Sof's trying - oil pulling

I'm oil pulling. In this very moment. 
What is oil pulling?
"Oil pulling or oil swishing is a traditional folk remedy that involves swishing oil in the mouth. It is mentioned in the Ayurvedic text Charaka Samhita, where it is called Kavala Gandoosha or Kavala Graha. Ayurvedic literature describes oil pulling as capable of both improving oral health and treating systemic diseases such as diabetes mellitus or asthma"

How to?
Before breakfast take a teaspoon of coconut oil and swish around in your mouth for 20 minutes. Spit out (not in the sink as it clogs up the pipes!). After breakfast brush your teeth as normal.

Benefits?
Your mouth and teeth will feel so clean and you will get rid of lots of disgusting bacteria and it's been known to help your skin, scalp and hair.

Hur?
Direkt när du vaknat, innan du äter eller dricker något ta en tesked me kokosnötolja och swisha runt i munnen i 20 minuter. Spotta ut (inte i vasken!) och efter du ätit frukost borsta dina tänder som vanligt.
  
Fördelar?
Din mun och dina tänder kommer kännas väldigt rena. Du blir av med alla äckliga bakterier och det är bra för hud, hår, hårbotten. 

Have you tried oil pulling? Har du provat oil pulling?

    1. You should. I wasn't to sure when I first read about it but it does make your teeth feel so clean and I also think they look whiter :) My boyfriend likes the fact that I have to be silent for 20 mins in the morning as well.. ha ha
