Add the flat water and the floral water and mix well. Finally add the preservative and mix again. The solution is transferred to the dedicated bottle, sealed and left to synergize until the next day.

The result is a strong mouthwash with antibacterial and antiseptic properties, without alcohol. Refreshes the oral cavity, soothes inflamed gums, is refreshing and ensures a fresh breath.
It is used like any other mouthwash. Shake the bottle before use!

The quantity of essential oils in the recipe can be reduced for those who do not like the strong aroma: peppermint 10 drops, clove leaf 1-2 drops. Some, or all of the peppermint essential oil can be replaced with sage, myrrh or tea tree essential oil (3-4 drops).
