If you haven’t heard of oil pulling, it’s the Ayurvedic practice of gargling and swishing oil around in your mouth for an extended period of time to improve mouth health, skin health and bodily health.

Using coconut oil (the tastiest, in our opinion) swish the oil around for 20 minutes and then spit the oil into the garbage. Do not swallow and do not spit it in your sink, the oil will have bacteria in it after gargling and the oil will clog your pipes!

Now let’s learn what it does!

Here are 7 Benefits of Oil Pulling

1. Treats Bad Breath

Bad breath is generally caused by the chemicals and gases that are produced from the bacteria in your mouth. When you eliminate the bacteria through oil pulling you can also eliminate or reduce bad breath.

2. Jaw Soreness

Oil pulling can help alleviate pain and soreness in your jaw and mouth. When you gargle oil for 20 minutes, every other day, your mouth will become very strong and you won’t be as susceptible to jaw pain.

3. Improves Skin Health

When you eliminate toxins from your mouth, your body will not be able to absorb them into the blood stream; which is a good thing! People have reported their acne, eczema and psoriasis subsiding after just a couple weeks of regular oil pulling.

4. Whitens Teeth

When you oil pull you are stripping the gingivitis and other bacterium from your teeth that cause them to turn a pale yellow. After just 2-3 weeks of oil pulling, your teeth will be brighter and whiter… without those toxic chemicals and harmful teeth whitening products at the drug store!

5. Reduces Migraines and Headaches

Built up toxins can lead to frequent migraines and headaches. Studies have shown that migraines and headaches due to tension are almost always in connection with your body’s retention of harmful toxins and bacteria. Oil pulling helps eradicate the bacteria in your mouth before your body even has a chance to retain it.
