I tried oil pulling a while back and could not get down with it. The feeling of a lump of coconut oil in my mouth that I had to chew down into a liquid and swill for 20 minutes almost made me heave. But hearing of the benefits again made me want to give it another (proper) try.

Yup, I admit it. I'm one of those girls who carries around the world and his wife in her handbag.
