Full Moon Detox Potluck

For the past year or so, ever since one of my kombucha baby adopters mentioned to me the Ayurvedic detox method of oil pulling, I have gotten into a two week ritual of focusing on detoxing which begins the day after the full moon. Oil pulling is also an old Germanic ritual, which Johanna Paungger discusses in her book Moon Time: The Art of Harmony with Nature and Lunar Cycles. In this book she also mentions that the period of the waning of the moon (as the moon goes from full to dark) is part of a natural cycle of waning in general and a very useful time to detox your body as you are working in tune with the pull of the gravity of the moon upon the fluids of our own bodies (many other traditions also follow this practice).
