A Favorite Recipe for Dry Mouth

January 2020 – Providing end-of-life mouth care is a high priority at Hospice of the Northwest.

Mix together:

15 ml coconut oil

15 ml water

15 ml alcohol-free mouthwash

Apply a small amount to dry mouth and tongue every hour as needed.

We find this recipe both freshens the mouth and provides moisture.

Lip balms with beeswax and soybean oil can be used frequently for dry lips too.
