Breath spray is a product that is sprayed into the mouth and intended to cover or eliminate bad breath temporarily. Its masking effect usually lasts between four and six hours. However, this spray can have a few unintended consequences. Using a breath spray can cause bad breath to reappear, causing you to smell stale for several hours afterward. In this case, you should avoid using it on a regular basis.

To make your own homemade breath spray, you need three simple ingredients and a glass spray bottle. You can use different sized bottles if you want to use one for different purposes. First, add essential oils and sea salt to a glass spray bottle. Make sure that the water in the bottle is filled 3/4 of the way. Shake the bottle well to combine the oils and the water. Repeat this step as needed. If you notice a noticeable difference, buy a commercial breath spray or make your own at home.



If you want a refreshing breath spray, consider buying a non-aerosol pump spray. These sprays are convenient to carry, and most of them are small enough to fit into a pocket or purse. Make sure to read the instructions before using one. Typically, you should shake the bottle well and spray one or two times into your mouth. If you're using an aerosol spray, be sure to shake it well before use.

Many breath sprays contain sugar or alcohol, which contribute to the production of acid in the mouth. This acidic environment encourages bacteria to multiply and increases your risk of tooth decay. Instead of these products, look for those that contain xylitol, which neutralizes mouth acid and kills cavity-causing bacteria. It's a convenient way to freshen up and maintain a pleasant and fresh breath without the hassle of chewing gum.
