Making this mouthwash recipe with essential oils is very simple. Place all the ingredients in a Mason jar and shake until they are mixed. Do not make a large batch of this because essential oils may lose their effectiveness when mixed together over time. I store mine in the refrigerator and swish a tablespoon a day in my mouth after brushing. The baking soda will settle to the bottom of the jar so be sure to shake before using.

  1. Wonderful recipe Ellen, thank you. I will put this in a smaller glass container to save some space in my midget bathroom. Love tea tree oi and peppermint. I consume a lot of vinegar and worry about my teeth so this is good to swish with before brushing. Pin-worthy!
