How To Whiten Your Teeth Naturally At Home – 3 Natural DIY Ways to Whiten Your Teeth

Natural Ways to Whiten Your Teeth

Whitening your teeth can be a costly process. In order to commit to a professional tooth whitening routine, you have to pay for routine visits to your dental office. If you want to do it from home, you may end up purchasing several kits. Both of these options use chemical bleaches of some kind, and both are far from natural options. If you want to avoid the chemicals and keep your cost budget friendly, you may want to go with some natural teeth whitening methods.

Here are a few homemade options to consider.

Baking Soda

Baking soda is a natural option for many things around your home from cleaning to even being used as a way to stop odor. You can use it in an oral care routine by simply using it to make a natural toothpaste. Take two parts coconut oil, one part baking soda, a few drops of your favorite flavored essential oil. Use this in place of your normal toothpaste. The oil helps cut down on the harsh abrasiveness of baking soda alone and helps to hydrate the gums. The baking soda will help to work away plaque and toxins and to help you remove them from your teeth and whiten the enamel.

Coconut Oil Pulling

One of the benefits of using a coconut oil pulling routine is the whitening effect it offers.This does take time and is not as quick or evident as using baking soda, but it also does not have an abrasive behavior either.

When you use an oil pulling method you are breaking down the toxins and bacteria that can build up on teeth and cause staining. This means that you are, in effect, whitening your teeth through the process. You then brush away the remaining oil residue and rinse away anything else. This cleans, removes toxins, and leaves you with whiter teeth over time without causing sensitivity or breakdown of the enamel.

Charcoal Toothpaste

Charcoal is not something you may normally think of when you think of tooth whitening.The truth is, it can help greatly. The charcoal powder can be used directly on your toothbrush and applied to your teeth. Simply brush as normal and rinse. It will break up toxins, bacteria, and stain causing agents and remove them from your teeth. You will need to do a long rinse after this to remove all the charcoal powder from your mouth and teeth.

Keep in mind, this will stain clothing as well as your brush so do be careful when using it.

Also keep in mind that you need to focus not only on whitening your teeth, but keeping an  eye on your teeth as well.

Make sure you are taking notice if you start to feel a  sensitivity to cold or warm foods, if you notice inflammation of the gums, or if you notice other issues. Stop your routine and seek a dental professional if any of these issues  occur.

Natural Remedies For Dealing With Gingivitis

 

Natural Remedies For Dealing With Gingivitis

Gingivitis is marked by swelling of the gums. There are several factors that play into what causes this issue. Overall, it can be a very painful oral care issue to take care of. You can end up with bleeding gums, pain in your mouth, and ongoing issues with tooth pain and decay.

You may be wondering how you can reverse gingivitis. You have a few options, which include medications and medicated oral care products.

Another option is to go with a natural remedy. Below are a few of the natural options you may want to try.

Coconut Oil Pull Routine

One of the ways that you can combat gingivitis is to start a coconut oil pull routine.
There are several reasons for this. The oil pull is called that because it pulls the toxins,
bacteria, and debris away from your teeth and gums. By removing the build-up of toxins,
bacteria, germs, and other debris you are helping to reduce the very things that can
cause gingivitis and cause it to be worse. This is one of the main reasons many people
move to an oil pull routine. You are not brushing the area with harsh abrasives or
chemicals and you are still getting the area clean.

Salt Water Rinse

Following your coconut oil pull routine, you should lightly brush your teeth with a very
gentle brush and then rinse with a warm salt water rinse. The salt water rinse will help to
soothe any inflammation or sore areas in the mouth. This can be vital since the major
noticeable issue of gingivitis is the swelling and inflammation of the gums.

Turmeric Paste

One way that some people use to help with gingivitis is to use a turmeric paste. You can
use this anti-inflammatory herb in one of two ways. The first is to literally make a paste
from the turmeric and to use it directly on your teeth. This can massively stain your
teeth, so you will have to follow it with a whitening option of some kind. There are
several steps to this method, but it does work. The easier option is to make the turmeric
paste, which is simply turmeric powder with water that is boiled and cooked to a peanut
butter like paste. Use a quarter of a teaspoon of the paste mixed with warm nut based
milk and drink the mixture at least once a day to help reduce inflammation and pain in
the mouth.

Clove Oil

In some cases, you may have pain or gingivitis issues that are worse than others in
certain parts of the mouth. Your jaw may hurt, a specific tooth may ache, and so on.
The easiest way to naturally take care of this aspect of gingivitis is to use clove oil on
that spot if it is still hurting after your oral care routine.

You can use these options together, one at a time, or just on trial runs to see which
ones work best for you. Keep in mind, there are some over the counter natural or
organic options available as well. Make sure if you purchase premixed natural gingivitis
remedies that you are going with vegan options to ensure you are getting not only
organic products but truly natural plant-based ones as well.

The Benefits of Coconut Oil Pulling -To Whiten Your Teeth, Keep Them Clean, And Keep Your Gum Health

File:Coconut oil 2.jpg

If you have been around the coconut oil forums and blogs, you probably already know about coconut oil pulling. What you may not know is what it is, what it does, and how you can benefit from the process. Basically, coconut oil pulling consists of taking a tablespoon of raw coconut oil and using it as a sort of mouthwash.

You swish it in your mouth for around ten to twenty minutes and spit the mixture out. You can follow this with brushing, a demineralizing rinse, or just a warm water rinse if you would like. Here below are the benefits you can receive from doing this oil pulling technique on a routine basis.

Removing Harmful Toxins

One of the leading benefits to using a coconut oil pulling routine for your oral care is the removal of harmful toxins. As you rinse your mouth with the oil, it will help to soften and break up plaque that can contain bacteria and toxins.

These can cause the breakdown of enamel and tooth decay. The oil holds onto the toxins helping to remove them from your teeth and mouth. When you spit out the oil, you are also spitting out the toxins, food particles, and bacteria that was gathered by the oil during the pulling process.

Avoid Abrasive Pastes

If you need an option for teeth cleaning that avoids chemicals and abrasives then this is an ideal benefit for you from coconut oil pulling. With the oil pulling process all you need is the oil and a toothbrush to remove the residue. You do not need pastes, harsh abrasives, or microbead actions from various toothpaste options.

All you need to whiten your teeth, keep them clean, and keep your gum health is the oil. Just make sure to gently brush away and rinse away any residue following the oil pulling process.

Teeth Whitening

A concern for many people is the shade of their teeth. You do not want yellow teeth and you may not be sure that you want to go with a harsh chemical, abrasive, or bleach to achieve the shade results you want from teeth whitening. Since the main aspect of oil pulling is that the oil pulls away the debris and harsh toxins from your teeth, it is also pulling away the very things that cause staining as well. This means that you are getting whitening over the course of a routine oil pulling schedule.

Improved Breath

Since you will be removing the bacteria and toxins from your mouth, it stands to reason you will be leaving behind a cleaner and fresher mouth as well.

Keep in mind that it is the bacteria that causes the most issues with bad breath and issues with breath following eating and drinking. Oil pulling helps to reduce the amount of bacteria, which in turn increases the chances of fresher breath for longer periods of time.

All of these benefits are possible through routine oil pulling methods. You can do oil pulling daily or as you feel it is needed. Make sure you are using an oil that is pure. You want one that is organic, vegan to ensure it is in fact totally plant based, and non-GMO.

This will ensure you are getting the full benefits and no processing fillers in the oil.

Easy DIY Hair Masks for Soft, Silky Hair

natural diy hair masks

It is always a good idea is to use a hair mask, aiming for about once a week or so. This will cleanse your hair follicles and moisturize your hair, so that it is left silky and smooth no matter how much swimming or sunning you do. Here are some super simple hair masks you can try out.

Use Coconut Oil Alone

The first hair mask is something you might have already heard of before. This is when you use just coconut oil as its own hair mask. Yes – you can definitely add coconut oil to your hair on its own!

Coconut oil is all-natural, healthy, and moisturizing. It helps with shine, reduces tangles, and gives you soft, silky hair you love to run your fingers through. When using coconut oil as a mask, always use unrefined, virgin coconut oil.

Add Some Lemon Juice

Another coconut oil hair mask is one that adds in some lemon juice to the oil. This is going to help reduce dandruff and buildup on your scalp.

If you see white specks on your scalp or when brushing your hair, you probably have some buildup or dandruff. You need something that will lift it from your scalp so that you can wash it away while shampooing.

Lemon juice works great for this, while the coconut oil provided a healthy base for the mask.

Make a Honey Hair Mask

If you have dry or damaged hair, you’ll need something  thick to add to your hair mask. This is where honey comes into play. As with all natural beauty products, you should be using raw honey, not the sugar-filled honey you find in your local grocery store.

To make this hair mask, use your raw honey with a little olive oil, and that’s really all you need. You can also use coconut oil that is melted if you prefer. Leave it in your hair for about 10-15 minutes before rinsing out.

Use Avocado for Shine

For some added shine, you can try making an avocado hair mask. This hair mask provides shine and increases protein in your hair follicles with the egg yolk. All you need is one egg yolk and half of an avocado mashed and mixed with the yolk. Scoop the ingredients and add them to your hair, really applying to your hair down to the tips. Leave it in your hair for a few minutes while in the shower, then rinse out.
