Swap it out Tuesday: if you are looking for a safe alternative to Listerine mouthwash, try Desert Essence tea tree mouthwash. Desert Essence mouthwash is ranked 2 by Skin Deep. This mouthwash cleans the mouth naturally with no harsh burn from alcohol. It is also very refreshing and leaves my mouth very clean. It feels so great to have no stinging, no irritation, or no aftertaste. This will also be safer option for little ones. Desert Essence has other scent if you don't like tea tree oil. They have cool mint, neem, and sprearmint. I started with the 8oz bottle before committed to the 16 oz bottle.The 8 oz costs $6.16 on Amazon. Click here to shop.
