The in’s & out’s of OIL PULLING!
I really have grown to love this process! It has benefited my oral health tremendously.
•1-2 tbs of coconut oil (food grade)
•1-2 drops of your favourite cleansing essential oil (my fav is the OnGuard, protective blend from doterra)
•Simply scoop your coconut oil, and add your essential oil to it.
•Swish it in your mouth for about 20 mins.
Note – this can be tiring for some in the beginning. That’s okay. Just swish as long as you can and your cheek strength will improve over time.
•Spit it out in the garbage (especially if you have a septic system).
•Rinse your mouth with warm water.
•Brush and floss as per your normal routine.
If you do not like the taste of coconut oil you can switch it out for MCT oil. This will have the same benefits as the coconut oil however it is a tad more expensive. Please note that MCT oil is always in a liquid state.
