Today I’m going to talk to you about home remedies for toothaches. Toothaches can be painful whether you have a sore tooth or your baby is teething. I have three top home remedies for overcoming toothaches fast. The first thing that is vital to alleviating your toothache is essential oils. The best essential oil you can use, according to medical literature, is clove oil because it has the highest amount of antioxidants in the entire world. For a teething baby, you may want to take equal amounts of clove oil and coconut oil and rub it on the gum area. Secondly, sea salt is a great natural remedy for toothaches. If you take some sea salt and gargle it with water, making sure it swooshes around the painful area, it can help heal with it’s natural antibacterial properties. Lastly, peppermint oil has menthol in it, which can help numb that painful area of your mouth. Reducing or eliminating excess sugar from your diet can also be effective when overcoming your toothache. If you really want to get rid of your toothache, I would recommend swooshing sea salt in your mouth, then rub a clove and peppermint oil mixture on the tooth.
