What is oil pulling? I just started hearing about this a few weeks ago. Of course I had to start googling it and now I am trying to do it every morning. Oil pulling is an ancient folk remedy that can improve oral health as well as provide incredible detox benefits. It helps heal literally everything on or in your body and makes it look better as well.

Some things people report from oil pulling:

Whiter teeth
Prevents cavities and gingivitis
Cures hangovers
General body detox
Improves sleep issues
Helps improve acne, eczema, psoriasis and other skin issues
Helps with sinuses and allergies
Improves breath
Improves hormonal imbalances
Improves pain

What you’ll need:
A jar of Organic Unrefined Coconut Oil (or sesame oil, sunflower)
A tablespoon.

You put a tablespoon of coconut oil in your mouth every morning. First thing. So before you brush your teeth or have that first cup of coffee. You put it in your mouth and swish it around for 10-20 minutes! Yes, that long. Then it is recommended you spit it in the trash (it can clog drains). After that just rinse your mouth out with water and brush your teeth.

I have only been doing this for 4 days so I am not sure how well it works but I will be sure to report back. Anyone see any health improvements after oil pulling? I would love to hear about them in the comment section!
