Sesame Vs. Olive Oil?

Posted by John (Elgin, OR) on 01/23/2007

I have been using sesame oil for some time. Today after reading your web page I thought I would try olive oil, because I have a Candida problem. When I use sesame oil it is milk white when I spit it out, but the olive oil didn't change color. I always swish for 20 minutes. Can you address this issue please? My asthma is getting better along with my allergies, plus I'm sleeping better. I have been doing oil pulling about three months now. I plan on doing this the rest of my life.

Dear John: In some cases oil pulling can remove the pollens responsible for hayfever and other allergens. Most allergens are oil soluble so oil pulling will remove that.

Certain oils or food stimulate the salivary glands. Sesame seed oil stimulate your salivary glands while olive oil does less. Try adding some peppermint oil to the olive oil and see if it turns white. Peppermint oil in some cases stimulate the salivary glands, but then so does xylitol and stevia, which are both sweet tasting. Sunflower should work the best overall along with sesame.
