The Health Benefits to Oil Pulling
What is Oil Pulling?
This oral therapy is a type of Ayurvedic medicine (a traditional Indian system) that dates back 3,000 years. It involves swishing approximately 1 teaspoon - 1 tablespoon of oil in your mouth for about 20 minutes then spitting it out. You can use any edible oil, however coconut oil is preferred. Unlike some so-called natural home remedies, oil pulling is not a practice that is based on pseudo-science. Recent studies show that oil pulling helps against gingivitis, plaque and microorganisms that cause bad breath. How does this work? Most microorganisms inhibiting the mouth consist of a single cell. Cells are covered with a lipid, or fatty, membrane which is the cell's skin. When these cells come into contact with oil they naturally adhere to each other. If you do your research, you will find that oil pulling benefits your health in many ways by helping with sinus and allergy issues, along with inflammatory type disease processes.
Steps in Oil Pulling
My Oil Pulling Recipe
2 tablespoons of coconut oil +
5 drops Thieves Oil +
5 drops Orange Essential Oil
I use the Thieves Oil because it has antibacterial properties and will help improve your immune system and also jump start the pulling process.
Orange Essential Oil naturally whitens your teeth so this is a perfect time to give your teeth extra attention.
Melt coconut oil and allow to cool off a bit, then mix Essential Oils until well blended. Coconut Oil solidifies at 76* F so if your house is like mine, it will not stay in its liquid form for long. Keep this mixture in a dark, class container and spoon in your bathroom for easy access.
