An expert weighs in on how to do it:


I have a habit of asking healthy, thriving seniors what their secret to longevity is.

I get a mixture of old wives’ tales as well as tried and true practices (drink lots of water daily, don’t drink alcohol, eat five veggies a day, don’t smoke). Occasionally I get an answer that piques my interest and leads me to do research and experimentation.

Oil Pulling was one of those interesting suggestions. I can say, after having done it for quite a while now…it really works. This is an ancient Ayurvedic practice used to detox the body with results like:

  • Whiter teeth
  • Healthy gums
  • Clear sinuses
  • Decrease in allergy symptoms, asthma & PMS symptoms
  • Increase in energy
  • Better sleep
  • Clearer skin
  • Regulated menstrual cycles

There are reports of other benefits due to the cleansing effect it has on the immune system.

The idea behind the practice is that, through the process of swishing, pulling the oil through the teeth and around the mouth, the toxins, bacteria and latent infections are pulled out and into the oil. We harbor an unbelievable amount of toxins in our mouth and because of that, our immune systems are kept quite busy in that region. When we eliminate that energy drain by oil pulling, our immune system can then focus on other things. Makes sense.

My husband and I began oil pulling using the traditional sesame oil. Heed my warning… if you use sesame oil, you probably won’t make this a regular practice. We both gagged our way through 5 minutes and decided the benefits couldn’t possibly outweigh the nastiness.

We then switched to coconut oil, and the experience is much more pleasant.

As a side note, coconut oil is just a wonderful oil to have on hand for a number of different uses: cooking, body moisturizer, hair conditioner. So, if oil pulling ends up not being your thing after investing in a tub of coconut oil, it will not go to waste. Also, coconut oil is solid at room temperature but will quickly liquify when it reaches body temperature.


How to:

Put approximately 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in your mouth and swish around your entire mouth, pulling through your teeth and around your tongue for 15-20 minutes.  The frequency is up to you, although people report experiencing the most notable benefits when performed daily.  Some do it up to three times a day while others shoot for once a week.  Best when done first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.

After the pulling is complete, be sure not to swallow the oil as it is full of bacteria.  Do not spit it out in the sink, but rather into your compost or trash—otherwise you’ll clog the pipes when the oil congeals. You should spit it out into the trash, and be sure to rinse your mouth out well with water and follow with a good brush.

That’s it. It’s cheap and easy enough that it’s certainly worth a try to see if it works for you.

Wishing you peace, joy & heath.

Oil pulling does not detoxify in the way that this article or the other state. Coconut oil can never detoxify as per Ayurveda. It is brimhana or building/anabolic.


Kavala is of four types:
Lubricating with oils and fats (snigda)– for Vata imbalance disorder. It is done by the use of oil processed with herbs of sweet, sour and salt tastes. Not cold and heavy coconut oil.
Palliative (shamana) for Pitta imbalance disorder. It is done by herbs of bitter, astringent and sweet tastes.
Cleansing / detoxing (shodana) – for Kapha imbalance disorder. It is with herbs of bitter, pungent, sour, salt tastes and possessing hot property. Not cold and heavy and sweet coconut oil.
Healing (ropana) – It is done with herbs of astringent and bitter taste.

Different substances are used in kavala in Ayurveda:
Fats – oil, ghee milk,
Honey with water
Fermented gruel
juice of meat / meat soup
urine of animals such as cow urine (yep)
dhanyamla – Sour fermented grain liquid

For daily use, oil pulling with sesame oil or meat soup
"Benefits of oil pulling with sesame oil, daily: Sesame oil gargling is beneficial for the strength of jaws, depth of voice, flabbiness of face, excellent gustatory sensation and good taste for food. One will never get dryness of throat, nor does his lips ever get cracked; his teeth will never develop caries and will be deep-rooted; he will not have any toothache nor will his teeth set on edge by sour intake; his teeth can chew even the hardest eatables" Reference: (Charaka Samhita Sutrasthana 5…. that is the main Ayurvedic text)

The proper use of the treatment depends upon what it is being used for (what of the above 4 is being done) and the person and their disease state.
The person should sit in a place devoid of breeze but in mild sunlight. At the right time of day as per the dosha.
It is never done when the sky is overcast.
His shoulders and neck should be massaged with the proper oil and then fomented depending upon the treatment and why it is being given.
After fomentation, the treatment of Kavala is commenced.
Keeping the face slightly lifted up, one should hold the liquid in their mouth till the mouth gets filled with Kapha (sputum / slimy liquid / mucus) and till the nose and eyes start secreting liquid. Not 20 minutes. Each individual will be different and this is the sign that it is done completely as this is what it is being used for.
Then the contents of the mouth are spitted out.

After this Dhumapaan or smoking of herbs is done. Not as per Western smoking.
Then tambula is chewed.

This is real Ayurveda.

The treatment will vary as per the person and what they are using it for.

There is no pulling toxins as written above going on except when it is used as shodana treatment, which what is written in this article above is not. At best what is written above can kind of be said to be a palliative treatment. But in even that coconut oil would never be used as it is opposite qualities as per Ayurveda.

It is used for neck, jaw, eyes, nose, throat, gum, teeth, sinus problems when used properly but can easily create the same when used improperly.

Most importantly, it is to never be used in cases when someone has aama (if you look at your tongue and it has a white film or plague it is signs of toxicity and lack of digestion), poisoning, fainting disease, alcoholism, depletion, TB, bleeding diseases, low clotting factor, inflammation of the eyes, constipation, and depletion of waste.

Don't believe the hype.

After reading this… about oil pulling with coconut oil I tried it myself and was impressed by the results. The main difference that I noticed was the whiter teeth, even my friends asked me what kind of treatment was I doing 🙂

anonymous Apr 5, 2014 6:19am

Way cool! Some extremely valid points! I appreciate
you penning this post and also the rest of the site is also very good.

anonymous Jan 17, 2014 2:17pm

That sounds like a great idea! I stop start my regiment as of today. But one thing I thought of. If coconut oil is solid at room temperature, would it not also be solid at room temperature in your plumbing? I would spit into a paper towel and throw it in the trash instead. Just a thought.

anonymous Jan 17, 2014 10:30am

How do you hold that in your mouth with all the saliva you produce for 15-20 minutes without swallowing some? It seems like it would be incredibly difficult not to spit or swallow some in that length of time.

anonymous Nov 21, 2013 12:09am

As the oil is full of toxins, you shouldn't spit it into the sink and thus spoil the water – rather spit the used oil into a paper towel and then throw it into the garbage.

anonymous Nov 13, 2013 2:42pm

Why would this be any more effective or beneficial that gargling and swishing with hydrogen peroxide?

anonymous Oct 24, 2013 7:54am

Cold-pressed unrefined Sesame oil is quite tasty (and recommended for this procedure). Reminds me of when I was still allowing myself to eat Halva…..yum! Oh, and I spit it into my garden.

anonymous Sep 18, 2013 9:10am

I've heard you should spit in the toilet or trash, since it will solidify again and may clog drains. 🙂

anonymous Jul 6, 2013 2:08am

Don't spit out the coconut oil in the sink, you'll clog the pipes whrn the oil congeals. You should spit it out into a paper cup and throw it away.

anonymous Jul 5, 2013 11:44pm

the word "detox" gets thrown around a lot these days. when people make extraneous claims like that, you know what happens in the united states? the FDA steps in and tries to control us for making false claims and statements that have not been approved by the FDA. the author of this article has no grounded accreditation to make these kind of claims, nor would she be considered as a peer reviewer for a scientist doing a clinical trial on oil pulling. i just recently saw a yoga teacher's recipe for a "detox" soup. it was vegetable soup. she was hardly specific about which vegetables to use, and didn't recommend herbs that actually support detoxification. you could eat it while you're detoxing, but not use it or prescribe it as a detoxificant. if you were a nutritional counselor or a registered dietitian you would learn rather quickly that you really should be careful making claims and statements–not because you're lying–but because when people hold you liable to your claims it can cause the legal system to tighten up on our liberty to use medicinal foods and herbs.

anonymous Jun 17, 2013 4:03pm

Oil pulling is a new hippie dippie thing within the yoga and spiritual and cleansing world. It originates from Ayurveda but what is being touted about it is completely blown out of proportion. Claims of liver detoxing to all sorts of ridiculous claims are being made. People are using all kinds of oils such as coconut oil for it as well. It is important to understand the deep knowledge behind this because it is from ayurvedaa and without the details your gonna create disease. Gandusha is the swishing of oil or water in your mouth until tears develop in the eyes. There are SIGNS and SYMPTOMS of doing it correctly and not that is highly disregarded by this article and others due to lack of any understanding of ayurveda and/or oil pulling. There is dietary conditions that NEED to be followed including eating a light diet as per ayurveda not western ideas of a light diet. To not follow these guidelines can result in disease or at minimum bad repercussions. In general, you NEED to oil and foment the face PRIOR to have proper effects and not cause a deeper imbalance. Oil pulling is only done with warm sesame oil or water (once again, just sesame oil) unless specifically directed by an Ayurvedic DOCTOR where they would then give you a medicated oil to use for certain reasons. There are four types of gandusha. Each for their specific purposes. But yet all of this knowledge is thrown to the ignorant wayside and harmful information is shared like this article. Using coconut oil will create problems with dental, bad breath, cavities, and a whole lot more due to the qualities that the coconut oil has. but do as you will after all it is your health your playing with.

Wouldn't suggest spitting oil in the sink…especially coconut. It could solidify in the pipes and cause clogging. Spitting in the toilet is a better idea. 🙂

anonymous Feb 6, 2013 11:41pm

before or after brushing?

anonymous Feb 6, 2013 8:09pm

20 minutes is what I do and have read. I do it in the morning when checking emails. Take your mind off it and it goes quickly. I put a paper towel to my lips to give some pressure to swish against. And I have towels ready for any slight spillage and a bowl to spit if needed. It really is very helpful.

anonymous Feb 6, 2013 7:29pm

Second time I've heard of this. I actually brush my teeth with a paste of coconut oil and baking soda.
15 minutes huh? I heard that before as well. Seriously? That's a long time. Won't you starting salivating and overflow? "Accidently" swallow due to all of that time?

anonymous Feb 6, 2013 7:24pm

I use coconut oil for almost everything… I love it! But, I only use sesame for oil pulling. It has certain qualities that coconut doesn't, specifically – it is a better detoxifier and also high in calcium so provides a calcium bath to your teeth and jaw bones. Lucky for me, the taste isn't an issue, but if you use raw rather than toasted oil it is lighter in taste.

Hi, I had a great experience with oil pulling as well. I agree, coconut oil is definitely more pleasant tasting for sure. I’ve read that it doesn’t matter much what type of oil you use, just that you swish for at least 10-15 min and then spit out…don’t swallow any of the oil.

anonymous Feb 23, 2012 8:12pm

I have been iintereste din this for awhile. i am curious if you had any effects when using the coconut oil which make a strong recommendation.

anonymous Feb 23, 2012 12:38pm

I also did not think to try coconut oil. I tried sesame with the same result as you and your husband….pretty awful. Excited to try again now!

anonymous Feb 23, 2012 11:33am

Ah, if only health were so simple! As a natural health practitioner I see this as a rather harmless thing, but get really tired of the "Do this ONE wacky thing (take this supplement, etc.) and ALL your problems will disappear!" Desperate people looking for a simplistic solution jump on the bandwagon without changing their diet, lifestyle, mental health habits, etc. and for a while it is the NEW FAD only to disappear into oblivion…. remember those bogus foot baths where the water turned colors whether there were feet in them or not? Remember ear candling?

    anonymous Feb 23, 2012 11:19am

    I agree with you here, In my years as a PT and nutritionist I see people jump in and out of diets and quick cures, if they think swilling pigs pee in their mouths would stop them feeling guilty about all the sugar that they continue to eat then they will do it. I do believe that oil swilling will remove some bacteria, but so does any kind of detox, so does breathing! Eat Well, Think even Weller, and LOVE your beautiful body. If oil swilling works of you… that too!

      anonymous Feb 6, 2013 2:22pm

      It's not a fad; it's comes from Ayurveda which is a system of medicine that is 5000 years old…you know, the sister health care system to yoga….

        anonymous Jun 17, 2013 4:04pm

        Jaqueline, And the way that it is being done has nothing to do with ayurveda… read below.

    anonymous Feb 6, 2013 8:06pm

    Um, I get what you are saying but you are jumping to a lot of conclusions that the people interested in this are not taking care of themselves in other ways. If they are on this website they probably are. This is not a cure all it is a beneficial practice many seem to benefit from. I have tried it and without my family knowing they have commented on my teeth being whiter. A wisdom tooth that was giving me some aches is not any longer. Don't throw out the baby with the bathwater.
    There are so many ways to take care of ourselves and most of them have been hidden and only toxic substances introduced into our lives.

Carrie Radcliffe tried this years ago with sunflower oil. always have coconut oil around for cooking, etc., so i tried it a few days ago and haven't stopped! thanks for the tip!

Maggie Kane I m definitely going to try this. Love coconut oil, but never thought to use it in this way. ♥

I've tried I didn't notice anything but you have to be consistent. I have heard people arthritis go away from it.

Will try it as I have no health or dental insurance and trying to take good care of my teeth and body.

anonymous Sep 16, 2011 11:54am

A scam, but a relatively harmless one. The only thing it will likely hurt is the size of your wallet. Specialty vegetable oils tend to be expensive.

    anonymous Sep 17, 2011 12:17pm

    Nice to see some criticism…strange it can be a scam if visibly whitens teeth according to so many folks who've tried it and comes from a 2,000+ year old tradition of testing and practice…I don't know either way. ~ W.

Michelle Christiana Bailey WOW! i'll have to try this, starting today!

Donna Runion Oil pulling is awesome, I will have to try it with coconut oil instead of sesame. The only thing in her article I disagree with is spitting it out into your sink, you will definitely clog your pipes. And most people have those pop up stoppers, you really don't want that nastiness accumulating there!

Judy Boyd Griffin Will have to try this one.

Joe Allegretti How about Snake Oil Pulling? Sorry… not buying it, but sure, it's cheap and can't hurt. Go ahead.

Jennifer Marranci I knew about doing this with olive oil, which I don't like the taste of. Coconut I could do

Nicole Wagner it's true I have been doing it for over a year now … whenever I have a cold and swish with it for 10 plus minutes it naturally brings out all that gunck that is causing my illness! I'll be better within days 🙂 Plus my teeth are naturally white with this stuff 🙂 And it's slimming aka model Miranda Kerr which I've also experienced. ps it's never clogged my sink 🙂

anonymous Sep 16, 2011 11:38am

Over the last 6 months or so, I tried pulling oil pretty regularly until I ran out of coconut oil, and then slacked off with an occasional mouthful of safflower oil. I just had a dental checkup and was pleasantly surprised — I have the very beginning stages of gum disease, and my dentist measures the pockets around my teeth and notes any bleeding. There was zero bleeding this time, and pockets in two major areas were reduced. I haven’t been doing anything else differently, so it seems likely the oil pulling was beneficial. (I’d love to see some controlled science experiments done on this!)

I’m going to get back into the habit of swishing every day or every other day just to see how my next dental visit goes.

anonymous Sep 16, 2011 10:42am

I tried it once and was so grossed out…would a smaller amt. of oil still work? I'm pretty vigilant w/ my Tom's of Maine & my floss, but thought this would be cool. A friend that is a big Weston A. Price foundation/Traditional Foods advocate recommended it & I wanted to like it. I love coconut oil for lots of other things, but 15 minutes of it in my mouth made me want to hurl.

    anonymous Feb 6, 2013 2:19pm

    I just started oil pulling myself, about a month ago. (I had heard about it before and was considering it; would you believe my holistic dentist recommended it to me!) I started with coconut oil (which I happily cook and bake and moisturize with) and I have to say that oil pulling with coconut oil also made me want to hurl. So I tried it with sesame oil; as soon as it was in my mouth I knew immediately that this was the oil for me. Give it a try!

anonymous Sep 16, 2011 6:44am

Wow. Interesting! I'm going to try it. PS. And now I'm really hungry 🙂

anonymous Sep 15, 2011 7:20pm

Good information! Coconut oil is phenomenal for so many reasons, and it has natural antibacterial properties, so it's a great choice here. See the book, The Coconut Oil Miracle, for lots of great info on this miracle of nature. One small editing comment: I believe that you meant to say that you get an answer that "piques" your interest rather than "peaks" it.

    anonymous Sep 15, 2011 7:30pm

    Thanks for pointing out the correction and in such a kind fashion. I noticed it right away and thought I was the only one.

anonymous Sep 15, 2011 5:54pm

You may suggest that people spit the used oil into the garbage since it can solidify and has the potential to clog the pipes in the sink.

anonymous Sep 15, 2011 4:57pm

I want to do this but I am hesitant. I read about the benefits years ago and decided to give it a try, but in the description I read it said that some people have reported dental work loosening and even falling out. I didn't think much of the warning and begin oil pulling for awhile. I don't know if it is a coincidence or not but a few months later my crown loosened and came out! Not much fun, especially since it is one of my two front teeth! It was easy enough to have the crown glued back in but I have oil pulled since. Coincidence? Maybe, but I had had that crown good and solid for many, many years with no problem. Any advice?

    anonymous Sep 16, 2011 11:39am

    Would love to hear on this—I don't have fixtures but that would be horrible! ~ W.

      anonymous Mar 14, 2015 3:07am

      Yes its true; i also read this and i have lost a crown at the back since i started oil pulling..but i read up about it and it points out that you will only lose those that are loose anyway; and if they are loose they are harbouring bacteria so better out anyway! Ive been oil pulling every day for over a year with coconut oil and hate to miss it.

anonymous Sep 15, 2011 12:47pm

Thanks for the article.
However, the scientists who created the method recommend only cold-pressed Sesame and/or Sunflower oil. They state several times that other oils were not proven to be as beneficial in their studies. I use coconut oil often and am aware of its healing properties, but it seems irresponsible to recommend it as a replacement for the oil pulling method without research to back it up. UNLESS, you have other sources to corroborate that choice. If so – could you share?


    anonymous Sep 15, 2011 2:31pm

    Here is just one of many articles that I've read that suggests coconut oil for pulling (posted above as well)… Sesame & Sunflower are the more traditional oils but other oils, including olive, work too.
