You may or may not have heard of oil pulling. It’s an ayurvedic practice that has been around for thousands of years and its health benefits are impressive, especially for dental hygiene.

Oil pulling dental health benefits includes:

  • Kills bad bacteria.
  • Reduces bad breath.
  • Prevents cavities.
  • Reduces inflammation.
  • Improves gum health.
  • Whitens teeth.
  • Pulls out toxins.
  • Heals bleeding gums.
  • Reduces plaque.

In addition to dental health benefits, oil pulling is also known to clear blocked nasal passages, prevent heart disease, and even kill a hangover!

The most common oils for pulling are coconut, sunflower, and sesame.  Simply place a teaspoon (you can work up to a tablespoon) of your favorite oil in your mouth and swish vigorously for 20 minutes. You may need to slowly increase to 20 minutes but even 5 minutes will create benefit. When finished, do not spit the oil down the drain as it will solidify and clog your plumbing; instead, spit it directly into a garbage can.

I prefer to use coconut oil like this: https://amzn.to/31SakBm
