Swishing with oil is an ancient Ayurvedic practice used throughout ancient India and Egypt. This deep dental clean involves swishing botanical oil in the mouth for 10 minutes. The oil draws impurities to itself, detoxifying the mouth and restoring balance to the entire oral environment. When the oil is released, toxins, and unwanted bacteria go with it!
Oil swishing is featured in almost a dozen scientific studies. It has been shown to eradicate pathogens, freshen breath, thwart gingivitis and tooth decay, and stop bleeding and receding gums.
Our Happy Gum Drops + Oil Swishing Serum is a potent combination of time-treasured and scientifically measured botanical-biotics to bolster the balance of your mouth’s microbiome, including stimulating cinnamon, caring clove bud, antiseptic oregano, purifying peppermint, restorative rose otto, soothing seabuckthorn, toning thyme linalool, therapeutic tea tree, and Co Q10 all super-saturated in nutraceutical coconut MCT oil.
Swishing with CoQ10 gets it deep between the teeth and into gum pockets, increasing concentration where it is needed most, suppressing inflammation and encouraging happy, pink gums. Medium chain triglycerides, or MCT oil, is an ultra-concentrated coconut oil. By infusing your oral ecology with nourishing MCT the detoxification process deepens, and the mouth achieves optimal balance.

All Organic Ingredients
Coconut MCT Oil – Organic, unrefined coconut naturally contains both medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) and long chain triglycerides (LCTs). The MCT, including caproic acid, caprylic acid, and capric acid, have incredible benefits for the mouth, body, and brain. MCT oil is potent and effective. Unlike whole coconut oil, MCT oil stays liquid at room temperature.
Seabuckthorn Berry (Hippophae rhamnoides) – Seabuckthorn is a serious soother to all oral sensitivities and tender gum proclivities! This rich, vital, supercritical extract is packed with perfect levels of essential fatty acids including omegas 3, 6, 7, and 9. With over 190 bioactive compounds, seabuckthorn berry oil infuses the mouth with beneficial vitamins, provitamins, phytosterols, carotenoids, and ultra-rare palmitoleic acids.
Rose Otto (Rosa damascene) – Precious rose otto is an effective toning agent for the entire oral cavity. It takes over 60 roses to create a single drop of rose otto oil!
Peppermint (Mentha piperita) – Pure peppermint oil is potently purifying for the teeth, tongue, breath, and gums. Synthetic peppermint flavoring of menthol offers zero medicinal benefits, which is why we always opt for pure, freshly distilled peppermint oil captured and cared for by a fourth generation family of French distillers.
Thyme Linalool (Thymus officinalis linalool) – Thyme linalool is a terrific toning agent for the entire mouth, with a gentle affinity for the gums. It is medicinally beneficial like regular thyme but gentler on delicate gum tissues.
Tea Tree Oil (Malaleuca alternifolia) – Traditional tea tree is naturally packed with magnificent mouth attendants. Potent plant compounds of cineole and propanol work to cleanse the mouth, balance bacteria, and ease inflammation. Tea tree is said to decrease plaque and gingivitis, and has been extensively studied for its role in oral health care by the Australian Dental Journal.
Cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum) – Pure-sourced cinnamon bark oil is warmly antiseptic and antibacterial. Captured from the bark of a tree growing deep in the wilds of Madagascar, this cleansing oil is purely potent and turns oil swishing into a stimulating experience!
Clove Bud (Eugenia carophyllata) – Clove bud oil is extracted from the beautiful buds of the clove tree and is a flower-fresh offering used to sweeten the breath for thousands of years. Clove bud has an extremely high ORAC rating, which measures its antioxidant capacity. The oral cleansing powers of clove bud are attributed to its high levels of sesquiterpenes, esters, and eugenol.
Co-enzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a fat soluble antioxidant with a chemical structure similar to vitamin K. It brings vitality to every cell in the body, and deficiency has been linked to periodontal disease.
Oregano (Origanum vulgare) – This herculean-heal-all hails from the harsh Mediterranean mountains. Wild oregano oil is packed with phenol compounds like carvacrol and thymol. It is a potent antibiotic and is keeps microbial balance in check and destroy the bacteria that cause plaque and gum disease.
