Three Natural Breath Freshener Chews

An herbalist friend is always chewing on cardamom seeds, and it
smells wonderful to be near her.

Many plant materials are extraordinary at killing bacteria, and they can help combat gum disease. All three of these plant materials in particular kill bad breath:

clove buds
cinnamon sticks
cardamon seeds

Chew, taking care not to swallow.

Thank you Annie B. for these tips. I have never tried the cardamom seeds. Will have to soon.

Have tried them all, quite tasty although the clove bits can get annoying and the cinnamon sticks can break into a few shards here and there. Ginger is good as well, especially in a tea!

Interesting information. No sure about the cloves but I will definitely try the cardamom seeds.

I don't like cloves at all, but I would like to try the cardamon seeds. I'm a lover of garlic and onions, so this is great advice for me! Thank you!
