Oil Pulling-An easy tip for better oral hygiene
Ever heard of Oil Pulling? Do you have cavities? What happens when you leave that bacteria in your mouth? It grows and creates more expensive dental work down the road. If your mouth is less than healthy, that bacteria travels to your gut and can grown there as well, disturbing our gut microbiome.
An easy at home remedy is oil pulling. Most of us have coconut oil in our cupboards, so pull it out, put some in a small jar and put it in your bathroom! You use 1 TBSP and swish it around for as long as you can up to 10 minutes. Spit it out and rinse. Pretty dang simple!
Since that coconut oil is in your bathroom now, you can use it as lotion. You can use it to take off your eye makeup. You can use it on burns (curling iron or sunburns). You can use it for massage oil. You can take it when you get a pedicure and have your technician use that instead of their chemically laden lotions. Oh the Possibilities!!
