3 Ways to Soothe Toothache Naturally
Posted on February 17 2020
Clove buds have been used for thousands of years to relieve toothache and is still one of the main ingredients used for soothing toothache. Clove has a natural ingredient called eugenol which is a natural anesthetic. Eugenol is also anti-inflammatory so if your toothache is due to inflammation it can also help solve the cause of your tooth pain. How to use clove? You can make your own clove oil by diluting 6 drops of clove bud oil into any food based oil like olive or coconut. Coconut oil is a great base to mix clove oil into because you can refrigerate it in small balls so it stiffens. Take a small ball of cold clove coconut oil and put it between your tooth and cheek. Allowing the coconut oil to melt around the affected tooth will help the clove oil have time to soak into your gums. Many pre-made products have Clove oil, our best selling Oil Pulling Mouthwash uses clove oil as an every day treatment to reduce inflammation and prevent toothache. Many products made from clove can be found online like this Eugenol extract.
2. Salt Rinse
Salt rinse is not only good for toothache but as a regular practice it can greatly improve the health of your whole mouth. Salt water draws out liquid from the gums which can be home to bacteria. Salt is also antibacterial. To make a salt rinse simply mix ⅛” teaspoon non iodized salt with 1 cup of warm water and mix well. Rinse with saline water for 1-5 minutes three times a day.
That’s right, household garlic may make your breath smell bad but it can help sooth tooth pain. For thousands of years garlic has been recognized for its medicinal properties. Not only does it help soothe tooth ache but it can also kill bacteria. To use garlic to relieve tooth pain simply crush a clove into a paste and apply it to the affected area or chew a clove near the affected tooth. As a bonus you will repel vampires and annoying co-workers too!
There are many ways to naturally soothe toothache from garlic to using products like our Oil Pulling Mouthwash. If your toothache lasts for more than a day you must go visit your dentist. Chronic toothache can be a sign of a much bigger problem. Oral health is the key to a happy life, when our teeth and gums are in good shape we can eat what is good for us without worry. We hope that if you are experiencing toothache right now this article has helped you find relief naturally.
