The technique of Oil Pulling is mentioned in all the three major ancient book of Ayurveda. Mentioned in Sanskrit as "Kavala Dharna", Oil pulling is basically a simple method where one needs to sip some oil and swish it through the oral cavity for some times before throwing it out. Another simple diversion of this method is called as "Gandsuh" where one holds the oil in the mouth  for some time before throwing it out.In both the methods one does not swallow the oil at all ,so no fears on that lines.

# When to do Oil Pulling :

The best time to do Oil pulling is in the morning after one brush the teeth before breakfast. One can of course do the procedure any time of the day, but morning would be the best time. Another time that is suggested would late before going to bed.

# Oil pulling is traditionally done with sesame oil, though you can also use other organic, cold-pressed oils like coconut and sunflower.

# Procedure :

Take one tablespoon of oil and swish it around in your mouth, from side to side, front to back, and in between your teeth. As with mouthwash, you do not want to swallow it. There is no need to swish so vigorously that your mouth gets tired. You’ll be loosening bacteria and hidden food particles even as you move the oil about gently.

After a few minutes, the oil may turn into a thin, milky consistency. At this point, it’s time to spit it out, rinse, and brush as usual. Your mouth will taste like you just had a tasty stirfry!

# Here are the benefits of Gandush and Kaval :

# Gandush is recommended in / for :
- to improve strength of lower jaw and chin
- to improve quality of speech, voice
- to improve strength of face
- to increase liking towards food
- to improve senses of taste
- useful in dry lips, thirst
- improves strength of gums and teeth.

# Kaval is good in conditions, such as :
- manyashul
- shirahshul (headache)
- Karna roga (ear diseases)
- Akshi roga (Eye diseases)
- Lalasrav (excessive salivation)
- Kanth roga (Throat problems)
- Mukhashosh (Thirst)
- Tandra
- Aruchi (Anorexia)
- Pinas (Chronic sinusitis)

Oil pulling is cheap; the only expense is for the oil you use. It is very easy; you simply swish oil in your mouth. Compared to other forms of detoxification it is relatively effortless. It doesn’t require dieting, fasting, or consuming unpleasant, and often bowel loosening, mixes of herbs and pills. And it is completely harmless.

" Sometimes the simplest procedures produce the greatest results "
