Cinnamon doesn't immediately come to mind as the cure for bad breath, but you'd be surprised what this ingenious spice can do for your morning mouth.

Unlike mint, which is only a temporary measure, cinnamon actually gets to the root of the problem, by killing off odour-causing bacteria. The International Association for Dental Research found that people who chewed cinnamon gum had a 50% decrease in oral bacteria versus people who chewed mint.

While cinnamon and honey sounds like a delicious combination, the sweet stuff is an essential ingredient because of its antibacterial properties. New Zealand Manuka Honey contains 127 times the amount of methylglyoxa - the antimicrobial agent that kills off bacteria, than acacia honey.

Combine the above ingredients with lemon and baking soda, and your bad breath could be a thing of the past. I donít need to talk about the benefits of naturally antibacterial, cleansing, and fresh lemon, but baking soda has the ability to Ďsweepí bad bacteria and has been shown to help whiten teeth, hence its use it toothpaste.

To make this winning mixture you'll need the following quantities:

2 lemons
1 tablespoon of cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoon of honey
Mug of cooled boiled water

Required ingredients


Boiled water is sterile, but the heat kills the benefits of lemon, so once the kettle has boiled, pour in a mug and allow it to cool to a tepid temperature, which can take about 15 minutes.



Once cooled add all of the ingredients and stir until fully combined.









Replace the lid and shake for 30 seconds.



Pour into the jar of water, stir, and cover with clingfilm.



Store in the cupboard (no more than 1 week), with the clingfilm kept tight over the jar and swill around your mouth morning and night for fresh breath. For a cooler alternative keep the mouthwash in the fridge for up to two weeks.
