Our mouths are the home to billions of bacteria, and other micro-organisms as well as their toxins. Mouth is considered as the mirror of the general health of human body. Candida and Streptococcus are common residents in our mouths. It is these types of germs and their toxic waste products that cause gum disease and tooth decay and may contribute to many other health problems including inflammation, arthritis and heart disease.
Oil pulling is a traditional Ayurvedic medicine practiced in ancient India.
Our immune system is constantly fighting these troublemakers. If our immune system becomes overloaded or burdened by excessive stress, poor diet, environmental toxins, these toxins accumulate in both the mouth and lymph system. From there these toxins may spread throughout the body causing secondary infections and chronic inflammation which in return to lead to any number of health concerns.

How to use Oral Swish Oil
Oral Swish Oil is best used daily upon rising before breakfast and on an empty stomach. Use one teaspoonful of Oral Swish Oil in your mouth, swish it around until the volume of solution becomes too much when stimulated with saliva, then spit out. The oil is ‘pulled’ and forced in between all the teeth by swishing it all around the mouth. Avoid swallowing the oil solution as it is likely to be contaminated with oral toxins. The material you will spit out may be white, slimy and smelly at first. Sputum will become clearer and less viscous with repeated daily use.
