I, for one, cannot think of the worst pain but toothache. It is the kind of pain that can ruin your day and night in one single strike. Fortunately, there is clove oil that has been known for and considered as one of the most popular natural home toothache remedies due to its antiseptic and anesthetic power.
There are, however, three important things that you really should take into consideration before using clove oil for relieving your toothache temporarily:
- Use clove oil only as temporary pain relief and not a permanent solution.
- Pure clove oil is very potent and it may burn your skin or cause you to vomit if you use it at full strength.
- Do a skin test to find out if you are allergic to cloves.
Please note that when you are allergic to cloves or if you do get any kind of allergic reaction from clove oil (during and after the skin test), do not follow this tutorial, and make an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible instead.
When you are not allergic to clove oil, please follow these simple steps on how to dilute clove oil with olive oil and use it to temporarily relieve your toothache:
What you need:
- 1 part of Clove Bud Organic Essential Oil.
- 2 parts of Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
- Cotton buds or bamboo cotton buds.
- A Mason Jar with Lids.
What you need to do:
- Pour one part of the clove oil and two parts of the olive oil into the small jar.
- Put the lid of the small jar back on, shake it until it dilutes properly, and the diluted clove oil is ready to be used.
- Brush your teeth as usual and drink some water (the clove oil can cause dryness or thirst). So, you’d want to drink some water first before you get thirsty, and get the urge to swallow the diluted clove oil.
- Moist a cotton bud with the diluted clove oil, apply it gently on/around your toothache and apply some more if necessary.
- Be patient and wait a few minutes until the clove oil works its magic.
- Make an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible for a permanent solution.
