Made this yesterday. It's super inexpensive and it works awesome.

Homemade Natural Mouthwash
Total Time: 5 min.

1 cup filtered or distilled water
1 tsp baking soda
8 drops peppermint oil
4 drops tea tree oil
(optional) vegetable glycerine to taste
Sterilize the container you want to put your mouthwash in by placing the glass vessel in boiling water for a couple of minutes and letting it dry on a clean towel. Place funnel in top of bottle and add baking soda, oils then the water. Replace bottle cap and shake well. It’ll be a little cloudy at first but will clear up in a couple of minutes when the baking soda fully dissolves. If you want a sweeter mouthwash to mask the slight saltiness of the baking soda, add a few drops of vegetable glycerine, shake to mix and taste, adding a few more drops as necessary until you reach your desired sweetness. Then, swish away!
That is ALL you have to do. Crazy easy, right? It works really well, better than conventional, pain-inducing mouthwash in my opinion.
