Have you tried Oil Pulling?

Have you tried Oil Pulling?


It seems like everyone is trying it. Instead of mouthwash people are using oil as a part of their daily oral care routine. It all started 5000 years ago with Ayurveda. Oils are highly revered in Ayurveda, as a matter of fact the Sanskrit word for oil, sneha, also means love. Sesame oil and sunflower oil are the oils primarly indicated in Ayurvedic texts due to their mineral profile that is especially great for the teeth.   Oil pulling is very simple, after brushing your teeth in the morning put about 1-2 tsp of oil in your mouth and hold it, lightly swishing if desired, for 20 min. When you are done don’t swallow as this oil is full of the “toxins” it is pulling from the oral cavities and salivary glands. Because of the cleansing nature of this practice many people are reaping other benefits besides healthier teeth.   Ojas Naturals has a product that is formulated specifically and consciously with Ayurvedic principles in mind. With a base of unrefined sesame oil and sunflower oil, there are other ingredients that take it above and beyond what you can accomplish with just a swish of oil from your kitchen. There is black cumin seed oil calendula to add extra support for the gums and essential oils for flavor with a dash of stevia to sweeten the deal. If you have never tried it , it seems like a trend that has swept the internet and has become a regular part of many people’s oral care routine.   If everyone is sticking to it, there must be something great about it. I think I may give it a try.
