Make a simple natural mouthwash

This simple natural mouthwash is excellent for any kind of gum problem including receding gums, bleeding gums, gingivitis, gum disease, and even periodontal disease.

To make a sage rinse, cover a handful of fresh or tablespoon of dried sage with boiling spring water, steep in a teapot or jar  for 4-8 hours, then strain into a jar to keep in the bathroom. Swish a mouthful around after your daily brushing, then spit.

Use the herbal rinse instead of an alcohol based mouthwash because, aside from being very drying, alcohol-based mouthwashes are known to cause oral cancer.
