Heat the coconut oil and then mix the other ingredients. Stir it to give it a paste like consistency. You must store the same in an air tight container. Every time you need to brush, just dip the toothbrush in this paste and apply on teeth and start brushing.
Rub a Banana on your teeth
Yes, you read that right! Banana is a fruit which is high in potassium, magnesium, and manganese. These elements are even richer in a ripe banana, hence using the ripe banana for teeth cleansing makes more sense. These three vitamins will definitely help to get more clean teeth. Also, in case you have some stains on your teeth, rubbing of banana on your teeth for a few days will help remove those stains. Rub the banana on your teeth for about two minutes and brush your teeth afterwards.
Use Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar has teeth whitening properties. It can also help removing the stains when used along with baking soda. Do not expect quick results as it may take some time to get your teeth off the stains and make them whiter. Use Apple cider vinegar to wash your mouth 3 times daily.
Use Sea salt
Another way to brush your teeth is with the sea salt. Just liquefy half teaspoon of salt in some water and brush your teeth with it for 3 to 4 minutes. The salt helps to enhance the level of pH of the mouth and hence making it more alkaline. In an alkaline environment no bacteria can stay and survive. Thus sea salt is very effective in flushing out bacteria from your mouth. Sea salt also helps treat mouth sores.
You might have seen your grandmother using Neem sticks to clean their mouth. When there were no toothpastes and fancy teeth cleansing products (which are available in the market nowadays), people used Neem sticks to keep their teeth clean and free from germs.
