Dear Dr. Fritz,

Good day. Please call me Yellow Bandana. I just wanted to ask if there’s any way that I could make my teeth whiter using homemade teeth whitener. I looked up products in the market. But, they are quite expensive.

Hope you can help me. Thanks a lot.

Dear Yellow Bandana,

Yes. Teeth whiteners are really expensive. But, I have some good news for you. You can really make teeth whitener at your home – that could very well fit your budget. So, get down to the ingredients below, dear.

1. Turmeric powder

2. Baking soda

3. Coconut oil

4. A bowl

5. A mixing spoon

6. Measuring spoons

7. A jar or container for storing the recipe

Now, if you do have the materials needed – then, let’s get down to work now! Here are the steps that you need to do.

1. Get four tablespoons of dried, turmeric root powder and put them in a bowl.

2. Then, add two teaspoons of baking soda.

3. Now, add 2½ to 3 tablespoons of organic, virgin coconut oil.

4. Mix all the ingredients well with a spoon.

Now, with the recipe above, do the following:

1. Spread 2 teaspoons of the turmeric teeth whitener you have prepared on your toothbrush – as instructed with the last issue.

2. Gently brush your teeth for about 1 to 2 minutes. But, if you can make it three minutes, that would be much better. Studies have shown that effective brushing would need about three minutes.

3. Now, swish the melted coconut oil in your mouth for another minute. After that, spit it out.

4. Rinse your mouth with water.

Oppss, as we are running out of space now, then, let me continue this discussion in my next issue. Until then!
