- Spearmint essential oil (Mentha spicata) - 10 drops
- Tea Tree essential oil (Melaleuca alternifolia) - 5 drops

Mixing Instructions: In a 250 ml dark glass bottle, combine the essential oils. Add the distilled water. Close the bottle and shake well to mix the ingredients. Shake well before each use and swish a small amount in your mouth for 30 seconds before spitting it out.
Undiluted essential oils can be added pure, drop by drop, directly into your special diffuser as per manufacturer or recipe directions. Always wash your hands thoroughly with a soft soap after manipulating essential oils. Avoid contact with eyes and mucous membrane. Keep your diffuser (and its cords) away from the reach of children and pets. See safety uses page.
But, applying 100% pure, undiluted oils directly to the skin may cause irritation or adverse reactions. It is crucial therefore, to always dilute 100% pure essential oils with an adequate carrier for and before any skin contact uses.
To conduct a patch test: dilute a small amount of the essential oil in a carrier oil and apply it to a small area of your skin. Wait for 24 hours to observe any signs of redness, itching, or irritation.
If you experience any adverse reactions, discontinue use immediately and consult a healthcare professional. Remember, essential oils are highly concentrated plant extracts and should be used with caution to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.
