Have you ever heard of oil pulling? Did you ask yourself what it is and why people are doing it? No? Well, then this post will bring some clarity.
Oil pulling is a method to do mouth cleansing in a natural way. It is an ancient Ayurvedic healing practice and has been used in coconut producing countries for hundreds of years.
You can do oil pulling with different kinds of oil but it is mostly done with coconut oil. We at Chi also use coconut oil for our oil pulling, which is organic, raw, virgin and cold-pressed. It has a lot of benefits and is pleasant to the taste. Moreover, coconut oil has strong antibacterial properties, which is very advantageous when doing oil pulling.
You mainly do oil puling to receive a better oral hygiene and get rid of bacteria in your mouth. The method to do it is very simple and easy. You just have to swish the coconut oil in your mouth for around 20 minutes. Do this preferably in the morning before you eat or drink anything. After that, you spit it out into the trash or toilet. Don’t swallow it! The oil should look milky and be watery now. If it isn’t, you didn’t swish it long enough. You shouldn’t spit it into the sink as it contains all the toxins from your mouth. Furthermore, you don’t want to clog your sink drain. Afterwards, rinse your mouth with warm sea salt water, as it will kill any lingering bacteria. But that is optional. What you definitely have to do is to brush your teeth afterwards!
You not only receive a better oral hygiene by doing oil pulling. There are more benefits coming with it. Some examples are a better breath and better overall hygiene in the mouth, whiter teeth, the healing of bleeding gums, better skin or the detoxification of your body. But as already said, these are just some examples out of a lot. Furthermore, coconut oil also contains a lot of vitamins that are easily digestible. It provides you with vitamin A, D, E and K.
If you want to have visible results, you should do oil pulling for at least two weeks. The Chi Oil Pulling kit is available in a two-week course, a four-week course or a six-week course. As you should do the oil pulling every day, the courses contain one sachet for every day. After a few days you will see the first results and you will notice the benefits.
If you have never tried oil pulling before, you should now! We have listed the benefits and it is so easy to integrate it into your daily routine. Oil pulling is the natural and healthy way compared to all the other chemical methods, which are more harmful than helping. So if you want to give your body a treat, try oil pulling.
