Recipes - Oral Care

Here is an easy mouthwash recipe.

Some of my favourite essential oils to use are Clove (analgesic, antiseptic, breath freshening), Kanuka & Manuka (antibacterial, antifungal), Lemon (stimulates the immune system, flavour), Myrrh (gum disease), Peppermint & Spearmint (flavour).  Aniseed, Lemongrass, Lime and Sweet Orange are also used for flavour.

90ml water
10ml vegetable glycerine (to help emulsify the essential oils and a natural sweetener)
up to 10 drops of your essential oil selection.

Add ingredients to a glass or HDPE plastic bottle, shake well.
Shake well before use each time. 
Swallowing essential oils is hazardous for your health, so do make sure you do not ingest the oils whilst rinsing out your mouth!
