So here is how to oil pull using coconut oil: Take about 2 teaspoons of coconut oil and put it in your mouth. You can chew or hold the coconut oil in your mouth until it melts down and becomes liquid. This process takes about half a minute. Once the oil is melted start to swish and pull the oil back and forth as well as sideways covering all of your teeth. Do this for about 20 minutes and then spit the oil.
