DoTerra’s On Guard toothpaste is all natural and fluoride free. It’s a gentle way to whiten teeth and remove plaque, containing no harsh abrasive or alcohol. It includes xylitol as a natural sweetener, which, unlike sugar, isn’t changed in the mouth to acids that cause tooth decay. It can reduce levels of bacteria that cause decay in saliva. This, and the protective blend of wild orange, clove, cinnamon, eucalyptus, and rosemary make it an effective alternative to toothpastes with harsh chemicals that can lead to sores and sensitivity. Plus, it tastes great.

Essential Oil Mouthwash

Regular mouthwash can be made with chemicals and alcohol that may freshen breath in the short term, but kills the good bacteria in your mouth. Essential oils are a natural alternative without harmful side effects. Try this simple recipe:

  • 5-10 drops of Wintergreen or Peppermint essential oil
  • 2 cups filtered or distilled water
  • Dark glass bottle (It preserves the oils and protects them from the effects of light)

      What can essential oils do for someone with acne? Essential oils are a natural alternative to things with harsh chemicals. Doterra’s ClearSkin blend and face wash are an easy fix for someone looking for a quick and effective way to get rid of pimples. Another way to banish acne is to make a blend of essential oils yourself. You can combine melalueca (for its antibacterial properties) with frankincense (promotes cellular health and reduces the look of scars) and lavender (for its soothing and calming effects). You can adjust this depending on your needs and skin type, but an even amount of each oil in a small rollerball will get rid of blemishes in no time.
