I think we all would say “yes please” to whiter teeth & better breath!
The problem is most teeth whitening kits out there are super harsh and some contain chemicals that actually eat away at your gums and strip the enamel from your teeth! I have veered away from bleaching and high acidic teeth whitening kits, because I already have issues with sensitive teeth. Well I noticed an “all natural” brand called Mintycoco that introduced me to a pretty cool way to whiten my teeth and kill bad breath called “oil pulling”! Oil pulling has been around for years! This is the method of swishing oil around in your mouth to improve your oral hygiene. Many dentists say that your mouth can be the cause of bacteria entering your blood stream and causing health concerns. ‘Oil Pulling’ could be a safe way to control bacteria levels in your mouth and guess what, when you kill bacteria in your mouth -your breath is going to smell a whole lot better too 😉 I have swished raw coconut oil around in my mouth when I had an impacted wisdom tooth, hoping to gently kill some bacteria; but back then I was probably more focused on my tooth problem then a cosmetic improvement and never really paid attention to whether it whitened my teeth or not. Well lately one of my joys is hot cocoa, possibly because I live in the frigid antarctica/Northern Michigan! Hot cocoa, coffee and tea is the perfect concoctions for yellow teeth! I wasn’t about to put myself through painful teeth whitening or pay for it either. It’s really awesome how special MINTYcoco truly is!

IS MINTYcoco worth it?
MINTYcoco arrives in the box (as seen below) with 14 ‘minty tubes’ at the cost of $29.96. A general teeth whitening kit such as crest3d for a 12 day treatment will cost you $24.99.
TIP: most people do not need to use a full tube at once. When using half the tube per “oil pulling” session, you will get double the use out of your full box of 14 tube supply. It’s kind of a no brainer, but I thought I would mention it because many people may assume they must use a whole tube in order to get the same results; but not so, I have along with many others gotten fantastic results from using half a tube per swishing. Half in the morning and half at night! Totally worth it!
Although the cost is close to the cost of a typical teeth whitening kit —the benefits of MINTYcoco far outweigh any chemical harsh treatments. not to mention it conveniently arrives at your doorstep!
MINTYcoco gives you more benefits then just whitening your teeth shades lighter, it can reduce bad breath through natural antibacterial, anti fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and anti-viral actives. So obviously in addition to cosmetic benefits like whitening teeth and eliminating bad breath, it can also reduce your risk of infection and is comparatively excessively safer then bleaching. Swishing MINTYcoco everyday is a compound effort to give you an overall healthier and more attractive smile!

WHAT DOES IT LOOK, FEEL AND TASTE LIKE?
Mintycoco is made up of coconut oil and a special formula you can find out more about here. It surprisingly feels fresh, light (not greasy or gross) and does not leave a bad after taste, actually a lightly minty one, it’s really great! I ended up using only about half a tube at a time, and the company will tell you, it’s based on the size of the mouth. I was able to use half or less morning and night!
After 8 tubes of mintycoco, my teeth are getting whiter, feeling smoother, and my mouth feels fresh and clean all the time!
