    Is there another oil that is very similar to “tea tree oil”? I get oils, but do not have that one.

    Dear Dr. Axe, Thank you about homemade mouthwash recipe. I look for mouthwash alternative naturally. I never like chemically mouthwash like crest, etc. Thank you very much again. God bless you richly.

    Awesome recipe! Thanks for sharing it. Personally, I like combining Young Living’s clove and wintergreen oil with the water since I read that these are awesome to combat cavities. =)

    what brand essential oil should we purchase? There seems to be so many choices in certified therapeutic grade? Thanks
