It is very simple to get rid of bad breath. Here are some simple and easy healthy habits to eliminate the halitosis problems.
How to get rid of bad breath home remedies?
(1) Carry natural spices with you.
Try to carry natural herbs or spices along with you in order to chew after having food. Natural herbs like cloves, anise seeds, fennel seeds enhance good breath.
(2) Always carry a toothbrush to brush after meals.
Most of the bad breath problems can be eliminated temporarily or permanently through proper brushing. Bad breath is caused due to the food pieces left inside the mouth and stuck in-between your teeth. Therefore, it is very important to brush your teeth after each meal.
Regularly brushing twice a day can keep the bacteria and plaque away from your teeth. To get rid of bacteria, brush every morning and at night, before going to sleep.
(3) Floss it away
Flossing can prevent bad breath. While brushing your teeth keep away plaque and bacteria from the mouth, it is not helpful enough to clean some areas of your teeth. Hence, flossing is a perfect option. Using a dental floss, floss your mouth and this will reduce the pile of bacteria in your mouth and hence, stop bad breath.
(4) Using herb extracts, gargle your mouth.
Gargling is one of the great halitosis remedies. You can create your own home mouthwash to gargle. Extract the herbs like Calendula, sage, and myrrh gum in equal amounts and use this mixture for gargling 3 to 4 times per day.
You can also use salt water for your mouthwash. This natural mouthwash, along with helping you to eliminate bad breath, also helps you to reduce bacteria inside the mouth.
(5) Say no to odor-causing food items.
Some foods and spices cause a foul mouth smell. One of the halitosis remedies is to choose wisely on your diet. Some high protein foods, low carbohydrate foods, dairy products, vegetables such as garlic and onion and hot pepper oil produce a strong smell. These foods could be the reason for bad mouth smell.
(6) Rinse your mouth after having meals.
If brushing your teeth is not feasible, then rinse your mouth with water to get rid of the food smell. Rinsing your mouth must be done after having meals.
(7) Chew gum.
Mints or chewing gums can help you to lessen bad breath temporarily. Chewing gum stimulates the saliva production. When the amount of saliva is more in your mouth, it reduces bacteria. Sugarless gum having Xylitol sweetener helps to produce saliva and stop the reproduction of bacteria and this enhances mouth breath.
(8) Take care of your tongue.
Many people generally ignore to clean their tongue. The tongue is covered with filaments such as tiny projections. This filament traps food particles and bacteria and can also provide a haven for the accumulation of bacterial plaque. This can cause a foul smell. Hence, clean your tongue using a tongue cleaner or a toothbrush. You can also use oral cleaning devices or mouth guards for cleaning your tongue.
(9) Avoid some drinks and beverages.
Drinks like coffee, tea, and alcohol such as whiskey, beer, rum and wine must be shunned because these drinks leave a scum that can probably attach to your mouth diseases or infection. And this can affect your digestive system.
(10) Drink lots of water.
The best natural drink you can get anywhere anytime is water. Drink minimum 7 to 8 glasses of water every day to rehydrate your body. Water helps to flush out and eliminate bacteria from your body and reduce the number of anaerobic bacteria inside your mouth.
