You have probably heard about sore throat remedy or perhaps canker sore remedy. But what bad breath remedy? Is there such a thing? Of course it has and there is lots of it. Here are those:
Hydrogen peroxide and water. Mixing 1 part of water with 1 part hydrogen peroxide (3%) makes an effective bad breath remedy. This cleanses the mouth and kills the bacteria that cause bad odor. There is another way to use hydrogen peroxide as bad breath remedy particularly if sinus infection is the reason for foul odor. 5 to 10 drops of the same mixture can be dropped to each nostril. Expect a little burning, it is normal. Do this 2 times a day until the infection is gone.
Baking soda and water. A pinch of baking soda mixed with water is another effective and inexpensive way to treat bad breath.
Aloe vera and water. Extract aloe vera juice and mix it with water. The right proportion would be 1 tablespoon of aloe vera juice is to 12 ounces of water.
Water and salt. The good old water and salt solution is another effective bad breath remedy. Surprisingly, lukewarm water will do the job as well.
Baking soda and salt. 3 parts baking soda mixed with 1 part salt make a good toothpaste. Baking soda is effective in reducing the acidity of the mouth, which in turn reduces the breeding of anaerobic bacteria that cause bad breath.

Parsley, rosemary, basil, wintergreen, mint and thyme; chewing these herbal plants are affective in alleviating bad breath.
Fibers. Carrots, cucumber, and apple are fiber-rich foods that clean and floss your teeth naturally, not to mention the vitamins and minerals they contain.
