Oil pulling is an ancient Indian tradition that recently has received a lot of attention.
Traditionally, you simply swish an oil in your mouth, making sure to “pull” it between your teeth. You do this for about 20 minutes and then spit it out, making sure not to swallow the liquid. The idea is that the oil will “pull” toxins out of the mouth and that you should not swallow this, and thus ingest those toxins for your liver to have to process.
Many people will use coconut oil because of its beneficial properties. It has been shown to be helpful to support gum health.
The best time to do this is in the morning, and it is best to do it several days in a row to get improved benefits.
Remembering to do this isn’t always easy, but I discovered an easy way to remember. Young Living’s Thieves AromaBright Toothpaste has a coconut oil base! So I just take a pea-sized dab and start swishing, jump in the shower and swish away! After my shower, I spit it out and rinse my mouth. Then brush my teeth with the AromaBright Toothpaste.
I also discovered another way to kick it up a notch! Add a drop of Peppermint Essential Oil or Thieves Essential Oil, or both. WOW, does my mouth feel fresh after that! Give it a try! It’s a great way to start your day!
