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