Turmeric mouthwash recipe

Yes, you read that correctly! Before we lose you, hear us out. While you’d sooner think of turmeric as a curry spice than a form of oral hygiene, its various health benefits can make it highly effective in keeping your teeth and gums healthy.

We all know that good oral care is extremely important, so why not utilise your turmeric powder to its fullest potential? Plus, by making your own you’ll avoid the cost of expensive mouthwash off the counter of your local supermarket or chemist.

Ingredients

  • 10mg of turmeric extract
  • 100ml water
  • (optional) a drop or two of peppermint oil for flavour

Directions

  1. This simple turmeric mouthwash is not complicated. Just stir the turmeric extract into the water and add peppermint oil if desired. Otherwise, simply stir some of the turmeric powder into warm water.
  2. Swish around the mouth for 10 seconds, being sure to cover as much surface area as possible.
  3. Spit into bathroom sink and repeat 2 or 3 times if desired.

Using turmeric as a mouthwash is an excellent way to keep your oral health in check through a natural, inexpensive remedy. If your teeth begin to yellow from the natural colour of the powder, use a baking soda paste combined with water to brush your teeth afterwards. Ensure you thoroughly rinse your teeth afterwards and do not use this paste any more than twice a week.
