oil pulling
 
Has anyone ever tried this?? I found it looking for home remedies for a toothache. I did it last night before bed and this morning and my teeth feel so clean!! On the other hand ive had some crazy nasal drainage and had a little chest congestion because of the weather change that is all coming out :yuck: Anyone want to share their experience with oil pulling.

I haven't tried oil pulling but try a neti pot for the nasal drainage.

I tried it for a little bit, but quit because I only had cheapo coconut oil. I've been meaning to get some better stuff and try again.

I just used the cold pressed evoo I had in my kitchen. It does leave a funky after taste so I'm thinking of trying something different.

What is oil pulling?

Scarlett's mommy 11-02-2012 09:31 AM

You swish oil in your mouth for 15-20 minutes without swallowing then spit it out. Its supposed to remove bacteria and toxins. Its said that it helps with teeth whitening and to remove plaque and a ton of other stuff.

15 minutes? Wow that's a long time. I can barely handle 30 seconds with mouthwash!
