For best results, oil pulling should be done after you've brushed your teeth.
- Make sure the coconut oil is runny and hasn't solidified, and simply place a teaspoon full in your mouth.
- Swish the oil around your mouth and between your teeth for 5-15 minutes.
- Spit the oil out and rinse.
HINT: If you are not a fan of coconut oil, you can also try sesame oil.
Oil pulling is an ancient ayurvedic therapy for maintaining oral hygiene and whitening teeth. It has been used for thousands of years and is backed by modern medical studies proving it to be an effective method at reducing plaque formation and plaque induced gingivitis.
