If you’ve looked at the whitening products at the store, you know how expensive they are. Luckily, there’s a natural, cheaper way to whiten your teeth. Turmeric is well known for protecting your brain from aging and for its ability to reduce inflammation. It’s also a great antibacterial agent and a powerful antiseptic.
This powerhouse can even improve your complexion, treating acne and rosacea, smoothing skin, and preventing wrinkles. You can read my separate post here. However, you may not know that turmeric is an effective, natural ingredient that can help you whiten your teeth.
Make Your Own Turmeric Paste
Make your own whitening paste by combining 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric with a bit of water until you have a paste. Apply this mixture to your toothbrush and brush your teeth like normal.
Keep in mind, this will permanently stain your toothbrush yellow. You can also spread the turmeric paste on teeth with your finger, leaving the paste on for a couple minutes. Rinse away just as you would after you brush your teeth.
