I was in pain. No matter what I did, my mouth hurt. To be specific, the gums in the upper left of my mouth. The dentist recommended I use that super strong antiseptic mouthwash. You know the one, the one that grays you teeth if you even look at coffee. And since I can’t whiten my teeth due to my gums, I wanted to stay faaaaar away from that antiseptic mouthwash!
What I did instead was make my own mouthwash with Essential Oils, baking soda and an old marmalade jar. It’s so good that when I rinse my mouth before bed, my teeth aren’t fuzzy the next morning!
Here’s the recipe:
Directions: put a pinch of baking soda in a 250 gram jar. Drop the Essential Oils into the baking soda (to aid in dispersion. Then fill with distilled water. Shake before use and store in the refrigerator. (Lasts about 3 weeks in the fridge.)
If you have any questions, just let me know. Happy swishing!
