-Drink a glass of water to cleanse your palate.
-Pour roughly a tablespoon of oil (coconut, sesame, the variety is up to you).
-Swish it in your mouth as long as you're able (beginners are advised to aim for the five minute mark, while practiced oil-pullers strive for 15-20 minutes of swishing).
-Upon completion, spit out the oil — it's important not to swallow, as it's now filled with post-swishing toxins.
-Rinse out your mouth with warm water and follow with a thorough tooth brushing.
