      Natural product that aids oral hygiene and can help relieve sore throats/ mouth ulcers

      This product is advertised as 3 in 1
      It does 3 jobs for the price of 1 or put it another way-
      1- Mouthwash for daily oral hygiene- Put 10 drops in 100ml of water( cool boiled water is recommended)
      2- Mouthwash to help treat mouth ulcers- Put 20 drops in 100ml of water
      3-Mouthwash/gargle to help relieve sore throats and sore gums- Put 20 drops in 100ml of water.

      How to use-
      We then give it a good swish round the mouth and/or have a gargle, depending on which symptom we are treating. Don't forget to spit it out in the sink, its not to be swallowed.

      Easy enough directions, the bit that made me snigger was-

      Tincture of Krameria- krameria extract is used in dental products and is prepared from the root of the precious ratanhy plant (ratanhia). Its used for easing swelling and redness and strengthening the gums.

      This endangered plant is now protected on 5,000 acres of certified organic land.
      Weleda buys 1 ton a year of dried root and in return provides education and a guaranteed fair-market wage for farmers and also creates a sustainable life for the krameria plant.

      Ratanhia is also used in one of Weledas toothpastes - Ratanhia Toothpaste, again to strengthen the gums.

      Myrrh, Clove, Eucalyptus,Geranium,Lavender,Peppermint,and Sage.

      Homeopathic remedies.

      How does it smell?-
      It smells medicinal hence the name -Medicinal Gargle.
      To me it smells like the cough mixtures my Mum always used years ago, I like the smell but can imagine it putting some people off, it is quite strong.

      Who can use it?-
      Its for Adults and Children 6 -12 yrs. Not recommended for younger children, cant imagine any one trying to use it for young children.
      Must shake well
      Can stain clothing so dont be dribbling when your swishing it round your mouth or splashing it everywhere.

      It comes in a dark brown glass bottle (to protect the homeopathic ingredients from the light) with a white label and a touch of pink.
      This is housed in a white box with a touch of pink.
      Cost approx £6.40 for 50ml

      Can be purchased on line and usually in certain independant health stores, Sainsburys sells some Weleda products, but not sure if this is one of them.

      www.weleda.co.uk if you want to have a look.

      The Big Question- did I like it?
      Over-all it was ok, wouldn't be any good for a very bad sore throat or bad ulcers I think you need something more potent and I find the only products that really get rid of ulcers are the gels that you apply straight on them or, if your very brave/ daft (like me) neat salt kills them but boy does it make your eyes water!
      As far as mouthwash goes I prefer a good minty one, they seem to freshen the mouth up best of all.

      Would I buy it again? Probably not.

      How many stars can I award? Probably only 2 overall.

      Thanks for reading my review.
