Oil pulling has been used for thousands of years as a remedy where you simply have to swish oil around your mouth for 5 to 20 minutes. This method helps reduce the number of harmful bacteria in your mouth and reduce the buildup of plaque.

Oil pulling is a great way to remove hard to reach bacteria that may be building in your mouth. The oil adheres to the bacteria and plaque and make it easy for you to spit it out of your mouth.
