This turmeric trick will make your teeth SUPER white

It looks a little scary, but this actually works.

We all want brilliant, pearly white smiles, and lucky for us that dream is attainable. The market is awash with teeth whitening products. Celebrities are endorsing them, bloggers are snapping about them, they’re everywhere. Here’s the kicker, they are BLOODY expensive. We don’t know about you, but we don’t really want to spend 80 on whitening strips, or 100 for that weird looking thing you bite down on.

So, we’d heard the myth about using turmeric to whiten your teeth, and in a world full of overpriced whitening products, we decided to investigate, and the good news is… this seems legitimate.

All you need is turmeric some coconut oil, and a toothbrush. Firstly we’d like to point out that we are NOT dentists, but we have looked into this and there’s nothing dangerous about the ingredients.

In fact, turmeric is an antiseptic that’s good for your oral health and coconut oil we would drink by the gallon if we could, it cleanses your teeth, cures bad breath, kills bacteria, all good stuff.

So what do you do? You simply mix a tablespoon of turmeric with coconut oil, then brush it straight onto your teeth. Now,  this is the part that you might get a bit scared. This WON’T stain your teeth, no matter how deranged you look, it will stain your toothbrush but that’s a small price to pay.

You leave the mixture on for five minutes then brush it off with water.

Instantly whiter teeth, glorious.
