Sometimes the root cause of halitosis (“bad breath”) is the digestive tract. Using one or two drops of the Peppermint and Ginger oil in water after each meal will aid the digestive system. Also consider using a digestive tract cleanse formula followed with a probiotic.

Patricia – Any ideas or solutions on bad breath or halitosis to be exact?
Marti – Patricia, commonly bad breath comes from the stomach probably a yeast/candida problem. 2 drops Oregano, 2 drops Lemon, 2 drops Tea Tree essential oil in a gel cap every day for 2 weeks then off for 2 weeks then start again may help.
Sam – For a breath freshener use Peppermint, drop it under your tongue or just in your mouth, and then swallow. One or two drops will be sufficient. Also, I brush my teeth with peppermint or wintergreen essential oil and my breath is so much fresher.
James – I would look to the gut as well. Be sure to make your diet more alkaline rather than acidic. It may help reduce the root gut issues.
