The Top Essential Oils for Oral Health

I've been actively using essential oils for nearly two years now.  When I first got started, I was completely overwhelmed but also eager to start incorporating essential oils into every aspect of my life.  Today I have the first of a few posts outlining different routines you can totally make over with essential oils!

Oral health has to be one of the easiest routines to makeover especially when you snatch up a starter kit so that's what I want to break down for you in this post.  A big part of my personal growth this year was to move into a better, non-toxic way of living.  This included switching out my personal care products as I was able and a great place to start was with the products we use first thing in the morning!  So here is a quick guide to making over your dental hygiene routine super simply:

Essential Oils for Oral Health

There are a couple of oils that are perfect for maintaining your oral health.  Quite a few are included in the Family Essentials & Home Essentials starter kits but here is a full list:

Add Peppermint, Clove, Melaleuca, and On Guard to 2 tbs sea salt in warm water & use as a mouth rinse.  I find Peppermint to be super overwhelming so personally I'd only add a drop.  You'll get fresh breath plus the cleansing benefits of Melaleuca & On Guard!

Suffering from any mouth irritations?  Melissa is a great oil to zap any thing that might show up on the outside of your mouth around the lip line.  On Guard can help there too!  Both Myrrh and Clove can help relieve the irritation inside of the mouth.

Clove, Myrrh, and On Guard are also great to add to your toothbrush before brushing!  Place a drop of one of these oils on the bristles then add toothpaste and brush away.

Cleanse your toothbrush, retainer, or mouth guard in a class of water + a few drops of On GuardStore your toothbrushes in a cutlery tray tucked away in a drawer to avoid any contamination from the environment.

DoTERRA also offers a few other products that make switching personal care products super easy.  When I first started out on this journey I found it easier to use premade products rather than making my own.  DIY can be great but sometimes we just want to have it done for us!

The On Guard protective blend can be found in quite a few products including the whitening toothpaste & new mouthwashI love the whitening toothpaste because it tastes great and leaves my mouth actually feeling clean.  Other non-toxic/natural toothpastes have left my mouth feeling blah but this toothpaste really achieves the fresh and clean feel. I can't wait to try the On Guard mouthwash either.  An alcohol-free mouthwash featuring the On Guard protective blend is going to be the perfect compliment to my routine!

Ease of use means you're actually going to implement these products into your daily routine and starting with something you do everyday means you'll gain confidence in using essential oils!  If you want more info about the Top 10 Essential Oils download the free ebook below!
