How to Whiten Your Teeth Naturally

September 4, 2014

Want to whiten teeth naturally? Try Sophie Uliano’s DIY Minty Toothpaste recipe.

Sophie Uliano‘s Minty Toothpaste:

2tsp baking soda

2 tsp vegetable glycerin

2tsp hydrogen peroxide

6 drops peppermint essential oil

1/2 tsp xylitol* (powder that you will find in the health food store).

* Sophie adds xylitol in place of the stevia because xylitol has been proven to reduce tooth decay.

In a small bowl, mix all the ingredients together to form a paste.

Spoon it into a small jar or air tight plastic container.

When you are ready to use, you simply scoop out the paste with your toothbrush.

The consistency is quite runny, which I like. If, however, it’s too runny for you, add 1 more tsp of baking soda.

If it’s not sweet enough (especially for kids) add another 1/2 tsp of xylitol.
