Curious about Oil Pulling?
Oil pulling is an age-old folk remedy that uses natural oils swished around the mouth, primarily to cleanse and detoxify the teeth and gums. Oil pulling is often associated with ayurvedic medicine, and has been reported to improve a host of conditions such as diabetes, asthma, headaches, and acne, as well as overall system detoxification. Oil pulling also has the added effect of whitening teeth naturally and evidence even shows that it is beneficial in improving gums and removing harmful bacteria!
Coconut oil is often the oil of choice when it comes to oil pulling, due primarily to coconut oil's antibacterial properties and pleasant taste. Coconut oil itself is turning out to be its own little healing miracle, with far too many health benefits and uses to list here and still do it justice. Other healthy oils may be used for oil pulling, such as flax seed oil, sesame oil, ghee, or oregano oil etc. But it is important to note that most people who practice oil pulling use coconut oil, so it may be that coconut is one of the reasons behind oil pulling's amazing health benefits. So remember, coconut oil is the preferred oil for oil pulling and so coconut oil is what you want to get at your earliest convenience. Extra virgin coconut oil is the best kind of coconut oil to use for this.
A tablespoon of coconut oil (recommended) or other oil is held or swished around the mouth for 10 to 20 minutes, and immediately spat out without swallowing any of the coconut oil. The oil pulling / swishing process is purported to draw out toxins and other impurities from your body into the coconut oil in your mouth. This is usually done first thing in the morning upon awakening, and before brushing your teeth, but may also be done at night before bed.
