We strive to create recipes that are easy to make, inexpensive, and effective – this mouthwash is all that and even has antibacterial and antifungal properties to help keep bad breath at bay. Here’s all you need to make mouthwash:
- A container – I use a small mason jar
- ½ cup filtered or distilled water
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 2 drops tea tree essential oil
- 2 drops peppermint essential oi
Baking soda will settle to the bottom of the jar when not in use, so be sure to shake mouthwash before each use. Swish about 2-3 teaspoons of this homemade formula in your mouth for a minute or two. As with any mouthwash, try to avoid swallowing this while gargling.
Feel free to double this recipe for a larger batch. Making really big batches is not recommended because the oils will continue to blend over time and flavors can change.
