Which oil should be used?
It is preferable to get the highest quality oil you can find. Cold pressed (raw) oil is often said to be critical to the alleged effectiveness. Sesame oil, sunflower oil, coconut oil and olive oil are the most recommended for oil pulling, but any vegetable oil will work. I prefer to use coconut oil not only because it has more benefits but also because of the pleasant flavour. I have tried olive oil but I didn’t like the strong flavour.
Want white teeth, gorgeous gums and one seriously healthy body? This is how to do it:
1. First thing in the morning (before brushing and in a empty stomach), – I do spit even before, since I remember I do that and I guess logical of things it should be good, because I am already spitting out some bad stuff – then pour yourself a tablespoon of the oil of your choice;
2. Put it in your mouth, and swish it around for anywhere from 15 to 20 minutes. Push and pull the oil back and forth, left and right, drawing it between your teeth;
3. Do NOT swallow it;
6. Rinse your mouth out with water;
7. Brush your teeth as normally you do in your daily routine.
If you are curious to know more about it, I truly recommend you to read ‘Oil pulling – Therapy Detoxifying Cleaning’ from Dr. Bruce Fife . You can buy it at:

Another good reading.
The first time I tried Matcha green tea was during my trip to Malasya a few years ago, but that was it. Fortunately recently it started to become more popular all over the world making it easier to purchase it. And again I’m really hooked on this gem. But is a shame that is dam expensive and still hard to find, but worth it!
By now you must be wondering what the hell is Matcha green tea – is a powdered green tea, a star of the traditions of Japanese Tea Ceremony. It’s made from the leaves of shade-grown tea and ground into a fine powder with a hand mill, so it makes it one of the most healthy green teas out there.
And why is so expensive? Because of its many health benefits. When you drink Matcha you are ingesting the whole leaf, meaning that one glass of Matcha is the equivalent of ten glasses of the green tea. It goes perfectly with milk due the smooth taste, rich flavour and colour. Hot or cold, cookies, sponge cake…you choose. Matcha does contain caffeine that will give you an instant pick up and so should not be given to kids. Adults only!
1. Bring enough water to a boil for the amount of servings you are making;
2. Slowly whisk the Matcha powder;
3. Once powder is dissolved into water, mix in the milk and sweeten to taste with Xylitol or Stevia;
4. You can also add a spice taste adding a stick of cinnamon when your heating the milk or whisk the milk with it once in the cup, just like you do with your coffee.
