Natural teeth whitener!?



The humble banana, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways… 

1. Natural Teeth Whitener
Rubbing the inside furry skin of the banana across your teeth acts as a natural teeth whitening method! Simply do this every night for around 2 minutes, gargle with salt water and you will see brighter whiter teeth in as soon as 2 weeks!

2. Hair Conditioner
Bananas can restore dry and damaged hair back to it’s shiny and healthy state! Mash a banana and mix with a tablespoon of cream and a tablespoon of honey. Apply the mixture to dry hair and cover with a shower cap or cling wrap. Let it work it’s magic for around an hour and then rinse with shampoo!

3. Headache Cure
Rubbing the inside of a banana peel on your forehead can actually help cure a headache!

4. Natural Fertiliser 
Bananas along with their peels can be used as a homemade fertiliser! Bury them whole in your garden beds, or cut them up and mix in with your garden soil. Your garden will love their high phosphorous and potassium content to help them grow!

5. Mosquito Bite Remedy 
Use the inside of a banana peel to reduce the redness, itch and swelling caused by mosquito bites!
