How Oil Pulling Works
Oil pulling literally pulls toxins, bacteria, fungus, and other yucky bugs from the mouth and body, helping to clean the blood.

How To Oil Pull
It’s easy. Just take a tablespoon of raw vegetable oil (I use coconut oil because of it’s other benefits) swish it around in your mouth for 5-10 minutes (I do it while preparing breakfast for my kids). Then spit it out into a garbage can because you do not want to contaminate your sink. Then rinse and brush! Wah lah!
