Peppermint is famous for its strong-smelling volatile oil, which some use to remove bad breath. You can chew some leaves after eating meals that have an unpleasant smell, such as fish, onions, or garlic, to give yourself a refreshing and pleasant scent.
You can also add it to cinnamon and drink it as a drink to get rid of bad breath as well. The surprising information is that dentists prefer to use toothpaste containing mint, not only to provide a fresh mouth, but also to combat cavities!
