I never have mouthwash and I always wish that I did. My youngest sister started making her own (along with shampoo, conditioner, laundry soap, face cleaner, and some other things). Being inspired I thought that I two could make my own mouth wash. She gave me some peppermint and tea tree essential oils to get started. Because I am pregnant I am unable to use the tea tree oil for anything that would be consumed but will find some other ways to put it to good use!
I found several good sounding recipes for homemade mouthwash BreathMD.com This is the recipe that I based mine on
Baking Soda Mouthwash
- 1 cup of water
- 1 tsp of baking soda
- 4 drops of pure peppermint oil
- 4 drops of tea tree oil
- Mix ingredients
I left out the tea tree oil because I am unable to use it at this time.
Turns out that my little jelly jar holds a cup so I will not have to
measure that every time! My 6 year old daughter and I both tried it I liked it
a lot! My 6 year old told me it was like magic!! If that is not a good review I don’t
knww what is.
NOTE: Just had a friend of mine that is a dental hygienist tell me that this is good stuff! That makes me happy.
