For those who don’t know what oil pulling is, it is basically a method of cleaning your teeth using coconut oil.
To do it, you just need coconut oil. You put about a spoonful of heated (but not too hot) coconut oil in your mouth and swish it around for 10-15 minutes.
I heard this helps clean your teeth and possibly even whiten, so I gave it a shot!
Well, when I first started out, I just put plain, solid coconut oil in my mouth. Yup…I didn’t do the heating step for some reason. I tried swishing it around but the texture felt so weird in my mouth that I spit it out because I HATED it. It felt so weird having these like chunks just swishing around…it was disgusting.
So, then, I finally decided to heat the oil. I put it in my mouth and started swishing. It felt kind of weird, but not as bad as before. I think I was expecting it to feel like water swishing around. The oil is obviously a little more thick so it didn’t feel that way. So, I did this for 10-15 minutes as advised then spit out the oil. Then, I brushed my teeth and cleaned off any excess oil on my mouth.
Overall, I thought my teeth felt really clean. They felt so much more smooth. I really like how they feel after doing this. I wouldn’t say this is my favorite thing to do, but it definitely helps make my teeth feel cleaner.
I didn’t notice that it made my teeth whiter. My teeth seemed to be the same color as before.
So, overall, I liked the results of oil pulling, but it wasn’t my favorite feeling while doing this. I might not do it again!
Well, that’s all
