Organic Home-made Mouthwash

Mouthwash is a neat little invention. It’s an easy way to feel like your mouth is totally clean and fresh smelling in a matter of seconds…and you can achieve all of this without a toothbrush on hand.

It’s no wonder that mouthwash is so popular. My only question is this: Why should we grow so acquainted with pouring chemicals into our mouths, supporting the production and manufacturing of products that cause pollution, and spending money we don’t have to spend?

There are natural ways to make mouthwash from items you very well may have around the house. Here are a couple recipes. Enjoy!

Organic mouthwash - Spearmint

  • Boil 6 ounces of water and 2 ounces of vodka together.
  • Add in 4 teaspoons of liquid glycerin and 1 teaspoon of aloe vera gel.
  • Remove from heat and let cool.
  • When cooled, add 10-15 drops of Spearmint oil and shake the entire mixture together well.

Organic mouthwash - Rosemary - Mint

  • Boil 2.5 cups of water.
  • Add in 1 teaspoon of fresh mint leaves, 1 teaspoon of rosemary leaves, and 1 teaspoon of anise seeds.
  • Let this boil for about 20 minutes. Once it is cooled, you’ve got your mouthwash!


  1. Mouthwash contains hydrogen peroxide and alcohol that kill germs in your mouth. That's why it's always advised to use it in curing bad breath. I remember when I once had that dreaded problem. My dentist (Tega Cay-based) told me that aside from brushing my teeth regularly, I must floss after eating to remove unwanted debris and gargle with mouthwash to kill germs. If bad breath becomes worse, it's best to visit a professional dentist like what my best friend did. She visited her dentist (Rock Hill-based) for check-ups and medication.
