Here are natural home remedies that have proven effective in getting rid of bad breath. It’s time to try the simple Ayurveda ways to freshen your breath naturally!
Natural Remedies for Bad Breath
Carry a Toothbrush. Brush immediately after the meal to remove the plaque after each meal and get rid of some of the breath problem.
Use Miswak Stick as a toothbrush or Powder as it strengthens the gums and prevents tooth decay and assists in eliminating toothaches and prevents further increase of decay which has already set in.
Rinse your mouth out. Go to the restroom after meals and get a warm salt water rinse. A salt water (saline solution) rinse can prevent the buildup of infectious bacteria in the mouth or throat.
Always gargle a minty mouthwash. Spice is Nice. For some quick fresh breaths before an important meeting chew a mint or some gum or pick up that sprig of parsley and chew it thoroughly. Carry a tiny bag of cloves, fennel or anise seeds to chew after odorous meals.
Chew a piece of lemon or orange rind for a mouth–freshening burst of flavor. (Wash the rind thoroughly first.) The citric acid will stimulate the salivary glands—and fight bad breath.
Chew a fresh sprig of parsley, basil, mint, or cilantro. The chlorophyll in these green plants neutralizes odors.
