Traditional mouthwash is usually made with a sharp minty flavor to make our breath smell fresh and pleasant. However, mint only masks the smell and actually feeds odor-causing bacteria with more sugar. Also, most commercial brands of mouthwash mainly consist of synthetic colors, flavors and chemicals that are not so good for you.
Better than masking your breath smell, you can make your own mouthwash at home using natural ingredients that will clean your mouth from the bottom up. This mouthwash is made from ingredients that you likely have at home, so give it a shot (so to speak) and get to know the homemade goodness you've been missing!
Recipe for one small bottle of mouthwash
1. Mix together all of the ingredients and give it a shake.
2. Swish or gargle 1-2 tablespoons of the mouthwash for a minute after brushing your teeth or whenever you want to freshen your breath.
3. Don't use the mouthwash more than once to twice a day (the lemon is very acidic).
Enjoy your fresh breath, clean mouth and take pride in your fantastic homemade mouthwash!
