In recent weeks, two actresses have come forward to endorse 'oil pulling', a natural way to boost oral health. Gwyneth Paltrow and Shailene Woodley have both gushed about the beauty trend which is currently rising in popularity, saying they believe it's a great way to whiten teeth, kill oral toxins and even improve skin. So, what exactly is 'oil pulling' and why is it said to be beneficial? The process is simple - you take a tablespoon of natural oil (coconut oil is the most popular but other oils work just as well) and swish it gently around your mouth for about 20 minutes, before spitting it out. The oil absorbs bacteria, mucous and other toxins, so once you spit the contents of your mouth out, you'll feel fresh and clean. Paltrow commented on the process, saying she has just begun 'oil pulling' but is very interested in it: "I just started 'oil pulling,' which is when you swish coconut oil around (in your mouth) for 20 minutes, and it's supposed to be great for oral health and making your teeth white. It's supposed to clear up your skin, as well."

Shailene also had positive things to say about the process, saying that it can improve teeth:  ''I love a natural way to heal. You can do something called 'oil pulling' where you swish coconut or sesame oil in your mouth when you wake up and spit it out. It's amazing! It really makes your teeth whiter, because the plaque on your teeth is not water soluble, it's fat-soluble.''
