Oil Pulling is an Ayurvedic dental technique that supposedly draws out toxins in your body. It primarily improves oral health, but it also can improve your overall health.
- Teeth whitening
- Detoxify teeth/gums
- There have been numerous testimonials from people who experienced benefits beyond the mouth: improving skin conditions, headaches, infections, asthma, liver problems, & more.
How to Oil Pull
- Buy extra virgin cold pressed organic coconut oil, sunflower oil, or olive oil. If you want to be fancy, alternate oils every couple of days.
- First thing in the morning, swish a TBSP of oil in your mouth for about 20 minutes, no longer.
- Spit it in the garbage, not your sink because it will clog it. Rinse your mouth out and proceed to brush/floss teeth.
