2. Oil (sesame oil or virgin coconut oil)
Oil pulling is a technique employed for gargling instead of cooking. Sesame oil or virgin coconut oil is rinsed around inside the mouth and afterward spat out after fifteen minutes. As the substance is energetically pulled back and forth in the mouth, the nutrients are absorbed by the mucous membranes.
Sesame oil is rich in vitamin A, omega 3 fatty acids, calcium, iron, Vitamin E and B; contrarily virgin oil has antibacterial properties that promote cavity free teeth and healthy gums. Any spittle that will be formed during gargle must be spat out.
