While yellow is a beautiful colour and one of our favourites when it comes to our choice of clothes or beauty products, we can all admit that no one likes to turn those pearly white teeth into a shade of yellow. Unfortunately for us, certain eating habits like consuming coffee, tea and certain lifestyle habits like smoking can add a shade of yellow to our beautiful white teeth. So, if you've tried and tested everything but nothing seems to work, here's a foolproof recipe for a DIY whitening toothpaste that will definitely make your teeth sparkle.
The ingredients you'll need for this one are 1 Tablespoon Baking Soda, 1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil, A pinch of charcoal powder (optional), 2-3 drops Peppermint Essential Oil for the cooling sensation (optional). And of course, you're going to need a bowl and a spoon to mix everything and a container to store your toothpaste.
Start by adding the baking soda to the bowl and then add the coconut oil (do not heat). Mix these two well and then add the other ingredients if you wish to do so. Mix all the ingredients well until they form a thick and consistent paste. And then transfer this paste into the container for storing. Et voila! Your toothpaste is ready to use.
Start by using it at least three times a week. You'll have to give it about a month to start seeing the difference. And once those teeth are white again, all you need to do is use this toothpaste once a week so that they don't start going yellow again. Try this out and see if it works for you.
