The embarrassment of bad breath can entice us to use sugar and chemical laden breath fresheners which taste good and provide temporary relief, but which are likely to worsen the problem in the long run. You can fight bad breath naturally with the following alternatives.
Fennel seeds Chewing on a few fennel seeds can alleviate indigestion, nausea, and freshen the breath.
Mint leaves The classic remedy. Go for real fresh mint leaves rather the artificial kind pumped into commercial products.

Parsley My personal favourite, fresh parsley freshens the breath and is also a nutrient powerhouse.
