When in search of a refreshing, homemade mouthwash, this recipe will quickly become your favorite. It is made with potent essential oils from two herbs from the mint family: patchouli, which has anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, astringent, and fungicide properties, and peppermint, which not only offers a refreshing punch, but also is effective in killing pathogens that might lurk in the oral cavity. This refreshing mouthwash also contains baking soda, a frequent addition to oral rinses due to its teeth-whitening effects.
