This mouthwash will leave your mouth feeling spicy and clean. Bonus – it’s as easy to make as a cup of hot tea! Clove buds are found in the spice section of your local grocer. They work great in this recipe because of their strong antiseptic properties.

When my oldest was a baby, I really started looking at the ingredients in items we bought to use in and on our bodies.

I started making our own personal care products like body scrubs, lotion, and deodorant, which was frugal and a better choice for our family.

Next, I tried my hand at bug spray, sunscreen, and lip balm.

The easier, the better.

This simple clove mouthwash is great because it only uses two ingredients you already have in your pantry.

How long can it stay out for?

I make small batches so we go through it in 2 weeks. I don't think it will go bad but it could lose its potency.
