Sage mouth rinse for healthy gums
Rinsing your mouth daily with a solution of sage tea and sea salt helps prevent gum disease. Both sage and sea salt are mildly antiseptic, relieve inflammation, and promote healing. Because they are astringent, they also help tighten gum tissue.
1c (250ml) boiling water
2tsp dried sage
1/2 tsp sea salt
Pour the boiling water over the sage, cover, and steep for 15 minutes. Strain, add the sea salt, and cool to lukewarm. Using approximately a quarter of a cup (60ml), swish the mixture around your mouth after brushing your teeth. Use the rest of the mouthwash within two days. (x)
