I used to use those horrid teeth whitening strips. You know the ones I’m talking about.

I don’t know about you but they left me in complete and total pain!

If the wind blew, that was enough pressure to drive me mad. Not to mention the fact that I could never get them to stick.

And that I felt like I shouldn’t really swallow cause, heck, who knows what’s on those things anyways?

To get back to the point (was I ever on it in the first place? Oops!) I’ve been using an all-natural, super easy DIY teeth whitening paste for awhile now and have seen great results!

Did I mention it was easy?


We don’t need any unhealthy, crazy chemicals to keep our teeth white.

Nor do we need to drop major money on expensive teeth whitening products!

We can easily make our own natural teeth whitening paste at home with just a few simple ingredients.

This paste is made with just 3 ingredients, two of which are well-known for their teeth whitening benefits — in fact, many whitening toothpastes, mouth washes, whitening strips, etc. etc. contain one or both of them.

Baking soda

Baking soda teeth whitening pastes are tried-and-true. A number of studies (like this one, this one, and this one) have found that toothpaste with baking soda whitens teeth more effectively than toothpastes without baking soda.

Not only does baking soda gently polish away stains on teeth, but studies have found that it also helps kill unhealthy bacteria and prevent plaque build-up by creating an alkaline environment in your mouth (a very big bonus!).

Hydrogen peroxide

Hydrogen peroxide teeth whitening strips and mouthwashes are also popular and for good reason: peroxide is a natural bleaching agent and helps to improve gum health by keeping unhealthy bacteria under control (source).

Peppermint essential oil

Not only does peppermint essential oil provide flavor and freshen breath, but it also helps fight bacteria.

No, it doesn’t help whiten teeth so if you don’t have it, no worries! You can leave it out.


All-Natural DIY Teeth Whitening Paste

Ingredients:

*Food grade hydrogen peroxide differs greatly from the run-of-the-mill hydrogen peroxide found in the drugstore, which is not safe to ingest as it contains many heavy metals.

Directions:

  • Mix the baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, and essential oil into a smooth paste.
  • Dip your toothbrush in the paste and brush *gently* for about 2 minutes before brushing with regular toothpaste.
  • Use no more than once a week, since baking soda is an abrasive and you don’t want to damage that enamel!

  1. I accidentally bought Food Grade 35% Hydrogen Peroxide. Can I still use it, perhaps in a smaller amount? Or should I buy the 3%?

  2. It can be kind of hard to get them to mix into a paste (did you baking soda settle to the bottom)? You can add more baking soda if you’d like.

  3. I tried this recipe and it was very runny… So I used 1 Tbsp baking soda and 1 Tsp food grade peroxide with a few drops of peppermint oil. Seems to be the perfect consistency. Is it suppose to be runny?

  4. I was told that if you cut the hydrogen peroxide 50/50 with water that its a safer option. again this will take a while 2-3 weeks to see results but I feel its gentler on your teeth than the store bought white stripes.

  5. I’ve never used hydrogen peroxide, what I usually use is the baking soda with the lemon juice extract. It is somehow effective. I think I’ll just stick to this paste.

  6. I asked my dentist about this and he said both baking soda and charcoal can take off your enamel. Lemon juice is to acidic. He recommends the strips once every 6 months. I am all for natural and wanted to share with others.

  7. Ok- feeling a lot better about the white reaction after reading this! A skin patch test is a great suggestion being that I do have skin on the more sensitive side. The possibility of brushing too hard with granular baking soda makes a lot of sense too.
    Otherwise my teeth are definitely noticeably whiter! Thank you for responding!

  8. Oh no! Hydrogen peroxide bubbles and turns white when it comes into contact with bacteria. Since the mouth is full of bacteria, I’d imagine this is what you are seeing. As for the bleeding, I don’t know – I’d say maybe brushing too hard (which combined with the granular baking soda could irritate your gums) or maybe you’re just sensitive to baking soda. Do you ever used baking soda on your skin – are you sensitive to it?

  9. Did anyone have a bad reaction with their gums using this teeth whitening method? My gums turned white in some spots, and bled! They were sore for a couple days but now back to normal. This can’t be good.. Please help!
