Detox With Oil Pulling

Pulling oil is an ancient Ayurvedic practice that’s been around for more than 3,000 years. It is one of the best ways to detox the body. The idea is to swish a tablespoon of organic, cold pressed coconut oil around in your mouth from anywhere to four to twenty minutes maximum. The longer you swish, the better the results. You must pull the oil between your teeth before spitting it out. It’s imperative that you don’t swallow the oil, because then you’re swallowing all the bacteria and toxins that come from pulling and that will defeat the entire purpose. Once you spit it out, rinse your mouth with lukewarm water.

The benefits of oil pulling are quite impressive. It whitens teeth, increases energy, detoxifies the body, helps in hormonal changes, decreases headaches, maintains a clear complexion, and promotes total oral hygiene. (Colquhoun, 2014) Banyan Botanicals Daily Swish Ayurvedic Pulling Oil Mint Flavor is an excellent product to utilize for oil pulling.
