A Simple and Effective Aromatherapy Mouthwash

Aromatherapy mouthwash recipe

Looking for an aromatherapy mouthwash that tastes great, is made of natural ingredients, and actually gets the job done?

I’ve found that rinsing with peppermint hydrosol is a simple and effective aromatherapy mouthwash. Peppermint hydrosol is great for taking care of your teeth and mouth. (Hydrosols are the pure healing waters produced during essential oil distillation.)

If you love the taste of peppermint, it can be used all on its own for an aromatherapy mouthwash.

If you want a more unique aromatherapy mouthwash, blend a few excellent mouth care hydrosols together. Try peppermint, myrrh and helichrysum.

The method is easy–the usual rinse and spit approach works great! You can also use this mixture during the day to refresh your breath.

Do you have a favorite hydrosol? Please comment below and tell us how you use it (I love comments). Thanks!

This is the blend I use instead of toothpaste, happy to hear any comments/feedback. I put 2-3 drops on my toothbrush after dipping it in a saturated salt solution. I would also normally dab my toothbrush in baking soda before placing the oils but since I ran out, I have just being placing the drops of oil directly on the brush.

To 40 ml of carrier oil – usually olive or sesame
ADD 8 drops of eucalyptus
8 drops of thyme (poss there is a best ‘CT’?
8 drops of myrrh
8 drops of oregano wild 80% caravcol
6 drops of tea tree or manuka
6 drops of peppermint taste mainly)
4 drops ginger
Put 2-3 drops of toothbrush, Its about a 6% dilution

Hello Andrea, I’ve just discovered your blog, YouTube videos and most importantly your Aromahead institute. I love everything. You are a wealth of knowledge. I make handcrafted soap and only use natural and vegan products. I only scent my soap with essential oils and I want to learn how to create a more beneficial soap. Thanks so much for providing so much free information. I plan to become a student of Aromahead institute ASAP. Thanks again.

Hello, I was wondering, aren’t hydrosols, in general, too acidic? Especially for the mouth…
