Oil pulling is a traditional Ayurveda technique that is basically to rinse your mouth with oil much like you would with a mouthwash. Oil pulling has lots of health benefits as it detoxifies and cleanses your body. It helps to make your teeth whiter, prevents cavities, breath becomes fresher, clears skin, reduces pain, allergies and much more.
Oil pulling therapy should be done early morning.
- Put 1-2 tsp of vegetable oil, coconut oil or olive oil into your mouth. ( I prefer extra virgin coconut oil)
- Swish/rinse for 20 mins.
- Make sure the oil reaches every corner of the mouth and spit it out into the toilet or trash, do not swallow the oil.
- Rinse well with warm water and brush as usual to clean the mouth of the toxins.
