My naturopath asked me to start oil pulling about 4 months ago to cleanse and detox my body. I have to admit, at first I thought I was going to gag. But now, I do it every day and got a clean report from my ND! I mix 1/2 cup organic coconut oil (i get mine from Trader Joe’s), 8 drops Thieves and 4 drops Tea Tree.
Put 1-2 teaspoons of oil blend into the mouth and swish for 15-20 minutes. Spit oil into the trash can. This is done so the oil doesn’t harden in your drain. Then I take rinse with a room temperature water with one drop of Peppermint added to make my mouth minty fresh. I notice that my teeth are whiter now too! Bonus!
There are many testimonies about oil pulling all over the web and I have to say that my personal testimony is that it works for me too!
