DIY: Natural Mouthwash

Using a mouthwash is part of a daily routine of oral hygiene. However, lots of them are full of chemicals such as limonene and PEG.

Making your own mouthwash is cheap and simple. You can find lots of mouthwash recipes online but here is my favourite one.

Ingredients:
– Sodium bicarbonate
– Water
– Tea Tree Oil
– Peppermint oil

Tools:
– A mug
– A small dark color glass bottle
– A funnel

Directions:
1) Put one teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate in a mug
2) Heat up some water and pour it into the mug – Fill it up.

3) Add one drop of tea tree oil and one drop of peppermint oil

4) Mix it and swish for 30 seconds, then spit it out

Pour what is left over into a small dark color glass bottle. If you leave it in the fridge you can use it for up to 3 days.

Tips:
If you do not have any mouthwash, you can also use a sage leaf. Use it on your teeth as you would use an eraser. It will keep your mouth fresh.
