I am not sure about you, but I have seen "oil pulling" all over the internet lately.  At first, I wasn't so sure about it, but when I was contacted about working in a review for Pulling Oil from Gurunanda, I thought I would give it a try. 
To be honest, I thought it was going to be pretty easy. Just put a bit in my mouth, swish for a bit, spit, brush my teeth and be done with it.  Well, it isn't that easy!  Yes, that is what you do, but it is hard to swish all that oil around in your mouth.  The directions say to start with just swishing the oil for two to three minutes, working your way up to 15 minutes.  I thought the 15 minutes would be so easy, but when it was time to try it out, it was actually quite a task!  I haven't done it every day, as I should... but I have used it several times now.  I do hope to continue adding on my time, but I just have not been able to do so yet.  Wish me luck!!!

How Oil Pulling Works

When Dosha balanced pure oil is swished in the mouth, oil soluble toxins dumped in saliva adhere to the oil. According to  Kulreet Chaudhary, MD a prominent neurologist and  Ayurveda expert “the body has several mechanisms that allow it to ‘dump’ toxic particles into the salivary glands. Following  Ayurvedic tradition, oil pulling helps to increase the secretion of saliva and trap the toxins within the oil particles. With oil pulling,  the salivary glands of the mouth function as a detoxifying organ”.
The act of swishing the oil pulls the oil soluble toxins and harmful microbes residing in the mouth from the fat cells. When practiced regularly, oil pulling can reduce inflammation. That is because as the level of toxins in the toxic fat decreases, the body withdraws water around them and reduce inflammation. Consequently, the PURE system that has become ineffective can finally function effectively again . The acts of exercising, eating right, drinking water and breathing facilitate weight loss and promote better health. As per customer reviews on, oil pulling can help improve oral and systemic health, which can help alleviate tooth decay, bad breath, headaches, migraines, diabetes, asthma and acne, as well as whiten teeth. Its been established that healthy teeth lead to a healthy heart and overall good health.

GuruNanda Pulling Oil

GuruNanda Pulling Oil is the first commercialized pulling oil that incorporates oils with healing properties related to Ayurveda’s five major elements. GuruNanda Pulling Oil contains a proprietary ratio of 100% organic sunflower, coconut, peppermint and sunflower oils. When combined, these oils pull toxins and harmful bacteria from the body’s salivary glands. Although all oils will work to some degree, GuruNanda thoroughly researched all the Vedic knowledge available to create a perfect product that works more effectively than other stand-alone oils used for pulling, such as coconut or sesame oil. GuruNanda Pulling Oil possesses a correctly balanced viscous body that produces mild yet effective results when combined with a gentle swishing force. The 3 oils (sesame, sunflower and coconut) balance the 3 doshas (humors) and the peppermint oil acts as a catalyst (agni).

  1. I think I've heard of oil pulling, but I never knew what it was. Thanks for writing about this!

  2. I'm not familiar with it, but I'd love to try it out. It sounds like something I'd get into.

  3. I tried it once... just with olive oil though. It is harder than it sounds!
