DIY Herbal Mouthwash Recipe

how to make herbal mouthwash recipe ingredientsSometimes you want an organic herbal mouthwash made with natural ingredients. This mouthwash recipe has worked in my household for minor mouth sores, after a tonsillectomy, and after dental surgery, not to mention all varieties of colds and the flu as well.

In short, my family swears by this stuff. Who am I to argue? Not only that, it’s a sure winner as a stocking stuffer. (hint, hint.)

My goal is a mouthwash that’s antiseptic and antibacterial without fillers or sugar. This is the basic recipe I use. Modify it to your heart’s content.

My DIY Herbal Mouthwash Recipe
    2 oz vodka
    20 drops propolis extract
    10 drops myrrh extract
    2 drops thyme extract
    1 drop tea tree oil
    [ cherry bitters to taste ]

Store in glass containers.

how to make your own mouthwashI use water & alcohol extracts instead of essential oils of everything except the tea tree oil. A little gentler compared to using essential oils especially if there are open sores or sensitive tissue involved.

Note: this mouthwash is made to be mixed with water 1:1 or even 2:1. I don’t recommend using it undiluted. Rinse and spit this mouthwash out. Do not swallow it. Because it contains propolis, made by bees, if you have allergies test a small portion before using or avoid this altogether. You can make a mouthwash without propolis if you have allergies.

Healthcare is a right not a privilege.
