How to perform it?
Oil pulling is very simple. You just need a couple of teaspoons of any vegetable oil such as coconut, olive or sesame oil. Put the oil in your mouth and swish it for about 20 minutes. Make sure not to swallow any of the oil because it contains the bacteria that were in your mouth. Spit it out and then rinse with water. Oil pulling is most efficient if performed in the morning before you eat or drink anything or at night before you go to bed.
Put 1-2 teaspoons of any vegetable oil that you prefer and swish it for about 20 minutes. Spit it out and rinse your mouth with lukewarm water. The oil thickens during the swishing and it should be white and creamy when you spit it. In the end, brush your teeth as you usually do.
Keeping a spoonful of oil in your mouth may be hard at first but you will get used to it. Performing oil pulling regularly will make your smile bright and white in a matter of days.
