Does Coconut Oil Pulling taste nice?
NOIR ® Coconut oil pulling is formulated with a hint of mint oil combined with natural cold pressed virgin coconut oil for a pleasurable taste sensation.
Do you have to brush your teeth after Oil pulling?
Always brush your teeth immediately after oil pulling.
Always spit out the oil in the bathroom garbage bin, since the bacteria may be harmful if spat in the sink. We recommend rinsing out your mouth with warm water, then following up with a thorough brushing.
Should I use a separate toothbrush for brushing my teeth after oil pulling?
For Optimum results, use a separate toothbrush to brush with after Oil Pulling to minimise cross contamination of toxin residue. Thoroughly rinse your toothbrush to remove any product residue from the bristles. Store your toothbrush upright and not touching other toothbrushes to avoid cross contamination.
Why do I have to spit the Pulling Oil into the bathroom garbage bin and not the sink or toilet?
As oil residue once it solidifies can potentially affect pipes/plumbing, it is better to avoid this happening and spit into the bathroom garbage bin.
