A few steps can help alleviate bad breath and these can be something as simple as chewing some parsley, cilantro or basil during the day or after a meal. These little green sprigs are extremely rich in chlorophyll, which works wonders against nasty breath odors. Breath-aid can also be gotten from herbs, including rosemary, ginger, eucalyptus, cardamon, spearmint, or peppermint. These herbs are all rich in cineole, a strong antibacterial antiseptic. Thyme is another helpful herb due to its content of thymol, another antibacterial property.
