Oil extraction

Have you ever heard of oil extraction? It has a long tradition in naturopathy, even though it has been somewhat forgotten in recent decades. Some time ago, however, this ancient Ayurvedic method was rediscovered and is finding more and more followers.

What is oil extraction?

Oil extraction is an excellent way to get rid of toxins from the body and thus promoting health and protecting against disease. Every morning before brushing your teeth, put a tablespoon of extra virgin vegetable oil in your mouth and rinse your entire oral cavity with it. The procedure takes about 10 minutes. Push the oil through your teeth, gargle it, and swish it from side to side so that the entire mucous membrane of the oral cavity comes into contact with it. Then spit out the oil, rinse your mouth and brush your teeth. The oil emulsifies during the rinsing process and takes on a whitish colour. Avoid swallowing it as it now has a lot of toxins in it.

How does oil extraction work?

Oil extraction is primarily used for oral hygiene and for toxin removal. In particular, heavy metals such as lead or amalgam and substances that are not water-soluble but fat-soluble are bound and then can be removed from the body using this method. This is why advocates of oil extraction believe that oil extraction is just as important to the cleansing process as regularly drinking water. In fact, the oral mucosa is an ideal site for toxin removal. Studies have shown that it is effective against an imbalance in mouth bacteria, bad breath, cavities, plaque formation and periodontitis. Even the teeth should become whiter again. For successful treatment, however, it is necessary to follow a consistent, daily application. Do you have a permanently coated tongue? Then you should definitely try oil extraction. A coat on a tongue is nothing more than a form of excretion. With oil extraction you aid your body in detoxification and thus free it from the annoying tongue coating.


Which oil is suitable?

What's more important is the quality of the oil rather than the type of plant. It should be a virgin, cold-pressed edible oil, and organic if possible. The choice of type of oil is then rather a question of taste. Suitable oils include sesame, olive, sunflower, rapeseed and coconut. Ideally you should try which tastes best to you before putting a tablespoon of oil in your mouth, because getting up to get the oil and then rinsing with it for 10 minutes can be a hassle, at least in the beginning.
