Oil Pulling

Have you heard of oil pulling? My husband has been pulling coconut oil for the last two weeks.  

He puts a teaspoon of solid oil in his mouth and swooshes it around for 20 minutes. After just a few seconds the solid oil becomes liquid. 

It’s an Ayurvadic practice that’s been around for ages. It’s supposed improve dental hygiene, extract toxins from your mouth, and improve overall health & energy. He kept reading about so he decided to try it for a month. 

For 20 minutes every night he can’t talk to me and it’s been sort of fun. But not in the way you would think.  He does sharades to communicate and writes on paper and mumbles things. I try to guess what he’s saying and I tell stories and talk about my day knowing he can’t respond. And he listens!
