There’s nothing quite like a tooth ache. If you’ve got an infection in the gum around a tooth and bacteria is causing you a great deal of pain, give garlic a try before rushing off to the dentist and incurring a huge dentist bill.
Here’s what you should do:
Take a clove of garlic and crush it up, mixing it into a paste with a pinch of salt. I like to use my mortar and pestle for this. Then, just rub this paste into the gums and around the affected tooth.
Cold sores can be an unwelcome but common occurrence for many people.
Here are some natural home remedies that have been known to either reduce the pain associated with cold sores or help with the healing process.
1) If a cold sore is particularly painful, use a piece of ice to numb the affected area.
2) Aloe Vera gel is also a great way to reduce the pain associated with cold sores.
3) Dab the area with tea tree oil once in the morning and once at night. I always use tea tree when I get a cold sore because of its wonderful antiseptic properties and its ability to promote healing.
4) Pop a used green tea bag in the freezer and use it to ice the affected area. The frozen tea bag obviously has the same numbing affect as ice but the green tea is also a natural antiseptic.
