I have a super simple recipe that I use for my best mouth refresher spray ever! As a heads up, it does use essential oils. I know that many people do not feel comfortable ingesting essential oils, and so if this is you, then this recipe may not be one for you. If you are interested in trying it for yourself, then this is what I do-
Take a 4 oz glass spray bottle. Add 10 drops of Young Living Thieves Dietary Essential Oil. Top the bottle off with filtered water. Shake well. Spritz in your mouth when you feel like having a fresh feeling and fresh breath!
I first started using this spray when I was experiencing some gum and tooth issues and I asked my functional doctor what she would do. She mentioned this spray and how she used it everyday. I was looking for a way to inhibit the growth of the “bad guys” in my mouth without staining my teeth. I knew that due to the nature of essential oils, they work as far as they are needed but do not go overboard, they could help me keep good bacteria while warding off the bad. For more details on essential oils and oral care, check out this detailed article by Dr. Z and Mama Z.
After using this spray for almost a year I have found that I no longer have the tooth and gum sensitivity. A couple of weeks ago I had my bi-annual cleaning and my dentist told me that I should “keep doing whatever I am doing” because my gum measurements and my tooth health was doing so well. So if you are up for trying something super simple and yet super effective, this might be just the thing for you!
