Home remedies to get rid of bad breath

Bad breath can have disastrous consequences on your confidence and love life (in fact often on your social life as well). However, the following quick fix home remedies can help you get rid of this problem-

• Chew a stick of clove after every meal
• Mix a teaspoon of lemon juice in lukewarm water and gargle with it after every meal
• Chew mint leaves after your meals
• Chewing cardamom seeds can also help in getting rid of bad breath
• Make yogurt a part of daily diet
• Apples also help in getting rid of bad breath by killing the foul odor producing bacteria in the mouth
• Drink lots of water, as a dry mouth often causes bad breath
• Add a drop of tea tree oil to your toothpaste before you brush your teeth in the morning

Apart from these remedies it is absolutely essential to adopt good dental care habits, such as brushing your teeth before going to bed; rinsing your mouth after every meal and keeping your tongue clean etc. However, if nothing works please consult your doctor, as chronic bad breath could also be the result of infections in the throat, mouth or stomach.
