Maria Stathopoulos has this suggestion:

You can make your own mouthwash with  next to nothing.

Boil 2-3 sticks of cinnamon.
1 tablespoon cloves
100ml water.
Boil gently  for 3-5 minutes, turn off and allow to cool, strain into a clean bottle, add 6 drops essential oil of peppermint, and presto you have a nice healthy mouthwash.
