Sophie Uliano's Homemade Mouthwash

(Makes about 6 oz of liquid, so you’ll have some left over for a travel size bottle, or make a larger batch for a bigger bottle)
• 4 oz dark glass bottle • ½ cup aloe vera juice (Trader Joes, Whole Foods or health food store) • ¼ cup distilled water • ½ tbsp witch hazel • 1 tsp baking soda • 10 drops peppermint essential oil • 5 drops clove or tea tree essential oil


  1. Mix the ingredients together in a bowl with a spout (liquid measuring cup works great).
  2. Then, use a whisk to mix together.
  3. Pour into a bottle with the help of a funnel. (If you have a 6 oz. bottle then just add everything to the bottle and shake to mix).
  4. Store for 2 weeks in a dark, cool cupboard.
  5. Use it in the morning and evening. Swish and spit.
