What is It
The practice of oil pulling goes back to the use of Ayurvedic medicine. This is a practice found in India that is more than 3000 years old. Oil pulling is something people do to improve their oral health. It is a simple process that involves a few steps.

•  Step One - Use one teaspoon of oil, coconut, sesame and olive oil are the most commonly used
•  Step Two - Swish it around the mouth for 15 - 20 minutes without swallowing
•  Step Three - Spit it out, just not in the sink or toilet, use the garbage
•  Step Four - Rinse well with water

Repeat the process up to three times a day, several times a week.

Why Do It

•  Reduces bad breath
