Oil Pulling - An Oral Health Boost | Evermine Blog | www.evermine.com
Oil pulling is an Ayurvedic medical practice that is used to strengthen the tissues of the mouth, including teeth, gums and lips; it is said to prevent decay, bad breath, and bleeding gums, and it is also used to improve the senses and “invigorate the mind.” The therapy goes like this: every day, you gently swish a small amount of sesame oil in the mouth for 10-20 minutes, then spit the oil into the waste basket and rinse with water. This is said to clean the mouth by capturing oil-loving particles that may be stuck to the teeth and gums, including bacteria. Learn more about oil pulling here.
