So you’re thinking about oil pulling, but how would you go about it? Here’s a step-by-step guide on how you oil pull!
1. Place 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in your mouth filling it with around 40% of your mouth’s capacity and swish it around for 20 minutes. Be sure not to swallow the coconut oil!
2. Spit the oil into a trash can or green bin when you’re finished. It’s best not to spit it down the drain or toilet since the oil may cause damage to your pipes.
3. At this point, you can rinse your mouth with water and brush your teeth as usual. I personally like the taste of coconut so I just let it linger until the next time I eat or drink.
4. Repeat this process 1 time per day for the best results.
The fourth and final step of oil pulling is the most difficult. It must be done on a regular basis and developed into a habit. It’s true that seeing the advantages of oil pulling is a marathon, not a sprint, but your oral hygiene will thank you for your time and effort.
If you are more of a visual learner, I also show the oil pulling process in my 3 month experience video.
