Default Oil Pulling Anyone???

I bought organic coconut oil, for oil pulling. Has anyone tried this? I'm going to try it tonight. I have read that morning is better, but that would mean getting up a bit earlier to have time to drink coffee and do the oil pulling. And, frankly I'm to lazy to get up any earlier and to addicted to coffee to cut that short.

I tried it today for the first time. I only lasted ten minutes and I used to much and gagged myself. I had never heard of it until my daughter send me a link to a blog about it. I'm going to try to do it everyday.

this was very common in my home country as a child, but I don't think we did it. 20minutes is way too long for me to keep my mouth shut....lol

I do oil pulling with organic coconut oil. I use a tablespoon full and swish while I take a shower for 20 minutes. Don't swallow or spit it down the drain. Just spit it out in the trash or napkin when finished.

This is the one I prefer:




I also use their coconut butter in my tea.

I do exactly what Michael does. Twenty minutes in the shower. The first time I did it, I wasn't sure if I could hack 'chewing' up the coconut oil to soften it, but it's not that bad at all. Just don't use too much.

Yep, I do it sometimes. Haven't since I ran out of coconut oil and haven't gotten more. But 1 TB, swish for 20 minutes, spit into trash. I prefer in the morning but like my sleep so often end up doing it in the evening. Have knocked out a few colds and brewing illnesses by doing it even just once. And when I was in the habit of it a few times a week for awhile, my teeth were DEFINITELY less sensitive and always had that "fresh from the dentist" feel!!

I tired it 3x. How do you not swallow any of it? I have ended up each time swallowing a bit. The longest I have done it is 5 minutes. I am going to keep on trying but, the whole swallowing thing is getting me.

maybe try just a bit less oil until you get the routine down (and the not swallowing..)

I tried too but honestly until there is more evidence that it is actually beneficial, I am never doing it again. (ew!)

I've been trying to convince myself to try it, but have yet to succeed. I saw someone doing it and just watching them I was gagging. I gag when I use mouthwash or brush my back teeth. I don't think I'll ever be able too.

With oil pulling we are talking 1/2 an hour for me.

I floss my teeth several times, brush my teeth (5 min), then oil pull.

In the morning its only about a 10 min ordeal-floss, brush, floss, rinse with mouthwash for seveal minutes.

I'm a big gagger-couldn't even take birth controll pills (did the depro shot easier) and will usually try to ride a headache out so I don't have to take pills. Don't gag at all oil pulling.

I will try a smaller amount. The taste/texture doesn't bother me much.

I want to start! My teeth and gums are horrible! I always have cavities since I was a kid and I have pretty good oral habits! I thought oil pulling might help!
