Death Breath Be-Gone Doggy Mouth Spray with Essential Oils

Does your sweet family pooch come up to you and want love and pets but every time he does you want to keel over because of his death breath? It happens around here sometimes and that’s when I know it’s time to break out the death breath be-gone doggy mouth spray with essential oils!

Personally, I find the spray to be easier to use than a doggy toothbrush because my dog doesn’t love the unusual feeling of the bristles on his teeth and gums.

This spray is convenient because, if you use it once a day, every day it will last for a month or longer. Using this spray in your dog’s mouth is beneficial because the bacteria fighting coconut oil is powerful in there and the essential oils can promote fresh breath, clean teeth and gums and reduce plaque build-up around the gum line.

What is FCO?

First, before we talk about essential oils, let’s talk about Fractionated Coconut Oil (FCO.) This type of coconut oil has the long chain triglycerides removed and only the medium chain triglycerides remain, leaving it liquid at room temperature, rather than solid. It’s much easier to work with in its liquid state. You can get a bottle of FCO here.

Why These are the Best Essential Oils for Doggy Breath.

Along with FCO, the essential oils I chose to use in this spray that are most effective for oral health in dogs (and humans) are peppermint, myrrh and cinnamon oil. I’d like to tell you some of their benefits.

Peppermint Essential Oil

This essential oil has 1,8-cineole in it which has been found to have inflammation cooling activity and it is also anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. The monoterpenes in peppermint oil are wonderful disinfectants along with anti-microbial properties that can help freshen breath and kill bacteria.

Myrrh Essential Oil

This essential oil is truly amazing! It has potent antioxidant activity. Its sesquiterpene Curzerene exhibits inhibitory effects against pathogens and has excellent inflammation cooling effects. It supports healthy gum tissue *Do not use this on pregnant dogs or on a dog with diabetes or blood sugar issues. 

Cinnamon Essential Oil

Cinnamon promotes a healthy microbial environment, and due to cinnamaldehyde present in this oil it displays anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. It is great to use for improved oral health!
