This pepperminty mouthwash will fight bacteria and give you fresh breath for hours. If you’re like me you’re not fond of commercial mouthwashes (ethanol has been linked to mouth cancer) but want to keep your mouth free of germs and tasting great, give this four-ingredient recipe a try.
To kill off germs, swish and hold the solution in your mouth for a minute. This takes a little getting used to as clove essential oil has a very strong taste.
Make a larger quantity by quadrupling the recipe, store in a sealed blue bottle (a blue bottle will ensure the longevity of the colloidal silver) in the dark. I like mine in a pump bottle as one pump into a little cup is the right amount for swilling.
DIY Natural Mouthwash
30ml Warm Water
2 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
Mix together and then swish around your mouth, hold for ten seconds and spit out, do this twice.
Do not swallow this solution. Do not refrigerate (this will inactivate the colloidal silver), store in the dark.
