One day I woke up and decided that I wanted to make a natural mouthwash that I felt comfortable using. I wanted to be able to read the ingredients and really feel like I was taking care of my body in the most natural way. So I did my research and I decide to make my very own natural mouthwash.
When I say easy, I mean easy to make. All the ingredients are super easy to find. You may have most of them in your kitchen already.
Lizzy’s Easy Natural Mouthwash
2 Tbs Baking Soda
1 Tbs Witch Hazel
1 Cup Aloe Vera Juice
1/2 Cup Distilled Water
20 Drops of Peppermint Oil
Utensils you’ll need (optional)
Empty container ( Don’t go out and buy anything) Recycle people. It ain’t that serious.
Just in case you can’t view the video below, here is what you need to know….
There is no real rhyme or reason to the order that you put the ingredients into the container. I personally like to put the baking soda in 1st. That’s if you’re using a funnel. Otherwise it will clog the spout.
Once you have everything all together, close your container and shake well.
That’s shaken not stirred. :) I just wanted to say that. :) Shaken, not stirred. :) You get it. Ha, Ha (I’m really laughing.) OMG (Shaken Not Stirred Myth Buster Video)
Another thing you need to know is that the Aloe Vera juice should be refrigerated. I only take out a days worth of mouthwash, because I don’t like to swish with cold mouthwash. Don’t leave your mouthwash out for days, it could go rancid.
If you don’t like the fact that you have to keep it cold, you can always switch back to a non natural mouthwash. One that will assuredly have tons of preservatives. Which will have lots of …..bad…stuff in it. Sorry…I had to stick that in. I don’t want to be preach and I will never judge your mouthwash usage unless you have terribly bad breath.
So here is a video showing, exactly how to make your own easy natural mouthwash. Enjoy and let me know what you think by leaving a comment at the end of this post. I will luv you forever.
Natural mouthwash is so easy to make and it makes you feel good too.
