Can I use the HealThy Mouth Blend as a mouthwash? (Should I use mouthwash?)

Definitely! In fact, we encourage those who prefer to use mouthwash to simply make their own by putting 1­ or 2 drops of HealThy Mouth Blend into an ounce of water and swishing.

Many mouthwashes on the market contain chemicals like alcohol, which have been proven to dry out mucous membranes in the mouth and actually contribute to gum disease.

In contrast, our HealThy Mouth Blend promotes more saliva production, which is very beneficial to maintaining a healthier oral ecology free from the microbes responsible for tooth decay and gum disease.

Here’s a link to a short video that explains the four main ways to use our HealThy Mouth Blend, including how to use it as a mouthwash.

Also, our article Is the Key to Greater Oral Health Already In Your Mouth? examines the importance of saliva, and explains a strategy we can use to maximize the benefits of saliva for our oral health.
