Beat Sore Throats. How Virgin Coconut Oil may drive sore throats away!

Coconut Oil | Virgin Coconut OilThe internet is full of claims about the health benefits of Virgin Coconut Oil. We won’t go over them here. But we will say this. Our family has successfully used Virgin Coconut Oil to drive away sore throats with ease. That is our personal experience, and we’d like to invite you to consider the options for yourself.

  • Place Virgin Coconut Oil on your throat and leave it here
  • Use it for cooking (it is saturated fat, just like butter)
  • Use it for Oil Pulling (Oil Swishing)
  • Oil Pulling with a drop of your Essential Oil (one you can use in your mouth)

How do you do Oil Pulling?

We have published a post on the topic of Oil Pulling before. It is also mentioned in booklets we’ve published.

Virgin Coconut Oil – Oil Pulling

The process of placing Virgin Coconut Oil in your mouth. It will melt there.  Hold it there for a time, at the front of your mouth. Then start to swish it around in your mouth, then hold it for a while, etc.
Some people can last but a few moments. Others make it last a while.
The goal is continuous swishing in one or more sessions for up to 15-20 minutes. It does not have to be one time in that period only.
You spit it out, without swallowing it.
That is the process.

What can you expect to feel in your mouth?

Eventually, you can expect phlegm to break loose from the back of your throat, and this is to be welcomed. Brave souls keep swishing… others spit out and start over.

Keep up the process of doing oil pulling several times a day, or twice a day, whatever suits. But it has worked in providing symptomatic relief to sore throats for us, and it may do so for you.

Where can you buy Virgin Coconut Oil from in New Zealand?
