So many beauty and wellness secrets from the past have made their way into today’s world. Like acupuncture and the Paleo diet, another “new” old practice is back – oil pulling, a detox mouth freshener.

Even Shailene Woodley mentioned how important it is to give your mouth some oily love: “I love a natural way to heal. You can do something called ‘oil pulling’ where you swish coconut or sesame oil in your mouth when you wake up and spit it out. It’s amazing!” Although it may seem like the new popular thing to do for your health, oil pulling is actually an ancient Ayurvedic medicinal practice that has been used by many people for thousands of years.

The practice of oil pulling is typically done by using an oil to swish around the mouth and pull through the teeth and gums for a short time each day and then spit out.

This technique is used as a holistic preventative measure and remedy for a variety of health issues, but this simple daily action is most commonly touted as a way to remove bacteria from the mouth and promote strong oral health. Masigi has reinvented the way this usually messy practice is done by packaging their organic oils in individual packets, making it simple, clean and accessible to use with all the amazing health benefits of oil pulling still in full effect.
