Guided Steps To Oil Pulling:

Step 1: Provide yourself at least 20 minutes in the morning.
Step 2: After meditation or some form of peaceful intention in the morning, use 1 tablespoon of organic coconut oil and swish but do not swallow.
Step 3: Swish. Thus the term pulling: as you swish in the teeth you are actually pulling toxins from your teeth but also from the GI tract through the membranes in the tongue. You can do this in the shower.  As you swish, you set an intention for your body by mindfully using internal affirmations of releasing toxins harmoniously and gently for a period of 5-10 minutes.
Step 4: Expel it into a plastic bag.  If you are spitting it out in the sink basin, spray the basin with a non-chemical cleaner to break down the oil.
Step 5: Use a toothpaste that has Myr Xylitol and peppermint and coQ 10 with Zinc and brush your teeth. Click here for some examples on
