Store-bought mouthwashes often contain lots of ingredients and sometimes even toxic chemicals. If you are looking for more natural, non-toxic ingredients in your mouthwash, here's how to easily make your own with just a few ingredients that you may already have in your pantry.
Things You'll Need
Add 2 tablespoons of baking soda to 2 cups of distilled water.
Add 8 drops of peppermint essential oil.
Add 8 drops of tea tree essential oil.
Store the mouthwash in an airtight container like a glass jar or bottle.
Shake well before each use. There are no chemical binders in this mouthwash recipe, so the baking soda will most likely sink to the bottom.
How to Use Homemade Non-Toxic Mouthwash
To use this mouthwash, swish 2-3 teaspoons in your mouth from 1 to 2 minutes, then spit out and rinse your sink.
