All-Natural Chem-Free Mouthwash - DIY
I just read about the dangers of what actually goes into store-bought mouthwashes. And I only found out about that because of the crazy stuff that I learned goes into tap water! OMG!

So I looked online and found a great recipe online that I am going to try. Thought you would want to get clean and healthy and make it as well. Let me know what you think. Tell me if you try it out.
Ingredients
2 1/2 cups mineral water
1 tsp anise seeds
1 tsp mint leaves
1 tsp rosemary leaves

Directions
1. Mix all ingredients into a pot to a boil.
2. Take off heat and cover with a lid and steep for 10-12 minutes.(Longer will make the water bitter.)
3. Let cool.
4. Bottle in sanitized water bottle.

I hope this simple recipe prods you to make this easy all natural mouthwash and to give it a shot. If you're not inspired then I urge you to research the toxins and chemicals that go into both tap water and store-bought mouthwashes.

@DaniaChicago But there is no proven medical study that shows a regulated amount of fluoride and chlorine in tap water has any negative effects. Arsenic is an entirely different problem where ground water in some areas is contaminated with arsenic. But back to mouthwash. What is wrong with regular alcohol free mouthwashes like ACT? I'm honestly curious
I don't know about medical studies and I may be butting in @TeamWaffles, but whether it's regulated or not, these chemicals are classified as toxic. Why are we allowing toxins into the body? I found this quote regarding fluoride alone, not the other toxins, "If this stuff gets out into the air, it's a pollutant; if it gets into the river, it's a pollutant; if it gets into the lake it's a pollutant; but if it goes right into your drinking water system, it's not a pollutant. That's amazing..." -- Dr. J. William Hirzy, E.P.A.
ACT is something I am not sure about. Its good that it is alcohol free as it can create an environment for bacteria to grow in a dried out mouth. I don't know how to answer your question @teamwaffles. lol I just want to know what is going into my body. And I've just heard too many instances of how bad the chemicals are in tap water. I don't have a document to point you to. So, i guess it's really my opinion.
