How to do Oil Pulling

Oil Pulling: A very powerful body detox.

  • Origin – Ayurvedic medicine
  • Cleansing and healing effect on mouth and sinuses
  • Produces whiter teeth, fresher breath, healthier gums
  • Beneficial for skin conditions
  • Decreases plaque and gingival indices (study)
  • Oil pulling has been used to prevent decay, bad breath, bleeding gums, dryness of throat, cracked lips and for strengthening teeth, gums and the jaw. (Review)
  • Effective against Streptococcus mutans, lactobacilli, and Candida albicans.

How to:

  • Before eating or drinking in the morning follow the procedure below.
  • Mix 2 Tbs of coconut oil with 2 or 3 drops of essential oil (I recommend Young Living Vitality dietary oils only for internal use).
  • Take 1 Tbs of coconut oil mixture into your mouth.
  • Swish the oil around your mouth and between the teeth for 20 minutes, if possible.
  • Work the oil around your teeth and gums.
  • Spit the oil in the garbage when finished.
  • Rinse your mouth and brush your teeth (use a non-toxic toothpaste!)

Why Coconut Oil?

Raw coconut oil

  • While other vegetable oils can be used I recommend raw, unrefined coconut oil
  • Coconut oil has anti-microbial properties.
  • Coconut oil has Lauric Acid.
  • Lauric acid has proven anti inflammatory and antimicrobial effects.
