Essential Oil Mouthwash

Essential Oil Mouthwash

You use Essential Oils for so many things in your life, you might be wondering… how can I use them for oral health? Believe it or not, it’s very easy.  You can create an everyday use, natural mouthwash to help kill germs, prevent infection, and promote overall healthy mouth and gums. Here is an easy recipe to make for daily use. Keep in mind, salt is not technically a carrier/emulsifier, but when used in this type of recipe where you are rinsing quickly and then spitting it out, it will work well. We like salt in this situation too because it inhibits bacteria and encourages healing.

1 C Warm Water
½ tsp Salt

1 Drop Tea Tree Essential Oil
1 Drop Myrrh Essential Oil
1 Drop Peppermint Essential Oil

In a glass, add your Essential Oils to the salt and mix together. Pour in the warm water and stir to help dilute. Rinse well for 20-30 seconds and spit.
