I just heard of this the other day from my sister.  Have any of you done this or do any of you do this?  She is doing a 30 day trial to see if it really works.  

Here is a link that talks more about it.  I can't make it clicky though :(

Hmm, never heard of this before. Don't think it's something I'd try.

I love coconut oil and use it for cooking, baking and on my terribly dry skin (not from the same jar!) ... and I have thought of trying it for dental oil pulling.  Don't know if it works ... but I don't think it will hurt!

I started four days ago. I have receeding gums and am hoping that it helps. I do see a difference in the color. They are already whiter.

Sure, I am using coconut oil. At first it was hard to handle. I like coconut, so the flavor isn't bad, it was putting a clump of solid oil in my mouth that was kind of gross. lol It dissolves quickly though.
