I love to use Myrrh for its intense cleansing properties. Peppermint for its minty flavor. Melaleuca is commonly known as Tea tree oil and is known for its cleansing, purifying, rejuvenating properties. It also promotes healthy immune function. Clove has been known to cleanse teeth and gums for centuries! Cinnamon Bark has frequently been used to promote oral health and just makes a nice flavorful addition to this mouth rinse! A little goes a long way! Th last addition is purified water. Easy peasy!
