Conventional mouthwash contains a good deal of alcohol, which alters the natural pH of the mouth. It can also contain harsh detergents and sugars that your body struggles to process like sorbitol and saccharin.
as well as synthetic colors, aroma, and flavorings that alter naturally occurring mouth flora.
so here is a simple DIY recipe to make your own mouth wash!
- 1/2 c. Aloe-Vera juice
- 1/4 c. water
- 1/2 c Witch Hazel hydrosol (floral water)
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 10 drops Peppermint essential oil
Combine the liquids in a bottle. Gently add in the baking soda, being careful that a reaction doesn’t overflow. Add in your drops of peppermint essential oil, cover, and shake vigorously. Store in a cool, dark area for up to 2 weeks.
