How To Naturally Whiten Your Teeth

Teeth whitening has become a popular trend among people looking to improve their appearance and boost their confidence. However, not everyone wants to use harsh chemicals and procedures to achieve a brighter smile. If you're one of those people, don't worry, there are natural ways to whiten your teeth. Let us show you how to naturally whiten your teeth and achieve a beautiful, healthy smile.

Oil Pulling

Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic practice that involves swishing oil in your mouth for 10-20 minutes. Coconut oil is the most commonly used oil for oil pulling. Coconut oil contains lauric acid, which has antimicrobial properties that can help reduce bacteria in your mouth.

That is why you will find Coconut and coconut oil a major ingredient in our toothpaste Aloe-Ha and Hem-Co. To oil pull, put a tablespoon of coconut oil in your mouth and swish it around for 10-20 minutes. Spit the oil out in the trash (not the sink, as it can clog pipes) and rinse your mouth with water. Repeat this every day for a few weeks to see results.

Baking Soda and Lemon

Baking soda is a natural abrasive that can help remove surface stains on your teeth. Lemon is a natural bleaching agent that can help whiten your teeth. To use baking soda and lemon, mix a small amount of baking soda with enough lemon juice to make a paste. Use a toothbrush to apply the paste to your teeth and leave it on for 1-2 minutes. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with water, and be sure not to leave the paste on your teeth for too long, as it can erode your enamel.

Quick Tip:

To escape the hassle, start using Habbits Natural Teeth Whitening Powder which has baking soda as one of its active ingredients and also has Probiotics and extracts like lemon, tulsi, ginger, coconut, and neem.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar has natural whitening properties and can help remove stains on your teeth. However, it is also highly acidic and can erode your enamel if used too frequently. To use apple cider vinegar, dilute it with water (1:2 ratio) and swish it around in your mouth for a few minutes. Spit it out and rinse your mouth thoroughly with water.

Quick Tip:

Try Habbits Teeth Whitening Charcoal and Spearmint mouthwash if you’re too scared to use vinegar on your teeth.

Activated Charcoal

Activated charcoal is a natural absorbent that can help remove surface stains on your teeth. To use activated charcoal, wet your toothbrush and dip it in the charcoal powder. Brush your teeth gently for 2-3 minutes, then rinse your mouth thoroughly with water.

One reason why activated charcoal is a major ingredient in many of our products.

Eating Crunchy Fruits and Vegetables

Eating crunchy fruits and vegetables like apples, carrots, and celery can help remove surface stains on your teeth. These foods act as natural abrasives and can help scrub away plaque and stains. Additionally, they stimulate saliva production, which can help neutralize the acid in your mouth and prevent tooth decay.


There are many natural ways to whiten your teeth without resorting to harsh chemicals and procedures. By incorporating these methods into your oral care routine, you can achieve a brighter, healthier smile. Remember to be patient and consistent, as natural remedies may take longer to show results than chemical treatments. Keep smiling, and enjoy your newfound confidence!
