DIY Mouthwash

Our beautiful buddy Tina Fitzloff with Wellness by Design shared this mouthwash recipe with us at a make and take, and she gave us permission to share it with all of you! This recipe was actually made in a Ningxia Red bottle. How's that for smart upcycling? Here are the simple ingredients Tina used. You can make this right now!!

1 tsp salt (pink Himalayan if you have it!)
1 1/2 tsp of baking soda
Young Living Essential Oils of your liking...

Tina says, "I like clove or Thieves, peppermint, orange, and Melrose. I use about 5 drops of each, but sometimes that can be too much on the peppermint for some people."  :) So if you're a new oiler, try a little less peppermint to start. Tina had her dry ingredients in ziploc bags and simply snipped a corner off to neatly pour them into her bottle. The oils went in next, and then Tina topped it off with filtered water. That's it! If you are DIYing in a different bottle, know that the Ningxia Red bottle holds approximately 3 cups of water and adjust your recipe as needed.

SO simple! Why spend wads of cash on the fake colors and alcohol? Really! I learned a lot about what our oils can do by studying the back of a storebought mouthwash that I'm just about throw away. LOL. More on that here:
