Pocket Guide to: Oil Pulling

This is a quick little pocket guide to introduce you to a method known as pulling. I just learned about this method myself, and I am excited to share it with you. If you have not heard of pulling, you have been missing out. The art of pulling has been around for centuries and can give you amazing results.

What is oil pulling?

Oil pulling is used for detoxification and rejuvenation purposes. The method of ‘pulling’ oil enables toxins, bacteria and parasites to be removed from the lymphatic system and the mouth. Oil pulling can correct imbalances in the body and then symptoms disappear.

What oil pulling can do for you:

Oil pulling removes congestion and mucus from your throat; it will also loosen up your sinuses. Overtime it can rev up your metabolism, clear up your skin and give you an overall healthy glow. Oil pulling is also known for strengthening and whitening teeth.

How to do oil pulling:

  1. Select a high quality, unrefined oil such as coconut oil, sesame oil or sunflower oil.
  2. Swish, swirl and pull one tablespoon of oil in your mouth. Pretend you are using mouthwash, no gargling.
  3. If you’re just starting pulling try it for five minutes. Once you can do five minutes, increase your time. For best results aim for twenty minutes.
  4. Spit it out. Use the garbage can or toilet.
  5. Rinse your mouth with warm water.
  6. Brush your teeth with toothpaste.
  7. Drink plenty of water.


  • For best results pull first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach.
  • If the oil is still yellow and oily, you did not pull long enough; keep pulling. The oil must become a milky substance.


Do not swallow the oil. The oil you have pulled is now toxic.

Stay tuned:
