Herbal Mouthwash

 Parsley, Sage, Marjoram, Thyme & Mint....

These herbs make an effective mouthwash just as a strong infusion. They are astringent, antiseptic and  have cleaning qualities that are great for oral hygiene.

Simply pour boiling water over fresh or dried herbs.Cover tightly with a lid & let sit for 24 hours to infuse.

Strain herbs and store infusion in a lidded jar or cup.
Swoosh around in mouth any time for a soothing, alcohol-free mouthwash.

Also, fresh sage leaf has been used for centuries to clean and freshen breathe.  Try it! Rub the leaf on your gums and teeth. Its antibacterial properties help clean and heal gum inflammation.
