Coconut oil is amazing – I love using it as lib balm, shaving cream, body lotion, hair mask, for cooking… And today I discovered another life hack!
I was skeptical when I saw this on instagram and wish I’d taken before and after pictures.
I’ve always really struggled with yellow-y teeth despite being a non smoker because I am a tea and a coffee drinker, and to top that, I don’t have milk – I always drink them black.
For years I’ve been meaning to save up and go and get them whitened professionally as you hear horror stories about the chemicals etc. in DIY kits – it’s important to use a professional dentist.
But then I saw a natural tip on instagram and had a spare 5 minutes, so I thought I’d give it a shot.
It seems to have worked!
Mix some coconut oil with turmeric. It will look crazy yellow!
Brush it on to your teeth, give them a good scrub.
Leave for 5 minutes and swill any oil around your mouth, this is no time for swallowing!
When time’s up, spit, rinse your mouth a few times, clean your teeth as normal with toothpaste and voila! Instantly whiter.
It worked for me! I’m going to try it daily for the next 7 days and see if I can give them a real lift. I’ll let you know how it goes.
These aren’t my teeth by the way. But maybe one day 😉
