You've heard of the magic of turmeric and all its anti-inflammatory powers. But what about teeth whitening? Yeah, we just caught wind of that one, so we had to test it ourselves. Well, color us surprised because the stuff actually works. Just replace your regular toothpaste with this homemade version a few times a week.

What You Need:
 - 2 tablespoons turmeric
 - 2 tablespoons baking soda
 - 1 tablespoon coconut oil

Step 1: Add the ingredients to a small bowl and stir until well combined into a paste. 

Step 2: Dip the bristles of your toothbrush into the paste and brush as you normally would. Don’t panic if things start to look super yellow.

Step 3: Rinse your mouth thoroughly and enjoy your new dazzling whites.
