What oil should I buy, and do I just rub it on my scar?
I heard a lot of people on this web site talking about oil pulling and how it really works and I have this scar from when I accidentally burnt myself with a curling iron.
Also, I'm breaking out soo much from eating raw, and heard that putting coconut oil on my face will clear it up but it's hard to believe rubbing oil on my face will clear acne, it just sounds like it will clog pores and create more breakouts?:confused:

Lilly - Oil pulling is essentially swishing Sesame oil or Sunflower oil in your mouth to cleanse/pull toxins from your body. This is the SIMPLE definition. Do more research before attempting it!
There are a few threads here if you do a search, or you can check out my latest article (link in my signature to Green Woman's COLUMN) because I explain it in depth there!
Also, you're not really breaking out "from Raw"... you're probably breaking out from DETOX, which is also a cleansing of toxins from your body! So, Raw is cleaning you out, and since your skin is your largest organ, that's where many of the toxins will want to exit. ;)
Persist with Raw, and definitely read Alissa's book to help you through the Detox (and everything else)!
