Homemade Whitening Toothpaste (3-Ingredient)
Create your own homemade whitening toothpaste without the toxins found in most store-bought whitening kits.
This 3-ingredient recipe not only removes stubborn stains but also prevents bad breath and diminishes harmful bacteria. The best part is, it takes less than 10 minutes to make and can easily be stored in a glass jar for up to three months.
Using the power of baking soda, this recipe gently polishes away surface stains caused by various foods and beverages – including coffee and red wine. Virgin coconut oil carries antimicrobial properties to help fend off the bacteria that causes tooth decay and cavities.
This makes coconut oil great for swishing out the toxins from your mouth (hello, oil pulling!) and can even lower the risk of gingivitis.
Peppermint essential oil also fights off bacteria, while adding a natural burst of minty freshness, too!
Tip: Clove, cinnamon, lemon, or spearmint essential oil work just as well for staving off bad breath.
To make the natural whitening paste, melt the coconut oil using a double boiler for about five minutes. Remove the melted oil from the heat and stir with the baking soda and peppermint essential oil to form a paste. Pour into a six-ounce jar and store in a dry cool spot.
When ready to use, spread a dime-sized amount of paste onto a toothbrush. Gently brush your teeth in a circular motion for 1-2 minutes, then rinse with water. Use this paste 2-3 times a week or as needed.
