Forget the harsh-tasting, chemical-laden mouthwash, and try something that’s a little gentler but just as effective. The Apothecary Herbal Mouthwash & Throat Gargle is made with pure spring water and potent essential oils, to leave your mouth clean and your breath sweet. Xylitol has been added, to protect your teeth from bacteria and keep your smile bright. While this is an excellent daily mouthwash, it also makes a soothing gargle, to treat the pain and inflammation of a sore throat. The Apothecary has used only natural, ethically sourced ingredients, so you can rest assured you’re getting nothing but the best.

How does it work?

  • Sodium bicarbonate (Baking Soda) has a mildly alkalising effect, which helps to get rid of harmful organisms. It also has a gentle bubbling action that will soothe a sore throat.
  • Salt is a natural cleanser, and helps to clear excess mucous from the throat.
  • Xylitol fights cavities and tooth decay, by neutralising the pH levels in the mouth, and preventing bacteria from sticking to the teeth.
  • Clove soothes pain and inflammation, and freshens the breath.
  • Peppermint is naturally antibacterial, and leaves your breath sweet and minty.
  • tea tree is anti-inflammatory, and also antiviral, antifungal and antimicrobial. Good for banishing all sorts of bugs and germs.
  • Eucalyptus is a great pain reliever, and is also antibacterial and antimicrobial.
  • Rosemary is antibacterial, antifungal, and has a soothing effect on sore throats.


  • Use ½ to 1tsp to rinse your mouth after brushing.
  • Gargle with ½ to 1tsp to prevent or soothe a sore throat.
  • Can be diluted to preferred strength.

I just love this brand. I blew a shit ton of money on products... basically because the packaging is plastic less and Victorian but i was pleasantly surprised by how good the actual contents are. I didn't know there was xylitol in this mouthwash when I bought it but I was delighted to find it on the list of ingredients since recently I read the actual research on how beneficial it is for oral health. The sweet and salty taste is a bit of a surprise at first but it takes about 3 seconds to get used to it and it is actually surprisingly Pleasant. This is an awesome product I will definitely buy it again.

I don't remember when last I have used gargle ever since going vegan. Best one so far. I use the cap lid and add some of the gargle and some water in it to gargle. Love the packaging too.

Love this product! Natural and doesn't burn my mouth. Pleasant taste.
Most important, it takes away and prevents red, inflamed gums with regular use.

Not sure how you gargle with half a tea spoon of liquid in your mouth. You have to mix it with water so that there actually is something to gargle - so a bit more effort and cleaning (a spoon and cup with each use).

Again, no clinical tests performed on final product after packaging and shipping? At least not advertised...
