Oil Pulling; DIY

The in’s & out’s of OIL PULLING!
I really have grown to love this process! It has benefited my oral health tremendously.
Ingredients;

•1-2 tbs of coconut oil (food grade)

•1-2 drops of your favourite cleansing essential oil (my fav is the OnGuard, protective blend from doterra)
—————————————————
How to;
•Simply scoop your coconut oil, and add your essential oil to it.

•Swish it in your mouth for about 20 mins.
Note – this can be tiring for some in the beginning. That’s okay. Just swish as long as you can and your cheek strength will improve over time.
•Spit it out in the garbage (especially if you have a septic system).

•Rinse your mouth with warm water.

•Brush and floss as per your normal routine.
—————————————————
If you do not like the taste of coconut oil you can switch it out for MCT oil. This will have the same benefits as the coconut oil however it is a tad more expensive. Please note that MCT oil is always in a liquid state.

•Improves bad breath

Why we don’t buy doTERRA on Amazon!

My aspiration is to educate the masses.

Why we don’t purchase doTERA through Amazon;

1. You get what you pay for – the essential oil industry is growing at a fast rate. Many people are in it for the money and not for the true therapeutic benifits of the oil. The caps and seals can be purchased for next to nothing and it is way too simple to dilute or even replace the oils that are in the bottles. Amazon has no control over this and it is scary to think of what’s out there and what is being portrayed as an essential oil.

2. As of March 31, 2016 there are no authorized doTERRA sellers on Amazon.

3. Community support – there is a lot to learn when it comes to essential oils. It’s a journey and is not something that will happen overnight. We have an amazing community set it place to help, guide and support you in any way imaginable! If you purchase from Amazon you do not receive any of that.

Personally for me, because I use the essential oils to support my family and myself I want to make sure that I get guaranteed pure oils and the education to maximize. Plus I get 25% off retail, FREE oils every month AND 25% back on each purchase I make. That is 50% off just because I am a wholesale member.

Copaiba

I was previously very impressed with Charlottes Web CBD Oil and would often recommend it to clients. But the pice tag was SHOCKING and still ran the risk of possible THC interactions 😔 If you don’t know about medical marijuana or hemp, aka CBD, then you need to know that there are two components that have an affect on our body systems – CBD and THC.

CBD interacts with our CB2 receptors and gives us incredible therapeutic benefits such as:

-tension relief

-decreased inflammation

-reduced anxiety

-nervous system support

-lowered insulin levels

-cardiovascular health

-and more!

*THC is the controversial component that interacts with our CB1 receptors which is responsible for causing the “high” associated with marijuana.

*What you may not know is that there’s a THIRD type of cannabinoid–BCP (aka Copaiba). BCP is the long lost relative we always hoped we’d find!

It was only just discovered as a cannabinoid in 2008. And while it’s different from CBD, it directly affects the same CB2 receptors and is a much more concentrated form.

For example:

⠀⠀

💧CBD derived from hemp has a 2-4% concentration.

⠀⠀

💧CBD derived from cannabis/marijuana has a 5-35% concentration.

⠀⠀

💧dōTERRA’s BCP? 60%! Wow!

⠀⠀

dōTERRA is the first company ever to formulate their Copaiba using 4 different species making it the highest concentrated cannabinoid available. Yet because it is not a cannabis derivative it will never show up on a drug test or alter your cognitive state out of a natural comfort range.

Lastly dōTERRA Copiba is 1/3 of the price of a good quality hemp CBD! I’d say that in my opinion. I feel Copaiba is the superior option. How about you?!?
