DIY Activated Charcoal & Coconut Oil Pulling Tablets

April 20, 2018

Oil pulling is a part of our daily oral health practice. Oil pulling with coconut oil has many health benefits. Learn about the benefits in our blog post: The What, How and Whys of Oil Pulling. This DIY adds in a few more ingredients to up the benefits! Enjoy a cleaner and whiter mouth!

 

Ingredients


2 tsp Sparkoal Beauty Activated Charcoal Whitening Powder
1 cup Coconut Oil, slightly room temperature (not too hard, not too soft)
20 drops Peppermint or Spearmint Essential Oil

 

Instructions:

1. Thoroughly combine all of the ingredients in a bowl

2. Spoon the mixture into a silicone mold. Use a mold that holds 2 to 3 tsp in each cavity, any bigger and it might not fit in your mouth! If the mold is smaller than that, it won't be as effective.

3. Place the mold in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes or until it is completely hard. Pop the tablets out and place them in a jar. Store it in the refrigerator.

 

To Use, place a tablet in your mouth and chew/swish it around until it softens and continue to swish for 15 to 20 minutes. 

When you are done, spit it out in the trash. If you spit it in your sink, it could lead to a clogged drain over time. This goes for normal oil pulling as well.

You can do this everyday for the best results!
