One medical professional who is bullish on the craze is Chicago dentist Jessica Emery.
“It’s fantastic,” she says. “When we spit out the oil, we spit out the bacteria.”

There’s various oils you can use, but coconut oil seems to be the most popular oil for oil pulling.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Shailene Woodley have recently gave their endorsements to the practice.
