Mouthwashes can have many unwanted ingredients for some like fluoride, alcohol and sugars. If you are just trying to get a clean, fresh, minty mouth without the extras, make your own mouthwash.
It’s pretty simple to do. Take a bottle of water, take a couple of sips, to allow some room at the top. Next, add in a teaspoon to 1 1/2 teaspoons of iodized table salt or sea salt. Salt will cleanse the mouth, killing bacterias and healing any wounds from bushing.
After that, add in 1/4 up to 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract for a fresh, minty taste as well as a calming reaction to your system.
Reapply the bottle cap and shake. Swish and gargle, but don’t swallow, just like regular mouthwash. Shake before each use.
Does not need to be refrigerated. Check with doctor, before you try this, if you have high cholesterol, do not use if you can’t have salt.
