Oil pulling, day 2

As I said in my first oil pulling post, I wouldn't be practicing every day. For day 2, I used sesame oil, since that is one of the recommended oils for this technique. I don't know if there are different types of sesame oil; I just used what I had in the cupboard. In some ways, using sesame oil was easier since I didn't have to melt the oil in my mouth like I did for the coconut oil. In another way, it was worse because sesame oil has such a strong taste. Mind you, I like the flavor. After all, I cook with it. But I can see how some pratictioners are grossed out by the taste.

As with day 1, my mouth was sensitive after oil pulling, but this time, my tongue was more sensitive than the rest of my mouth.
