Green Tea

Green tea is one of the best natural remedies for dry mouth. Green tea stimulates the functioning of the salivary glands and also has antibacterial properties that can help to prevent cavities. It is recommended that you drink two or three cups a day. Note that green tea is a stimulating drink, so do not overdo it.  Also, if you have trouble sleeping, do not drink this tea at night.

Chamomile Tea

Chamomile helps keep your mouth moisturized. It is also a very healthy drink and you can enjoy as much as you would like. Although it is a plant with very few side effects, you must remember that chamomile in very high doses can cause nausea and vomiting.

Mint Tea

Mint is powerful. It is a plant used since ancient times for its pleasant smell and its various medicinal uses. It has digestive and antiseptic properties and helps fight oral infections. Mint tea refreshes the mouth and soothes mucous membranes. This infusion relieves the sensation of dry mouth and will help bring a feeling of freshness and comfort to your mouth. It makes sense that it works, since, mint is the flavor of almost all toothpastes!

Ginger Tea

Did you know that the ginger we use as a spice also has many medicinal properties? Ginger used in an infusion helps improve digestive problems. But what few people know is that ginger can also relieve dry mouth. Ginger tea has a spicy and peculiar flavor that stimulates the salivary glands and increases the production of saliva.

Licorice Tea

Licorice is another plant with many medicinal uses. Liquorice tea is excellent for relieving a dry throat. You can drink two or three cups a day to relieve symptoms of dry mouth.

One last tip: do not drink very hot tea because drinks at extreme temperatures (very cold or very hot) may irritate the mucous membranes of the mouth.
