Moreover, turmeric has antibiotic, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties and is great for dental problems and sensitive teeth. It can treat gingivitis and toothaches. All these medicinal properties are offered by the curcumin, the main compound in the turmeric.

The homemade teeth whitener that we’re going to present below also includes coconut oil and baking soda. Coconut oil is beneficial for the oral health and is great for oil pulling. It can treat problems like gum disease, tooth sensitivity, bad breath or toothaches and it also eliminates the bacteria. Moreover, it brightens and whitens the teeth.

Baking soda is abrasive and can clean the teeth and remove the stains. At the same time, it promotes plaque removal and meutralizes all the acids that the bacteria produce. Plaque buildup often leads to gum disease and tooth decay.

Homemade Teeth Whitener – Recipe


– Turmeric powder

– Coconut oil

– Baking soda


Put dried turmeric root powder (4 tablespoons) in a bowl. Add the baking soda (2 teaspoons) and the virgin coconut oil (3 tablespoons). Mix well until you obtain a homogeneous paste and use it to brush your teeth.


Use your toothbrush and put the paste (2 teaspoons) on it. Brush your teeth gently for about 2 minutes. Use some melted coconut oil to swish in your mouth for 1 minute and spit it out after that. Use water to rinse your mouth. Continue this procedure a few times per week, for 2 – 3 weeks. After that, use it only 1 or 2 times per week.

Be careful because this solution can stain your hands and the skin around your mouth. Therefore, brush your teeths carefully and gently. If there are yellow stains on your skin caused by the turmeric, then you must apply milk on the stained area. Leave it on for 5 minutes, then clease it off.
