Like our favorite redheaded orphan once chimed, “You’re never fully dressed without a smile.” But sometimes the last thing we want to do is expose the world to our not-so-pearly whites or unpleasant breath.
Between caffeinated beverages, fragrant food and sugary treats, our mouths take a beating on a daily basis… but that shouldn’t stop us from showing off our beautiful smiles whenever the urge strikes!
Although reducing consumption of food and beverages that discolor teeth and effect breath is the most obvious method for maintaining a glamor-shot ready smile, it is also slightly unrealistic (after all, who wants to live in a world without coffee or bagels?). For this reason, there are essential oils that you can incorporate into your regimen to help promote brighter smiles and fresher breath.
This oil is beneficial in fighting bad breath due to the fact that it contains properties that attack germs and microorganisms. Some recent studies have found that Tea Tree may be effective in combatting halitosis and Candida. Tea Tree is an extremely powerful oil, so it is recommended that you add only a drop to an oral rinse.

In a medium bowl, combine coconut oil and baking soda until smooth. In a small bowl, mix the essential oils. Add the essential oils to the other mixture. Once fully combined, transfer to a sealable glass jar. Use at least twice daily and smile brightly!
