To overcome bad breath due to the development of bacteria in the oral cavity is using Siwak spray. Siwak solution is obtained through maceration. The maceration results went through several stages of testing, namely, organoleptic, pH, and antibacterial testing through Nutrient Agar (NA). Analysis of the quantitative data obtained using the Friedman method. The organoleptic results show that the concentration of 1% that was most accepted by 76.66% of the panellists. The optimal bacterial inhibition was at a concentration of 2%. The pH for the 1% Siwak concentration was the best matches.
