Things you will need:

- 20 oz bottle
30 drops Frankincense essential oil


It is important to take care of our teeth, mouth, and gums. Maintaining good oral and dental hygiene can help prevent tooth decay, gum diseases, and bad breath. It can also help you keep your precious teeth as you get older. 
Like other parts of our body, our mouth is full of bacteria, most of which are harmless. However, without proper oral hygiene, these bacteria will be out of control and can reach levels that can be harmful, leading to oral infections, tooth decay, and gum diseases. Studies have shown that an unhealthy mouth may increase the risk of serious health problems such as heart attack and stroke.


Common Oral Health Issues

Dental Caries

               Dental caries or tooth decay is a major oral health problem among children and adults alike. Tooth decay is caused by the action of acids on the tooth enamel. The acid is produced by sugars in food or drinks that remain in the mouth. When the enamel breaks down, it leads to cavities. Cavities can have serious and lasting complications like pain, tooth abscess, tooth loss, broken teeth, chewing problems, and serious infections. 


               Halitosis is more commonly known as bad breath. In most cases, bad breath is directly related to poor oral hygiene practices. Other factors are smoking, drinking alcohol and dry mouth. Some medications like decongestants, antihistamines, and painkillers can reduce saliva flow leading to dry mouth. Saliva is also needed to neutralize acids produced by bacteria in the mouth. 

Periodontal diseases

               Gingivitis is the mildest form of periodontal disease. It is the inflammation of the gums. It commonly happens when there is a build-up or accumulation of plaque or bacteria on the teeth. A person with gingivitis may have red, puffy gums that bleed easily when brushing. If left untreated, gingivitis can lead to periodontitis or gum disease which is the primary cause of tooth loss among adults. 

Good Oral Hygiene Practices

               The goals of proper oral hygiene are to remove or prevent the formation and accumulation of plaque and tartar, to prevent tooth decay, gum diseases, and bad breath. To protect your oral health, it is necessary to practice good oral hygiene daily.

1. Brush your teeth at least twice a day. Use a soft-bristled brush and just the right amount of fluoride toothpaste.

2. Make it a habit to floss daily to remove food particles stuck between the teeth.

3. Use mouthwash to remove food particles left after brushing and flossing.

4. Do not consume a lot of sweet sugary food.

5. Visit your dentist regularly for cleaning and checkup.

    Using Frankincense Essential Oil

                   Most mouthwashes commercially available contain alcohol. Alcohol causes the initial burning sensation and unpleasant taste. Alcohol also causes dryness in the mouth. Aside from the burning sensation, alcohol in the mouthwash also destroys almost all bacteria on the mouth, even the good ones. All these can contribute to high chances of having bad breath and imbalance of bacteria in the mouth. 

                   Aside from using alcohol-free mouthwash, we can also use essential oil to fight tooth decay and gum disease. Frankincense essential oil is known as an effective disinfectant. It is very useful for oral health. Its strong, pleasant smell can help maintain a fresh-smelling mouth and fight halitosis. The anti-inflammatory properties of frankincense essential oil can ease sensitive gums. Frankincense essential oil also has healing abilities that can eliminate painful canker sores. 

    Frankincense essential oil can be used as a daily rinse method for improving overall oral health. Here’s how to do it:

    1. Get a 20 oz bottle and fill it with water. 

    2. Add 30 drops of Frankincense essential oil

    3. Seal the bottle and shake for 30 seconds. 

    4. Pour one tablespoon into your mouth. 

    5. Swish it around your mouth for 60 seconds and spit it out. Do not swallow. 

                     Rinse with this solution twice a day, preferably every morning and at night to maintain a healthy and fresh-smelling mouth.
