Introduction: Oil Pulling

Whitens Teeth and Gets Rid of Bad Bacteria!!!!!

Step 1: Pick an Oil

Use a vegetable based oil but not Vegetable Oil. I know ow it sound sound weird but Veggie oil sucks!!! it's full of toxins and causes many health problems. veggie oil might do the exact opposite of t he intended goal. P.S. I use coconut oil cuz it is like liquid gold as a medicine but not as expensive. Also sunflower oil is also a good one.

Step 2: One to Two Tsp

Get about one or two tsp o oil. I just guesstimate with a spoon. More does not mean a Bette r job it's just a preference. I tried two at first but decided on just one in the end.

Step 3: SWISH!!!!!

put ur oil in you mouth and SWISH for 20 minutes no more no less. if u do it less time ok u won't get all the bacteria, if u do it more time, you will absorb the bacteria back into your mouth.

Step 4: Spit

Spit and rinse with warm water

Step 5: Brush Ur Teeth!

do I have to explain further

Step 6: Smile and Repeat Tomorrow

it will that a little while but it works. the best time to do this is first thin in the morning before you eat or Drink anything.

    Is there any scientific evidence to support this method?

    yes there was a doctor who did an experiment in the 1990's for this discovery, so I encourage you to look it up. in some hospitals it is prescribed as a medicine. that's about all I know about it but FYI got my source form the site Wellness Mama. I love her and I have have tried a lot of her recipes so I trust the source.But still, I encourage you to look into it. If anything it won't hurt to do it because coconut oil is like a magic drug.

    I think the burden of proof required on this site is a little bit higher than 'I read it on the internet.'

    20mins to clean your teeth? Seems a awfully long time

    Yes 20 minutes is a long time but it makes your mouth feels so much better and your teeth come out really really smooth. I like doing it I do it everyday. But yeah I do it everyday and I do it in the morning or if I don't eat a lot for lunch I'll do it in the afternoon if I skip the morning.

    20 minutes a day is an awfully long time. Do you do this every day? Congratulations on your first Instructable!

    I had just started this method but yes you're supposed to do it everyday. But you can go a day or two without doing it, it won't kill you lol.
