This is also one of the only recipes that I made a trek to find a specific ingredient (aloe juice)- I usually don't like to travel too far or pay a lot of money for my DIY cleaning/hygiene/bath products. I mean, I already make them by hand!
Here's the recipe:
2 parts filtered water (I used 1 cup measurements)
1 part aloe juice
1 part hydrogen peroxide
12-15 drops of peppermint essential oil (for 1 cup measurements- add more or less depending on what measurement you use.)
Seal-able glass container (I got this carafe from Walmart for $4- no plastic!)
Then , you just pour all the ingredients into your container and swirl it around for good measure. This recipe is for Swishing, not Swallowing! Although, if you emitted the Hydrogen peroxide you could drink it. (This is one reason why I like to make my own products. If I clean with baking soda and vinegar around the house, there is no danger of my dog poisoning itself by ingesting chemicals- I'm sure the same could be applied to babies.)
