Homemade Teeth Whitening Activated Charcoal & Coconut Oil Pulling

Homemade Teeth Whitening Activated Charcoal
& Coconut Oil Pulling You may have heard of the ancient practice
of oil pulling, where oil is swished around the mouth. The naturally antimicrobial coconut oil reduces
pathogens in the mouth, freshens breath and whitens teeth. This healthy fat also helps to strengthen
enamel. Activated charcoal draws toxins and impurities
out of the body. Not only does it give your mouth a hearty
detox, but this black powder actually whitens enamel without harsh bleaching agents. Breath freshening oils. The idea of swishing coconut oil around in
your mouth may not sound so appealing, even if there are health benefits. Essential oils add a pleasant taste, and also
freshen breath. Many essential oils will work, but these oil
pull tabs use mint or orange. Mint has a potent flavor for lasting fresh
breath. Orange is milder, but still has antibacterial
properties for mouth health. Coconut Oil Pulling Tabs to Whiten Teeth. Ingredients. 2 tsp Activated charcoal powder,
1 cup Coconut oil, 20 drops Peppermint or spearmint essential
oil, OR 25 drops orange essential oil, Materials,
Bowl, Rubber spatula,
Silicone mold, Instructions,
In a bowl combine all of the ingredients and mash together with a rubber spatula until
thoroughly combined. As you mash and stir, the mixture will become
softer. Once the oil is soft, spoon it into your mold. You want to use one that holds 2-3 tsps in
each cavity. If they’re too large they won’t fit in
the mouth, too small and they won’t be effective. Place the mold in the fridge for about 15
minutes, or until completely hard. Pop the oil pulling tabs out of the mold and
store in a jar. Tips for using your whitening oil pull tabs. To use, place one of the coconut oil pull
tabs in your mouth and chew until melted, then swish around. Continue to swish the oil through the teeth
and over the tongue for 10-20 minutes, before spitting in the trash can. Do NOT spit this in the sink as it can cause
a clogged drain when it hardens. Use these once a week, up to every day if
desired. The jar should be stored in a cool location,
otherwise, the oil tabs will soften and melt into one big oily mess. A fridge is a good place if your home is warmer
than 72 degrees.
