World’s first and largest customised Ayurveda Beauty tech brand Vedix announces its entry into oral hygiene with the launch of oil pulling oils. The range which consists of 3 SKUs is customised for Vedix customers depending on age and dosha profile. Kapha is dominant in the young age, Pitta in the middle and Vata is dominant in old age. Teeth health thus requires different dosha balancing herbs for the maintenance of good health.
Oil pulling has been practised in India for ages. Charak Samhita mentions “brushing twice daily with a twig is as important as mouth rinsing.” Different formulations, oils, herbs, and decoctions have been enlisted in Ayurvedic texts for achieving your ultimate oral care health goals. Current research on oil pulling confirms the therapeutic effect of this practice.
Oil pulling is a part of Ayurvedic Dinacharya - a daily routine. Ayurveda recommends doing Gandusha / Kavala (oil pulling) daily before or after brushing. Oil pulling dissolves plaque more effectively than water-based mouthwash.
Jatin Gujrati, Business Head, Vedix, says, “Vedix is taking bold steps by launching this new category which is currently dominated by legacy brands. Our offering comes with a customised layer as Ayurveda teaches us. We have perfected blends of herbal extracts, essential oils and cold-pressed base oils to deliver maximum efficacy in maintaining optimum oral health. We are on a mission to bring 5,000 years old Ayurveda benefits to the masses.”
Oils nurture a healthy biome. On regular use, it strikes a healthy balance of good vs. bad bacteria in the mouth. It detoxifies the saliva and maintains a healthy oral pH. Gum health improves, as reduced plaque results in lesser tartar (solidified plaque). Increased oral pH protects the enamel and reduces sensitivity. A healthier oral cavity also means lesser throat and nasal infections.
These oils incorporate bark extracts to yield the benefit of using herbal twigs. Sesame oil has teeth strengthening effect, according to Ayurveda. The Vedix oil pulling oils have a combination of sesame and coconut oil, which makes them palatable and very effective. The range of oil pulling oils are available on leading marketplaces Amazon, Flipkart, Purplle. Priced at Rs 799 for a 30-day regimen
A mix of essential oils like peppermint, eucalyptus, thyme, tulsi, clove, cinnamon etc. are chosen, each for its specific oral benefit. For example, Fennel essential oil increases salivary pH, thus preventing cavities. A boost of menthol ensures you finish oil pulling feeling fresh and invigorated. The oils are sufficient to last an entire month of daily use. Here’s a quick guide to integrated Gandusha for a customised oral detox

It is a simple daily regimen, which when done routinely, enhances the senses, brings about a feeling of freshness and maintains clarity in the voice.” Gandusha can help in dealing with migraines, inflammation of the throat along with impure skin, fatigue and dullness.
