Dr Tung's Oil Pulling Concentrate 50mL
An ancient Ayurvedic herbal formula for oil pulling, Dr Tung's Oil Pulling Concentrate contains 24 different herbs in organic sesame oil. Perfect for supporting natural detoxification processes, healthy teeth and gums and normalising natural flora or bacteria in the mouth.
Dr Tung's has really out done themselves with this formula - packed full of medicinal herbal extracts in a base of organic sesame oil, this oil pulling concentrate takes your personal hygiene practices to a whole new level.
For those who are unfamiliar with the practice of oil pulling we suggest reading our article Oil Pulling With Organic Black Sesame Oil or reading Bruce Fife's Oil Pulling Therapy book for a modern interpretation of this ancient Ayurvedic therapy.
A little different to using simple organic black sesame oil for oil pulling, Dr Tung's Oil Pulling Concentrate contains wild harvested Ayurvedic herbs to help to enhance natural detoxification or the drawing therapy of oil pulling.
We suggest using this oil pulling concentrate in conjunction with Dr Tung's other great oral hygiene products including their Smart Floss, Tongue Cleaner and nifty little Toothbrush Sanitizer.
You can use Dr Tung's Oil Pulling Concentrate either neat or diluted 1:3 with a carrier oil, we suggest using traditional organic black sesame oil, however you can also use organic coconut oil. Use one tablespoon of the mixture in your mouth and swish for approximately 5-20 minutes (this can take a little practice). Once you are finished with swishing the oil in your mouth, you should spit out the oil and then rinse your mouth with warm water or saline water.

So, why oil pulling? This traditional Ayurvedic therapy assists in detoxification. The oils used in oil pulling have a lipophilic or a drawing quality and 'pull' toxins through the membranes in the mouth and sinuses into the oil. Obviously a long term process, but with Ayurvedic personal hygiene practices or Dinacarya, oil pulling is performed daily, along with flossing and tooth brushing.

As a quality herbal product, I would highly recommend this oil pulling concentrate and would give it 5 stars. However, the tiny size of the bottle and price means that I only use it once a week and use Leonie's recommended organic black sesame oil on other days. So, only four stars...but a great product.
