Review: Keeko Oil

Oil pulling is an ancient practice going back about 3,000 years. Our mouths harbour bacteria, fungi, and viruses. These germs cause oral health problems such as gum disease and tooth decay. Oil pulling involves swishing coconut oil in your mouth for about 15 minutes, spit it out and then brush as usual.

There are many benefits to oil pulling such as white teeth, banishing bad breath, preventing cavities, improved immunity and strengthened gums and jaw. Why this method works is because coconut oil is antimicrobial and is an effective fighter against the tooth decay causing bacteria.

I tried oil pulling once but I was not a fan of scooping solid coconut oil into my mouth and swishing it til it melted. Sensitive gag reflexes meant I was constantly gagging for the whole 15 minutes!

Keeko Oil is an Australian brand which has formulated blend of three delicious cold pressed coconut and essential organic oils to make oil pulling easy and mainstream.

I trialled the Citrus Burst flavour and I am a convert. Keeko Oil makes the oil pulling method so enjoyable and easy. Each sachet is 1 tablespoon – the recommended amount for oil pulling; and the flavours mean no more gagging. Citrus Burst is a delicious mix of lemon, lime and pink grapefruit. The sachets are portable too making them ideal for travel. The coconut oil does solidify in cold weather but you can rub the satchet between your hands to warm it up, or like me, run it under warm water.

After trying the method over the last two weeks, I can definitely say my teeth appear brighter and after each swishing session, my teeth are feeling cleaner and smoother. I am an avid coffee and tea drinker so my teeth aren’t as white as I would like them. However, oil pulling has made them whiter! I wish I had thought to take before and after pictures but I’ve found some reviews on the interwebs – one and two. I’ve always avoided chemical teeth whitening as I was scared it would wear down the teeth enamel in result in (even more) sensitivity. But this. THIS. is au naturel!

Sure, you can just oil pull with plain ol’ coconut oil, but if you’re anything like me and can’t stand the smell and/or taste of coconut oil, give these a try. Keeko Oil has mad the process much more enjoyable for me and I will keep on going with this as the results have been surprising.

You can purchase Keeko Oil from their website – here –  and come in three different flavours, Morning Mint, Citrus Burst, and Sweet Sensation. A two week pack costs $38.95.
