Tsi-La: What is Oil Pulling?

Oil pulling is an Ayurvedic detox method that you may want to try as an alternative to mouthwash.

In a small bowl, simply combine:

1 drop of Tea Tree Oil with
1  tablespoon of Coconut Oil.

Mix well

Place the mixture in your mouth and swish it around as you would a mouthwash for 10 minutes.

The benefits? Tea tree essential oil is known for its antibacterial properties and for improving the gums.  Coconut oil is also excellent for your gums due to its anti fungal and anti bacterial properties.

Give it a try and tell me what you think!



PS -  Be sure to discard the oil into your trash so you do not clog your drain!
