90 ml of good quality vodka,
10 drops of tincture of myrrh,
10 drops of peppermint oil,
2 drops of lemon juice,
1 drop of tincture of thyme.
Pour the amount of vodka in a bottle of 100ml. Carefully add the essential oils, one by one. Shake the bottle so the ingredients can mix. Apply a label and the mouthwash is ready to be used. To ready a dose for use, mix 2-3 teaspoons of mouthwash with half a glass of warm water and mix well. Now you can use mouthwash made at your house.
