Oil pulling

I recently came across the concept of “oil pulling” while browsing online, and I tried it today for the first time. I put a teaspoonful of coconut oil in my mouth and swished it around for five minutes, sometimes “pulling” it through the teeth. Five minutes seemed a little long, but some people recommend that one do it for as long as twenty minutes. I played a song on Youtube as I stood looking at the clock and swishing the oil around in my mouth. There are supposed to be various oral health benefits to doing it daily. My teeth do look a little shinier now, and so there is at least that one short-term benefit.

One does not swallow the oil. One spits it out when the time is up, into the trash, not into the drain. Coconut oil solidifies at temperatures under 76 degrees Fahrenheit.
