Oil pulling- to improve immunity

This is a great habit to get into to improve immunity. It feels a bit weird at first but you’ll quickly get used to it, plus once you see and feel the results – you’ll be a convert. Use about 1tbsp cold-pressed oil like coconut, olive, hemp, pumpkin seed, sesame or macadamia oil. Many people like to use ghee but I’d rather not use animal products for this. Swish for at least 5 mins, and up to 20 (good luck with that), then spit out. Do this first thing in the morning before u do anything else. See the images below for more details.


For a more intense detox, add a drop of an essential oil like tea tree, peppermint, lemon or eucalyptus. I usually make up a 100ml bottle of coconut, pumpkin seed and hemp oils and add a few drops each of one or all of the above oils. (Put it in a wide mouth jar in the cooler months and use a spoon to get it out as the coconut will solidify.
