One of the things I love about using Young Living’s Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils is that I trust their purity so much I’ll even use them in recipes we can “eat.”

My girls and I had fun this morning whipping up a batch of Sweet Breath Sprays for gift giving! Aren’t these bottles adorable???

The recipe can be modified, but if you’re using tiny bottles like mine (.05 ml), I recommend mixing up a larger batch and keeping it in a separate bottle as a “refill” stash. I use the tiny bottles because I don’t like extra weight in my purse, and they’re light enough for my husband to keep in his pocket.

The following recipe makes almost 2 oz. You can use pipettes or an eye dropper to refill your breath spray bottles. Or you can simply use 2 oz. bottles to begin with.

1/4 oz. Vodka (keep in mind, there is more alcohol in your bottle of vanilla than in this recipe)
1 1/2 oz. Purified Water
10 drops YLTG Peppermint Essential Oil*
3 drops YLTG Thieves Essential Oil Blend*
2 drop YLTG Lemon Essential Oil
1-2 drops Stevia or 1 tsp. honey
2 oz. glass spray bottle

Blend together and store in a 2 oz. dark glass spray bottle (available HERE). Spray 1-2 squirts in your mouth for refreshing, clean scented breath!

*I only recommend using Young Living Therapeutic Grade (YLTG) Essential Oils in this recipe, since they are pure enough to be ingested, and since lower quality oils may be toxic.
