In bygone days, as a result of bad teeth, disease, unhealthy food and none of the accoutrements of oral hygiene, a very great percentage of the population suffered form bad (halitosis) and attempted to counteract the problem with a variety of breath fresheners ranging from sweet pellets of cloves and myrrh to cachous of rose and violet. The latter of course created a sickly odour which did nothing to remove the underlying causes of which halitosis is the result.
Eating strongly flavoured foods such as garlic, onion, cheese and beer leaves an immediate smell on the breath which is reasonably transitory but bad breath caused by smoking, catarrh, sinus infection, tooth decay, tonsillitis, constipation and stomach disorders requires a cleansing to get the body working properly. As any Victorian nanny would unequivocally have stated, ‘clean breath and a clear mind are the signs of a healthy body’.
Instant Answers for BAD BREATH
If the problem is digestive or a temporarily upset stomach then ½ teaspoon of kaolin powder or a few drops of essential oil of peppermint in a glass of warm water will soothe and improve matters.
If the cause of halitosis is a sore throat either honey and lemon or few drops of oil of cloves in hot water, to first gargle with and then swallow, will kill bacteria.
Any of the following chewed well will disguise the smell of recently eaten foods: parsley, mint, cardamom, cloves, aniseed, juniper berries, an apple, coffee beans, fennel seeds. All of these can also have the long-term effect of improving tummy upsets.
