Zeolite Mouthwash

Using zeolite water as a mouthwash and gargle is a very natural way to keep your mouth and breath fresh. It is very helpful for soothing irritated or inflamed gums, getting rid of bad breath and soothing mild toothaches. Zeolite has a slightly alkaline pH level and is bacteriostatic so limits the growth and proliferation of microbes.

Another reason to keep your gums healthy is the relationship between gum disease and Alzheimer’s disease. In January 2019 Science Advances released a research article on this topic.

To make a zeolite mouthwash, simply mix 1 teaspoon of zeolite with one glass of water

Acid Forming Foods

To avoid irritated gums, rinse your mouth thoroughly after indulging in acid forming foods.

Amalgam Fillings

Rinsing your mouth throughout the day with zeolite mouthwash, especially after brushing your teeth, is very important if you have amalgam fillings, as brushing may release mercury into your mouth. So does chewing and consuming hot drinks, so rinse your mouth with zeolite water afterwards.

Bad Breath

Rinse your mouth and gargle with zeolite water whenever necessary, especially before going to bed and in the morning or after eating strong smelling foods like garlic and salmon. Smoker’s breath is also improved by using zeolite mouthwash after every cigarette.

Brushing Your Teeth

After cleaning your teeth, swirl zeolite water around your mouth then spit it out. Repeat and then have another mouthful to use as a gargle and one more to swallow to take up any mercury which may have been swallowed. Doing this will help to trap and remove any chemicals contained in your toothpaste and will leave your mouth very clean and fresh. You will also find that your breath is fresher in the morning.

Gum Problems

Zeolite’s bacteriostatic, fungistatic and virostatic actions will help to keep your mouth fresh, I know it works well for me and my husband.

We always have a glass of zeolite water on hand so we can rinse our mouths with it frequently, especially after eating acid forming foods or having a cup of tea as we each still have a couple of amalgam fillings.

I used to have gum disease years ago but after rinsing my mouth with zeolite water regularly for so long, the disease has cleared up and my gums are now healthy. A tooth which was beginning to move became firm again after packing it with thick zeolite mud regularly for a few weeks. Five years later it is still solid. Zeolite has greatly improved my dental and oral health.

Hangover Cure

Rinse your mouth with the mouthwash and gargle several times to get rid of the nasty taste in your mouth, then stir the sediment back into the water and drink it. Repeat in an hour or two, drink plenty of water in between. To help prevent a hangover, drink a glass of zeolite water before consuming alcohol. People who have tried this have said they felt better than they normally would the next day.

Mouth Ulcers

Rinse your mouth frequently and hold the zeolite water in your mouth over the ulcer for as long as possible. Also apply a thick dob of zeolite mud directly to the ulcer. The mud will gradually dissolve, giving you an extra dose of zeolite as well as helping to relieve the ulcer.

Pulling Technique

Rather than using coconut oil in the oil pulling technique, use zeolite water instead as it has no taste, it is detoxifying and is more pleasant to use than oil. If you haven’t heard about oil pulling, there is plenty of information online.


Rinse your mouth and lips thoroughly after every cigarette, also gargle. This will help to trap and hold the harmful chemicals and heavy metals contained in cigarettes. Rinsing your mouth will also help to reduce the odour of smoker’s breath. Drinking some zeolite water after every cigarette would also be very beneficial.

Sore Throat

Gargle with zeolite water at the first sign of a sore throat. Repeat when necessary until soreness is relieved. If you gargle with zeolite water at the first sign of a sore throat, the chances are that it will not develop any further. You could also drink a glass of zeolite water. I haven’t heard of this method failing yet.


  • Hi Sandy, I don’t know about the decay problem with your teeth but using zeolite water as a mouth wash 3 or 4 times a day fixed my gum disease problem and a tooth which was becoming loose solidified after applying thick zeolite mud to it for a few days. I use zeolite mouthwash every day to help reduce bacteria.

  • Hello. I am eager to try the zeolite water for the pulling method. My gums are not in bad shape but both my parents were cursed with bad teeth and ever since I turned 43 and 9 years later, I’ve been fighting to save my teeth from running away. The decay always starts down deep in the roots or at the gum line. I have started flossing of course. I’m trying to save the teeth that I have left. I have one that they just filled 2 months ago and has started to decay again at the root and they want to pull it because Medicaid won’t cover a crown for it or root canal because of the location of the molar. They, apparently think, I don’t need that tooth LOL
    Do you have any idea if zeolite can reverse decay or at least keep it from getting any further by killing off all of the bacteria? I’m trying to save this tooth. On the surface it looks fine because they did a huge filling and the problems are below the gum line at the root.
