I finally decided to try oil pulling. I used fractionated oil, just a fancy name for liquid. I thought 20 minutes was going to be torture. To my surprise it passed very quickly. I also worried about my cheeks and jaw getting tired or sore. I was happy to discover that I was wrong there also. For the first 15 minutes it stayed liquid. After that it began to become thicker with each pull. After the full 20 minutes it was pretty thick and I got to spit it out. Curious, I spat into a clear glass. It just looked white and thick. I couldn’t wait to brush my teeth! I will see what happens tomorrow. I am going to use solid.
