What the heck is oil pulling? And why you should be doing it.

Hi friends! Happy Friday! I wanna talk something I’ve been doing for years, and have had great results with, oil pulling. It seems a lot of my friends have been posting about it lately so I wanted to give everyone the facts on it.

Oil pulling is a technique taken from the ancient tradition of Ayurvedic medicine from 3,000 years ago. It’s the act of swishing around coconut, sunflower, or sesame oil  for 20-30 minutes and then spitting it out.

I personally prefer coconut oil because of the taste.. It seems to work the best for oil pulling. I love all brands of coconut oil, as long as they’re organic. 👌🏼

There are a lot of claims out there about reversing digestion, immunity, and weight loss, but I want to tell you what I know to be true.

1. It has whitened my teeth. I truly noticed a change from this right away after using it consistently for about a week.

2. It helps with bad breathe. I do believe using this method in the morning and evening before bed has helped when used regularly. I also feel like it is truly cleansing in the morning.

3. It prevents cavities. I have been cavity free for years now. I believe a huge reason why is because of coconut oil and also using fluoride free toothpaste.

Can we be honest with ourselves here, what can’t coconut oil do? 😂 I use it regularly as hair mask, make up remover, in cooking, baking, and household uses. I mean this stuff is pure amazing and the answer to a lot of everyday issues.

This is also husband approved. My hubby is a huge fan of oil pulling as well. He’s better at doing it regularly than I am and I know he loves it.

See you in my next post.  ✌🏼
