Sarah Powell of Lilith’s Apothecary recently posted about a herbal tooth whitener. My sister used to brush her teeth with baking soda and I remember that it really did whiten her teeth. I also read about using strawberries to whiten teeth in an email I received from

Herbal Tooth Whitener:
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp 3% hydrogen peroxide
Dip toothbrush into the mixture and brush for three minutes, then rinse thoroughly. Follow with regular tooth paste or herbal mouth rinse.

Strawberry Whitener:
To lighten tooth stains and whiten your teeth, crush a fresh strawberry and rub it onto your teeth. The natural alpha-hydroxy acids found in strawberry should help lighten teeth. Follow by rinsing with water.
