I am sure a lot of you have heard about oil pulling…especially recently, it seems to be popping up everywhere in the last month or so.
I read this article (that several friends posted) http://www.fashionlush.com/wtf-is-oil-pulling-why-im-hooked/ and it sounded like something I might be interested in trying. Then I saw a few friends say they were going to do it. Then I saw some people in some of my Facebook groups talking about doing it.
Finally after some people started to post their results, I bit the bullet and decided to try oil pulling myself.
Let me start off by saying that I did NOT like the texture of the coconut oil in my mouth, before it liquified. Totally eew LOL, but I was fine once it liquified. I did however create a LOT of saliva. I had to spit some out several times. I only did 10 mins my first time, instead of 20, because I had already spit 3 times. I think a small part of my huge saliva problem was my initial gage reflex, so hopefully that will be better next time and i won't produce so much as quickly.
BUT, even after only 10 minutes my teeth were visibly whiter. I am also pretty sure that it cleaned out my sinus's because afterwards my nose started to run like crazy and I had to blow it a lot, but after about 10-15 minutes it was fine.
I will definitely be doing it again. What about you? Do you oil pull? Have you thought about trying it?
