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.
I have decided to amass a bunch of things that make you feel better or make your life better with out costing an arm and a leg, or be loaded with a ton of shit…
Here is a start!
¼ teaspoon Cayenne
¼ teaspoon Ginger
1 Tablespoon Cider Vinegar (an organic one, like Bragg’s, is preferred.)
2 Tablespoon Water
1 Tablespoon Honey (use a locally produced raw honey, if possible.)
Dissolve cayenne and ginger in cider vinegar and water. Add honey and shake well. Take 1 Tablespoon as needed for cough.
Note: this doesn’t dissolve perfectly. Always shake well before using.
If you make this in small batches as the recipe is written, there is no need to refrigerate.
If you prefer, you may refrigerate this. It keeps as long as you need it.
