Don’t forget to Like Herbs and Oils Hub on Facebook so you’ll get notified every time we find a great new post about Herbs, Essential Oils and Spices.
This is an excellent article by Kendra on how to create homemade mouthwash flavored with essential oils. There are recipes for Peppermint mouthwash and Orange Spice mouthwash. She also provides measurements to make Myrrh mouthwash and Tea Tree mouthwash. I LOVE the Peppermint mouthwash. It’s light and refreshing and gets the job done. It doesn’t have that heavy, medicinal taste that some commercial mouthwashes have. Peppermint has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antimicrobial, antiseptic and astringent properties. The other thing I really like about Kendra’s article is that she provides a cost breakdown to show the cost savings of making your own mouthwash. Click on the link below to read the full article.
