Just throwing this out there. I've been doing this a few months. Don't know for sure if it really helps, but my cycle DID finally return after I'd been doing it a month or two. It couldn't hurt.....and if nothing else, it naturally whitens your teeth!

It sounds really interesting, and seems to make sense re: detox, in a weird way. Do you really keep the same mouthful for 15 to 20 minutes??? That seems like it'd be sort of gagging or that you'd have to swallow. How much at a time? I'm curious. Thanks for posting.

I had no problem swishing for 15-20 min and never ever felt like swallowing. It's sort of strange putting oil in your mouth the first 1-2 times but after that it's not weird at all. I never gagged either. It's only 1 Tblsp so it's really just not that much.

We use cold pressed organic sesame oil

Also, it was recommended to me to spit it out into the toilet because of all the toxins that are present in the oil when you are done. That way your sinks aren't full of toxins.

It's really not that difficult. I think I will do it for the rest of my life. It's totally worth it if it works at all....it's such an easy thing to do. And your mouth feels really clean. And my teeth are so much whiter. So are dh's.
