Oil pulling is an ancient dental technique which involves swishing a tablespoon of some kind of natural oil in your mouth for 15-20 minutes in order to improve your oral health. This method will kill all the bacteria in your oral cavity and detox your gums and teeth, while whitening your teeth at the same time.
People who have tried oil pulling say that it can also treat asthma, skin conditions, headaches, hormonal imbalance as well as infections. However, it is mostly aimed towards your oral health and will help you get rid of dental tartar, plaque and bad breath for good.
The technique is easy to follow – just put a couple of teaspoons of coconut, olive or sesame oil in your mouth and swish it around. Spit the oil out after 20 minutes and rinse with water well. We recommend you try the technique in the morning before breakfast or right before going to bed for best results.
During the process, the oil will become thick and milky in texture, and should be creamy white when you’re done. Rinse your mouth with water in the end and brush your teeth afterwards. Of course, the technique might be difficult at first, but you will get used to it. Start using it today and you will have a pearly white smile in just a short time.
