I am a big fan of using natural products. I have effectively cut out all of the beauty products in my life that were filled with dangerous chemicals and additives such as lauryl sulfates. I have found that not only are natural products just as effective, they are harmless and even good for you. Take coconut oil for example. I use it as a moisturizer on my skin. It soaks right in and makes my skin look great. Olive oil is another great moisturizer that I use on my face. A couple of drops is all that you need!
Mouthwash is another product that I feel much better about now that I make it myself. Since I started using my own natural mouthwash, my mouth feels cleaner and fresher. No kidding. It is simple to make and inexpensive. And, as with the olive oil on my skin, little goes a long way. I discovered Dr. Christopher’s X-Ceptic extract,an all natural product made from natural herbs in an alcohol base. Alcohol based formulas have a shelf life of several years and are typically more effective than water-based or glycerin based formulas.
2 cups of pure water
4 droppers full of Dr. Christoper’s Xceptic
A few drops of natural peppermint essential oil
Mix all ingredients together in a jar. When ready to use, pour about an ounce of the mouthwash into a glass. Swish around your mouth for several seconds before spitting out. Feel the freshness!
