When it comes to antifungal mouthwash products, it’s important to know what not to use as well as what to use.
If you want excellent oral health, I think it’s a bad idea to use mouthwashes that contain alcohol.
Listerine is a mouthwash that’s very commonly available in Australia and New Zealand.
Alcoholic mouthwashes are not good. Nor is chewing gum. Most gums today contain crappy sugars like high fructose corn syrup. They’re junk.
Also, be careful with pharmaceutical products because many contain drugs in them that have antifungal and antimicrobial properties, but they also destroy beneficial bacteria in the mouth.
If you think about it, there’s stuff going in your mouth all day, so it’s important to
rinse your mouth with fresh water when you’ve eaten and maybe brush your teeth.
It’s even more important to eat a good, fresh, natural healthy diet with fruits and vegetables and good proteins. Remember to avoid things like donuts, pop, and other sugary foods. If you eat unhealthy food, your breath is going to reflect exactly that.
Fresh foods. Fresh breath.

Crap foods. Crap breath.
You can fresh up your breath and keep it clean in healthy ways.
Oil pulling is a good antifungal approach to the mouth that you can do every morning. Put one or two tablespoons of really good quality of coconut oil in your mouth before breakfast and swish it around 10 to 15 times before spitting it out.
The oil will pull a lot of bacteria and fungal spores from the mouth. If you do that every day for about a week or two, you’ll notice that your tongue is cleaner, and your breath is sweeter.
Apple cider vinegar mixed with a bit of baking soda is another good one because it creates quite a big pH shift in the mouth, which really upsets fungi and bacteria.
They don’t like that much.
Take one to two tablespoons of cider vinegar, a good quality one like Bragg’s, for example, and then add about a quarter of a teaspoon of baking soda.
Mix it together and swish it around in your mouth.
Another option is to mix two drops of tea tree oil into ½ a cup of water. Swish that around your mouth and then spit it out. Do that before bed, but after you’ve cleaned your teeth.
You can also try brushing your tea with a little bit of sea salt or baking soda instead of fluoride-containing toothpaste.
Remember, eating good food is the foundation for good oral health. Good foods for the breath include herbs like basil, oregano, spearmint, and peppermint. These plants help freshen the breath naturally, and they also have antimicrobial properties.
