It’s a procedure in which 1 tablespoon of cold-pressed organic oil is swished in the mouth for approx. 20 minutes.
It’s an ancient Ayurvedic technique. After reaping so many benefits of Ayurveda, I personally, have full belief that Oil Pulling will work out in providing the best of benefits for my overall health.

From what I have read, Its called oil pulling, because in this technique the toxins are ‘pulled out’ . Toxins are also called as ‘ama’ in ayurveda.

I tried Oil Pulling today for the first time with Sesame Oil. Initially, I was a little apprehensive about taking ‘Raw’ Oil in my mouth. I was unsure about how a spoonful of Oil will feel in my mouth. But I was surprised to note that it was just like taking any normal liquid. No, it didn’t feel odd at all.

So, I took 1 tablespoon of cold-pressed organic Sesame oil in my mouth, and swished it gently, sometimes a little vigorously along-with some intermittent breaks…  Not too vigorously as it might cause jaw stiffness. After all, one needs to love oneself while doing it.

Honestly, I could only think of all the benefits that I am reaping while doing this age-old technique. No, could not think of anything else but the benefits of this therapy.

After about 10 minutes, I spit out the oil into the basin.

It feels amazing. I already feel my teeth & gums are healthier and better than before. I will continue to do Oil-Pulling in the coming days.

I can only recommend for you to try it out.
