Antiseptic Mouthwash Formula

Here is a simple way to have fresh breath and reduce the microbe population in your mouth, naturally. Avoid the harsh chemical ingredients, synthetic flavors, and artificial dyes found in most commercial mouthwashes and try this effective formula instead. Sweeter breath, here:


3-4 drops essential oil of clove (a natural antimicrobial)
4 ounces water

Combine and swish the formula in your mouth for 30 seconds or more, then spit it out.

Inspired by 50 Simple Ways to Pamper Yourself, by Stephanie Tourles (Storey Books, 1999).
