Homemade Natural Mouthwash
Prep Time 5 mins
Total Time 5 mins
Makes 250 ml / 8.5 oz


  • 250 ml / 1 cup water preferably filtered
  • ½ teaspoon fine salt rock or sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon olive oil or other carrier oil of choice
  • max. 8 drops essential oils peppermint, clove, tea tree
  • 1 tablespoon xylitol optional


  • Add all ingredients to a container, glass or mason jar (with lid) and shake well. Done.
  • How to use it: shake well before every use. Take a small sip and swish and gargle for about 30 seconds. Spit it out. DON'T swallow it!


  • Don't use coconut oil in this recipe unless it's fractionated. The oil needs to be liquid at all times.
  • I love using 5 drops peppermint and 3 drops clove essential oils.
  • If using clove essential oil only, 3-5 drops are plenty! It's a very strong oil!
