Natural DIY mouthwash!


Our family motto for selecting hygiene products is “keep it clean and simple”.  I keep this tonic on my kitchen counter for an in-between meals oral rinse and also in my bathroom for brushing my teeth.

With 4 clean and simple ingredients you can make my “famous”  Tooth Tonic.    ~ Dr. Taylor



Spring Water  (8oz)

Xylitol (3Tbsp)

Baking Soda (1Tbsp)

Essential Oil

∗  As with any good recipe, adjust the ingredients to meet your taste preferences — take it easy on the essential oil to start.

Natural DIY Mouthwash Ingredients

The Benefits


  1. Baking soda and xylitol are both basic and can help bring the pH of you mouth from acidic to a healthier alkaline level.
  2. Xylitol is antibacterial and can lower the overall population of the critters that promote tooth decay.
  3. Essential oils add flavor but are often also antiviral, antibacterial and/or antifunal — depending on your selection.
