So you’ve come across this post and now you want to get down the bottom line, the end result, the answer RIGHT?  I love to learn about how things were done “back in the day” so I research just about everything that comes to my mind.  Some topics I research for days or weeks and some are lifelong quests while other topics I research until I’ve learned enough information to make an informed decision about whether I should steer clear or welcome it into my life.

That brings me to my topic that I want to share about today which is oil pulling.  This is one of those topics that I researched well over a year ago and tried it but only once, the result being that I “couldn’t hang”, so that was that, I never got to answer the question “If all these people are posting and making videos, with pictures and visuals in some cases, to prove that it works, then how will I know until I try it for myself.”  So I began researching again and decided to give it another try but with different oil and well I liked it LOL I really really like it!

Oil pulling as defined in the Merriam Webster dictionary “Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic remedy for oral health and detoxification. It involves the use of pure oils as agents for pulling harmful bacteria, fungus, and other organisms out of the mouth, teeth, gums and even throat.”

That definition sounds fine but is a bit scientific and doesn’t really help because it doesn’t explain what I will see or feel as a result.  Here are some of claims of others based on what I’ve read and watched.

  • Whiter teeth
  • Stronger, tighter gums that are more pink than “normal”
  • Fresh breath longer
  • Cavities heal!!!
  • Sensitivity lessens or goes away completely
  • Gum problems resolved
  • Stops or lessens toothaches
  • and the list goes on

Although what I eat at this point in my life is good quality, GMO free, natural and organic foods, I didn’t always eat this way; So the fact that I grew up in a heavily fluoridated city, was/am very a very picky eater, etc. my teeth have NEVER been in what you would call “good condition”.  So I am on a mission to find the best herbal teas, fruit and veggies that will give me more vitamins and minerals than what I am use to getting, so that they will be strong and maybe even regrow some cavities. Let’s face it, even if we buy the best that we can buy, we still are not eating the very best until and unless WE GROW IT OURSELVES and share/trade with friends and family.  If you know me, you know that I am passionate about us taking care of ourselves and each other the best we know how too and sharing that knowledge.  So here I am sharing with you.

I challenged myself to try oil pulling for 7 days and notate the results (just for myself) but it’s only mid day 2 and I am just amazed. So I figured I’d post about it and ask if you’d like to join me on my journey to find the truth?  The only way to know the truth is by challenging yourself and seeing/feeling the results yourself.  If you want to join me feel free to comment below or find me on facebook @MyCoCreations.  I will update this post on June 8, 2014 with my feedback which will likely be via video.

First let me say that I’ve read/heard to use anywhere from 1 tsp to 1 tbl of oil.

  • I use 1 tsp of organic extra virgin coconut oil and I brush my teeth with a tooth powder blend that I am working on for but I can assure you it does NOT have flouride, SLS, vegetable glycerin or any of the “PLEASE DON’T PUT THAT IN YOUR BODY” list.
    • Since it’s so hot here, my coconut oil is usually at the liquid stage but if yours is not it may be a bit more difficult due to the consistency at first but it will melt quickly.  If you can’t do it then warm it up a bit by running the glass bottle under warm water.
    • If you don’t like the taste of coconut then use organic coconut oil (not extra virgin) or go with Sunflower and/or Sesame seed (very thick, and flavorful)
    • Feel free to alternate between all of the oils but many say sesame is the best
  • I put 1 tsp is my mouth first thing in the morning before brushing and swish back and forth for 20 minutes it will be a milky white color and will change from the original consistency
  • After the 20 minutes, spit in the toilet (oil in the sink is BAD TRUST ME!!)
  • Brush your teeth with your good toothpaste and if you don’t have one just use aluminum free baking soda
  • Rinse real good to remove the oil that now contains the toxins it absorbed
  • WALA feel the clean, smooth feeling and enjoy those moisturized lips ๐Ÿ™‚

Like I said it’s only day 2 and I feel a difference already!  Looking forward to hearing your feedback ๐Ÿ™‚ join me on the facebook event page for this challenge
