Oil Pulling!

I’m experimenting with oil pulling! Pretty impressed so far! Oil pulling is an ancient practice for good oral health. Basically, you swish extra virgin oil (coconut, olive or sesame seem to be the standard) around your mouth for 10-15 minutes. The oils draw out and kill fungus and bacteria, including the bacteria that causes tooth decay. Oil pulling makes teeth, gums, and the jaw stronger, kills bacteria, helps with bad breath, and even whitens teeth. You can read more about it here! I wouldn’t think putting oil in my mouth would make it feel so clean, but it totally did. Also, I think my teeth are getting whiter!
