Did you know that your mouth is one of the dirtiest places in your body?

Oh, you did?

Well, did you know that a simple, easy habit will make your life better and cleaner, and you’ll be a better kisser to boot?

I’ve got a great little video to show you one of my detoxing magic tricks, a way to kill millions of bad-breath and cavity-causing bacteria, giving you fresh breath first thing in the morning!

In this article:

What Is Oil Pulling?

Oil pulling is a simple habit that comes from a centuries-old Ayurvedic tradition. This easy process kills harmful microorganisms in the mouth and teeth, alkalizes the mouth, and may even turn around oral or dental infections. Many use it to resolve headaches, as well.

Oils have an affinity for toxins, and this habit is a great purifying practice that you can do every day. Many biological dentists (including mine) recommend it for re-mineralizing bone in the teeth.

How To Oil Pull

I suggest keeping a tub of coconut oil and some wintergreen essential oil in your bathroom to make oil pulling as convenient as possible. Watch me demonstrate oil pulling in this short video, and learn more ways you can benefit from taking a few minutes with coconut oil, while making breakfast or getting dressed in the morning, for a great new health habit!

    Can’t watch the video.

    Seems your privacy settings are preventing us from viewing as it’s coming up as private on our end.

    Very important to tell people NOT to spit it in the sink or anywhere it will get in the water pipes as they will clog. Spit it in the trash.
    I add activated charcoal and a mix of essential oils to mine, like clove, rosemary, eucalyptus, lemon and tea tree.

    Will add Wintergreen to my routine thanks

  5. Hal Walter says:

    Can’t see anything.

    1. Rose Butler GSG says:

      Hi Hal, try restarting your computer and trying again. That may help.

  6. Daisy says:

    Thanks! Le’s see results then. I am using olive oil for now.

  7. 4waystoyummy says:

    I do this but I haven’t tried to add any essential oils to it. Do the oil increase the effectiveness or are they just for taste? You forgot to mention…Do not spit oil down the sink. LOL

    1. Rose Butler GSG says:

      Hi, essential oils can provide some additional benefits, however, if you don’t have any essential oils, the coconut oil itself does the trick.

  8. Ira Betina says:

    Great video going to start doing as like all natural products. Plus detoxifies and helps mouth become alkaline. Thanks for doing this.

    1. Rose Butler GSG says:

      You are welcome Ira!

  9. Tammy says:

    Do you need to use the essential oil or can you use the coconut oil by itself for this?

    1. Rose Butler GSG says:

      Hi Tammy, you can just use the coconut oil itself.

  10. Denise says:

    Ok I just tried this for the first time! I don’t know how you put so much in your mouth…I felt like I was going to drown! LOL. I made it 11 mins. My vigorous swishing through my teeth made it spout out of my lips a couple times but I survived! It was a comical experience and my dog was watching me tilting her head back and forth. I will try again in the morning! 🙂

    1. Rose Butler GSG says:

      Hi Denise, congrats on making it 11 minutes! I couldn’t the first few times. You can use less amount if it makes you feel better.

  11. Blood Kimberly says:

    Why do you have to use such a huge amount for this?
