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.

Hello! I'm Meliors Simms, the Holistic Tooth Fairy.
As a natural oral health coach I have worked with hundreds of clients worldwide to avoid unnecessary dental procedures and have better experiences with the necessary ones. (Find out about my coaching services here).
After a diverse career (from research to counselling to arts) and a lifetime of terrible teeth, I stumbled on an Alt Oral approach which prevented what would have been my 7th root canal.
That inspired years of independent research and experimentation, eventually resulting in my uniquely holistic approach to oral health.
My new book The Secret Lives of Teeth is a comprehensive guide to healing teeth and gums with metaphysical perspective. Read a sample here for free.
