Oil Pulling 101

Oil pulling has been a common detoxification practice for centuries. You can use coconut oil or sesame oil. To do this, put 1-2 tablespoons of oil in your mouth and swish the oil for 5-20 minutes. Then, spit the oil into the trash can (to avoid it hardening and clogging up your sink). Rinse your mouth with water and sea salt and brush your teeth.

For maximum benefits, Oil pulling should be done on an empty stomach. The best times are upon rising and before bed. If you are doing both oil pulling and tongue scraping, I suggest you start with the oil pulling.

Benefits of oil pulling include:

  • Kills bacteria

  • Helps to reduce gum inflammation

  • Helps eliminate bad breath

  • Helps reduce cavities

  • Brightens teeth
