Tea Tree Oil Mouthwash Spearmint
Here is a more natural alternative to most mouth-washes. I like many of the ingredients in this mouthwash, especially the tea tree oil and the spearmint leaf oil.
But, there are a couple of things I do not like in this mouthwash product. The first is that it comes in a clear plastic bottle, which usually indicates that it was made with BPA, a chemical that is used to make a lot of clear plastic containers and many other products, which research has been linked to many health concerns. The second problem that I have is in the ingredients: 'citric acid'. Even though citric acid is a fairly weak acid, it can still erode tooth enamel.
I'm sorry to sound so negative, but if these things were addressed in this product, then I would be more likely to recommend it. It has potential, because it has some excellent mouthwash ingredients, but the citric acid and clear plastic bottle prevents me from doing so.
Final thoughts: If you want to try a tea tree oil based mouthwash that is priced fairly, and the problems that I have listed in the review do not bother you, then here is an option to consider.

Truly Wash Your Mouth Out!
I've fallen in love with all of the D.E.'s tea-tree products. The mouthwash is wonderfully refreshing & does not leave a harsh or sugary taste in one's mouth. I also use D.E.'s tea-tree toothpaste & floss. The prices are a bit higher than the regular products sold in stores, but never forget that Your Mouth & Teeth Are Worth It! Thanks Swanson for offering a more natural & healthier way to keep one's teeth & gums clean.

Have used this mouthwash for a couple of years. Always makes me feel fresh and clean. I use tea tree oil and neem toothpaste also. Great as a combo!!

This mouth wash is the best.
It is natural, and without sugar or alcohol.
It cleans your mouth without drying it out.

Different is Good
What can you say about using a tea tree mouth wash? It's different. At first it tastes sour, not minty at all. But the biggest surprise was after spitting it out. It left my mouth fresh and spearminty. Also since it's natural, I don't have to worry about accidentally swallowing some of it. I gave the rest of my first bottle to mom, buying more.

I was skeptical about this product, but decided to give it a try, because I have been looking for a natural alternative to regular mouthwash. It was such a good price, that I figured it didn't hurt to test it out. And I'm so glad I did! The initial try was a little strange, just because I am used to being blasted with chemical mint-ness. But after swirling it around in my mouth for a few few seconds, I really liked it. I feel safe using this product everyday or more than once a day, because I know it doesn't have anything that will harm me. And it leaves my mouth feeling cleaning and refreshed. Next time I'm ordering at least 2 bottles!

After four months of use, I went to the dental hygienist who was amazed at how well I was caring for my teeth and gums. I was happy this mouthwash didn't cause a burning sensation in my mouth like other mouthwashes. My mouth feels fresh and clean after use.

Very good ingredients
I think this is the best mouthwash I have found; I've been searching and trying "natural" alternatives for a while now. This one has very good ingredients and it works well.

MY FAVORITE mouthwash ever!
I LOVE Desert Essence for Oral Care products. I've only used their Tea Tree line and I feel refreshed after using the products. I would recommend it to anyone!

This mouthwash is not only natural and free of all the bad stuff (flouride, alcohol, sugar, etc.), but it makes my mouth feel really fresh and clean.

I like the Desert Essence Company and use many of their products. I have stopped using this particular mouthwash due to the inclusion of the ingredient glycerin. Glycerin apparently coats the teeth which is unhealthy for the enamel . If it were not for the glycerin - I would use this product again.

Not toxic and hazardous like most Mouth wash
I like the fact that it doesn't have flouride and alcohol in it...the natural oils are best for oral health. No one needs chemicals to have a clean mouth.
I like this product a lot and hope to see more products like this for oral hygiene

I really like this mouthwash. I started ordering it after my other fave was discontinued :( but this one is also good. My only complaint is that they changed the design of the bottle and I like the old design better. Fresh spearmint flavor and fresh breath! No alcohol :)

It is an average mouthwash that is not offensive, harsh or burning. The taste is bland

A Daily Ritual
Finally a product that has it all! A mouthwash that is refreshing, effective, and economical. And, there's no alcohol, artificial colors, no sweetners. Your mouth is left feeling fresh and minty. Can't do without my daily ritual!

I really like this mouthwash and loves what it does to my teeth. It doesn't have any alcohol in it, which gives it a nice smooth and gentle cleansing. I can actually swish it around in my mouth for a minute or two instead of just barely manage to swish it for 10 seconds like I had to do with Listerine. I also feel like my teeth are becoming stronger by using it, which makes sense, because there aren't any harmful chemicals eroding away the enamel. I also only have to use a little bit, like maybe a capful, if that, which is nice.

The best natural mouthwash
I love all of Desert Essence's products!!! The tea tree oil mouthwash is my #1 though! I am going to school for dental hygiene, and I have not found a mouthwash that is as great as this one! Love the taste, and how natural the ingredients are. It really is efficient and works well. Highly recommended!!

This is the second time I've purchased this product. I like the natural ingredients but the flavor is off for me. Too sweet and the is no hint of tea tree present. I am unsure if I would purchase this product again. However the toothpastes are wonderful!!!! Please consider making this in a different flavor... I want to feel it working and have a refreshingly clean feeling when I use mouthwash.

Great for mouth sores
I have fairly bad gengevitis and i had a mouth ulcer for 2 weeks, flossing and brushing didn't do any good. I have been using this mouthwash for two days and the ulcer is almost gone, and it doesn't hurt anymore! :)

I love this mouthwash because it is the only one that does not burn my mouth. The foil cap may be hard to remove but I simply poked a small hole in it.

Best mouthwash I've ever used!
This mouthwash left my mouth feeling not only clean, but "healed"...so much more so than regular store brands. It's alcohol-free, so it's incredibly soothing, yet very minty and refreshing as well. My only complaint is that the bottle is way too small. I would pay for a larger bottle, so I hope this is something Desert Essence will consider. If you want to take extra care of your teeth and gums, use this! Well done!
