4 of 10

3. Lemon and Salt

Lemon juice is acidic in nature which works to inhibit the growth of odor-causing bacteria in the mouth. A mixture of lemon juice and salt in water acts as a mouthwash and helps in stimulating saliva production. This prevents the occurrence of a dry mouth which is one of the causes of bad breath.

  • Add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice into a cup of warm water.
  • Add ½ teaspoon of salt to it and stir well.
  • Use it as a mouthwash to rinse your mouth 4-5 times.
  • Repeat the process daily.

Note: You can also simply squeeze a fresh lemon into a glass of water and either drink it or gargle with it to eliminate bad breath.

4. Lemon and Ginger Juice

Ginger juice works as a natural breath freshener when used along with lemon juice. It works to neutralize bad breath while lemon stimulates saliva production.

  • Stir in 1 teaspoon each of lemon and ginger juice to a glass of warm water.
  • Gargle 5-8 times with this mixture. Make sure to spit out the solution after gargling.
  • Repeat the method twice daily.
