Homemade Mouthwash

Since I posted my homemade toothpaste recipe, I thought I should post my mouthwash recipe to go with it!

I like this mouthwash because it is gentle and doesn't BURN LIKE CRAZY every time you use it, like most store bought mouthwash. It has a nice fizz to it when you spit it out though, so you know it's working. ;)

Some other benefits are:
  • It's cheap!
  • You know what's in it, because you made it! No preservatives or other harmful chemicals.
  • You can use whatever flavor you want!

Homemade Mouthwash

1 cup hydrogen peroxide
1 cup distilled water
10-15 drops peppermint essential oil (you can try other flavors as well)

Put all ingredients into your desired container. Gently swirl in the container before each use.

I will be trying some new concoctions of mouthwash soon just for fun! I will keep you all posted.

Please let me know what you think of this one. :)

love & light,
