Oil attracts oil. Water-based detergents can break down oil, but oil is what pulls oil the strongest.
So by swishing oil, like coconut oil, between your teeth and around your mouth, toxins get pulled into that coconut oil and when you spit it out they leave your body.
This is the idea behind oil pulling.
Here is some information on how to do it if you want to try:
One tip for you is to spit your swished coconut oil in the garbage rather than down your sink. Coconut oil turns solid at the temperatures lower than 76°. This can clog your bathroom or kitchen pipes.
Have you tried oil pulling? Do you believe in it’s reported benefits? Or is this a bunch of Doohickey?
