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.
