One of the cheapest and easiest green items you can add to your home is homemade mouthwash. This vegan homemade mouthwash recipe can be built directly in the bottle for quick mixing and easy clean up. Traditional mouthwash contains a lot of extra ingredients and colors that aren’t needed. Also, if you are sensitive to the alcohol in store bought mouthwash and find that it burns your mouth you will find this homemade mouthwash to be quite refreshing.

The ingredient list is small but mighty. The tea tree oil acts as an anti-infective, bactericide, and fungicide (to name a few). This means it will help prevent any infections and fight off bacteria and fungus that grow in the mouth. The baking soda helps to remove stains and eliminate bad breath. As for the essential oils, you can choose ones you prefer but the most common are peppermint and cinnamon. Everything you need is listed below as well as some of the products I use. Enjoy!
