Get a Taste of Delicious Home Remedies for Bad Breath

Rather than worry about what causes bad breath, find ways to make it better. Try eating these breath-friendly foods to make your breath smell its very best.

Cinnamon Spice is Nice

One of the oldest home remedies for bad breath is chewing on cinnamon sticks. These sticks are good for halitosis because cinnamon has an essential oil that kills bacteria in your mouth, which is what causes bad breath. Plus, cinnamon gives your breath its spicy, fresh scent to cover up bad breath immediately.

Freshen Up with Fresh Herbs

Another one of the proven home remedies for bad breath is chewing on fresh herbs. Parsley, mint, tarragon, basil, rosemary or any fresh herb with a lovely scent will mask halitosis.

Pick Crunchy Fruits and Vegetables

Dental experts say that crisp fruits and vegetables are great bad breath cures. Chewing on carrots, apples, celery, and other crunchy choices increases the flow of saliva, which washes away odor-causing debris. And the fibrous texture of fruits and veggies helps clean your teeth.

Get the Value of Vitamin C-Rich Fruits

Fruits high in vitamin C are excellent bad breath cures. Eating fruits like oranges, melons, grapefruit, and berries fights the bacteria in your mouth to protect your teeth and breath.

Feel Free to Chew Sugar-free Gum

Chewing sugar-free gum can really help halitosis. The chewing that gum requires stimulates your saliva flow to rinse away bacteria in your mouth and keep teeth very clean.
