Breath Spray with dōTERRA Oils

Breath Spray with dōTERRA Oils 0

One of the many benefits of essential oils is their ability to add unique flavor to everyday life. Essential oils taste great in recipes, but can also be used to freshen your breath. Create your own natural breath spray with these two easy steps and carry the power of these oils with you wherever you go.

A few oils we suggest for this DIY are Peppermint, Spearmint, and Cinnamon Bark. Each of these oils has internal benefits and provides a tasty refreshing burst of flavor.

Depending on your preference, each oil provides something unique. Peppermint essential oil has a clean, fresh and minty flavor, while Spearmint oil is minty, slightly fruity, and softer than Peppermint, and Cinnamon oil takes on a warmer, spicy flavor. Try all three, or get creative and make your own combination with other oils safe for internal use.

Ingredients
5 mL glass spray bottle
3–5 drops essential oil
Distilled or filtered water

Instructions

  1. Place 3–5 drops of essential oil into your spray bottle
  2. Fill the remainder of the bottle with distilled water
  3. Shake well to combine and spritz in mouth for a refreshing burst of flavor
