Cleanse your mouth with Essential Oils

Assainir sa bouche avec les Huiles Essentielles

The mouth is a gateway and a permanent bacterial focus. Everyone is therefore keen to take care of their teeth for perfect hygiene.

But who cares about their gums, which are very sensitive to bacterial attacks? Then comes gingivitis and, sometimes worse, chronic periodontitis .

Studies demonstrate a strong link between periodontitis and the risk of cardiovascular accident. More than 50% of the population over the age of fifty would be affected!

Fortunately, certain essential oils can effectively cleanse the mouth and prevent this. But which essential oil mouthwash to use? We'll answer you!

What is periodontitis?

Periodontitis is the often chronic infection of the gums by bacteria. Initially located on dental plaque, the bacteria spread to the alveolar tissues and bones that hold teeth in place and cause inflammation, bleeding and sometimes tooth loss .

However, we cannot see the bacterial outbreaks with the naked eye. Periodontitis and myocardial infarction are sometimes associated.

For what ? Recent studies have proven that people suffering from periodontitis are twice as likely to have a heart attack as healthy people due to the spread of certain bacteria in the body which have a harmful influence on the vascular system and fat synthesis.

Fortunately, the use of essential oil for oral hygiene allows you to prevent or treat these infections naturally. Indeed, essential oil mouthwash is ideal for taking advantage of the synergy between classic antiseptic active ingredients and natural ingredients such as lemon, cloves or even bay leaf.

Concerned, me?

Some warning signs indicate that you are suffering from gum disease : swollen, red, or irritated gums, gums that bleed when brushing or flossing, retracted gums and more visible teeth, loosening of teeth, persistent bad breath, etc. It is essential to consult a dentist very regularly and receive a good diagnosis to avoid any problems in time.

These dental symptoms are not always serious in themselves, but they can become more severe over time and lead to more complications.

Hence the importance of using the right toothpaste and relying on essential oil mouthwash !

Better hygiene with essential oils

Aromatherapy is a tool of choice to fight against bacteria present in the oral sphere. We all know the smell of Clove Essential Oil (Eugenia caryophyllus) well, which is reminiscent of that of the dentist's office of yesteryear who used it a lot to disinfect.

Indeed, dentists of yesteryear used cloves to cleanse and disinfect patients' mouths!

Even though progress has been made in medicine in the treatment of cavities and other dental disorders, the use and action of organic cloves remain very effective.

A few simple steps to cleanse the mouth with essential oils:

As part of natural health , here is how to benefit from all the properties of plants and plants present in nature:

  • Disinfect : add a drop of Tea-Tree essential oil and a drop of lemon to the toothpaste to increase its disinfection power. This procedure can be practiced from the age of 6, once a day, 5 days a week. Maximum cleanliness and whiteness guaranteed!
  • Gingivitis : mouthwashes with Lavender, Tea Tree or Rosemary hydrosol are recommended twice a day. Then, apply 2 to 3 drops of the following mixture (recommended by Dominique Baudoux) using a clean finger and massage the gums.
  • 20 drops CT Melaleuca alternifolia - Tea-Tree ;
  • 12 drops HECT Laurus nobilis - Noble Laurel for infection;
  • 8 drops CET Mentha piperita - Peppermint for breath and pain;
  • 8 drops CT Eucalyptus citriodora - Lemon eucalyptus for inflammation;
  • 10 ml of Nigella Vegetable Oil or, failing that, olive oil;

You get an essential oil mouthwash using natural ingredients.

This plant-based use of plants will allow you to regain a healthy mouth and preserve your oral health in the long term.
