Servings: 10 ounces
Author: Joy at Artful Homemaking


  • 1/2 cup 4 oz. purified water
  • 1/2 cup 4 oz 3% hydrogen peroxide
  • 1/4 cup 2 oz. aloe vera juice
  • 4 drops peppermint oil
  • 4 drops spearmint oil
  • 3 drops eucalyptus oil
  • 2 drops rosemary oil
  • 2 drops cinnamon oil
  • 2 drops myrrh oil
  • 1 drop clove oil
  • 1 drop thyme oil
  • 2-4 tsp xylitol


  • Combine all the ingredients (we used a 2-cup glass measuring cup) and stir to thoroughly blend.
  • Pour into a suitable container (glass jar or food-grade non-BPA plastic bottle with flip-top lid.
  • Give the bottle a shake before each use. Use first thing in the morning and swish for 30-60 seconds (the longer the better for antimicrobial activity), then spit. Try to swish mouthwash all over teeth and gums to make sure all parts of the mouth are reached. Rinsing with water afterward is optional.
