Detox 001: Oil Pulling

Starting from tonight, Xiaoli and I will try the weirdest detox ever - Oil Pulling.

Procedure:

You just need to rinse your month with approximately one tablespoon of oil (sesame and sunflower oils are the most recommended) for 15-20 minutes on an empty stomach, i.e. first thing in the morning before breakfast, and before sleep, then spit it out.

The oil is put in the mouth, with chin tilted up, and slowly swished, sucked, chomped and pulled through the teeth. 

The oil in the mouth will change to a thin white foam by the end! Spit it out and rinse your mouth and followed by 2-3 glasses of water.

Do it daily, 2 -3 times per day. We are going to do a trial for a week to see how it goes. It seems effortless to do so. We hope our skin will turn fresher...
