DIY mouthwash - to freshens your breath

Updated: Apr 28

In this post, my husband Roderich and son Julian are showing you how to beat bad breath by making your own mouthwash and use it in a glass bottle, instead of plastic. The DIY mouthwash is easy to make and inexpensive, you only need 4 simple ingredients.

How to make homemade mouthwash (original recipe from Smarticular):

- 500 ml / 2 cups of lukewarm distilled water

- 40 g of Xylitol (birch sugar)*

- 2 teaspoons of baking soda

- 15 drops of peppermint essential oil*

- an empty glass bottle with screw cap (We used the beautiful glass bottle from Veggiology.)


* Xylitol and peppermint oil or tea tree oil can be ordered at Lazada online, or you can find Xylitol at Radiance Wholefoods in Sukhumvit Soi 49.
