Pulling an oil in your mouth every morning shortly after waking up can help you to detox and prevent bad breath by removing bacteria.
Few months ago I had never tried one. Some day me and my colleagues were having chat about morning routine. One of my colleague reviled that she is pulling oil in her mouth every morning for about 15 minutes before brushing the teeth. It was her Russian grandmother’s beauty secret. According to her grandmother it helped her to have beautiful hair and skin. Well… Although she really has clear skin and healthy hair. I am not sure if it is just because of swishing an oil around the mouth in the morning.
I did some research in the internet and found that indeed oil pulling has thousands years long history in Ancient Indian Ayurvedic medicine with bunch of health benefits. And I wanted to give it a try.
How to choose the oil for pulling?
My colleagues grandmother was using sunflower oil. Other people use coconut oil. Basically according what I read every high quality oil would work. Most of oils contains different vitamins, Omega-3 fatty acids and other very needed supplements for your health. For example, I use Guru Nanda Pulling oil.
Why I chose Guru Nanda Pulling oil?
First of all, because I believe that carefully chosen blend of different oils will work better than just one single oil. This oil mix contains Omega-3 fatty acids, iron, calcium, and magnesium, plus Vitamins A, B, and E. Sounds pretty awesome. If you do it once in a day a bottle last more than month. It also helped me with canker sores and inflamed gums. You can also check more than 900 people reviews on Amazon.
How to do it?
Take about a table spoon of oil in your mouth and swish it around your mouth about 15 minutes. I usually do it while showering. Do it in the morning after you wake up, but before drinking or eating anything. Then spit it out, do not swallow the oil you used. And brush your teeth afterwards.
