FACE: Oil Pulling 101
Now if you’ve never heard of this before, it might sound really strange but believe me: it’s not some hippie, hobo bullshit.
What you need:
– 1 to 2 teaspoons of coconut oil: use organic, cold pressed coconut oil
What you do:
– Put it in your mouth and swirl it around for 10 to 20 minutes (I know this is a very long time but you’ll get used to it after a couple of times)
– spit out the oil in your toilet or bin. Don’t spit it out in your sink, the coconut will harden and might clog your pipes.
How it works:
The oil will act as a magnet pulling toxins, bacteria, and microbes from every corner in your mouth. The toxins are held in the solution and once you spit it out the body is free of them. Not only will it improve your mouth hygiene and prevent and cure cavities (in combination with the right diet), without the burden of constantly fighting off oral infections, mouth bacteria and their toxins your body can focus on other things. Oil pulling is therefor also known to clear sinuses, alleviate allergies and decrease headaches.
