The Pull of Oil Pulling

Recently, I have returned to the practice of oil pulling. Like so many practices which are good for us, they are so often subject to phases and whims. (Meditation and Pilates I shall not abandon you!).

The ayurvedic practice of oil-pulling is a powerful yet natural way to brighten teeth whilst tackling nasty oral bacteria.

The idea is to swill sesame or coconut oil around the mouth for up to twenty minutes thus whitening teeth and balancing oral flora which clings to the fat molecules before being expelled. (Not in the sink people!).

Another added benefit is twenty minutes of internal and external silence to reflect, plan or indeed simply just be. x
