Whiten Teeth- Naturally

June 3, 2014 4

This is one of the coolest tricks to whiten your teeth- it works like a charm. I read about using the herb turmeric to whiten your teeth at Raw for Beauty.  Skeptical, I tried it at home and actually giggled with glee because the results were obvious. So simple, here is what you do: Pick up a jar of ground turmeric. It is the consistency of ground cinnamon, but mustard-yellow in color.  Be careful, it will stain clothing!  Put a spoonful of turmeric in a small dish, add a bit of water to form a paste. Brush your teeth with the paste for about 30 seconds. Rinse and look at your dazzling smile. Your toothbrush will be permanently stained yellow, so use an old one if you like. Also, I would not advise wearing good clothing that could stain or spitting out the turmeric into a white sink. While you are brushing, know that you are using an herb with a wealth of nutritional benefits like being an excellent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.  You can’t say that about chemical teeth whiteners.  Enjoy this easy and healthy way to get whiter teeth.

    Wow! This is great! I will try this. I cook with tumeric a lot. I’ve been using food-grade charcoal (made from coconut shells) to whiten my teeth. Same thing.. very staining… need to be careful spitting it out 🙂 It works pretty well! I also use it for other things… however, I’ll give this a shot, too 🙂
