Homemade, Natural Mouthwash

Homemade, Natural Mouthwash

Many people do not like the harsh strong taste of commercial mouthwash plus the cost can be very expensive. We found a formula for pH balancing mouthwash you can make right at home.

Directions for Use: • Rinse for 45s-1min and spit • Rinse immediately following acidic or highly sugary meals/snacks (if you brush after meals do this first). Please remember with any mouthwash avoid swallowing while gargling.

Natural MouthWash

Ingredients:
• 8 ounces Tap Water
• 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
• 20 drops Peppermint Oil (or another essential oil to taste – Peppermint works best)
• Optional: 5 teaspoons Xylitol for sweetness (you can find this online or at a local health store)
Warning: Xylitol is poisonous to dogs, so be careful.
These instructions will make 1 cup of an alkaline mouthwash at home (~pH 8). You can always make more if you want!  g.
Shelf-life:
Homemade rinses like this don’t have any of the preservatives you’ll find in store bought rinses and the baking soda in the rebalancing rinse is converted to sodium carbonate after a few days at room temperature. Sodium carbonate is still alkaline, but baking soda is a bit more gentle of an ingredient. If you want your re-balancing rinse fresh, only mix enough at one time to last you 3-4 days.
