REALLY White Teeth
If you’ve spent any time on social media the last few years you’ve seen the results of “oil pulling”. This is an ancient technique for whitening teeth and expelling toxins from your mouth. You take a tablespoon of coconut oil and swish it around in your mouth for up to 20 minutes. Most people have to work their way up to 20 minutes. Start off with whatever you are comfortable with. The “paste” will break down inside your mouth and feel like it’s expanding (it is!). When you have swished all you can, spit the coconut oil into a tissue. (don’t spit it in the sink or toilet, it can expand and clog those over time). Rinse your mouth with warm water afterwards and make sure to brush your teeth. Coconut oil does an amazing job of whitening your teeth. It also pulls toxins from your body. That’s why you don’t want to swallow it! Don’t panic if you do, just don’t swallow everyday. People are reporting incredible fast whitening results using oil pulling.
