WHAT IS OIL PULLING?
“Oil pulling” is an ancient mouthwashing technique traditionally used for mouth-health and whole-body detoxification. While thousands of years old, the practice is gaining attention as an essential, and beautiful daily morning routine.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
We ingest so many toxins through our mouths and throats – it only makes sense that this is where they can also be removed (“pulled” out) from.
Pulling oil helps clean teeth, gums, mouth and throat. And, believers claim, it detoxifies the entire body by pulling out toxins from our lymph system (an essential part of our immune system, circulation, digestion and more).
At the same time, the oil gathers throat and sinus “gunk” – leaving you with a cleansed head overall. While effective for all of the above, pulling oil is gentle enough for sensitive teeth or inflamed gums (it’s actually quite soothing – especially the Peppermint and Spearmint blends).
WHY COCONUT OIL?
While some other oil types can be used, we use coconut oil because it contains Lauric acid, which is antimicrobial (antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal). The flavor is subtle and the benefits are big!
BENEFITS OF OIL PULLING:
Regular users claim whiter teeth, brighter eyes, glowing skin, boosted metabolism and cleaner mouths, throats and sinuses.
Others note less tooth sensitivity, fewer cavities, better breath, and soothed throats.
Reports online range from resolved skin conditions to relief from asthma, headaches and migraines, to rebalanced hormones and more.
HOW TO USE RX PULLING OIL:
1. Choose an oil flavor!
Whether you prefer minty-ness (Peppermint or Spearmint), or something more decadent (Cacao-Orange), all of the Rx oils are made with coconut oil – the essential ingredient.
2. Swish a tablespoon or so in your mouth like mouthwash.
The exact amount isn’t critical. And if your oil is solid, just use a spoon to scoop some out. It’ll melt almost immediately in your mouth. :)
3. Set a timer for 20 minutes.
This is long enough for the oil to really do its work, though if it’s too long for you – try for 5 minutes or 10 and work your way up.
Aim for a garbage can as coconut oil solidifies at cooler temperatures and may clog drains. Optional: After spitting, rinse your mouth with water or brush your teeth lightly to remove any excess oil. However, many people prefer not to do so – rather enjoying the flavor and nourishing oil a bit longer.
