Looking after our teeth is an important part of maintaining whole body health. The mouth is a source of harmful bacteria and plaque which can cause cavities and even chronic health issues like heart disease.
Using conventional mouth washes actually breeds bad bacteria because they contain alcohol which dry out the mouth and sugar or artificial sweeteners which are not good for oral hygiene. Luckily there are many natural and house-hold items that we can use to make a mouth wash that whiten and remineralise teeth, and freshens breath.
The xylitol sweetens the mixture and protects against cavities. The mineral powder whitens the teeth and re-mineralises them which should heal and prevent cavities. The essential oils freshen the breathe and whiten teeth. The colloidal silver kills unwanted bacteria.
In a large glass jar, add the water and mix in the mineral powder and xylitol
Add the essential oils and colloidal silver to the mixture
Put the lid on the jar and shake well
Store in the fridge for a few weeks
