Clove Toothache Compress for Pain Relief

powdered, whole cloves, or clove oil. A clove oil compress seems to work the best,
especially if you’re too sore to put whole ones in your mouth.
Toothache Pain? Cloves to the rescue – ground – powdered – whole cloves
or clove oil.
Ground Cloves: This is something that a lot of people have in their kitchen. First, rinse your
mouth with warm salt water and wash your hands. Take a pinch of the ground cloves and
apply it between the gum that is sore and your cheek. Your spit does the trick now, just
wait while it mixes with the powder. The pain should subside rather quickly.
Whole Cloves: Rinse your mouth with warm salt water. Take 2 or 3 cloves and hold them in
your mouth as close to the sore area as possible, and wait a few minutes until they start to
soften. When they do get softer chew them lightly to release more of the oils, if you’re
not too sore.

You will need…
Clove essential oil
1/2 teaspoon of olive oil
Cotton swabs (optional)

to block it or make it hard to sink down into the sore spot.
Mix a few drops of clove essential oil with ½ teaspoon of olive oil. Thoroughly soak a
cotton ball in this mixture and then hold it gently but firmly against the sore tooth or gum.
If you wanted to take a shortcut, you could try putting some of the oil on a cotton swab
and dabbing it directly where it hurts, however, jabbing a cotton swab onto a hurting
tooth or gum may not be too comfortable.
