Oil pulling is the simplest and most effective way to remove bacteria, toxins, and parasites that live in your mouth. If you feel a sore throat coming on use sesame oil to try the oil pulling. You can use sesame, pumpkin seed or olive oil.
- In the morning take 1 full tablespoon of oil into the mouth and slowly “chew” it, pulling the oil between your teeth and around your gums for about 20 minutes. Then spit it out.
- Do not swallow the oil, as it contains bacteria and toxins.
- After pulling and splitting out rinse your mouth with warm water and brush your teeth thoroughly.
