Got a toothache and don't want to take painkillers for it or they don't help much? Do not worry, I've got you, I have just the tip for you - put a tiny drop of clove oil on it! Even the biggest throbbing pain subsides in minutes and lasts for hours. Trust me on this. You can put it on the tooth itself and on the gums too. I discovered this little beauty two years ago and never went without it since! I especially like the fact that it is simple natural solution and I can shun the drugs, since I don't like popping pills for everything, and if the pain is really bad, they never helped me much and you can't take your next dose for the next four hours. Whereas this is 100% natural product, no side effects and it works so well that you won't need it more than once or twice a day.
This is no long term solution though, book that appointment with your dentist now :)
You can rub the oil on it's own directly onto the affected tooth and the gums too, it is safe to use, but be careful not to spread it around too much or get onto your lips, because it will numb it. Use a cotton swab.
Clove is an evergreen tree, which produces a flower bud that has numerous medicinal properties. It is often referred to as clove bud. Clove bud has a shaft and a head and hence it has the Latin name clavus, meaning nail. Clove was extensively used in ancient Indian and Chinese civilizations and it spread to other parts of the world, including Europe, during the seventh and eight centuries. Even now, clove is used in several Indian and Chinese dishes.Clove is rich in minerals such as calcium, hydrochloric acid, iron, phosphorus, sodium, potassium, and vitamin A and vitamin C.
The health benefits of clove oil can be attributed to its antimicrobial, antifungal, antiseptic, antiviral, aphrodisiac and stimulating properties. The oil is used for treating a variety of health disorders, but the most important and common use of clove oil is in dental care. Can also be used for infections, skin care, DIY mouthwash, boosting the immune system, reducing stress and headaches, and so much more, although I have to admit I only used it for taking away the tooth pain and sometimes in the DIY mouthwash, so please do your own research and decide on the ways you will want to use it. Or not. I cannot be held responsible for what you will do with this information. Bear in mind that I am all-things-natural enthusiast and not a professional.(Disclaimer, because you simply have to these days, full stop.)
I hope this little tip will help any of you! Let me know your thoughts on it, have you used it before? Or plan to use it? Please share in the comments below.
That is all for now :)
Lots of love,
