Oil Pulling with Coconut Oil

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I recently received a bottle of Skinny & Co. Raw Coconut Oil to sample. Cool! I’ve used coconut oil before to cleanse and moisturize my skin, so this was not a new-to-me item. But when I checked out their website I found they were doing other things with it. Like oil pulling.

Safe to say, coconut oil is a popular ingredient right now. Used in cooking, beauty, even wellness, it is a versatile and healthy oil. But oil pulling is new to me. While I’ve used it in the past to cleanse and moisturize my skin, and have even done a little cooking with it, oil pulling has never been an area of interest.

What the heck is oil pulling?

The practice of oil pulling, done first thing in the morning, is said to boost the immune system and promote oral health. You simply place a small amount of coconut oil in your mouth and swish. Easy, right? And then keep swishing for another 5-20 minutes. That is a lot of swishing. (Skinny & Co. offers more in depth instructions on the practice.)

Whiter teeth being one of the touted benefits of oil pulling, I decided to give it a go. It wasn’t as icky as it sounds, but not something I’d look forward to doing each morning. My teeth were not noticeably whiter, but that probably takes consistent use.

Ok, so oil pulling may not be my thang. Still, this oil is perfect for the skin (makes a super great lip balm!) and in foods. I ran across this awesome looking granola recipe on my Monday Pinterest crawl that is a fall must-make.

Skinny & Co. does not mess around. To the brothers who started this business, coconut is more than just a product. It’s a movement. A backpacking expedition that began as an adventure, led Luke and Matt Geddie to the wealth of healthy foods native to Vietnam. They made it their mission to share the pure, raw coconut oil from the Ben Tre jungles to America. A partnership that brings a healthful product to local businesses here in the US while benefiting the people of Vietnam.

      oil pulling is AWESOME. you can even do things like help resolve some dental abscesses using this method. it’s absolutely wonderful, and coconut oil is probably the best oil to use for this purpose (sesame oil is also pretty good). just keep the resulting white, frothy mess you create out of your stomach and DON’T swallow it – it will be filled with all manner of nasty stuff that you do not want to put back in your body. also, be sure to do it on an empty stomach, since the blood will be more available for detoxing as it won’t be pooled around the digestive tract.

      thanx for telling people about this excellent health practice!
