Every morning we start our day with many rituals and one of them is Oil pulling.
It it so healthy and you can even do it while showering!
Curious about what it is and what the benefits are?
Keep on reading than!
WHAT IS OIL PULLING?
- Natural way to detoxify the body.
- Comes from Ayurvedic medicine.
- Daily oral care with coconut oil.
- Less plaque.
- Whiter teeth.
- Fresh breath.
- Detoxification of the body and healing of meridians in the tongue.
- Rejuvenates the skin.
- The cold-pressed oil naturally attracts bacteria and toxins.
- The oil also binds dirt and waste to itself and thus removes bacteria from the body.
- Activates the metabolism.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
- Take 1 tablespoon of organic coconut oil.
- Rinse your mouth with the oil for 3-20 minutes (you can do this immediately after getting up and in the shower!)
- As the minutes go by, the oil mixes with saliva and the oil gets thinner.
- When the time is up, spit out the oil, so you don’t swallow it.
TIPS TO GET STARTED:
- The best time is in the morning, immediately after getting up on an empty stomach and before brushing.
- After rinsing, wait half an hour before eating. Before doing oil pulling, you can use a tongue scraper (new blog very soon!).
- Take the oil in your mouth, for example when you take a shower.
- When you suffer from the muscles in your face, you put too much force, this is not the intention.
- It takes some getting used to, so if it doesn’t work at first and you accidentally swallow the oil, don’t worry.
- If the color of the oil is white when you spit, you have rinsed long enough.
- Then rinse your mouth thoroughly with lukewarm water, possibly with a little Himalayan salt.
- Drop your head back from time to time so that the back of your mouth is also reached.
- Spit out the oil into a bag or onto a discarded paper towel.
- Doing this daily for a period of time would be most effective, but a few times a week also gives positive results.
- Start with 3 minutes and then every day you build up with one minute.
- The longer you do the oil pulling, the most benefits that you will have.
So, easy right?
