The mouth is one of the dirtiest places on the human body. It harbors toxins, bacteria and other microbes left over from the foods we eat, and air we breathe in (when we breathe through our mouths).
Oil Pulling is a great way to remove the bacteria, toxins, healing bloody gums, and treating gum disease. The process is really very easy. These are the ingredients you need:
1 Tablespoon (15 ML) of coconut oil, grape seed oil, olive oil, OR any high quality oil
3-6 drops of essential oil (oil suggestions at the end of the article)
Mix the oils together then slowly swish around in your mouth for 15-20 minutes without swallowing (remember, we’re trying to get rid of the toxins, not swallow them). Spit the oil out the oil. If using virgin coconut oil (the kind that is solid at room temperature), dispose of it in the trash so your sinks’ drains do not get clogged.
Oil Pulling is best done before breakfast and may be done before each meal on an empty stomach.
Oil Pulling has been around for a long time. Dr. F. Karach, MD introduced this treatment in modern times and found that this will result in improvement or complete healing of these health concerns: migraine headaches, bronchitis, diseased teeth, arterio thrombosis, chronic blood disorders such as leukemia, arthritis and related illnesses, neuro-physiological paralysis, eczema, gastroenteritis, peritonitis, heart disease, kidney disease, meningitis, and woman’s hormonal disorders are completely eliminated from the organism.
Dr. Karach also saw remarkable recoveries with terminal diseases such as cancer, aids and chronic infections.
One reason why Oil Pulling has such profound results is that toxins, bacteria, viruses and unwanted fungi are removed. (This process doesn’t kill beneficial organisms because the oils are selective.)
Another reason is that emerging studies show that gum disease are connected to other health problems including diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.
Diabetics have a slower healing rate, which causes more problems with gum disease. In return, gum disease may cause blood sugar irregularities. The problem is cyclical, unless treated.
Heart disease and stroke is connected to gum disease, according to recent research, because oral bacteria and attach to arterial plaque. Arterial plaque is made up of many materials including cellular waste, calcium, fibrin, fat, and cholesterol.
Which Oils Work Best for Oil Pulling?
ON GUARD essential oil has been the subject of medical studies. One study shows that On Guard attenuates the H1N1 influenza virus. On Guard also strengthens the immune system, improves gum and mouth health, teeth problems, and numbs painful areas in the throat and mouth.
I recently heard an endodontist speak. He is using On Guard in his practice and encourages his patients to Oil Pull every day after a procedure. Their healing time was shortened by several days. On Guard also stopped the bleeding both during and after the procedures. This was an excellent breakthrough because he was able to see without the blood getting in the way or deadening the tissue around the surgery site.
OREGANO: This is an cleansing, purifying, anti-parasitic, antiseptic powerhouse that also boosts the immune system. A word of caution, a little of this oil goes a LONG way. Try using just one drop or less the first time because it really is powerful!
CLOVE: Clove is soothing, cleansing, purifying, powerful anti-septic, supports cellular health, antioxidant, and an immune stimulant. This one is also very powerful. Try just one drop or two of clove the first time to see how you like it.
My mom’s dentist told her to use this to numb her tooth when she was having a multi-day procedure.

So far, we know that Frankincense supports cellular health, protects against abnormal cellular growth, expectorant, immune stimulant, sedative, soothing, and more. There are bunch of studies involving Frankincense (scientifically known as genus Boswellia).
