Patchouli Mouth Rinse


Patchouli is part of the mint family and pairs well with Peppermint for a simple, effective mouth rinse.

 

Benefits


Baking Soda

Many teeth-whitening products and toothpastes include baking soda because it has the ability to remove minor stains from the teeth. Baking soda is made up of a chemical compound that acts as an abrasive that can help to remove teeth stains, helping your smile look whiter. When using baking soda for teeth-whitening purposes, be aware that too much baking soda can damage tooth enamel—the coating that protects your teeth.

 

Peppermint

Peppermint is commonly used in oral health products for mint flavoring, and to help freshen breath. On its own, Peppermint essential oil can be used to freshen breath, and makes the perfect addition to a homemade mouth rinse.

 

Patchouli

A member of the mint family, Patchouli is a fitting companion for Peppermint oil and baking soda in this recipe, as it is used in many scented products for its distinct aroma. It also has freshening and deodorizing properties.
