Well Scent Sparkle: Natural Teeth Whitening and Whole Mouth Herbal Detox, $35 – This teeth whitener especially appeals to me because its rockstar ingredient is activated coconut charcoal (which gives it a black powdery appearance).

DIY Teeth Whitener – Strawberries (which contain malic acid which helps remove tooth discoloration) + a little baking soda (which acts as a buffer) = natural (and cruelty-free) tooth whitener! It’s fast, it’s cheap, and it’s super easy to whip together.
- 1 ripe strawberry
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
Mash the strawberry and mix it in with the baking soda. Apply the mixture to your teeth using your toothbrush and leave it on for about 5 minutes. Rinse, and then brush your teeth with regular toothpaste to get rid of any gritty strawberry seeds and residue.
