coconut2I know that coconut oil is good for you. My daughters go to Jamaica once a year and they have become coconut oil disciples. They use it for everything from cooking to hair preparation. I recently came across a new use for this versatile product that I am going to try for myself. It is called “oil pulling.”

Oil pulling is simply the process of swishing a tablespoon of organic, cold pressed and extra virgin oil in your mouth for a whole 20 minutes. You can use any kind of oil but coconut or sesame are reportedly the best. The practice of oil pulling is said to remove toxins from your body as well as aiding in your general well being. It aids in oral hygiene, clears skin problems, relieves sinus pressure, aids the lymphatic system, decreases body and organ toxicity, regulates menstrual cycles, alleviates allergies, relieves migraines/headaches, reduces insomnia, improves vision, corrects hormonal imbalance and many other health benefits.
