“I just like to smile. Smiling’s my favorite.”

It does feel pretty darn good to smile a big, genuine, toothy and bright smile. Better yet, smiling is good for your health!

Check out these interesting facts about smiling:

  • Forcing yourself to smile can instantly boost your mood.
  • Smiling relieves stress by releasing endorphins.
  • It boosts your immune system.

What is the best accessory for your smile? Pearly whites of course! And believe it or not, achieving a whiter smile is as easy as 1, 2, 3…

Here are 3 incredibly easy homemade natural teeth whitener recipes that are sure to brighten your smile!

Homemade Natural Teeth Whitener #1: Fresh Strawberry Whitener

Why It Works

Fresh strawberry
  • Contains malic acid, a natural enamel whitener.
  • Helps remove plaque accumulation.

Baking Soda
  • Makes a great mild abrasive that helps scrubs stains.
  • Helps control odor as well!

What You Need:

  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 mashed strawberry
  • 3 drops lemon essential oil

How To Make & Use It:

  • Mix strawberry and baking soda to form a paste.
  • Add in essential lemon oil. Place paste on toothbrush and brush your teeth for 2 minutes.
  • Rinse your mouth and brush your teeth with natural toothpaste.

NOTE: Use immediately after making. Store in refrigerator for up to 3 days. Mix before each use.

Homemade Natural Teeth Whitener #2: Activated Charcoal Scrub

Why It Works

Activated Charcoal
  • Highly absorbent material.
  • Pulls toxins from the mouth and removes stains.
  • Removes toxins when they adhere to the surface of the charcoal (helps with gum disease).

What You Need:

  • 1 capsule of activated charcoal
  • Toothbrush – a separate one from your daily use (the charcoal will stain the bristles)

How To Use It:

  • Carefully open the capsule and dump the charcoal on your toothbrush.
  • Apply charcoal to teeth and gently brush your teeth for 2 minutes.
  • Rinse your toothbrush off and set aside.
  • Take a sip of water and continue swishing mixture in your mouth for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Spit mixture out into sink and then rinse your mouth out with water.
  • Brush your teeth as you normally would (I recommend using coconut oil and baking soda as a basic natural toothpaste).
  • Use as often as needed to reach desired whiteness.

Homemade Natural Teeth Whitener #3: Turmeric Paste

Why It Works

Turmeric
  • Contains strong antioxidants, which are great for oral health.
  • Has astringent properties and is also abrasive, which helps remove stains. 

What You Need:

  • ¼  tsp organic turmeric powder
  • ⅛  tsp coconut oil

How To Make & Use It:

  • Mix equal parts of turmeric and coconut oil to form a paste.
  • Place on toothbrush (one you don’t mind staining) and brush teeth with paste for 2 minutes.
  • Let paste sit on teeth for 5 minutes.
  • Rinse paste out of mouth.

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
