We all want a nice, white, bright smile. We see the brightening toothpastes on TV and wonder do they really and truly work?
Well you may be amazed to know there are two all natural ingredients that work just as well as the teeth whitening gels and toothpastes found in stores. It will deliver results, it is cheap, and the best part is, it is healthy for the teeth.
All one needs is some salt or baking soda, or both if you desire. Brush the teeth with them, making a paste with some water. The results will get the teeth really white and bright. The baking soda will smooth the enamel on the teeth, and is not abrasive.
Baking soda will also kill the bacteria in the mouth, which will eliminate bad breath. When brushing with salt, use sea salt. This method will neutralize acids in the mouth, and will also help to kill any bacteria.
Or you may wish to use coconut oil and do the oil pulling method. This old treatment will clean the teeth while detoxing the gums and the teeth. Plus it will whiten the teeth and help remove bacteria from the mouth.
To do oil pulling using coconut oil, place one teaspoon of organic coconut oil in the mouth. If desired, one can use solid coconut oil and let it melt in the mouth. Swish the coconut oil around the mouth for 20 minutes. This will help to break down the plaque and bacteria that are located in the mouth.
The oil will get thick as you swish and will be milky in color. After 20 minutes, the oil can be spit out, with toxins and bacteria that have been pulled from the mouth and body.
Spit the mixture into the trash can and not the sink. Rinse the mouth well with warm water and then brush as normal.
