Detoxing has become a popular keyword as of late, whether used in Gwyneth Paltrow’s popular goop series of products, or in juice cleanses. Whether it be a food cleanse or beauty detox, the art of detoxing is simply about removing toxic ingredients such as parabens, phthalates and fragrance from your life.

Techniques such as deep exfoliation and cleansing are some of the more common, modern ways to rid yourself of toxins. However, we are here to talk about a less common, ancient ritual that has recently become a huge beauty trend.

Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic oral care technique that involves swishing a tablespoon of oil (mostly coconut) in your mouth on an empty stomach for around 20 minutes. This action is supposed to draw out toxins in your body, whiten teeth, strengthen the jaw and even clear out sinuses.

Masigi has made the art of coconut pulling easy with their perfectly portioned, “grab and go” packages. These tidy, more precise packets are single-serve tubers that have a perfect portion of coconut oil with added organic essential oil to enhance the flavor. Simply warm the package between your palms to make it liquid, place in your mouth and start “pulling.” Perfect for keeping in your everyday bag or weekend getaways, there is no mess and no spoon needed.

Oil pulling and the detoxing trend, in general, has been all over the news and websites as of late with celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Shailene Woodley and the Olsen twins all having been known to embrace and endorse the benefits of the daily “cleanse.” Now, there’s an easy way for you to test it out for yourself.
