Most people already know that poor dental hygiene can lead to tooth decay and bad breath, but there’s much more to oral health than meets the eye. When we don’t take care of our teeth like we should, we are putting the rest of our body at risk.
Although it might seem strange, our oral health plays an important role in our overall health. Neglecting our teeth means increasing our risk of heart diseases, dementia, breathing problems, and it might even affect preexisting conditions such as diabetes.
When you read the back of any store-bought mouthwash you can immediately see that it has a high concentration of alcohol, along with a bunch of other ingredients you’ve never heard of before. All of them have dangerous side effects and should be avoided.

If you wish to avoid all of these dangerous side effects without giving up the freshness of mouthwash then you should try our natural mouthwash recipe:
2 cups of warm water;
1 and 1/2 ounces of birch sugar;
2 teaspoons of baking soda;
10 drops of peppermint essential oil;
1 empty glass bottle with lid.
Mix all of the ingredients in the glass bottle, close the lid, and shake until the mixture is even and everything has dissolved.
Use it as you would any other mouthwash, every morning after brushing your teeth, and without rinsing afterwards so as not to interfere with the birch sugar.
