Oil Pulling

Oil Pulling may be new to some of you but I thought I would share my experience with it and how I do it.

First of all, what is oil pulling?  Think of opposites attract and magnetic properties.   It is the process of swishing coconut, sunflower or sesame oil around in your mouth to remove toxins and bad bacteria from your mouth and body.   I like to think of it like removing greasy stains from your clothing.  You add oil to recreate the grease and that helps remove the stain.   Apparently toxins, bad bacteria and plaque are attracted to the oil and so it acts like a magnet to remove them.

How I pull:   I put 7 oz. of coconut oil into the microwave for 30 seconds to liquify.   Then I add 1/2 tsp of peppermint oil to it and stir.   I pour the melted oil into a star shaped ice tray and freeze for 30-60 minutes.   I then remove the solidified stars and store them in a pretty jar with a lid in my bathroom for daily use.   I put 1 star in my mouth before bath and switch while I bath.   When I get out about 20 minutes later, I spit it out into a little plastic solo cup (available at the Dollar Tree).   After it solidifies again, I through the cup away.   This way my pipes don't get clogged.

My experience is that my teeth stay white and plaque between my teeth is removed.  In addition, my husband and daughter have been able to avoid painful mouth sores.   I also believe that it helps remove inflammation in my elbow.

I highly recommend doing this for just the simple benefits of whitening your teeth safely.   It obviously does so much more.

If you pull, please share your experience.
