“I use Clove in a a daily mouthwash solution: 16oz glass bottle (used lemonade or coffee bottle) and 2 drops of Clove and 2 drops of On Guard per ounce.

And because it’s safe to swallow, there is no need to stand over a sink for 1-2 minutes; I actually find I rinse longer without the need to spit.” -Glen Richmond
