Oil Pulling

Here is the what, the who, the how and the ugly of oil pulling.


Oil pulling is a traditional remedy that involves swishing oil in the mouth. Coconut oil is most commonly used for this application.


Ayurvedic literature describes oil pulling as capable of both improving oral health and treating systemic diseases such as diabetes mellitus or asthma.

The How:

Oil pulling is usually recommended to be done first thing in the morning.

Rinse your mouth with approximately one tablespoon of oil for 15–20 minutes (on an empty stomach) before eating and/or drinking. Spit out the coconut oil followed by rinsing the mouth with (sea salt) salt water and then brushing the teeth in a normal morning routine. (Wash your teeth, gums, tongue (softly) and palate thoroughly)

The Ugly:

Studies have suggested that it may reduce oral plaque, halitosis, and gingivitis when included in a regular oral healthcare program.
