How to make homemade mouthwash
Did you know that over 90% of the mouthwash that is commercially available contains an acid level comparable to that of household vinegar?
These delightful mouthwashes will help to eliminate bad breath and promote overall mouth and gum health.
Mouthwash recipe using essential oils
• 4 oz. Water
• 4 oz. Vodka
• 4 teaspoons Liquid Glycerine
• 10-12 drops Peppermint or Spearmint Essential Oil
• 5 drops Myrrh (optional - Myrrh can assist in mouth and gum care)
Boil the water and vodka then add the glycerine. Remove from the heat and let cool for 10 minutes. Add the essential oils and let cool for 1/2 hour and bottle. I like to bottle the mouthwash in a clear plastic bottle that has a flip top to make it easy to pour the mouthwash into a small dixie cup for use.
The enamel on your teeth is one of the hardest substances that your body can produce. But acid is one of the most corrosive substances in nature. The study below which was completed in April of 2001 discovered that rinsing your mouth with a mouthwash that contains a high concentration of acid causes a drastic increase in enamel loss.

Wash your mouth with half a glass of warm water containing a teaspoon of table salt.
Rub a lemon rind on your teeth to remove brown stains. Rinse your mouth thoroughly afterward.
Alcohol and Mouthwash
There have been past studies that established a link between the use of mouthwash that contains alcohol and increased rates of oral and oropharyngeal cancers (cancers of the mouth and throat). More recent research, however, has cast doubt on a relationship between mouthwash and cancer.
Even when we try to eat well, we're disadvantaged. The nutritional content of most food has been compromised over the years, not only by deficient soils and modern production, transportation, storage and processing methods, but also by the enormous amounts of chemical and artificial substances added to promote growth, storage life, taste and appearance.
It's for this reason that more and more medical authorities are advocating the use of vitamin and mineral supplements. However, finding them in the right combination can be both confusing and costly.
The nutrition products I am going to recommend you make use of knowledge gained from the botanical world's 6,000 year history. They incorporated health building nutritional herbs with the best modern technology to help our bodies cleanse and detoxify so that the cells - the tiniest living units - can be as fully nourished as possible.
This allows the cells to grow, repair and to perform their functions with the best possible efficiency so that we feel and look better and are more able to prevent and fight disease. Once the body begins to clear itself of toxins it can more efficiently absorb nutrition.
