This morning I tried oiling pulling for the first time. I think giving birth was much easier lol It was the most horrible experience ever. But knowing me, I'll do it again!!! I lasted a whole 9 minutes. Ugh When I spit it out it was nasty tasting ... like rotted onions or something lol So it must of did something! My teeth felt like I just got back from a cleaning at the dentist. Seriously! :) But that was all I noticed besides an upset stomach from having it in my mouth for so long. lol
For those that don't know what it is, it's a detox for your mouth, and over all system. Put a spoonful of unrefined cold compressed virgin oil in your mouth, I used coconut but I think any would work and swishing it in your mouth for 20 minutes. I'm not sure how people last that long lol Then spit it out, rinse your mouth with warm salt water then brushing your teeth and tongue. Also you will have to scrape your tongue with a tongue cleaner or just a regular metal teaspoon. There are a bunch of benefits, too many for me to even remember, but the two that stick out (and the reason why I wanted to try it) are clearer sinuses and whiter teeth.
Here are a few videos on it
If you tried this or are going to try it, please let me know your thoughts!
