Baking Soda and Sea Salt to gently but effectively clean the teeth, plus other natural oils and extracts to provide complete oral care. The Mouthwash adds another type of refreshing mint oil, plus pepper, which has both analgesic and antibacterial effects. And the Dual-Phase Pulling Rinse, which might be thought of as an oral 'conditioner' that you can swirl around just after you have lunch at work, for example, adds Sesame and Sunflower Oils and other ingredients to help remove impurities, reduce build up, freshen your breath, and brighten your smile effective in as little as 3 minutes.

Suggested Usage:

Coconut Oil Toothpaste: For adults and supervised children 2 + years of age. Place a pea size amount on your toothbrush. Softly brush teeth for one minute. Spit out toothpaste and then rinse with water. For best results, use twice daily.

Coconut Oil Mouthwash: Adult and children 6 years of age and older: use half an ounce of mouthwash and rinse, to leave your mouth fresh and clean.

Coconut Oil Dual Phase Pulling Rinse: For adult use only. Shake well for 10-15 seconds. Pour a capfull into mouth and gently wash and pull between teeth and gums. Start with 3 minutes and work up to 20 minutes for best results. Spit the rinse into the garbage pail and not the sink, as the oils may solidify and block drainage in cooler temperatures. Please note, this pulling rinse is not intended as a replacement for regular brushing and flossing, but as a complement to them.


Keep out of reach of children under 6 years of age. DO NOT INGEST. If you accidentally swallow product, contact a healthcare provider immediately.
