I have had an excessive salt taste constantly in my mouth for the past 2 years. Checked with my Family Physician, Endocrinoligist, and Dentist. None of which could give me a reason or solution to the salt taste. I have been oil pulling with Coconut Oil for about 3 weeks and about a week after I began I realized the salt taste was gone. I have also noticed dark circles and puffiness under my eyes have diminished. I also see an improvement in the color of my teeth and gums. I will definitely continue with the OP and perhaps try another oil as well.

How to Oil Pull

The practitioner rinses their mouth with approximately one tablespoon of oil (sesame and sunflower oils are the most recommended) for 15-20 minutes on an empty stomach (preferably first thing in the morning, before eating/drinking), then spits it out.[2] This procedure is typically performed daily.[3] The oil is put in the mouth, with chin tilted up, and slowly swished, sucked, chomped and pulled through the teeth. The oil changes from yellow and oily consistency to a thin, white foam before spitting out. The mouth is rinsed out well after the procedure and followed by 2 - 3 glasses of water.
