In order to oil pull safe and effectively you need to follow some basic instructions. Oil Pulling is not the same as mouthwash. The most important step in the oil pulling process is to do the procedure at the correct time of day. You must make sure you begin with an empty stomach. Make sure you have not eaten for at least 4 hours. For most people, the ideal time would be first thing in the morning. As soon as you wake up start oil pulling.
You do not want to brush you teeth, eat, or drink anything before. You will need to set aside at least 10 minutes to switch and pull the oil through your teeth. Ideally you want to aim for 15-20 minutes.
Once you are ready to begin, take one tablespoon of your oil of choice. Make sure to check out the article on which oil is best for oil pulling. Now take your organic coconut oil, organic sunflower oil, or organic sesame oil and put the oil in your mouth. You will then want to slowly swish it around your mouth and pull it through your teeth. Move it front to back and side to side. You do not want to gargle or swish very rapidly. Make sure to slowly pull the oil through your teeth and remember to set a timer so you know how long you have. Shoot for 15-20 minutes but if you have to spit it out early you may do so, but you will not receive the maximum benefit.
You must absolutely never swallow the oil. The process of oil pulling is pulling toxins out of your body and you do not want to swallow them. If you do happen to swallow them don’t panic and call the poison control or anything, you will be fine. The worst that may happen is you may have an upset stomach for awhile.
When you are ready to spit the oil make sure that you spit it in the trash and not down the sink. You may clog your sink depending on the type of oil. After your 10-20 minutes is up you will notice that the oil has become a lot thinner in your mouth if you have been doing it right. You will also see the color change to white. If you still see yellow (does not apply to coconut oil) you were not correctly pulling the oil through your teeth or you did not do it long enough.
Now after you have spit the oil out you will want to rinse your mouth out with water and brush your teeth. You can do the process multiple times a day to detox quicker. If you have any questions or need help please leave a comment and we will do our best to answer.
