Learn how to make DIY Activated Charcoal Whitening Toothpaste.
Natural Teeth Whitener and Toothpaste Recipe
1/3 cup Charcoal Powder
2/3 cup raw, organic, unrefined coconut oil (available at local health food store).
peppermint essential oil (food grade) 3 drops or more to your taste/optional.
If the coconut oil is in a solid state, over low heat, gently melt it to a liquid. Once melted, pour into a glass jar that has a tight fitting lid.
Add the charcoal powder and essential oil if using and mix well. If the temps outside are warm you can put in the fridge. If your house is 74 degrees or cooler, it will become solid and you can keep the toothpaste in your medicine cabinet. Both coconut oil and charcoal DO NOT have to be refrigerated, so if you don’t mind the liquid state, you can put it in your cabinet as well.
Take your toothbrush and scoop up a desired amount and gently brush away.
This toothpaste will actually help remove stains, plaque and will draw out metals and toxins in your mouth.
You may also want to use this solution for ‘oil pulling.’
Just scoop out a heaping tablespoon of the toothpaste and gently and slowly swish the solution in your mouth. For heavy stains, GENTLY and SLOWLY ‘pull’ through your teeth, for a minimum of 20 minutes.
Not last, not least charcoal is often used for DENTAL INFECTIONS
