How to Whiten Teeth Naturally
I am having so much fun making my everyday personal care products so far. I am saving money, can use different ingredients and use the final product without quilt. After making few recipes with success, I decided to gradually eliminate almost all commercial bought products. I still buy few products from Young Living, but I am trying to cut on the home, beauty and personal care products budget as much as I can.

When I first found out about the sentence “call poison control” in the commercial tooth paste, I decided it will never go into my or my family’s mouth. I started brushing my teeth with baking soda and was amazed with the freshness it leaves in my mouth. I then tried different recipes and this one I am sharing with you today, not only cleans and kept my teeth from getting cavities, but also I saw a tremendous change in my teeth color. They look whiter and brighter.

Overview about the main ingredients used in this recipe

Turmeric is known as the spice that stains your cutting board, cooking tools, and clothes. Well, surprisingly it’s very affective for natural teeth whitening. Some people can see a difference for the first use and some may see it overtime. I am not going to lie to you and tell you that you will get the fake look from the hollywood stars as those often got veneers, but I promise you that you will see and feel a difference. There is numerous studies done about the benefits of turmeric for our health. This one shows that it had a positive effect on gingival inflammation.  Almost every DIY beauty recipe my mom use to make includes Turmeric. She is now sixty years old and you can barley see any fine lines in her face.

Botanical Clay is one of the best beauty and healthy food based ingredient you must have at home. Botanical clay is excellent for oral health, because it’s an excellent source of calcium, magnesium, and silica, all necessary for healthy enamel.  It’s great for taking internally as a detox supplement once a week,  just by mixing one teaspoon with water. It’s great for any skin condition and acne. Check out my clay face mask here. 

Essential Oils this toothpaste can also be flavored using pretty much any edible, flavorful essential oil–just make sure the oil is authentically therapeutic grade (which, according to my research, would only be the Young Living brand). Read more about it here and treat yourself with their amazing premium stater kit. It’s the best value to get you started using their products.

    I can’t wait to try this recipe. I have been looking for a natural way to whiten my teeth. I hate all the chemicals in regular teeth whiteners.
