5 of 10

5. Lemon and Honey

The combination of lemon and honey helps to increase the production of saliva in the mouth which eliminates bad breath.

  • Into a glass of lukewarm water, add juice of 1 lemon and 1 teaspoon of honey.
  • Stir well until honey dissolves completely and drink it.
  • Repeat twice a day for a fortnight.

6. Lemon and Baking Soda

Lemon juice contains citric acid which has anti-bacterial effect on the odor-causing bacteria. Baking soda is alkaline in nature and works by balancing and neutralizing the acidic environment in the mouth (which causes a bad odor).

  • Squeeze the juice of 1 lemon into a bottle.
  • Add 1 teaspoon of baking soda and ½ cup of water to it.
  • Close the lid tightly and shake well.
  • Take 2 tablespoons of the resulting solution at a time in your mouth and swish it around.
  • Continue this for about a minute.
  • Rinse mouth well with water.
  • Repeat once or twice a day.

Note: You can also use a lime instead of lemon in this remedy, which will result in a slightly more bitter taste.
