This refreshing, homemade mouthwash 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 is also effective in killing pathogens that might lurk in the oral cavity. This easy-to-make mouthwash also contains baking soda, a frequent addition to oral rinses due to its teeth-whitening effects.
