Natural Home Made Mint Mouth Wash

Sugary substances cannot always be held responsible for cavity formation. 

• Bacteria present in the mouth due to poor oral hygiene 

• Dry mouth aka xerostomia (a condition where the mouth does not produce enough saliva which leads to bad breath, dry mouth, dry throat, and even chapped lips) 

• Eating disorders like bulimia and anorexia could be a few other causes.

It is necessary for regular oral hygiene. Besides brushing twice daily, oil pulling once a week and flossing at least once daily, rinsing your mouth with a good mouthwash (that has fluoride) for a few minutes is also very helpful.

Natural Home Made Mint Mouth Wash

But remember mouthwash is not a cure-all. Many brands confirmed that their products have harmful substances, that do more bad than good to the teeth. 

Here I've come up with a natural homemade mouthwash remedy. This was my first time making and I absolutely loved the results I got. I've seen several different ways of making homemade mouth wash on the internet but I wanted to try something new.

Unlike others, I used mint-infused distilled water instead of just regular bottled water. This gave it a different color and taste and of course is more beneficial than the others. 

For this remedy you'll need:

Ingredients

Distilled water- 350ml
Fresh mint leaves- a handful
Mint essential oil- 6-7 drops
Baking soda- 1 tsp
Rock salt- 1 tsp
Vinegar- a few drops (optional)

1. Boil distilled water in a saucepan. Add a handful of fresh green mint leaves. After a minute turn the flame off and cover with a lid. The leaves should not turn black. Let it simmer for about 15-20 minutes.

2. When the water cools down completely, add the remaining ingredients, and stir gently. 

3. Store it into a bottle and use it for about a week. 

NOTE: Mint is a breath freshener and baking soda and salt help in fighting cavity-forming bacteria. Homemade mouthwashes do not have harms but they could certainly be a Lil harsh due to the presence of baking soda and salt. This mouthwash is alcohol-free so its shelf life is short.
