What is Oil Pulling?

Oil pulling is said to be a powerful means of maintaining good health as well as an effective cure for a variety of ills. Some would say it is the most effective method to detoxify and heal in natural medicine.

This is an ancient technique, first described in 5,000-year-old Ayurveda texts.

Ayurveda is a system of traditional medicine native to the Indian subcontinent and a form of alternative medicine.

A few different oils can be used and many opt for Lucy Bee Coconut Oil.

The practice is simple. Soon after waking, before eating or brushing your teeth, swish your mouth with 1 teaspoon of Lucy Bee Extra Virgin Fair Trade Organic Raw Coconut Oil.

If solid, it will quickly soften. Take a teaspoonful and then bite into it to melt it.

Swirl and swish it around in your mouth like a mouthwash. Push & pull it through your teeth and around your gums. This will activate the enzymes which draw out toxins. You could do this for anywhere from 5-20 minutes.

Do not swallow the oil - the idea is to get rid of  the 'nasties'. Once you finish, spit it out into a bin as the oil will solidify in your sink and may block it.

It promotes oral health as well as overall bodily wellness. This process is said to attract and eliminate bacteria, toxins and parasites which have taken up residence in your mouth and lymph system.

Oil pulling, with extra virgin coconut oil, is also thought to help naturally whiten teeth.

It's a good idea to keep a jar of Lucy Bee Extra Virgin Fair Trade Organic Raw Coconut Oil in the bathroom and the kitchen.
