Oil Pulling


If you're a fan of oral hygiene then this one is for you. Oil Pulling is super simple. You take a teaspoon of coconut or olive oil and swish is around your mouth for around 10 minutes. Seams like a long time right? Do it in the morning while you are getting dressed, brushing your hair, doing your make up or whatever is it you do before you set off on your day. Once you've swished it around long enough spit out the oil and brush with a spare brush before brushing with toothpaste. You won't regret adding this simple trick to your daily routine!
