  1. 1. HomeHome We’ve noticed an increasing interest about oil pulling all across the internet. As an ancient home remedy practice, it has been done for centuries, and yet little scientific research has been done regarding its efficacy. Not only it is practiced in India, but the traditional belief extends as far as Russia. So what isoil pulling anyway?
