It's so effortless. Just swish coconut oil around your mouth (like you would mouthwash) first thing in the morning while making your bed, packing your lunch, and making your juice/smoothies for the day. Then spit it out in the trash. Voila! Oil pulling.
Coconut oil is anti-microbial, kills bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
A few more benefits include:
reduces bacteria in the mouth
reduces migraines and headaches
increases oral health
reduces plaque on the teeth
reduces bad breath
decreases joint pain and stiffness
reduces liver and kidney stress
reduces chemical load
reduces risk of gum disease
increases mental awareness
increases overall physical health
I add peppermint oil to mine to make it minty fresh. After a couple of weeks of oil pulling I was asked by multiple people if I bleached my teeth. Such a simple way to detox with big results!
