Did you know that commercial mouthwashes do more harm than good! The harsh ingredients found in regular mouthwash formulas destroy all bacteria in your mouth- even the good bacteria that you need to fight toxins.
If you still want to have a fresh mouth feel, you only need essential oils, filtered water, and baking soda to make a powerful DIY mouthwash.
Essential oils like tea tree and peppermint naturally fight bacterial infections and kill oral pathogens while nurturing tissue regeneration. As a result, essential oils offer a safe, natural, and powerful way to counteract gingivitis, reduce inflammation, and prevent the conditions that plaque and tartar love.
Blend the following ingredients to make your own remineralizing mouthwash:
- 2 drops tea tree essential oil
- 2 drops peppermint essential oil
- ½ cup of filtered water
- pinch of Himalayan sea salt
- 2 tsp baking soda
**If using salt, heat water and dissolve the salt, let cool. Add baking soda and essential oils.
Just swish and spit twice a day to get rid of unwanted plaque and keep your smile shiney. This recipe will not hurt your good bacteria and it's also kid-friendly...
