Oral FIX-ation: HEALING GARGLE

Virgin coconut oil has anti-viral properties so it can help speed up the healing process for canker and cold sores, herpetic sores and sore throats.

  • Take a tablespoon or two of Know-It-Oil (you can drizzle it on salads or use it for cooking, too…and then use it as an excellent skin moisturizer, soother, anti-aging humectant and anti-inflammatory!).
  • Take the oil and swirl it around your mouth. Try to get the oil to go over your gums, tongue and the insides of your mouth.
  • Tilt your head back and gargle with the oil to get the tips of the throat and the sinuses.
  • Repeat frequently.
