We seem to have a bunch of new posters here, so lets get down to the basics again.
Any oil will do EXCEPT: Canola (not fit for human consumption), Peanut (contains mold), Soy (contains estrogenic properties) or any oil that is dark.
Expeller Pressed and Cold Pressed are basically the same thing. Pressing the nut or seed without heat. This is also called Unrefined.
Organic if you can get it.
You can use refined oils. You can use olive oil (but it MAY stain your teeth). You can use Safflower Oil from the grocery store. It's FINE.
If you want the greatest benefits, try to use oils that have not been heated. You do absorb the health benefits of the oil.
There have been studies that say that nut and seed oils, even when cold pressed start to oxidize and go rancid immediately. There have been studies on bad radicals and oils. I don't have time but challenge the posters here to do some research on this and post for our edification.
Coconut Oil apparently is not subject to this intense oxidation. It can keep for years without any rancidity. It can be heated to a very high temperature without breaking down. Does anyone have any info on the superiority of coconut vs other oils?
I think it's time to look more into additives
and essential oils. Who is using what essential oil other than tea tree or oil of oregano, and why? Has anyone experimented? The only reason I don't do more experimentation with essential additives
is I'm worried about the dentin of my teeth. It's one thing to relieve the body of bacteria, another to hurt our enamel and dentin. I'm just curious if anyone has found something else? Peppermint hurts my teeth like the dickens......
So, there you go. The basics on oil.
Take a tablespoon (or less) of oil.
Gently swish all around your mouth and suck between your teeth.
This is not an olympic event, so don't hurt your jaw swishing! However if you decide to do power swishing, I've heard if firms up jowels....
The oil should thicken and then thin. This can happen anytime.
If it stays thick, do for 20 minutes.
This is not an exact science! Thick, thin, yellow, white. No matter. Just swish it around for as long as you can up to 20 minutes. Spit it out in 3, 5, 7, 10 whatever. Whatever works for you. It the daily content of your saliva that changes it from day to day. It will not always be the same, but do it everyday.
Rinse with warm Sea Salt
water to really cleanse and add to the healthy protocol.
Wha La......not too complicated....easy breezy.
There it is in a nutshell. No reason to get too dramatic about it. It's an everyday thing, like brushing your teeth. Change your oil every once in a while. Don't know why this renews the therapy, but it does.
