TOOTHACHE HOME REMEDIES & HELP FOR DRY SOCKET PAIN

you may want to mix the drop in 1/4 teaspoon of organic olive oil then dip the cottonball in the
mix. Clove oil is very potent but it's probably my favorite of all the toothache remedies!

and pack the socket with the cottonball infused with a couple drops of organic clove essential oil.

honey and gently chew it to release the essential oils. Or make a paste with powdered clove and
water or olive oil. Apply directly or use a cottonball.

may make your tooth ache pain worse for only a minute before the pain subsides.
GINGER ROOT - Chew a small piece of ginger root or make a paste with powdered.
ECHINACEA TINCTURE - Apply a few drop of tincture to the tooth and gums. This is one of
the best toothache home remedies as it will not only numb the pain but fight infections as well.

swallowing. Do the same for each mouthful until cup is gone. Sage is also a natural tooth
whitener!
OIL OF OREGANO - Oil of oregano is deeply penetrating and germicidal. Use directly on the
tooth or put a few drops on a cotton ball and wedge between bad tooth and gum.
ACTIVATED CHARCOAL - Charcoal has a great ability to draw toxins and can be very
beneficial for an abcessed tooth or just a toothache. Make a poultice and apply as long as
possible.
