natural and safe body care products, coconut oil for oil pulling.
Two of my sisters Eliza and Grace are very health conscious. They make their own cold pressed virgin coconut oil. They say the end product is very good. They gave me some of their hard work oil. During the weekends, when I am at home, I smear a little oil instead of putting on lipsticks. It soothes my lips.
Eliza even grow her own coconuts.
They taught me to use the oil for oil pulling. On an empty stomach, you swish one table spoon of oil in your mouth for twenty minutes. Spit out the oil in a bag before throwing out. Do not spit it in the sink, the oil must solidify and block your sink.
Oil pulling, a time-honored Ayurvedic technique, works wonders for deep pockets in the gums that harbor bacteria and inflammation-causing plaque. Used for years by those who have embraced an Ayurvedic healing
According to Dr. Bruce Fife in his book Oil Pulling Therapy, “When you put oil in your mouth, the fatty membranes of the microorganisms are attracted to it. As you swish the oil around your teeth and gums, microbes are picked up as though they are being drawn to a powerful magnet. Bacteria hiding under crevices in the gums and in pores and tubules within the teeth are sucked out of their hiding places and held firmly in the solution. The longer you push and pull the oil through your mouth, the more microbes are pulled free. After twenty minutes, the solution is filled with bacteria, viruses, and other organisms.”
Another advantage is when you slosh the oil in your mouth, you exercise your mouth muscles.
