Oil Pulling is a popular Ayurveda Indian tradition, which has been going on for years, but has recently caught our attention. It is a technique where one puts a spoonful of oil in their mouth. Pull the oil through the teeth for sometime and then spit it out.
How to do it?
- Step one involves choosing oil. Choose from coconut, olive, sesame or sunflower oil
- Put one tablespoon of oil in your mouth and then squish it around for 20 minutes, pulling it between your teeth. Be slow and gentle or else you will end up with a stiff jaw
- Once the time is up, carefully spit it out. Make sure that you don’t end up consuming the oil, because that oil will contain toxins
- After spitting it out, swish your mouth with warm salt water and then brush
