Many of you will have heard of the benefits of oil pulling and these include diminished tooth decay, bad breath and bleeding gums, along with brighter, whiter teeth.
Yet what stops us doing what we believe to be good for us is simply time constraints. Truth is, there are many misconceptions surrounding Ayurveda and a 20 minute daily ritual of oil pulling, is one of them. In fact, all you need it 2-10 minutes daily - swish for 30 seconds, hold for 30 seconds and repeat.
Centuries ago, in a time free of Netflix and the 9-5, you may have rather enjoyed a 20 minutes spend on oral hygiene, followed by an hours massage, a bit of yoga and meditation, but that time has long passed. Try just 2 minutes with either coconut or sesame oil daily and you’ll notice remarkable results within weeks. A focus on wellbeing is a good thing, but don’t let the pursuit of perfection give rise to pressure or feeling ‘less-than. It’s about doing what you can and even a few small changes, adapted to suit your lifestyle is the path to true wellbeing. So get ready to swish, stop and just be.
