A shining, white smile: nothing makes a person more beautiful! More than anything, drinking coffee, and tea or smoking cigarettes discolor the teeth. Chemical teeth whiteners used to bleach often contain concentrated hydrogen peroxide, which damages the teeth. There is a completely natural method to whiten the teeth - and the main ingredient can be found on your spice shelf!
For the paste, you need:
ü Turmeric (powder)
ü Coconut oil
ü Peppermint oil
You mix a teaspoon of turmeric powder, a teaspoon of coconut oil and a few drops of peppermint oil into a paste.
Finally, put the paste on your toothbrush and brush your teeth as you regularly would. If you use your own naturally manufactured teeth whitener more often, you will see the whiter result faster!
Turmeric, or Indian Saffron, belongs to the ginger family, stems from India and has been used there for centuries as a medical plant. This root doesn't only make teeth white: thanks to the components of turmeric, it is a strong inflammation inhibitor and alleviates swelling in the mouth - and around the tooth area, promotes circulations around the gums and supports healthy oral bacterial. It also anti-bacterial and fights germs, which are usually found in cavities and can cause gum disease. In this country, the root is best known in its powder form as a spice for curries, and give it that yellow color. Even though are sounds a little paradoxical: turmeric is a wonderful medium for whiter teeth, but also a highly intensive dye, which you can't get out of your clothes. Therefore, it's probably also better to use an old toothbrush - because after a while the bristles on your brush will also turn yellow.
Thanks to lauric acid, coconut oil is a true cavity killer, because it neutralizes the bacteria in the mouth. Peppermint oil also has antibacterial properties and gives the mixture a fresh taste.
