Hey guys, Dr. Axe here. Today, I'm going talk to you about home remedies
for toothaches. If you've ever had a toothache or you have
a young child or a teething baby that has a toothache, you know that those can be painful. Those can be nagging and they can really just
make you miserable. And so, I want to go over my top three natural
remedies for curing toothaches fast. The first thing you need to use are essential
oils. And the best essential oil according to the
medical literature is clove oil.
Clove actually ranks as the highest antioxidant
herb in the entire world today. So you can get a little bottle of essential
oils here of clove oil. You just take a… just one single drop and
you rub it right on the area. Now for teething babies, a lot of times what
you'll do is you'll take clove oil. You'll mix it with an equal amount of coconut
oil and then you'll use that, and rub it just right on the area. So again, you can see here, just take a bottle
of essential oil, a drop or two coconut oil. You rub it right on the area. There are several medical studies showing
that cloves or clove oil is so effective at actually helping heal and helping relieve
the pain associated with toothaches. If you don't have clove essential oil at home,
you can actually go to the store and actually buy just clove powder. Mix that with coconut oil and rub that on
the area as well.
But I will tell you, the oil of clove is the
most effective, even more effective than actually the clove powder that you'd cook with or bake
with at home. But again, if you don't have it, don't have
access, then doing some of the clove powder with coconut oil does work. The next thing you want to be doing is sea
salt. In fact doing sea salt in the area, gargling
and swishing around the area with sea salt. Sea salt actually has natural anti-bacterial
activities. It can actually have an analgesic effect on
the area. So again, swishing around some sea salt in
the area is also effective home remedy for fighting and healing toothaches. And last but not least, if you really want
to soothe or numb the area, peppermint oil.
Peppermint oil contains menthol which actually
can help numb that area as well. So what I would recommend, ideally, if you
want to help heal or cure a toothache, the first thing you would do is you would swish
around in your mouth for two minutes, you'll swish around sea salt. The next thing you do right afterwards, is
you would create a mixture of clove oil and peppermint oil and rub it directly on the
area. If you do those things together, you're going
to find it's really going to help you overcome that toothache very quickly. And let me say if it really gets out of hand,
obviously, you do want to go and see your local dentist or schedule appointment to see
a dentist. Some other things you may consider doing is
really backing off your sugar intake. You know, consuming sugar can feed yeast and
bacteria that can be causing a toothache, as well, or inflammation the area. So really reducing and eliminating excess
sugar intake can definitely help, another thing you may consider doing.
But remember, hey, you want to kick a toothache
fast. Remember these ingredients, clove oil, peppermint
oil, and sea salt are the most effective home remedies when overcoming toothaches. And hey, if you want to learn more about the
