A breath of fresh air from the Himalayas

Himalaya Mouthwash

A hint of orange around the snow covered peaks announces the advent of the morning sun. Green meadows with dew drops glistening like pearls carpet the land beneath the mountains. The fragrance of pine and fresh grass mingle with the early morning air to create an intoxicating effect. The train curves around the bend, hugging to the rails and chugging away in joy.

This is one of the blissful experiences that only travel can bring, you think, as you take in the beautiful vistas that parade before you as the train meanders languorously towards its destination.

What a sublime experience of the senses to wake up in the morning, you think.

You open your mouth to take in gulps of the fresh mountain air and that is when the entire dreamlike and surreal scene seems to crash in front of you like a house of cards.

You feel a sour taste in the mouth and your breath stinks. The spicy dinner that you had the previous night ensures that your mouth feels awful. The morning breath syndrome is haunting you again and souring your early morning divine experience. Apparently,  as you slept, millions of odour producing bacteria have had a ball in your dry mouth and no wonder your breath reeks when you get up.

Is this not a common scenario with us travelers? Aren’t we all looking for remedies to ensure that our early morning breath does not impinge on the lovely morning experiences?

Then, one fine morning arrived a hamper from a brand whose name itself evokes imagery of pristine landscapes and the freshness of mountain air along with the goodness of nature. We received samples of Mouthwash from Himalaya to try out.

Himalaya Mouthwash Review

Three bottles of Himalaya mouthwash nestled in the midst of a bunch of fake onions, freshness next to the symbol of obnoxious odour. Of course, no disrespect meant to the flavorful onions!

Himalaya Mouthwash

The Himalaya mouthwash range consists of 3 variants and each of them come with a unique flavor.

Himalaya Sparkling White Mouthwash

The natural goodness of Papaya and Pineapple comes alive in the Himalaya Sparkling White Mouthwash. A natural enzyme called Bromelian which is found in Pineapple acts as a whitening agent of the teeth enamel and removes stains gently and effectively leaving the teeth sparkling white within two weeks. Papaya has an enzyme called Papain, which again is s mild whitening agent and helps in removing stains. One rinse with the Himalaya Sparkling White Mouthwash keeps germs away for a period of 12 hours. There is no chemical bleach formula or alcohol in this Himalaya mouthwash. It also is free from fluoride.

Himalaya Active Fresh Mouthwash

The freshness of mint and Fennel merge together in the Himalaya Active Fresh Mouthwash to give a refreshing and cooling feeling in the mouth. Fennel oil contains Terpenes which has anti-microbial properties and helps in fighting germs. Fennel also helps in tightening the gums because of its astringent properties. Fresh breath for a long time is ensured by the analgesic properties of Mint and it is also a coolant which leaves a cooling and fresh taste in the mouth and provides a lasting freshness to the breath.

Himalaya Complete Care Mouthwash

As the name suggests, this mouthwash is a complete health package for oral health. Embellished by nature’s gifts to mankind, Neem, Pomegranate and Miswak, the mouthwash protects the teeth against germs and plaque and also ensures a fresh breath for 12 hours after rinsing. Miswak is the weapon that fights plaque and prevents tooth decay and also strengthens the gums. Neem is a herb that ensures total oral hygiene and possesses anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties. Pomegranate is another ingredient that helps in fighting dental plaque and also has astringent and anti-bacterial properties.

We found that the Himalaya mouthwash – all 3 variants from Himalaya start yielding results within two weeks of use. Early morning oral woes have vanished with the use of these Himalaya mouthwash variants. Mornings are as fresh as the pine scented air of the mountains and the Himalaya Mouthwash has ensured that the romance of early morning travel does not get soured by the obnoxious presence of bad breath.

Today our packing list for all our travels, whether short or long, whether international or within the country is incomplete without the inclusion of the Himalaya Mouthwash. Our backpacks now pack in a lot of freshness which go with us wherever we roam. Be it the deserts of Rajasthan, the lovely environs of the Alps, the romantic by lanes of Venice or the majestic grandeur of the Himalayan Ranges, the Himalaya Mouthwash come along with us.

We were asked to try out the Himalaya range of Mouthwashes and provided samples. However the experience and opinions are our own.

    I’ve never hear of this brand before, but I a always on the lookout for something else to try out so thanks for that! I wouldn’t know quite where to start looking for it, but I will definitely keep my eye open. The last mouthwash I bought was vile, so on to something new! 😀

    Glad to hear it worked for you! I do carry a fair few oral health items for travel so this could be worthwhile. Would be great if they sold handluggage size bottles too!

    I had no idea there was a natural enzyme called Bromelian in Pineapples that whitens teeth! This gave me the idea to eat more Pineapples 🙂 Great review!

    Haha I love that the mouthwash came with onions! Free onions to cook with! Anyways, I love that there’s no fluoride and chemical bleach. That’s the best.

    I have not heard of Himalaya mouthwashes and I am not sure if it would be stocked here in the UK. I am a big fan of using mouthwash especially when travelling. I would definitely try next time I am back that way.

    I really loved using Himalaya products in India, but they are not very easy to find now that I am back in Europe. I have seen one or two products in random shops, but I haven’t seen the mouthwash. I would love to try it though. Anything that transports me back to the Himalaya is good with me 😀

  20. Reshma Narasing Reply

    I have tried other products of Himalaya and liked them, but yet to try their mouthwash. With mouthwash being one of my essential items in my toilet kit, I think I should try this next time. Great review btw!

  21. Aparna Reply

    I do love the Himalaya products in general – shampoo and conditioners especially. Will have to look for this next time I’m in India!

    Wow, I didn’t know that Himalaya brand has this kind of products, I’ve seen Himalaya products whenever I go to a supermarket, but I’ve never seen this one. I truly try this cause I once used their facial wash before. Thank you so much for sharing and for the very nice and detailed review about this product.

  23. Stephanie Reply

    The complete care mouthwash sounds exactly like the one I need. It would also be great to have with me as I travel!

    I really love Himalaya! All products: shampoos, creams, natural medicines. Haven’t heard of this product though, now I need it!

  25. Neha Saini Reply

    Himalaya Herbals is one of the best herbal brands available in India in every aspect for teeth, hair or shin. Himalaya always had good result. I am sure about this new product also.

    This was probably one of the best reviews I’ve read. I was so into your intro I wanted to pack my car and head for a vacation. These sound like some great ingredients. I’ll pop over to their website for the full list. It sounds very interesting.

  27. Neely Moldovan Reply

    Sounds like an awesome option for mouth wash. The bottles are so pretty!

    These sound like a good solution for a not so great of a problem. I would be really interested in trying a few of these. The Papaya and Pineapple would be one I would like to try first.

  32. Divya Reply

    For a long time I just assumed mouthwash was simply for having good breath. I didn’t realize there were added benefits to using it! Thanks for sharing this 🙂 Papaya and Pineapple looks GOOD!
