Add 1 drop to in warm well shaken water, then immediately as a mouthwash and breath freshener.

Better yet mix with Kobashi Soap. Dip tooth brush in Kobashi Soap, drop 1 drop of Bergamot oil and/or 1 drop of peppermint oil and wash your mouth out. Sometimes I squirt some Aloe vera gel on the tooth brush first. It's probably good to alternate with your favourite toothpaste as it's better to always diversify for balance.

In fact, one of Kobashi suppliers said, he does not know of any cases where the workers had any health problems.
