Natural Teeth Whitening

Posted by

Lately the entire internet has been abuzz talking about using activated charcoal to whiten your teeth.  The idea is that-- much like detoxing skin- stains stick to the massive surface area on the charcoal particles.

But what does the internet know?

Being skeptical, I decided to try it on my own, and I have to admit that I'm pretty pleased with the results.

Here were my teeth before:

And here are my teeth after 2 minutes.  You're supposed to leave it on for 5 minutes.  I am impatient.

Things to note:  You can see the charcoal smear around my mouth in the second picture.  Also, I'm holding my jaw at a funny angle in hopes to get a better view of my teeth.  I don't really smile that way.  This isn't Awkward Family Photos, after all!

The difference is subtle, but even after two minutes I can still see one.  

So, how did I do it?  It's so easy, you'll be shocked.

1) Put 1 tsp of organic, unrefined coconut oil in a small bowl.

2) Break open and empty the contents of an activated charcoal capsule.  You can find activated charcoal in the vitamin section of your store.

3) Mix.

4) Slather it on your teeth with your finger and leave it for five minutes, and walk around with your mouth agape.  Don't swallow it.

It will look like this:

5) Brush your teeth.

That's it.  Really!  It's so simple and surprisingly effective.  Way to be awesome, Internet!
