Hello Ladies and Gents!
I was put on to “Oil Pulling” (OP) about a year ago. My friend Michelle and I were really into skin care and we were using Aveeno Products and talking about how great our skin looked. I’m a bargain shopper so I was sharing stores that I had I seen the product on sale. I mentioned it to her in passing and we did some research on it and agreed to try it. I don’t think she did but I tried it and have been hooked since. Here are the benefits I got from OP
1. Weight loss
2. Less sugar cravings
3. In 3 days the space where my wisdom tooth was extracted healed. Until then it bled a lot non-stop and the gum on the tooth beside the extracted tooth began to become inflamed and separate from that tooth. After oil pulling, the bleeding stopped and the gum healed up.
4. My skin glowed! I actually began to go make up less outside and there was not difference between then and a full face of concealer and foundation
5. Bumps and black heads went away
6. My skin looked younger. I already look youthful as it is (without make up) but oil pulling made me look like I was even younger which is incredible considering how young I already look.
7. Improved my mood
8. Improved my digestion and I became more regular
9. Hardly a hint of morning breath let’s call it ladies everyone gets morning breath! lol
10. Back pain reduced

Ok, convinced yet?? Here’s how you Oil Pull to get these benefits
1. In the morning before you eat or drink, take 1 tsp of either oil choice above and swish it around in your mouth between your teeth for 10 minutes until the liquid becomes white and frothy. Sound disgusting but it works. Once the 10 mins have elapsed spit it out in the toilet and brush your teeth but do not swallow the mixture as its believed to contain parasites and bacteria extracted out of your mouth during the pulling.
A good theory behind why this works is because the mouth harbours a lot of bacteria and parasites that can get into your body through swallowing, and through the walls of your mouth that then attacks your organs and bloodstream causing a lot of health conditions. Plaque is a culmination of food and bacteria. The oils soften the plaque and is carried out of your mouth when you expel the mixture into the toilet. Now this is a theory and I don’t know if this for sure is what happens. In fact, why oil pulling works so well is still a mystery but I do know what it has done for me. As soon as I stopped OP, within about 4 days my complexion becomes dull, and I begin to break out and all the benefits I had before start to disappear.
I plan to start this again.
Try this and tell me what you think. If you’ve already done this and benefited I’d love to hear from you. Talk soon!
