Mouth odour is mostly caused by an ailment called white tongue. A healthy tongue is meant to be red in color, so if your tongue has a different colour, then there is a problem. The tongue is coated with papillae – small nodules on the tongue that give it a rugged texture.
Home remedy for white tongue:
Baking soda is able to exfoliate the tongue, removing any residue that causes white tongue. It also helps maintain good pH levels in the mouth by neutralizing acids. Simply mix 1 teaspoon of baking soda with lemon juice until it creates a paste. Add the mixture to your toothbrush, then brush your tongue and mouth.
Thanks to the natural antibacterial properties of sea salt, gargling can help eliminate bacteria in the mouth that causes white tongue. The coarse texture of sea salt also works as an exfoliate. Combine sea salt and water to create a mouthwash. Use the mouthwash, then brush your teeth and tongue with the sea salt.
