For a long time, I gagged at the thought of toothpaste early in the morning. I still do, actually. That’s why I don’t use toothpaste anymore! Phew. Getting that out was easier than I thought. Before you start thinking my teeth must be rotting and that my breath stinks, think again. I started oil pulling last year in May. With that and my easy, homemade Teeth Whitening Treatment my teeth are whiter and healthier than ever before.
Before then I had been oil pulling on and off. I wanted to be serious about it before heading out on the legendary road trip last year, I really wanted to do away with toothpaste and not lug it around. And, I wanted whiter teeth, because who doesn’t? I put a few scoops of unrefined coconut oil in a little jar and added a few of my favorite essential oils for oral health. A little bit of orange, a few of spearmint and one of peppermint. I would then take about a spoonful and swish it around in my mouth for 20 minutes upon waking. I couldn’t even begin to tell you the wonders this did for my oral health.
When I went to the dentist last, my dental hygienist said my teeth looked better than ever. When I told her that I had been oil pulling and cut toothpaste out of my life completely her jaw dropped. She told me to stop doing that and go back to using abrasive toothpaste or my mouth would become very unhealthy before I knew it. I laughed because she is a medical professional and her beliefs were wrong. I didn’t even mention it to the dentist because she must’ve told him before he walked in, I could see by the look in his eye they had talked about it in the back.
I decided that I’m going to forward I would use my dental insurance only to get my routine cleanings and any other dental work that must be done outside of own holistic treatments. I’m not a doctor so don’t take this as medical counseling and advice. I just want to share on here everything natural that has helped and worked for me.
My wife is not the biggest fan of oil pulling because she doesn’t like the feeling of swishing around oil in her mouth for basically the first half hour of every morning. And I get that. She uses a really well reviewed all-natural toothpaste made of neem oil and pomegranate seeds that we typically pick up at whole foods. Being that she has not converted over to the dark side of coconut oil pulling, she recently woke up with a few stains on her two front teeth. Mind you, this woman has the most perfect teeth I have ever seen in my life! They are perfect pearly whites and she has not had even one cavity, ever. I immediately noticed the stain the day it showed up. She felt so self-conscious and didn’t want to smile. The thought of not seeing that beautiful smile glaring at me made me get to work on a natural treatment that can get the stain out without a trip to the dentist and a huge bill at that.
I mixed up a little bit of coconut oil with baking soda and a combination of some essential oils that I use for good oral health. She used it for two days (once before going to bed at night) and the stain was absolutely gone! I realize I hit the jackpot with my new Teeth Whitening Treatment. I started using it once a week and I can tell the difference already. My family is known for having bad teeth and I lucked out without having to get braces at a young age or even at all. So this is a miracle for sure.
As I got older, I took care of my teeth less and less. Trust me, I really paid the price so to find a teeth whitening treatment that work for us and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg is an absolute blessing. And when I say I paid the price, I mean I literally paid the price out-of-pocket to get my teeth fixed and make them look brand spanking new. Millions of fillings and two root canals later, I think I’ve learned my lesson and I plan on continuing to worry about my oral health and I won’t ever eat a candy again. I solemnly swear!
You can make just a quarter of the recipe to see if you like before committing to it. That’s what we did and once we committed we made a 4-oz jar that sits on the master bathroom vanity. Just scoop some out of the jar with your toothbrush, not wet of course, and basically brush until it tastes bad. Make sure to wash it out but don’t swallow any of your teeth whitening treatment because I’m not sure that swallowing baking soda can be useful. I would also recommend that this treatment be for adults only because there are chances a young child might want to swallow it. If you do want to whiten your child’s teeth using our homemade teeth whitening treatment, feel free to do so but only under your supervision.
We hope this solves your teeth whitening woes, it surely did for us. If you have any questions or comments on holistic oral health treatment, go ahead and leave us a message in the comments.
