Oil pulling! Have you heard of it? It's all the rage these days, or so I've been hearing. From what I understand, the act of swishing oil around your mouth for 20ish minutes, or oil pulling, is said to have many benefits. I've read a few articles on it and from what I understand, it can improve general oral health (healthier gums, whiter teeth, etc..). I've tried it 4 or 5 times and I'm noticing a slight whitening of my teeth, so that's good. The more I do it, the easier it becomes. The first time i tried it, I was weirded out by the texture change when the oil went from solid to liquid. I use about a teaspoon of coconut oil each time.
Last week we were graced with a couple beautiful days that felt like summer. The temps were in the 80s! Henry and I walked around the yard and played pretty much all day. Then yesterday happened.. The ground is once again WHITE. The grass that had greened up during the warm spell now peeks through the mottled blanket of snow. You win some, you lose some.
