I saw the black charcoal teeth whitening thing on Facebook the other day and was about to try it when I found out that the coconut oil I'm now using as body lotion (yes ....it's doing wonders for my eczema) and a hair conditioner (shines and strengthens) may also help with my smile!
And twenty minutes of swishing the it back and forth between my teeth (not gargling like mouthwash)
And wallah my teeth feel shiny and clean even without brushing.
Not to mention piling is supposed to detoxify your body, help more with eczema, sinusitis, energy, and tons of other benefits. I'm going to stick it out for a bit and will let you know how it goes or what I notice.
Helpful hint: don't spit it down the drain after you're done, it can harden and hurt your plumbing. Oh you can cook with it too! I haven't even done that yet!
Any readers ever tried this? What did you notice was improved or not changed at all.

I'm THE worst cook but found something amazingly easy and healthy tonight. I was given a Facebook recipe and used what I had on hand to try to copy it. It's delicious and healthy. I may be addicted.
1 spaghetti squash
Heat oven to 400.
Meanwhile, fork holes into the squash and microwave for 7 minutes.
Cut squash in half, EVOO and pepper/salt to taste.
Put it upside down on a cookie sheet and in the oven while you are slicing and dicing your veggies and cheese.
Flip the squash upright, use a fork to pull the spaghetti like strings and mix your veggies, cheese and balsamic to taste.
Cook in oven 5 mins on broil, turn oven off and 5 more minutes in there.
