tj virg coconut oil

I tried “oil pulling” today for the first time. Basically you swish around a mouth full of virgin coconut oil (Trader Joe’s is where i got mine) for 20 mins. Suppose to have a million health benefits including better sleep, whiter teeth, lowers craving for carbs., “pulls” the bacteria out of your gums that brushing doesn’t touch.

Even in hair and on skin gives health benefits (since most of the drug store lotions don’t seem to do anything for dry skin, I am happy to give this a try… so far, me likey!)… plus, it smells good and has several health supporting vitamins in it.

On this video, Corey Hedgepeth explains the benefits he found when he tried “oil pulling” with virgin coconut oil (as you’ll see, he uses Trader Joe’s as well!). I really like the casual park setting and the chill way Corey shares his experience:
