How to – Oil-Pulling
- Make sure to perform the oil pulling up on waking before eating, drinking anything, or brushing your teeth.
- Swish 1-2 teaspoons of cold pressed organic oils such as coconut oil (the best!) and sesame seed oil for 20 mins.
- Spit out the oil and rinse with warm salt water.
- Brush the teeth as usual.
** Time your oil pulling. As 20 minutes is definitely the ideal timing to dissolve the plaque and weaken or kill bacteria but not long enough that the body starts re-absorbing the toxins and bacteria that the oil chelated from the mouth. The oil will get thicker and milky as it mixed with saliva during the swishing but make sure not to swallow.
** If you are using coconut oil, spit out the oil in a trash can. Do not spit in the sink as it may solidify as the temperature goes down.
** Try this 3-4 times a week for the improvement.
