I had been looking for a nice tasting spearmint mouthwash for several months and tried many, but like none of them. So, I decided to make my own spearmint mouthwash using all natural ingredients that could cleanse my mouth and leave it feeling fresh and clean. It was very easy to make and tasted and worked a lot better than the store brand spearmint mouthwashes.
The natural ingredients I used to make the homemade mouthwash were 2 cups of vodka, 20 drops of spearmint essential oil, 1 cup of aloe vera juice, ½ cup of green tea, 10 drops of Echinacea and goldenseal tincture, and ½ teaspoon of honey. The reason I chose these ingredients to use was because they add a natural spearmint flavor and sweetness and contain antibacterial properties to them that help kill the germs that cause plaque, bad breathe, cavities, gum disease, and mouth sores. They even seem to help get teeth nice and white so your smile can be bright and beautiful. All of the natural ingredients I just mentioned can be found at your local grocery store, herbal store, pharmaceutical store, and the vodka canbe found at your local liquor store. The ingredients can be expensive, but they do make a lot of mouthwash and are good to have on hand.
The way to make the homemade spearmint mouthwash is by pour the 2 cups of vodka, 20 drops of spearmint essential oil, 1 cup of aloe vera juice, ½ cup of green tea, 10 drops of Echinacea and goldenseal tincture, and ½ teaspoon of honey into a glass or plastic bottle. You may use a funnel to help pour the ingredients into the bottle to make it a bit easier. Once you have all the ingredients in the bottle place a cap on it and give the bottle a gentle shake to combined the ingredients. After you will have a nice fresh homemade spearmint mouthwash to use for freshening your whole entire mouth and teeth.
The way I like to use the homemade spearmint mouthwash is by pouring about 2 tablespoons of it into a small mouthwash cup. Then I pour it into my mouth and swish it around for as long as I can. Usually 30 seconds does it. The mouthwash does sting a bit, but it does have a nice cooling spearmint taste that is very refreshing. After I am done swishing the mouthwash around in my mouth I spit it out and my mouth feels very clean. I usually use this mouthwash 3 times a day to help keep my breath and mouth fresh and clean. Plus it helps keep my teeth whiter. I hate having stained teeth. However, you can use this mouthwash as often as you need to without a problem. Just don’t swallow it because you may end up with a little buzz.
For those of you who make this homemade spearmint mouthwash I hope it is easy for you to make. I hope those of you who use the mouthwash like the way it taste and hope it cleanses and refreshes your mouth. I wish you all the best of luck with keeping your teeth white and healthy so you can always have a beautiful smile.
