HOW DO YOU DO IT?
Oil pulling works best first thing in the morning, before eating, drinking, or brushing your teeth. Tear open a sachet and put it in your mouth. You can either put it directly into your mouth in solid form, or run the sachet under warm water so that it liquidizes. Swirl the oil through your mouth, gently pulling it through and around your teeth. Do not gargle or swallow the oil, as after pulling it will contain all the bacteria and toxins from your mouth. After 10-20 minutes, spit the oil into a trashcan and brush your teeth. Don’t forget to floss!
