Mix a spoon of honey, a spoon of soda and 10 ml of water in a small bowl to get a smooth paste. Apply it to the face and leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse the face with water.
Baking soda instead of a toothpaste: a whitening treatment
This isn’t just a trick to use when you run out of a toothpaste. Use it as a teeth whitener. Mix 2-3 teaspoons of coconut oil with 4-5 teaspoons of baking soda. You can enrich it with a few drops of essential oils (e.g. eucalyptus) if you like. Mix the ingredients well to get a paste.
This brilliant product removes bacteria, whitens the tea and coffee stains, gives you a fresh breath and has an antiseptic effect. Still, you should not use it on a daily basis because baking soda has abrasive properties. Use it once a week instead of your toothpaste. The overuse of this treatment may irritate the gums and cause damage to the enamel.
Mixing a spoon of baking soda with 5 drops of hydrogen peroxide is another good way to make the teeth whiter. You apply the mixture using a toothbrush and let it sit for approx. 5 minutes. After that, you should brush the teeth with a regular toothpaste.
Baking soda & coconut oil to improve the skin
Coconut oil works like the best moisturizer that softens the skin and makes a perfect pick for dry skin.
The combination of baking soda and coconut oil is a natural, gentle treatment that slightly exfoliates and repairs the skin. If your skin is sensitive, use 2 portions of coconut oil for 1 portion of baking soda. The 1:1 ratio is fine for normal and oily skins. Mix the ingredients and apply the blend to the skin. It’s advised to let it sit for a few minutes (10 minutes or so) and then rinse the face using delicate circular motions.
