Oil pulling is an ancient tradition receiving a lot of modern interest thanks to its natural ability to reduce stains, bacteria, and plaque on teeth. Coconut oil has been found to be an ideal choice because the lauric acid binds with the bacteria in the mouth during the swishing, or ``pulling`` process. After a few minutes, you spit out the oil and with it all of the funky stuff that leads to bad breath, inflamed gums, and plaque build-up. You will want to make sure you are using an alkaline oil, as other oils are acidic and can harm tooth enamel and dental work.
Instructions for Oil Pulling are simple and effective. First thing in the morning, simply place one tablespoon of Skinny & Co. Coconut Oil in your mouth. As the oil liquifies, begin to swish it around for 5 to 20 minutes (beginners can start with five and increase time gradually). Move the oil around your mouth, teeth and gums as if it were mouthwash, yet without gargling or swallowing it. You may begin to notice that the oil mixture will thicken the longer that you ``pull``. Once finished, dispose of the oil in the trash- do not swallow it. As a final step, rinse out your mouth with warm water and brush your teeth as normal. For best results, oil pull at least twice per week.
