30 Day Oil Pulling Challenge
Updated: Feb 23, 2019
Oil pulling with coconut oil
I first found out about oil pulling a couple of years ago and it has changed the health of my mouth.
A little over 2 years ago I had 2 cavities when I had x-rays done at the dentist. In recent years - I have been very into natural ways to heal my body and reduce the number of toxins and chemicals that I ingest, put on my skin, etc. So, instead of just accepting that I needed to have some chemical put in to keep it sealed; I went on a search for something natural I could try and came across oil pulling.
Well - good news I was at the dentist on Feb 14th, 2019 and there are no cavities. So, its working.
Here is the recipe I use:
1 tea spoon of coconut oil Pinch of Charcoal
2 drops tea tree essential oil
2 drops clove essential oil
I swish this 1 time a day for 15-20 minutes. When I started though - I only did 5 minutes, 2 times per days. and worked my way up to the once - for 20 minutes.
I start be scraping the coconut oil into a spoon, the flipping the spoon over and dipping the coconut oil into the activated charcoal. Then I add the drops of essential oil. Make sure not to swallow any of the oil as it is now full of bacteria.
Spit it into your compost or garbage as - it can clog the pipes when the oils starts to solidify again. Rinse with warm water and then brush and floss as normal ( you can also floss before you start the pulling)
You do not need to swish vigorously just gently is fine. Day 1: 5 minutes Day 16: 14 minutes per day
