People from all walks of life are catching on to a trend that was once considered a cosmetic luxury, using a variety of methods from high-end custom-fit bleaching trays and in-office laser bleaching treatments to less expensive, peroxide-based whitening kits such as gel strips and pens that can be used at home.
But bleach and peroxide in your mouth? As you might expect, there are side effects associated with bleach and other teeth whitening methods, which include chemical burns, reduced tooth enamel, tooth sensitivity and mild irritation of the soft tissues of your mouth, particularly the gums. None of those sound like any fun to deal with!
Fortunately, there are inexpensive alternatives for natural teeth whitening that will have you ready for your close-up in no time, and without ever having to step foot in a dentist’s office. What could be better than that?
Want to whiten your teeth at home, naturally? Pure, therapeutic grade essential oils are a great way to brighten your smile AND freshen your breath! Just a drop of essential oils like thyme, cinnamon bark and clove bud on your toothbrush with your favorite all natural toothpaste does the trick.
Essential Oils - Essential oils help whiten your teeth.
Keep in mind that you want to use only high quality, 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oils. This is because most other essential oils found in your health food store or online are extended with harmful chemicals. In fact, essential oil labeling rules allow them to say 100% pure and still contain up to 50% of chemical extenders.
Put a drop of your preferred essential oil on your toothbrush, add your favorite all-natural toothpaste and brush your teeth. Some people have written to tell us that they also use these essential oils to freshen their breath because of their refreshing, long-lasting scent!
Compliment your Body Ecology lifestyle with one or all of these methods, and show off the vibrant, healthy you. Turn the world on with your smile!
