Not Your Average Mouthwash
Black Oil Mouthwash is the world’s first and only of its kind. An exquisite union of natural oils, sweet xylitol, and activated charcoal bring your mouth to a level of clean rarely experienced with any other mouthwash. It nourishes your gums, destroys plaque, melts away smoker’s tar and resin stains, whitens teeth, soothes dry mouth, and leaves your breath at its very freshest.
Black Oil Mouthwash was originally designed as a delicious alternative to oil pulling, but we’ve found that it is a great tooth brushing booster! Just pour a little on your toothbrush (with or without toothpaste) and brush as usual. With the oil’s ability to dissolve plaque and the charcoal for whitening, you’ll end up with a MUCH more efficient brushing routine. Plus, you’ll use less mouthwash .
What is Oil Pulling?
Black Oil Mouthwash is based on the 5000-year old Ayurvedic tradition of swishing oil between your teeth in an effort to detoxify your mouth and your entire body. Today, we call it oil pulling and it’s getting a lot of lip service for its health and beauty perks. Part of the allure is in it’s simplicity to improve your oral health and detoxify your body, all with just the swishing a little oil in your mouth. Because, as it turns out, the plaque on your teeth is fat-soluble and the lipids in the oil will break down and absorb the toxic debris and bad bacteria left lingering after regular brushing and flossing.
According to ancient texts, it is said to cure over 30 systemic diseases. Oil pullers around the world have experienced clearer skin, whiter teeth, healthier gums, some weight loss, thicker hair, less plaque & cavities, increased energy, fresh breath, reduced symptoms of TMJ, better sleep, reduction in hot flashes, improved sinus health, and even cured hangovers!
The theory behind oil pulling is an interesting one. Since the mucosa tissue in your mouth is oil permeable, it is thought that the swishing stimulates an exchange through your cheeks and while your sucking and pulling the oil through your teeth, you are also pulling the toxins out of your blood through your cheeks. When you spit out the oil, you are spitting out the toxins.
If you’ve ever tried oil pulling, you may have found the experience to be less than pleasant and that’s why you’ll love Black Oil Mouthwash. It makes swishing with oil a pleasant task with it’s sweet taste and luscious texture. It’s not too thick or abrasive, but you’ll feel the texture of the activated charcoal powder flowing between your teeth as you swish. It feels like little washcloths scrubbing between your teeth in places you know your toothbrush will never reach, it’s wonderful!
Made With Love
Beneficial Oil Trio - Coconut + Sesame + Avocado
We created an exquisite union of powerful coconut, traditional sesame, and vitamin-packed avocado oil to provide you with a complete spectrum of beneficial properties. Our MCT fractionated coconut oil was processed without the use of any chemicals and will remain in liquid form, no melting necessary and safer for plumbing. Our avocado & sesame oils are both expellor-pressed and naturally refined.
Highest Quality Xylitol Makes Swishing Taste Great
Most oral care products out there contain xylitol made from corn husks and stalks, usually from China and usually GMO, but not ours! We only use the finest quality xylitol made from 100% USA grown birch tree bark. Swishing with xylitol has been shown to lower saliva’s pH, creating a more alkaline environment and helping with gingivitis, reducing decay-causing bacteria, preventing plaque from sticking to teeth, increasing saliva flow (for chronic dry mouth), and promoting a healthy environment for tooth remineralization.
Pure Activated Charcoal Ensures Fresh Breath
The activated charcoal particles bind to organic compounds (stains and odors) and act like little sponges. Our activated charcoal is from renewable hardwood trees grown in North-Eastern U.S. and we chose it because it was the least gritty of the dozens we experimented with. And don’t worry, after swishing and spitting, your teeth will not appear black.
Deliciously Flavored with Organic Essential Oils
To make our mouthwash taste even better, we use only certified organic essential oils. The essential oils also amplify the anti-microbial benefits you receive from the oil pulling process.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will it make my teeth black?
Not at all! The black color of the mouthwash is from the activated charcoal powder that is added to the oil. If you have any black residue on your teeth after spitting, it is the charcoal powder gently clinging to existing plaque or setting in crevasses. and that means you just need to spit a little more to get it all out. It will however stain anything fabric such as clothing, towels, shower curtains, and bath mats, so be careful with it.
Is it thicker than regular mouthwash?
Yes. If you’ve never swished with oil before, it may take a minute to get used to this new texture. It’s also feels thicker because of the powders (charcoal and xylitol) that are added to the oil. These powders tend to sink to the bottom of the bottle, so that’s why you need to shake it before using it. As you swish, the xylitol powder dissolves in your saliva (thinning the mouthwash), but the charcoal will not. These powders give Black Oil Mouthwash its unique texture that you can feel flowing between your teeth. These powders are non-abrasive, yet feel like you’re getting a good scrubbing between your teeth.
How long should I swish for?
This answer varies depending on what your goal is. If you are looking for the oil pulling, full body detox, then 20 minutes a day is suggested. If you just want whiter teeth, healthier gums, and less plaque, you certainly can swish for less time than that, say 5-10 minutes. It also depends on the condition of your mouth, but the longer the plaque has been sitting there, the longer it’s going to take to get it off. If you tend to accumulate plaque quickly, brushing with Black Oil Mouthwash can give you faster results.
Should I rinse after using?
It’s not really recommended to rinse after. You want to keep a little oil residue in your mouth to moisturize your gums. If you must rinse, do it sparingly.
Should I brush my teeth before or after using it?
You don’t have to, but brushing (and flossing) before using it helps the mouthwash do a more efficient job. If you find yourself in a situation where you are unable to use a toothbrush, Black Oil Mouthwash will do an excellent job of making your mouth feel clean by removing the plaque film that’s accumulated on your teeth throughout the day.
Do my gums really need to be moisturized?
Yes! All the mucosa tissues of your body crave oil and readily absorb it. Try to think of it this way, if the skin on your hand was very chapped and you submerged your hand in water, you would not feel the chapping anymore, it would feel smooth. In a similar way, your gums are coated in saliva, so you can’t notice that they are dry and chapped. The only way to tell is when your gums start to go from a healthy light pink color to a more red color. You may also have bleeding gums, which is a sure sign that they need to be moisturized. Luckily, this condition clears up very quickly when you swish with oil.
Can I spit it out in the sink?
Yes you can, but remember, it could be a little messy. Be careful of splattering and keep hot water running to facilitate it going down the drain. The oil will not solidify and clog pipes. To avoid any potential problem, you can also spit it into a trash can. After you use it a few times, you’ll find what works best for you.
Can kids use it?
Yes! We use all natural and safe ingredients and there are lots of kids using it. The only issue is spilling and splattering.
What if I swallow some?
Don’t worry, everybody swallows some while they swish and it’s perfectly safe because of the great ingredients.
We Promise to never compromise on Quality and to use only ingredients that we Feel Good about giving to our own family.
A note about our product and principles…
The ingredients in our handcrafted mouthwash tend to settle to the bottom of the bottle, therefore, it should be shaken vigorously prior to using. The reason for this is because we DO NOT EMULSIFY the sweet xylitol into the oil. We certainly could, but that would involve dissolving the xylitol in water first and then mixing that into the oil with the use of an emulsifier which changes the molecular structure of the oil, allowing the oil to bond with water. This is great for certain items like salad dressing, but the whole point of oil pulling is for the oil to absorb and bond with your oral toxins. When the molecular structure of the oil has been disturbed and pre-saturated, we have no evidence to show that it can still do its job. We feel we have a duty to preserve the integrity of the oil and keep our product as close to the ancient principles as possible, while still providing an innovative oral rinse. So please note that if the oil doesn’t taste sweet, just shake the bottle a little more.
Love Black Oil Mouthwash or get your money back. You don’t even need to return the bottle. Yes, that’s quite a return policy and we’re okay making that offer. We think our mouthwash is wonderful and we’re pretty sure you will too. So if you’re on the fence about buying a bottle, go ahead, you’ve got nothing to lose.
