Clove oil for toothache. We’ve all heard of that one, this wonderous substance acts as an anesthetic and soothes the pain when toothache gets the better of you and you can’t get to a dentist right away.
I always remember there being a tiny bottle of clove oil in the bathroom cabinate, the smell of it comes clearly to mind when I think of it right now. Actually the thought of toothache comes to mind too and that’s not a good image.
Anyway, what if you don’t just happen to have one of those natty little bottles in the house? Why not make your own.
Here’s how to make your own clove oil for toothache;
Simply crush a teaspoon of whole cloves with a tablespoon of olive oil.
Use a cotton bud to dip into the oil and press on to the sore gum/tooth area. Cloves are a great painkiller.
Don’t use this on babies who are teething, it is too strong.
