Yarrow Mouth Rinse • Less Waste
As promised, when I run out of an essential, I’m replacing it with a Less Waste Product (when possible). As kismet as it could be, the very next essential to go was mouthwash. And a day within running out, @melissacondotta commented on my Instagram about using yarrow for a mouthwash. Thank you Universe!
Therefore I picked up some dried yarrow and made a light infusion out of it to create my mouthwash. I love this herb and always have. Especially topically for skin! But what a perfect herb to use as a mouth rinse for its wound healing, pain relieving, and its massive bacteria killing properties.
2 c Mason Jar (or jar of choice)
2 Tbls Dried Yarrow
2 C water
PROCESS | Place herbs in jar. Bring water to a boil and then pour it over the herbs. Cap the jar and let it steep for four hours. Strain and enjoy as a mouth rinse!
Make sure to follow Zero Waste pioneers that are far more knowledgable about all this than I
Calling totally confused and novice gardeners and composters! There's an online course that shows you how to strategically compost your scraps and trash to grow better food while building large amounts of living soil.
The easiest Less Waste wound healing and bacteria killing mouth rinse. Again, because I'm feeling guilty about my plastic mouthwash bottles ending up in landfills and the ocean when "recycled".
Because I'm feeling far too guilty about the two toothpaste tubes I toss monthly that end up in landfills/ the ocean.
