Natural Minty Mouthwash

Having fresh breath is wonderful. It makes you confident to talk to people without having to worry about what they’re smelling throughout your conversation.
I have to say that when I changed my lifestyle to cleaner eating I didn’t have the yucky feeling in my mouth anymore so no more chewing gum or minty sweets. I do still love to have fresh breath and using a mouthwash is a nice way to freshen up.

If you have a look at how many ingredients there are on normal mouthwashes, and how many you don’t even know how to pronounce you start to get a little concerned. Now I know you don’t usually swallow the mouthwash but what about your kiddies? They swallow the mouthwash quite regularly and all these potentially toxic chemicals are going into their little bodies. It doesn’t seem like a lot but when you add up those toxins as well as other body care products, house hold cleaners and pollution in the air, there is quite a toxic load going into your system. Making your own mouthwash and reducing even just this little toxic load can go a long way in improving your health.

Chewing on parsley, mint or swirling lemon around your mouth also helps freshen up your breath. But  if you don’t have these on hand then you can make your own mouthwash:

Ingredients:
1.5 glasses of purified water
2 tablespoons of food grade hydrogen peroxide
2-3 drops of mint essential oil
Should you want it sweeter add pure stevia

Pop all the ingredients in your bottle and shake to combine.
To Use: Swirl around in your mouth after brushing your teeth and then rinse with water.

This is such an affordable way to make a non toxic mouthwash.

Fresh breath here we come!
