Oil Pulling

Hello!! It's Monday, and I have been slacking on my oil pulling. I started it a few months ago to whiten my teeth, but I fell off the wagon. So, this morning I started again.

How I oil pull:
  • I do it first thing in the morning when I wake up. I have a jar of Trader Joe's Organic Virgin Coconut Oil on my night stand (this is the BEST coconut oil I have ever tried. If you have a Trader Joe's near you, get some!!)
  • I take a glob of the coconut oil and let it melt in my mouth
  • I swish it around in my mouth for about 15 minutes - find something to do that will distract you from the 15 minutes of swishing - I take a shower
  • Once you are done, spit it into the TRASH not the sink
  • I then rinse with warm salt water, and then brush me teeth
There are so many benefits of oil pulling:
  • detoxes
  • whitens teeth
  • helps with sleep
  • promotes oral health
  • clearer skin
  • increases energy

xo, p+c
