Terra & Co. creates safe and sustainable oral care products with Mother Earth in mind. Brilliant Black Oil Pulling is powerful Ayurvedic coconut oil with activated charcoal teeth whitening blend packed with super-ingredients of activated charcoal and vitamin E.

The ancient Ayurvedic tradition recommends the practice of oil pulling with coconut oil—swishing oil around the mouth—as part of your daily self-care routine since it helps to strengthen teeth and gums and maintain overall oral health. The blend of coconut oil and activated charcoal works to naturally reduce inflammation, build-up, and bacteria that cause bad breath and dry mouth. Coconut oils natural microbial properties work to reduce pathogens in the mouth and further help to freshen breath, and the healthy fat in coconut oil strengthens tooth enamel. This Oil Pulling also promotes saliva production and works to moisturize gums to keep them healthy.
How To Use: To use this oil pulling for gums and mouth, simply use it like you would any other oral mouth wash. Pour 1 teaspoon of the oil in the mouth, first thing in the morning. Gently swish and swirl for 5-10 min daily. Discard into the trash can. Do not swallow. When finished brush your teeth as normal. For extra whitening effects use our charcoal-infused bamboo toothbrush.

Once enjoyed, all Terra & Co's sustainable oral care packaging can be recycled / upcycled.
Terra & Co. was created by two sisters, Amra and Azra. It all started with a label. How crazy is it that there’s a warning label on most tubes of toothpaste? They decided that we wanted a danger-free toothpaste. So, they made one.
Amra formulated the ingredients. Pregnant with her first daughter, Amra quickly learned that more than 232 chemicals make their way from the mother’s environment into the baby. Wanting something safe for everyone, Amra turned her kitchen into a toothpaste lab. The natural ingredients you see today were chosen by her. Azra designed the packaging. Along with health, sustainability is another aspect of Terra & Co.’s mission. Azra hones her fine arts background and work as a makeup artist to design the recyclable/biodegradable packaging.
