Clove Mouth Wash
Homemade mouth wash.
Using simply boiled water and organic/non-gmo cloves. I had to buy the cloves from an online source.
You place the cloves in a pot, and pour boiling water over the cloves. 1 cup of water, 1 tsp. of cloves. I added some peppermint leaves too (vs. peppermint essential oil). Strain and swish a small amount around in your mouth and spit.
I also read that cloves help relieve sensitive teeth. Ever since my past dentist put in my crowns, I've had sensitive teeth near them. We'll give this mouth wash a "whirl" and see how well it works out (for both reasons).
