How To Oil Pull

Have you heard of oil pulling? It sounds like such a technical term, but it is the easiest step that you can take toward a healthier (and even whiter) smile.

What Is Oil Pulling?

Oil pulling is usually done after flossing and before brushing.

It involves putting a tablespoon full of sesame oil or coconut oil into your mouth, swirling it for 10–20 minutes, and spitting it out. Adding a drop or two of essential oils (like peppermint oil) further ensures anti-bacterial and anti-fungal benefits.

Benefits Of Oil Pulling

  • Improves the health of your gums
  • Detoxifies the mouth
  • Naturally whitens the teeth
  • Prevents tooth decay
  • Helps prevent bad breath
  • Decreases sinus issues
  • Helps support digestion.
  • Boosts the immune system

These are some pretty spectacular benefits, right?

It is important to take a look at your dental practices. I talk about this a great deal as there is a lot of toxicity in conventional toothpastes and mouthwashes.

Now that you know the benefits and you want to jump on board, you are probably wondering how to oil pull? I have got you covered with this quick video. Watch it.
