Oil pulling or “gundusha” or “kavala”, is an ancient Ayurvedic dental technique which cleanses the body of toxins and supports oral and overall health.

This is an extremely effective way of cleansing the body from toxins and improving oral and overall health. It is especially beneficial for detoxifying the teeth and gums and whitening of your teeth at the same time.

Oil pulling is highly effective at reducing tooth cavities and at eradicating bad breath. Removing the Streptococcus mutant bacteria (an important player in tooth decay) as well as other microorganisms, oil pulling is great for oral health. It also helps with plaque-induced gingivitis.

The increasing interest surrounding oil pulling in the lay population has correspondingly increased scientific scrutinization of the practice. One study showed that oil pulling with sesame oil can boost overall oral health by significantly reducing Streptococcus mutans, a microbe that contributes to tooth decay. Some scientists believe the lipids in the oil reduce the adhesion of bacteria to the teeth and gums, possibly explaining its bacteria-diminishing effects.

In order to perform oil pulling all you should do is to swish unrefined, high quality oil by your choice in your mouth. This method is quite similar to the way you use a mouthwash. Many people recommend using coconut oil.

Just put a couple teaspoons of vegetable oil (coconut, sesame, olive oil) in your mouth and swish it for 20 minutes. Spit it out and wash the mouth with water. Do the procedure every morning and on an empty stomach, or in the evening before going to bed, in order to get the best results.

It is recommended that you build up to that 20 minutes. Start with a goal of 5 minutes the first few times you oil pull and slowly add more time until you reach the 20 minutes. We have provided a routine below that will help get you to the 20 minutes gradually.
