Here’s how to have a good breath! You will forget the mints

In some cases, regardless of the number of candy mint or swallowed brushings done, there is no way to overcome bad breath. Many factors account for a foul breath: garlic, residues stuck between teeth, presence of bacteria … But this is not inevitable! Here is a very effective natural recipe for lemon-based, honey and cinnamon that will freshen your breath.
What causes bad breath?
Bad breath affects about 25% of the world population. In over 80% of cases, this unpleasant smell is linked to poor oral hygiene: untreated caries, presence of bacteria, abscess, gingivitis, etc. But bad breath (also called halitosis) can also have gastrointestinal origins mucosal inflammation of the stomach or esophagus.

The main reasons for an unpleasant breath are bacteria: they feed on proteins, which then will release sulfur agents that cause unpleasant odors. These bacteria are found between the teeth and the bottom of the language, in places that contain less saliva (saliva naturally cleans bacteria).

mint lozenges only mask the odor for a short time, without treating the cause of the disorder, which makes them totally ineffective.

Here is a natural recipe with honey, lemon and cinnamon to combat bad breath naturally:


• ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

• ½ teaspoon honey
• Juice of 2 fresh lemons


• In a bowl, put the honey and cinnamon and mix with a tablespoon of hot water;

• Add the lemon juice and mix again;

• Stir the mixture and place it in a sealable glass jar, that you then place in refrigerator;

• Make a mouthwash with this mixture (30 seconds to 1 minute) and then swallow the solution;

• Repeat if necessary.

What are the effects of this natural recipe against bad breath?
Honey and cinnamon are two ingredients known for their antibacterial properties that help to overcome the germs and bacteria responsible for odor. The combination of honey and cinnamon gives a tasty mix that will not only reduce bad breath but also prevent colds and viruses because of their antioxidant properties that help enhance immunity. Lemon is not left out: this powerful antiseptic will overcome bacteria and therefore unpleasant odors. Finally, this natural mouthwash acts locally (oral cavity) and internally (when swallowed) to fight against the causes of bad breath, which explains its effectiveness.
