Over the last few months I’ve had a couple of opportunities to let my inner perfectionist flare up…over something random. Have you ever heard of oil pulling? Basically you put a tablespoon of coconut oil in your mouth and swish it around for 20 minutes.
I read about the benefits of doing it and jumped right in a while ago. The first time felt weird. But by the second or third time I was hooked. Six months later at my usual dental check-up, my regular hygienist asked what I was doing different because my gums were even healthier. That feedback solidified my commitment to it. Plus, it’s a natural teeth whitener!
