Ayurvedic Oral Care

Ayurveda is an ancient and comprehensive system of healing that makes extensive use of herbs and oils in its vast pharmacopeia. The most famous oral hygiene practice that originated in Ayurvedic medicine is oil pulling or swishing. Millions of Westerners have taken up oil pulling with a passion, but in addition to drawing toxins from the mouth through swishing, not gargling, oil, Ayurveda also has a method of tongue cleaning using a scraper. This can be performed before the oil pulling, and can be followed up with brushing the teeth and rinsing with a mouthwash or periodontal rinse. You will find a wide selection of Ayurvedic oral health products on this site. Besides the Ayurvedic specialty products, there are, of course, many other oral health products on this site.
