The only oil I enjoy pulling with is coconut oil - I love that stuff! The first time I pulled with sesame oil I was gagging so badly I had to spit it out. It's not near as bad anymore, and it gets better each time.

and just the thought of holding something in my mouth for 15 min like this.....
i'm trying not to watch the clock.

What the heck is oil pulling?

swishing coconut oil or sunflower oil or seasame oil around for 15 to 20 min. it's supposed to pull toxins from our body and help with curing diseases and pains and whitening teeth, etc. I know it sounds like a religious thing right?
I did a search on this site and found a lot of the peeps do it and have had different good results. So I decided to start trying it today. :) do a search, it helped me shed more light on it.

I so agree! I tried OP with coconut oil and lasted about 2 minutes, so your much better than me!
I looked at the clock and was like NO WAY! I was gagging the entire time.

I wonder if it's normal to feel naseous 2 hours after doing it....

When I first started op'ing a little over a month ago I was a serious clock watcher! I started with sunflower oil - UGH!!! :eek: I got used to it though & kept it up to the point that it is now just part of my daily hygene routine. As of yesterday I started using cocnut oil & find op'ing far more pleasant. In any case, getting used to the feel of a mouthful of oil did make me gag at first; that combined with the taste of sunflower oil took me a couple of weeks to get past.
We'll see what difference I find in coconut oil vs. sunflower oil. I got great results with the sunflower oil, but taste-wise I like the coconut better.... :D

Let's hear all the great things that "oil pulling" has done for you:D
I want reports okay:)
With me i wake up everymorning with no more toxic headaches and my hair is really growing.
My hair looks like i've been putting hair dye on my entire head but just a little on a old toothbrush around the edges.
My teeth are so white and my gum tissue is growing back at the bottom and they are so strong, i can eat anything i please:)
If i miss a day oil pulling i'm sad all the day.
So come on, i want your report:)

I tried coconut oil yesterday morning. I lasted about 5 minutes. It was frothy white, so I guess it worked. But it was very difficult to do and I didn't think I could last longer.
I forgot to do it this morning, but I'm going to put a note on the bathroom mirror to remind me tomorrow.

After awhile your mouth gets full and it's hard to keep it inside:)
I try not to watch anything funny on the tv while doing my oil pulling.
