If you are like me, you probably aren’t really into those mouth rinses at the store that completely burn the inside of your mouth! My eyes use to water and my throat would sting afterwards. Not cool! That’s because of the high amount of alcohol in most of those products but what is just as bad is that those artificial colors are totally not good for your health. Why does mouthwash need to be blue or green anyways? I have a completely alcohol free/dye free homemade natural mouthwash recipe to share with you. It’s safe and clean! The ingredients are very simple and the taste is actually really great thanks to the lemon and peppermint essential oils! This DIY mouth rinse doesn’t burn at all and it leaves you with a fresh clean, feeling.
DIY Natural Mouthwash Tutorial
Ingredients/Supplies Needed for Homemade Natural Mouthwash Recipe:
- 8oz Medical Grade Plastic Bottle or Glass Bottle
- Distilled Water
- Young Living Lemon, Peppermint, Clove and Cinnamon Essential Oils (I specify Young Living Essential Oils because those are the only ones I trust when it comes to the possibility of ingesting any of the essential oil.)
- Stevia (optional)
How To Make All Natural Mouthwash Recipe:
Gather your supplies and head to the kitchen or bathroom counter.
Start with your plastic bottle and water. Measure out 7 ounces of your distilled water and pour into bottle.
After the water is added, grab your essential oils. You are going to add 5 drops of Lemon, 5 drops of Peppermint, 5 drops of Cinnamon and 5 drops of Clove. These essential oils have antibacterial and antiviral properties that will clean your mouth for fresh breath and good oral hygiene.
You can add a few drops of Stevia to sweeten the mouth rinse if it’s a little too strong for your liking.
Screw the top back on your plastic bottle, give it a shake and you are ready to use your DIY mouth rinse. Swish it around in your mouth for 30-45 seconds.
Give the bottle of homemade natural mouthwash recipe a good shake before each use.
