Learn with us step by step how the Oil Pulling is performed.
If you wear dentures, you should pull them out before the following application.
Take a tablespoon organic sesame oil, organic coconut oil or organic sunflower oil in your mouth. Do this in the morning immediately after getting up and on an empty stomach. Do not drink anything,not even water before Oil Pulling.
If periodontal disease, fungal problems or other infections exist in the mouth area, add a drop of grapefruit seed extract to the oil.
Now rinse with the oil for about 15 to 20 minutes, back and forth in the mouth. Keep the oil in your mouth in motion. Slurp and suck it back and through your teeth.
In between, you can always take a break, in which the oil can just sit in your mouth and work.
DO NOT GARGLE! Please make sure that you do not swallow any of the liquid, as it contains toxins and bacteria that you want to get rid of.
If you are experiencing a kind of muscle spasm – possibly due to the acidity of your cheek and jaw muscles – you are performing this step with too much ambition and effort. Try to tackle the Oil Pulling more relaxed and less vigorous.
