Halitosis, the technical term for bad breath, can be a real mood killer. It is caused by sulphur-producing bacteria on your tongue and throat. So how do we get rid of these nasties?
Thankfully, that nasty sulphur-producing bacteria is oil soluble, which means the safest and most effective way of removing it is with an oil! Water and brushing alone won't work against the tongue fuzzies and plaque that contribute to a smelly pout. Oil pulling breaks down the bacteria and plaque, leaving you with a fresh and clean yapper. It’s as easy as swish, swirl, and spit!
Clean Your Tongue
Keeko's copper tongue scraper is exactly what your mouth needs for the freshest breath all day long. The pure anti-bacterial elements of copper have traditionally been used in Ayurveda for centuries where cleaning the tongue every morning is considered as important as brushing your teeth!
This useful tool seriously reduces bacteria nasties on your tongue, helping keep it fur-free and breath smelling fresh.
Keeping hydrated is super important for a happy, healthy mouth! One of the causes of bad breath is dry mouth. So pucker up, put those lips to your water bottle, and drink up!
Change Your Toothbrush
Ever smelt your regular toothbrush? Yeah it STINKS! That's because you're hosting a major germ party on it. Keeko's Binchotan Charcoal Toothbrush has activated charcoal fromJapanese Ubame Oak blended into each nylon bristle that releases negative ions which help prevent bacteria from growing. No more stink mouth!
Not all causes of halitosis are the same, so we recommend checking in with your doc if symptoms persist.
