Oil pulling during fasting

Yesterday indeed was going through a dull note. Suddenly an email appeared in my Inbox. I opened it reluctantly. What a surprise!! The question posed by this email friend was unique and kept our group engaged through out day with hot discussions and debates. Here goes the question.

Can we do *“oil pulling” after a long fast like *Ekadashi before breaking the fast?

Here goes the conclusion of our debate about this question.


Properties of ayurvedic Oils

Medicated Oils are widely used in Ayurveda for massaging, administering medicines and to treat diseases. Sesame oil , mustard oil and castor oil are mainly used as bases for most of the oil preparations. Among these sesame oil is considered as best. Oils are considered as excellent normalizers of vata and hence used in diseases in which vata dosha is dominant.
