In this article we are going to discuss some of the benefits of oil pulling, an ancient technique that many say has lots of worthwhile benefits when done consistently.

So, what is oil pulling anyway? It is an Ayurvedic ritual that is more than 3,000 years old. The process involves you swishing around a preferably organic, cold pressed oil, in your mouth for up to twenty minutes.

The method to oil pulling successfully

If you really want to reap the full benefits of oil pulling and see the amazing benefits it can have for your teeth and health, it’s good to get the right technique down. It may not always be easy at first, for some gargling for a few minutes may be difficult let alone using oil to gargle for twenty minutes. It’s a good idea therefore to start small and build up to it. Whilst you are getting used to the texture of the oil in your mouth, start with something as simple as five minutes.

After a week you may be used to it and go to ten, and then when you’re ready you will be able to do fifteen minutes until you reach the twenty minute mark. Where there’s a will there’s a way and if you really want to reap some of the oil pulling benefits, you will need to be consistent in your efforts.

To experience the detoxifying effects it has on your body, you will want to use a certain technique. You need to be using a tablespoon of an oil of your choice. Some popular choices are olive oil and coconut oil. Coconut oil seems to be particularly effective as it has strong antibacterial properties so this may be a good one to start getting used to. Plus the taste is pleasant so who knows, you may even enjoy it!

For the duration of your pulling, you need to be swishing it around your mouth and for at least five minutes you should be pulling it between your teeth. This will help draw the toxins out. Whatever you do however, do not swallow the oil and when you are done, spit it out into the bin as it could harden in your sink and cause blockages later. After you are done, simply floss and brush as normal!

So now you know the technique, are you ready to find out some of the fantastic benefits of oil pulling?
