While nothing can replace daily brushing and flossing, mouthwash can be a great addition to your oral hygiene routine. However, not all mouthwashes are created equal, and some use more questionable ingredients than others. One way to freshen your mouth without the worry is to create your own mouthwash using essential oils instead. Try out our most simple mouthwash recipe below:
Ingredients 10 drops Peppermint oil (also recommended: Myrrh, Cinnamon, or doTERRA On Guard®) 2 cups water Instructions
Add water and essential oil to a 16 ounce dark glass bottle.Shake well before each use. Take small sips and swish. Do not swallow.Because this is simply water and essential oil, this mixture should last for a while. But, you can cut the recipe in half if you would prefer to use it more quickly.
