11. Lemon Oil, Tea Tree Oil and Peppermint Oil

Tea tree oil is naturally anti-fungal and antiseptic in nature which helps get rid of harmful odor-causing bacteria in the mouth. Peppermint oil acts as a good natural mouth freshener by imparting a pleasant scent to it.

  • In a glass of water, add 3-4 drops each of lemon oil, tea tree oil and peppermint oil.
  • Swish the mixture around in your mouth for 1-2 minutes.
  • Repeat the swishing 4-5 times.
  • Rinse mouth thoroughly with water.
  • Repeat thrice a week.

12. Lemon, Ice and Cinnamon

Cinnamon contains a component called cinnamaldehyde which helps in eliminating odor-causing bacteria in the mouth. The act of sucking the candy stimulates saliva flow, making it effective in combating bad breath.

  • Put a small pinch of ground cinnamon at the bottom of an ice tray.
  • Fill the tray with cold water and squeeze half a lemon into it.
  • Stir each compartment a little and freeze for a few hours.
  • Suck on the resulting lemon juice candies 2-3 times a day.

Note: If the ice cube candies are too big, place them in a clean cloth bag and crush the cubes. Suck on the crushed ice whenever required. You can also add the crushed ice to your drinking water.
