COCONUT OIL PULLING
Although 'Oil Pulling' has been around for quite some time, its recently gained a lot more attention especially amongst natural health circles and rightly so may we add!
Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic health ritual, it is an oral detoxification procedure that is done by simply swishing oil in your mouth to draw out toxins in your body. Its swiftly becoming a popular natural procedure and an increasing number of people are using it as part of their daily regime, primarily to improve oral health but also to improve your overall health.
As the mouth is home to millions of bacteria, viruses and other toxins, coconut oil’s antibacterial and antiviral properties makes it especially well-suited for oil pulling. During this, the oil acts like a cleanser and creates a clean, antiseptic oral environment but it doesn’t stop there, oil pulling has many reported benefits like being great to help whiten teeth, reduce headaches, provide relief to sinus flare ups and more!
The only question now is, what are you waiting for? Simply put 1-2 teaspoons of coconut oil into the mouth (preferably on an empty stomach) and swish for 10- 20 minutes. The oil will get thicker and milky as it mixed with saliva, then spit it out in the bin and rinse your mouth with warm water and brush your teeth. Incorporate this into your daily routine and let the results speak for themselves!
