This potent formula uses alcohol and essential oil of peppermint to create a very concentrated mouthwash. It will cleanse and deodorize with only 1-2 drops, making it very convenient to travel with.
40 drops peppermint essential oil
1 oz. vodka
Pour vodka and essential oil into a small glass jar with a tight-fitting lid. Cap and shake the jar. Place 1-2 drops into mouth and swish around for 10-20 seconds, then spit out. Shake prior to each use. You can also dilute a few drops of Peppermint Breath Freshener into a glass of water for a deodorizing mouth rinse. Yields 1 oz., enough for 50 or more applications.
Variations: For a more antimicrobial product, replace the vodka with myrrh, echinacea, spilanthes or other immune-supporting tincture of choice.
