Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic tradition that helps to detoxify the mouth and body by simply swishing oil in your mouth for up to 20 min. Usually, sesame, coconut, or olive oil is used.
Oil pulling works by cleaning (detoxifying) the oral cavity. Similarly, that soap cleans dirty dishes. It literally sucks toxins out of the mouth and creates a clean, antiseptic oral environment that contributes to the proper flow of dental liquid that's needed to prevent cavities and disease. It also helps things such as hangovers and bad breath whitens teeth, prevents cavities, improves acne, reduces inflammation, gives you energy, and so much more.
Oil pulling is so beneficial and can make a difference in your oral health. Choose an oil of your choice (sesame and coconut oil are my favs) and give it a try. Swish for 20 min, spit out, rinse your mouth with warm water or even salt water, scrape your tongue with a tongue scraper or a spoon, brush your teeth as usual, and enjoy your beautiful fresh clean smile.
Smiling is so essential to overall happiness. Smile at strangers and anyone you can. It's your gift to the world.
