All Natural Cavity Fighting Mouthwash

How to Make Homemade All-Natural Mouthwash

Mouthwash is a great way to freshen breath, kill bacteria, and promote remineralization. However, some commercial mouthwashes may contain harsh chemicals that can be harmful to your health, and alcohols that dry your mouth out. Natural mouthwashes, on the other hand, can be just as effective without the harmful additives. Here are some natural ingredients that can be used to make a homemade mouthwash:

  1. Baking soda: Baking soda can help neutralize bad breath and whiten teeth. Mix half a teaspoon of baking soda with a glass of water and use it as a mouthwash.
  2. Saltwater: Saltwater can help kill bacteria and soothe sore gums. Mix a teaspoon of salt with a glass of warm water and use it as a mouthwash.
  3. Peppermint oil: Peppermint oil has antibacterial properties and can leave your breath smelling fresh. Mix a few drops of peppermint oil with a glass of water and use it as a mouthwash.
  4. Tea tree oil: Tea tree oil can help kill bacteria and reduce inflammation. Mix a few drops of tea tree oil with a glass of water and use it as a mouthwash.
  5. Aloe vera: Aloe vera has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties and can help soothe sore gums. Mix a tablespoon of aloe vera gel with a glass of water and use it as a mouthwash.

These are just a few examples of natural ingredients that can be used to make an all-natural mouthwash. Experiment with different combinations to find the one that works best for you. Remember to always spit out the mouthwash after use and avoid swallowing it.
