DIY mouthwash with spearmint essential oil

Say no to bad breath and cavities!

A common item we all use in our daily routines is mouthwash. It keeps our pearly whites clean and cavity free! But if you’re anything like me, you can’t stand the burning sensation from the alcohol and aren’t too keen on some of the ingredients in your mouthwash either.

I love this recipe because the hydrogen peroxide has bacteria fighting properties and is also known to be an ingredient in most teeth whitening products. The wintergreen and spearmint oils have so many awesome benefits like supporting gum health, freshening breath, a refreshing aroma that can uplift moods and bacteria, virus and fungus fighting properties.
