Another Homemade Mouthwash

Ingredients:

* 4 oz. Water
* 4 oz. Vodka (vodka may be substituted for water or a pure Rosemary tea infusion)
* 4 teaspoons Liquid Glycerine (available at many drug stores) - optional and simply sweetens the mouthwash
* 10-12 drops Peppermint or Spearmint Essential Oil
* 5 drops Myrrh (optional - Myrrh can assist in mouth and gum care)

Notes: This recipe makes a rather minty mouthwash but as it contains no added flavorings, it is not as sweet or strong as commercially available mouthwashes.

Directions:

Boil the water and vodka then add the glycerine. Remove from the heat and let cool for 10 minutes. Add the essential oils and let cool for 1/2 hour and bottle. I like to bottle the mouthwash in a clear plastic bottle that has a flip top to make it easy to pour the mouthwash into a small dixie cup for use.

Add 10 - 15 drops of Cinnamon essential oil to a cup of water. Shake before each use.

This deceptively simple recipe is actually quite effective since Cinnamon is antiseptic and antibacterial. It also is the best essential oil to use for Garlic breath.

WARNING! Cinnamon Essential Oil can be highly irritating. Patch test before using.

Inspired by Better Basics for the Home, by Annie B. Bond (Three Rivers Press, 1999). http://www.care2.com/

If you drink coffee or tea, or eat certain foods, chances are your teeth are stained and discolored. But commercial tooth-whitening strips are full of chemicals. Try this simple formula instead: it will help you get your teeth pearly white again. It also has antibacterial properties and a gentle abrasive action to make your teeth feel squeaky clean.

Here is the wise and simple formula for whiter, brighter teeth:

INGREDIENTS

* 2 tablespoons dried Sage leaves
* 2 tablespoons sea salt

1. Preheat oven to 250F. Using a spice grinder or a mortar and pestle, grind the salt and Sage together.

2. Spread mixture evenly on a baking sheet and bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Allow to cool, then stir to blend.

Start by combining equal parts of vegetable gylcerine and baking soda to form a paste like tooth paste. Add Peppermint or Spearmint oil for flavouring to taste. (start small) Myrh was also used for it’s antiseptic qualities in oral care, if you can get past the taste.

This is great because it is so natural. It gets away from the flouride and lauryl sulfuate etc in commercial brands. Give it a try!

* 1 tsp. Beeswax
* 1 tsp. Apricot Kernel oil
* 1 tsp. Calendula oil
* a few drops essential oil of Lemon or Orange

Melt the Beeswax. Add the Apricot and Calendula oils, stirring constantly. Remove from heat while stirring, and when partly cooled, add the essential oil. Store in a small pot.

Note: “Using tablespoons, this makes 4 balm jars.” “There are places you can buy empty plastic or glass lip balm jars and I’m sure there are some on the Internet. I have used a clean, empty soup can for the mixing. Be careful that your heat source isn’t too hot. …”
