I just discovered this new phenomenon known as Oil Pulling! As illustrated in the pic above (photo cred: thebeautydepartment) you choose the oil of your choice, swish it around in your mouth for twenty-minutes, spit, rinse and brush your teeth. It is supposed to pull toxins out of the mouth, whiten teeth and improve heart health. I attempted the technique last night with coconut oil. I will admit that swishing for twenty-minutes seems a little excessive and is something I'll have to work up to, (I probably lasted no more than 5 minutes) but I'm interested in seeing if it lives up to all of the hype.
