    Here is a mouthwash you can try:

    Homemade Rosemary-Mint Mouthwash

    2 1/2 cups distilled or mineral water
    1 tsp fresh mint leaves
    1tsp rosemary leaves
    1 tsp anise seeds
    Boil the water, add herbs and seeds, infuse for 20 minutes. Cool, strain and use as a gargle/mouthwash. If you wish to make up a larger quantity, double or triple the recipe then add 1 tsp of tincture of myrrh as a natural preservative.

    Or you can try the old baking soda method of adding half a teaspoon of baking soda to half a glass of water, and use it to gargle – an instant fix for even the worst case of bad breath. It’s inexpensive, there are no harsh chemicals, there is no strong taste, and it’s alcohol-free.

    Here is a simple recipe for Spearmint-flavored mouth wash.

    Boil 6 ounces of water and 2 ounces of vodka together. Add in 4 teaspoons of liquid glycerin and 1 teaspoon of aloe vera gel. Remove from heat and let cool. When cooled, add 10-15 drops of Spearmint oil and shake the entire mixture together well.

    Here’s a recipe I found on a blog published by the Vermont Preppers Network: Mix 2 ounces of water, ¼ teaspoon baking soda or sea salt, 1 drop of pure peppermint essential oil, and 1 drop of pure tea tree essential oil. You can find essential oils at local health food stores. Once the ingredients have been mixed well, swish for 30 seconds and spit. A commenter on the blog mentioned that witch hazel is another good ingredient to use.
