Oil pulling is also called oil pulling. And since this action has a special term, it would be foolish to deny that the technique did not go “to the people”. Why else would she need a special name? By the way, it comes from Ayurveda. Time tested!

So, the essence of this beauty procedure is to rinse your mouth with oil for several minutes. Important: this is not a replacement for regular cleaning, but an addition. But what!

How it works

In the practice of such rinses, the ability of oil to attract and dissolve similar, that is, oil, is used. This explains the cleansing effect. Hydrophilic oil works approximately the same way, with which we wash off tonal foundations and sunscreens.

And one more plus: the oil is liquid. So, it can penetrate into hard-to-reach areas: for example, between the teeth.

In Ayurveda, it is believed that oils also “wash out” toxins from the gums and interdental space, but this point of view has no scientific confirmation now. Most doctors are convinced that our internal organs can cope with detox.

So let’s focus on the fact that the oil will help with additional cleaning of the teeth — everything is quite logical here.

And what are the risks?

In principle, this procedure has no special contraindications: the main thing is not to swallow the oil.

Oil rinsing is also prohibited for those who have amalgam fillings. They contain mercury, which the oil washes out perfectly. And it can cause poisoning!

Which oil to choose for rinsing your mouth

Actually, anyone will do. So if you are interested in just trying the technique, then start with unrefined sunflower or olive oil. And only then, if you get involved, it makes sense to buy more expensive options: coconut, black cumin, linseed or sesame.
